Recently, we've been doing a "couples of the bible" study in our sunday school. Its interesting to me several of the first women mentioned in the bible suffered from infertility at some point. Sarah, Rebekah, and Rachel (so far that's all we've studied) What was the purpose of that infertility? To prove that God could do miracles (think of how old Sarah was) or build character, or to have the people prove their faith in Him? I'm leaning towards showing that these children born to the infertile women were miracles. How could they not be?
The thing that is discouraging, however, is the whole "in His timing" deal that they all went through. I hate waiting. I hate not knowing. I hate that I can't be in control!
Obviously, I'm a very impatient person. Waiting to get the phone call today should be torture, as it always is. I get yucky butterflies in my tummy and get very restless. When I think about it, I already feel like that.
God, please give me peace today.
