Anchored in Hope
Friends, going through infertility is rough.
And yet, God is still so good. And He has provided so much relief and refreshment for me in the past year. I turned to John the other day and asked him, “What happened to the girl whose heart was despairing over an empty womb last year?”.
Believe you me, I still want children. Very, very much. But God has been faithful through the storms of infertility and proven that I have not only a refuge but an anchor is His Word and promises. And I am in no way saying that I am “cured”, I know that the desire for children and the pain of infertility is an ongoing struggle. I know that God is working though, and slowly molding and shaping my perspective to make Himself my number one desire and pursuit in this life.
One of the ways that God has so abundantly provided for me has been through community. I have found such solace in groups of other women, both online and in person, who have similar struggles. It is such a process to learn that you not only need God, but that you need others, can I get an amen? He designed us for community, and I have been so encouraged and helped by other women who have traveled this rough road of infertility.
I am honored to have been a part of one of these great communities in the form of a devotional book, Anchored in Hope. This is an incredible devotional book, written by 45 women who are struggling together. I had the great privilege of writing on the perspective of pain through the infertility journey, and I have so enjoyed reading the thoughts and perspectives of the incredible women who penned the other entries.
I’d like to give away a free copy of Anchored in Hope, so feel free to enter below.
