We Can't Earn A Child

Dear Lord,

What do You have for us next? I just watched a video about adoption and sobbed through much of it. Is that our path? The couple in the video struggled with infertility for nine years!

Please guide each of our decisions. I am trying chiropractic. Some people suggest cutting out products with chemicals (shampoo, deodorant, etc.), others say to go the testing/treatment route. Please guide us in timing and each step.

May we rely fully on You, not making family ultimate. Our heart's desire children, and we trust You as the Giver of life. Protect us from the trap of trying to earn gifts from You. We do not deserve children. May we be reminded that Christ was the ultimate gift and that we have received salvation through Him. Help me to grasp that truth.

In Jesus' Name,

I figured out why God hasn’t given us a child yet. If we had a child or were expecting one, we would have been less willing to move away from family again. That must be the reason. I’m sure we will conceive as soon as we have obeyed his call and life has settled down.

“They” say that moving causes stress and stress contributes to infertility anyway. So, I’m going to say no to the HSG for now.

I heard that chiropractic care can help women get pregnant. Since nerves control organs, apparently the wrong pinched nerve could cause fertility issues. My lower back has been messed up for a while. I will try the chiropractor until we move.
