There are so many questions we ask of ourselves everyday. Why am I skinny? Why am I black? Why am I fat?
One question that families suffering from infertility ask themselves constantly is “why can’t I have children?” We may not ask it verbally or even in those terms, but the questions comes through our emotions when we see a pregnant woman and we sigh. It is seen in our tears when a Mother’s Day commercial comes on and we know we will not be participating in the festivities this year.
The question arises in our hearts and minds when we are alone, left pondering why me?
The truth is there is nothing wrong with asking the question, but we must be prepared for the answer we receive.
Not the simple answers that we hear.
“Relax, it will happen.”
“Don’t worry, there is nothing wrong.”
And even the age old, “In God’s timing it will happen for you.”
Those answers are cute, but nowhere near comforting when you are faced with medical proof that your chances of having children are slim to none without some sort of medical procedure and possibly not at all.
If you are truly going to ask the question, “Why can’t I have kids?” you must go to the source; the one that made you, your creator.
Have no fear; God is not scared of questions. I actually believe he welcomes them. This is his way of getting into a closer relationship with you. When you ask, he can answer and that begins a relationship with your creator. He’s waiting for you to come to him for guidance.
