Usually when two young people meet; they go on a few dates, may fall in love, may as well start a family. However, sometimes that doesn’t happen.
Last week I was at my aunt’s as we were making dinner, we were talking about people who have had miscarriages, expensive failed IVF transfers, and how God has seen some of them through those tough storms.
Having a 1% chance to conceive naturally and through a miracle. Actually getting pregnant only to lose the baby 6 weeks later. Experiencing failed IVF transfers. If that isn’t enough, facing the long road of international adoption but those doors keep closing as well.
To say such families get disappointed and discouraged is an understatement.
They may feel let down by God. They know having a family is a desire of their hearts and something He put there, so why face so much opposition?

You see, God never promises a perfect life. He does promise that he will be there every step of the way.
Keep your lives free from the love of money and be content with what you have, because God has said, “Never will I leave you; never will I forsake you”
He loves them, He knows their story and His plans for them are good.
It might not seem that way. It might feel like He is hiding or He’s silent, but He is in the midst of the storm with you.
He has not left your side. He’s cheering you on. He’s holding your hand. He’s walking up and down those hospital floors WITH YOU. He’s crying WITH YOU over the heartbreak you’re facing. Your story will be a beautiful one someday. Reminding yourself that He’s with you in it now can be what gets you through today.
He will change the song on your lips to one of thanksgiving, at his time.
