Anyone who has ever suffered infertility knows too well the roller coaster of emotions they go through.
One minute you are full of hope and happy the next minute you see a pregnant woman and everything changes.
I am not certain any other illness do this to anyone, maybe it does. For me having experience infertility as well as Other illnesses. I find that I am most affected by infertility than any other illness.
Why is this so? Maybe because having a child is a build in desire. A desire to birth, to want to procreate seems to trump any other desire.
Life has season, our seasons of infertility will come and go.
Weather we will be gifted with a child in the way we desire tile will tell.
But whatever the path we take to a new season, we must keep our identity in view.
We are not define by infertility, do not make it your identity, Do not class yourself as an infertile woman/man.
You are gifted with abilities and potentials, crafted in the image of the maker of the universe.
Delicately and wonderfully made,
Living in the abundance of His grace,
Wrapped in His beauty,
Fashioned with the best of His storehouse.
