Struggle to Strength: Miscarriages, Childlessness

In a world where the struggle with miscarriages, stillbirths and childlessness is on the rise, many couples find themselves wrestling not only with the physical challenges, but also with the profound emotional toll it takes on their lives. The emotional status of these couples is a combination of hope, despair, and resilience.


Despite these difficulties, couples are choosing to trust in God’s perfect timing as Proverbs 3:5-6 guides their hearts: “Trust in the Lord with all your heart, and do not lean on your own understanding. In all your ways acknowledge him, and he will make your paths straight.” This unwavering trust becomes a source of resilience as they navigate through the uncertainties of their journey. Majority of them find the verse Psalms 34:18 assuring, as it states “The Lord is near to the brokenhearted and saves the crushed in spirit.”


History reports the existence of a man named Job who lost all of his sons and daughters, also his wealth. The people around him mocked him with provocations to reject God from his life. Yet, he believed and prayed to God alone. He was strong enough to pray “Naked I came from my mother’s womb, And naked shall I return there. The LORD gave, and the LORD has taken away; Blessed be the name of the LORD.” (Job 1:21). The Bible, echoing Job’s experience, declares in Psalm 127:3 that children are indeed a gift from God. Sometimes, the manifestation of these precious gifts may face delays, or God’s plan may unfold in unexpected ways. Job’s story encourages us to trust that God’s plan ultimately unfolds for the best in every circumstance..


To the couples endeavoring through similar pain, Isaiah 40:13 says: “But they who wait for the Lord shall renew their strength; they shall mount up with wings like eagles; they shall run and not be weary; they shall walk and not faint.” It’s a reminder that, even in the waiting, there is a promise of renewing strength in God’s time, joy will replace sorrow and fulfillment will follow the anguish.


The couples who trust in God’s timing are a testament of endurance and unwavering faith, though they struggle. While the journey may be tiring, the comfort found in faith becomes a guiding light while navigating through this challenging terrain of miscarriages and childlessness
