Infertility & Dreadful Surgery Gave Birth to Renewed Relationship
Anna has been a faithful server at the College Student Outreach since it started. But the biggest struggle in her life is that, for many years, she’s been unsuccessful in conceiving a child. It wasn’t till this year that she found out it was due to a condition that she had, and she needed surgery. Before the surgery, Anna began to see the sin of pride in her life: for she’d always blame her husband for infertility. she had very good physical health so the problem can’t be her. Once she repented of this and reconciled with her husband, their relationship saw tremendous breakthrough. It was then that Anna started to realize her biggest problem is not her inability to be with child but the areas in her life that have needed breakthrough. Also Anna said it was such a humbling experience to lie on the surgery table, being naked and powerless. She really experienced what Job described: “Naked I came from my mother’s womb, and naked I will depart”. There was nothing she could do but submit herself into God’s hand. This seemingly negative experience renewed Anna’s relationship with God and with her husband, brought her understanding of her frailty; and now Anna loves God more than ever.
