Fertilization of the heart

Alright, I know the title may have you wondering what I'm going to blog about.  So, here it is.

 With everything that has (not) happened over the last six months, I can't help but feel as if I have done something wrong that the Lord would not bless Luke and me with a child.  I see people around me having babies outside of marriage, people having babies that they don't take care of, even people getting pregnant just by thinking about getting pregnant (or so it seems).  The selfish side of me can't seem to comprehend why God allows those people to bear children and not me.  What did I ever do that was so wrong that I would have trouble bearing a child?

As my heart seeks for answers at 12:30 in the morning, I'm reminded of scripture.  Specifically, the story of Abraham and Sarah.  Abraham and his wife, Sarah, received their first child when he was 100 years old and she was 90, because they exhibited faith in God's promise to them.  I, of course, do not want to be 90 years old before I bear my first child, but their steadfast faith in the Lord encourages me.  Even after all of those years of yearning for a child to call her own, Sarah kept her faith in the Lord and His promise to them.

As Sarah did before me, I too will seek the Lord for His will in my life.  I will keep my FAITH in HIM, for HE has placed this desire in my heart.
 
~*Delight yourself in the LORD, and He shall give you the desires of your heart. Commit your way to the LORD, trust also in Him, and He shall bring it to pass. ~ Psalm 37:4,5*~
