Someone posted this article on facebook and I thought how appropriate for all Christians to hear and read.
God created us to live with a single passion to
joyfully display his supreme excellence in all the spheres of life.
No matter what you’re going through…you are supposed to live with passion and joy for God. That is incredibly hard sometimes, maybe even all the time. I often feel like I don’t deserve to be going through infertility…I don’t understand what God is trying to teach me. Maybe one day I’ll know, and maybe I’ll never know until I reach Heaven. But what is clear, is that I should be joyful in it, through it and after I’m out of it.
Through these last three years, I’ve had my ups and downs with God. But most recently, I’ve just been pissed at Him. Like a kid who can’t get their way, I stomp my feet, throw temper tantrums when no one is around and shake my fist. Begging, please please please, can you please give us children?! If I were to imagine how an earthly parent would react to a request from their child of this nature, I can see why the parent would say no. And as my tantrums with God don’t seem to be working…I’m going to have to try this joyful approach. I’m going to have to sit quiet and listen to what He’s trying to teach me. I don’t want to…but if I don’t, then I might miss out on something great.
