Coping with Barrenness

How do you cope with being barren when everyone around you has children? When everywhere you go you see pregnant women and babies, but most of all it’s at the forefront of your mind. Even when you’re not trying to think about it, it’s there.

How about those times when you really needed  someone to confide in about wanting a child, only for them to judge you, not understand you, brush you off, thought you were going overboard, and just let you down.

What many people don’t understand is that being barren is one of the hardest things for women to freely talk about. Being barren makes you feel worthless, embarressed, not a woman because God did say be fruitful and multiply. It makes you feel vulnerable. It makes you fearful and it throws a lot of your life off track.

I’ve been there ladies! Everything I just wrote I had to deal with on a regular basis. So right now I want to show you how to refocus,  put all your attention on God’s promises for your life. What has the Holy Spirit told you personally? Do you still believe it? Do you believe you can bare a child? Or are you afraid you may have a miscarriage again? Or afraid of what people might say because of your age? Where is your faith meter? Is it a 2? A 7? Where is it?

Build your faith back up ladies! Stop listening to what  doctors and people have to say and believe what the Word says. I challenge you to dig into your Bible and get a new revelation on how so many women in the Bible overcame barrenness. You would be surprised!

In my next few blogs I will be giving you encouraging scriptures that will help you to your next! Make sure you do a self-examination. Forgive, repent, and let go! Believe God and watch God!

    I’m proud of you cousin. I can’t wait to hear your story. What an awesome ministry. I still want another child…I’ve been barren for nearly ten long years, but I still hope and pray for God to bless me with mire children. Thank you for this. I love you.

    Praise God for these amazing words of wisdom Shante Green and for your testimony! You have a handsome son! It is true there are several women in the bible who dealt with barrenness, but with a sincere heart of trust, belief, and faith in God they received their miracle; their own baby. My favorite was Sarah. She was very old and barren, she laughed when told by an angel of God that she would have a child, but God kept his promise, she had a son his name was Isaac. No matter what trust God He can turn your barrenness into a Blessing :mrgreen:
