Dancing Upon Barren Land

I stumbled upon this blog today as I was looking up Christian Infertility blogs.  It's called Dancing Upon Barren Land.  I love how its website says "It's Spiritual Nourishment for the Infertility Road."  One of my favorite characteristics about the website is that it offers devotionals which cater to infertility patients.  I could really relate to today's devotion, "Anger: Infertility's Fire Starter."

Anger was an understatement for how I felt.  Boiling.  Livid.  Rage.  Resentful. Annoyed.  Irritated.  These words describe better scratch the surface of just how angry I was during our journey to parenthood.  I harbored so much anger that I alienated myself from friends and family.  I loss important friendships over others' inability to understand our situation.  I was bitter at anyone who had what I didn't. 

I know these aren't healthy attitudes.  Believe me, they took their toll on me and anyone who was surrounding me.  Something that I found comforting though is knowing I wasn't isolated in my anger.  There are so many other couples who knew first hand what I/we were going through. 

Go check it out...

By the way, if you are an infertility blog and would like to be listed under my support circle page, please let me know.  Also, if you have a bible verse which is comforting to you, its likely to be a comfort to others.  Let me know what verse and I'll add it to the Bible Verses page.

Be blessed!

Recent God Sighting...

Hello friends!  It's been a very long time since I posted, but I will say I have continued to pray for you all over the months.  I experience God in a huge way this week regarding infertility, as a friend of mine shared she was having trouble conceiving.  She and her husband had been trying to grow their family for four years and had become licensed several months ago in foster parenting.  I had no idea...

Ever since she shared with me, I have been burdened for her and prayed for her often.  On Tuesday, I had an overwhelming burden for her...  She was so heavy on my heart.  I prayed for her and I struggled whether to share with her that I had done so, but I decided to send her an email.  I'm sooo thankful I did, because God showed up in a mighty way for her (and me!) later Tuesday morning.  It's almost as if as soon as I got the words out of my mouth, God moved...big time!  You can read more about that here.

How are all of you?  Have you seen the Lord moved recently?
