Mother’s Day and infertility
Celebration of mother is approaching in the UK. On the 31 March we will celebrate and acknowledge mothers
The airwaves, Churches, schools will put up a show to celebrate mothers. It is fitting to do this.
This is a particularly difficult time for anyone who’s trying to conceive.
As you watch others being celebrated a part of you always wonders when you too will be celebrated.
Celebrating mother’s on this day doesn’t take away from what you are experiencing.
If anything this celebration makes me focus even more on my demise. However dark and grim the situation may seem. Let me encourage you to focus on this one truth. This too will pass.
How and when I do not know. Let your trust be fully placed on the master.
Be reminded of this.
Though the fig tree do not blossom,
nor fruit be on the vines,
the produce of the olive fail
and the fields yield no food,
the flock be cut off from the fold
and there be no herd in the stalls,
yet I will rejoice in the Lord,
I will joy in the God of my salvation.
God, the Lord, is my strength;
he makes my feet like hinds’ feet,
he makes me tread upon my high places.
Re phrased it becomes
Thought my body will not respond to treatments and my monthly flow remains uncertain
Thought my womb refuse to yield and bear children as I get on in age.
My eyes will remain fixed on the Lord who is my strength. He alone will carry me and bring me into His perfect plan for me.
Sometimes we go through seasons of hardship, loss and deep pain. But no matter what we’ve lost, or wanted but never had, we can like Habakkuk rejoice in our relationship with a loving God.
Even when it feels like we have nothing else, He will never fail or abandon us.
He is the One who “provides for those who grieve His is our ultimate reason for joy (Isaiah 61:3).
Don’t endure Mother’s Day, celebrate it by fixing your eyes on him who loves you beyond reason.
Celebrate the unique experience of waiting and the worthiness of what he is fashioning within you.
Celebrate the person your are becoming as a result of the experiences you are face with
