Children are a gift from God. This is something that we all know to be true, but it can be hard to remember when we are trying to conceive and it seems like nothing is happening. That’s why I want to share with you Psalm 127, which talks about how children are a blessing from the Lord.
As women, we often put a lot of pressure on ourselves to conceive and become mothers. But children are a gift from God, and He will give us as many as He sees fit according to His plan for our lives. Trust in Him, and enjoy this process of waiting for your child!
You are a Child of God
After starting to miscarry for the second time in a row, I felt defeated. The doubt, fear, grief, and anxiety that I had experienced just a month beforehand started to creep back.
But I refused.
I refused to let the enemy win. He wasn’t going to take a foothold on my life in this area or any area because I AM A CHILD OF GOD. Therefore, I am a gift.
I had to encourage myself in this way to appreciate myself as a future mother and become the woman of God he was modeling me to be by faith.
So I stopped.
I stopped with the negativity, the constant putting myself down, and began to lean on God’s promises. When I got pregnant with my rainbow baby I knew instantly how I would reveal it to my husband. I used the scripture Psalm 127:3. (check out his reaction below)
Children are a Gift from God
“Behold, children are a heritage from the Lord, the fruit of the womb a reward. Like arrows in the hand of a warrior are the children of one’s youth. Blessed is the man who fills his quiver with them! He shall not be put to shame when he speaks with his enemies in the gate.”
This scripture is so powerful and it was such a source of strength and encouragement for me when I was trying to conceive.
But it’s an encouraging reminder.
It reminds us that children are not only a gift from God, but they are also our heritage. They are a reward from Him, and we should be grateful for every child He blesses us with.
If you are currently struggling with fertility, I encourage you to meditate on this scripture and remember that children are a gift from God. He has a plan for your life, and He will bless you with children in His perfect timing. Trust in Him, and enjoy this process of waiting for your child!

Children are a Blessing
Many people see children as a blessing, and there are many reasons why this is the case.
First of all, children bring joy and laughter into our lives. They remind us to appreciate the simple things in life, and they help us to see the world through fresh eyes.
Secondly, children are a source of hope for the future. They give us the opportunity to watch them grow and learn, and they inspire us to be better people ourselves.
Thirdly, children remind us of what is truly important in life. They force us to put aside our differences and come together as a family, and they remind us of the things that really matter.
In short, there are many reasons why children are a blessing, but ultimately it comes down to the fact that they are a gift from God.
I know, while trying to get pregnant, it may seem like God is withholding this precious gift from you but I want to encourage you with one more scripture.
If You Desire to Have Children
“Delight yourself in the Lord, and he will give you the desires of your heart. Commit your way to the Lord; trust in him, and he will act.”
This scripture is a reminder that if we delight ourselves in God, He will give us the desires of our hearts.
And what could be more desirable than the gift of a child?
So if you are struggling with fertility, I encourage you to commit your way to the Lord and trust in Him. He will give you the desires of your heart, and He will bless you with children in His perfect timing.
