I’m not strong!!!

Over the past years while David and I have dealt with infertility I have been told many times how strong I am. Today I feel so weak. I feel so inadequate. I can not understand how in times of sorrow, loss and anger that people can stand and be so strong. I have faith in God and I know he has a plan for my life but sometimes it is so hard to stand up and be strong. When looking at the stuff people around me have endured during the past few weeks (friends husband died, and a couple in our church lost their 14 month old) I just feel like I would never get through the losses they have suffered. Why can’t I be strong? Why am I so weak? How can I be a stronger person?

    Hi Donna,

    I don’t know you, but I know infertility. The good news is, you don’t really have to be strong. If you were strong you could handle life by yourself, and there would be no need for a God to carry you. There would be no place for His strength, for His guidance. You could navigate the murky waters of infertility–and the other struggles life brings–in your own strength without having to rely on His. Scripture tells you that His strength is perfected in your weakness, and that His grace is sufficient for every situation where you feel you just can’t go one step further.

    Infertility is hard, no matter the struggles those around us face. Falling into His arms when your strength is gone is a good place to land.
