Satan can cause us to worry about many things when it comes to infertility. Our health insurance covered no infertility benefits whatsoever, so I remember worrying about the cost, and how much we, especially my husband, would be willing to pay. I fretted about the unknown. Would this ever end with me having a baby, or would our first “baby” – my black lab – be my only baby?! Worry was stealing my joy.
I talked to God and asked – cried – did He want me to keep going through this? And faithful as He is, a very present help in trouble, the Lord led me to my Psalms (and my Streams). It was January 23rd, 2002. I knew immediately my verse for today was Psalm 113:9 – my verse! Psalm 112:4 encouraged me, too. I know God is here.
“God is our refuge and strength, a very present help in trouble.” Psalm 46:1
“He maketh the barren woman to keep house, and to be a joyful mother of children. Praise ye the Lord.”
“Unto the righteous there ariseth light in the darkness: he is gracious, and full of compassion, and righteous.” Psalm 112:4
