It’s Not About a Baby
Did you know our journey isn’t about a baby? “Sayyyy whhhhhat.” Yup, that is right. It’s not about a baby. Yes, that is what we are waiting on, but our wait is about so much more than us having a baby. It’s about the journey, not the end result. I am not saying that our babies aren’t important because of course they are. But God is creating a work in us while we wait that is so much more important than what we are waiting for.
If it were just about having a baby, God would have made it happen already. Instead, he is making us wait on him. There is always purpose when he places us in the waiting room and it’s not tease us or to torture us, but he makes us wait because he loves us and he wants the very best for us.
“Not only so, but we also glory in our sufferings, because we know that suffering produces perseverance; perseverance, character; and character, hope. And hope does not put us to shame, because God’s love has been poured out into our hearts through the Holy Spirit, who has been given to us.” Romans 5:3-5
It is through the trials that he is refining us to become more like him. He is producing in us perseverance, character, hope and so much more than that. He is teaching us patience while we wait and he is writing a testimony that is so much bigger than we can even comprehend.
What are you waiting for? You might be reading this blog because like myself you are also going through infertility. But, maybe it’s different. Maybe you are waiting for a spouse, a restored marriage, a job, or something else. Remember to seek Christ more than what you are waiting for and when you do your trial and time of waiting won’t be wasted, but instead it will be a time of growth as you are refined to look more like Christ!
