Ipheoma’s Surrogacy Diary 28: True Faith

I didn’t get to attend church service this past Sunday because I was already on bedrest, so my husband bought me a tape of the Sunday service when he attended Mid-week service yesterday. I listened to it this morning and it struck several chords within me. The message talked about the many struggles people face at different phases in life and one line that struck for me was ‘As christians, we are exempt from problems in life. In fact, Jesus said in this world we shall have tribulation. Nevertheless, in the midst of it all, we should also remember that Jesus also said :Fear Not for I have overcome the world” it could seem as though there is no end in sight, but God would working something out for your glory.

It made me remember one of our darling members who had an IVF scheduled and on the day of transfer, the doctors could not find any opening into her uterus, so the embryos were not transferred. That did seem as a bump on the way and I can only imagine how depressed she must have been that day, but God had something miraculously planned. She got pregnant naturally in no time! I decided I was going to give my aunt the CD to listen to, so I called her and asked if she could drop by my place on her way home from work and she agreed. When she came, I gave her CD and after we had lunch together and chatted for a while, she left. I didn’t tell her what the message was about, only that I wanted her to listen to it.

When she called me this evening, she was crying and laughing at the same time. I am not returning that CD oh she said your pastor had me in mind all through his message. From the first time I had to remove Fibroid till date, as we are on this surrogacy journey, I have asked God why me? I have served him faithfully, but it seemed like the more I determined to serve Him, the more problems came. But I have no choice, He is God and whether I become a mother through surrogacy or through adoption or if he miraculously creates a new womb in my body or if I don’t even get any child at all; He is still God and I forever worship Him. This world is not kind to true christians, but He would keep us.

What faith! I told my friend who has been with me since last week that it is us TTC women that know how to worship God. It is so easy to worship and praise when things are going smoothly, but the real test of our faith is whether we would hold on during the dark days.

So, through this backache, cramping and bedroom confinement and cocktail of drugs, I would still praise God. :wohoo: Would you?

Goodnight sisters! :dust:
