Motherhood, Sweet Motherhood!
Happy Mother's Day to all the moms out there!
Here is what I have received for Mother's Day. My rose bush out in my garden even had two presents for me today!!
Joshua made a card in school. What he wrote in it was all from him. Be still my heart! Thank you God for blessing me with such a wonderful and loving family.
Mother's Day use to be a VERY hard day for me due to infertility. I refused to go to church on Mother's Day because motherhood was a heavy desire for me. It wasn't that I didn't want others to be Moms and celebrated, it just hurt so much that I wasn't one.
God led me through a very difficult trial with infertility. During the midst of it, I was very distraught and angry. Especially angry with God for making me struggle through it.
Now, on the other side of the trial, I can see that God had MUCH greater plans than me. Had I received the answers to my prayers at that time, I wouldn't be the mother of my two precious kids.
Going through infertility also eventually led me back to God and I am a much better person now. Not only do I have two ministries to witness to: Infertility and Adoption, but I am a much stronger and secure person for all that I went through.
For those of you that are still struggling and hate this day as I once did, your day IS coming! I know it is hard to believe but God has much greater plans and through the fire you will come out a refined and better person!
Jeremiah 29:11, “For I know the plans I have for you. They are plans for good and not disaster, to give you a future and a hope.”
