was at the darkest and most difficult time in my infertility struggles, I was
invited by a friend to a prayer retreat. She knew of my struggles and wanted me
to be a part of this retreat and so I went, not wanting to pass on any chance
for my prayers for children to be answered. I went, knowing I had to put all or
nothing on the table and this relates particularly to speaking my shame in
front of everyone and being broken and expectant before God.
us that went came to meet God on another level as it relates to answers to deep
groanings of our heart.
other day, after many years, I saw one of the young ladies who were at the
retreat. I was holding my daughter and she was so excited to see me. I also
told her that we have a son and she wanted to meet him immediately. We began
talking about the retreat and she went on to tell me that she too had received
her answers from God. She wanted to be in a healthy marriage and also wanted a
business opportunity that would give her a sense of self sufficiency. She
testified to me that she got her answers.
conversation then went on to us talking about being mindful of how God works as
it relates to him answering our prayers and
most importantly, how we prepare and align ourselves to receive these answers,
knowing fully well, that he does answer prayers in his own time. The thing is, and I do believe this wholeheartedly, that if he does
not think that we are ready to receive these answers, then we can pray until we
are blue in the face, none will be forthcoming.
continue to seek God to answers to our prayers, let us be reminded of this and be encouraged.
