“You shall be blessed above all peoples; there shall not be a male or female barren among you or among your livestock.” – Deuteronomy 7:14
I was given this verse by my dear friend Caryl a couple of weeks ago and I’ve been trying ever since to pop it onto meetingmolly – but boy have there been some BIG posts to capture recently. This is big too, in its own little and charming way (ha ha).
We met with our neighbours (a lovely Christian family) some weeks ago to tell them our IVF news and to ask for their prayers in this regard. We chatted for a long time and one of the stories they told us was about a lady who had been infertile for many years and when she was finally blessed with a pregnancy it seemed that all around her became fertile too – she went to her family farm and all the cattle and animals conceived while she was there! Talk about spreading baby dust in her wake. It was an unbelievable story, so bizarre it could only be true. I come from a dairy farming family so this story really touched me.
Lo and behold, not even days later, Caryl gave me the above scripture verse. I love it! I am treasuring it along with all of God’s other promises and blessings we’re experiencing along this journey. Hallelujah!
