Just when you think you have overcome the pain of infertility, it has a way of creeping back up. You see a baby in passing and feel that sting in your heart. When you see the pregnancy announcement on facebook the sting is there. When that time of month comes, the sting is there. There are always little daily reminders of your sense of failure. Your failure to “produce” a child. The sting will never truly go away, however, God can help you cope with it everyday. The Bible tells us in 1 Peter 5:7 to “cast your cares upon Him, becuase He cares for you.” He will help strengthen you in your weak moments. He will help those scars on your heart that constanly reopen to heal once more.
The sting might never truly go away and that is ok, but how you deal with the sting is what matters. Don’t allow the stings to turn into jealousy or bitterness. Don’t allow the stings to constantly be a weight you carry everywhere. Let the stings come and pass without making you feel defeat. Allow the Holy Spirit to help navigate those stings in your heart. Call upon your friends to help you pray about it. Call upon Him to restore your reopened wounds. The sting is always there but that doesn’t mean the bitterness should be there too. Remember, you are always VICTORIOUS in Christ!
“casting all your cares on him, because he cares about you.”1 Peter 5:7 CSB
