Infertility can change you, some ways for the better and some for the worst. One way I’ve seen where it can change you is, it can harden your heart. Your heart can become bitter and hardened towards others, especially those that are parents. It doesn’t come all at once, it is a slow progression over time, it builds, it festers, it DESTROYS. This is how Satan will try to grab a hold of you. He wants you to be hardened in your heart, he will use that hardness against you, to create division. He want the hardness to create bitterness. He know that bitterness is one of the hardest things to overcome.
Being able to love others is a result of God in your life. It’s not talking about romantic love either, but about choosing to love someone in spite of their weaknesses, differences, or the fact that they’re fertile. It is being generous to those who don’t show generosity themselves, that is the kind of love God is mentioning. Fight back Satan by allowing God to soften your heart. Pray for that Godly love to flow through your veins. As a child of God take action and choose to sacrifice yourself and love others, even the ones who constantly remind you of what you’re missing. It isn’t easy, but in the end the reward will be worth it. Show the love of God next time and feel your heart change for the better.
“Beloved, let us love one another, for love is from God, and whoever loves has been born of God and knows God.”
1 John 4:7 ESV
