Test of Faith

Why do bad things happen to good people?

Infertility has truly tested my Faith in God! One day we will be blessed abundantly for our patience and loyalty to God...

God tests us so we can experience victory. He walks in faith and believes we will win every test. He is like a proud parent who tells their child to "Go out there and show them what you can do," expecting them to win…but what if I don’t win?

It’s hard not to feel defeated at times or overwhelmed by all the pregnancy’s that surround you…it’s hard to not question why are bad things happening to you (and me)…I know so many deserving couples who would long to be parents (Zach and I included), why can’t our dreams come true…

I’ve had to dig really deep and understand that bad things aren’t happening to us, we’ve just been placed on a different journey in life—it’s up to us to decide how we choose to deal with this journey. It’s natural at times to feel jealous that something that may seem better is happening to all your friends…it’s easy to wallow in self pitty…or we can be joyful that were living another day and have an opportunity to learn from this experience…we can feel angry at God for what we do not have, or thank him for all that we do have…

I truly believe that infertility is a test of Faith…it sure has tested mine.

In honesty, Faith is main thing that has helped me throughout this journey…Faith that one day I will see a positive pregnancy test, one day I will see my babies heartbeat, one day I will feel my babies first kick…and I will one day get to hold my child in my arms. Having Faith has helped in more ways than I can count!

I tell you the truth, if you have faith as small as a mustard seed, you can say to this mountain, "Move from here to there" and it will move. Nothing will be impossible to you.

- Matthew 17:20

I have faith that you will experience all of those things very soon my sweet friend. Faith is all we have as we go through infertility. We need to hang on tight to our faith!

Keep that faith Tiffany! God will not leave you or your desire to have children. He promises us that if we have faith, it will come to pass. God is never in a hurry, but He's always on time!!

I agree with you. My faith has grown tremendously as I've learned to trust God's plan throughout our infertility journey! And, as we were led to pursue embryo adoption, my husband and I realized that God is using us to shine His light in a different way. Keep the faith and thanks for letting God use you to reach others!

I 100% am behind you on this post. Faith is something that is deffinitly tested during this time. Keep that Faith! We may be in a hurry, but God sometimes wants us to slow down. You are wonderful and I pray that some day you will hear that little heartbeat!
