Do You Believe in Angels?

Among the many encouraging people that have spoken over my life & over my womb, one day a very tall, dark-skinned man knocked on my door.  I opened the front door but let the screen down to speak with him through a still locked door.  He said that he was in the neighborhood surveying my neighbors’ roofs for repair.  He asked if he could go on top of our house to take a look.  I told him that I didn’t feel comfortable doing that without the man of the house, who was at work, consenting to it.  He nudged forward a little but I stood firm in my decision.  He settled back to sit on the porch, folded his arms & began to tell me a little about himself.  He knew the word of God and began telling me about my husband.  He spoke about what type of man my husband is and how he is honored in his own home.  We spoke for a few minutes, as gospel music rang loud from my computer behind me.  He tilted his head and squinted his eyes and asked me a question that made me tilt my head & squint my eyes back at him… “Do you have a daughter?”  I replied, “No”.  He asked again, “So you don’t have a little girl?”  Again, I said, “No, why do you ask?”  He said, “I see your little girl in the spirit”.  We spoke briefly after this & then he left.  I watched him as he walked into the street.  He didn’t go to any of my neighbors’ homes.  I was left wondering, how did he know about the little girl I dream about & is he an angel?  (Hebrews 13:2 Be not forgetful to entertain strangers: for thereby some have entertained angels unawares).

Promise & Laughter BIRTHED!

When Sarah (barren) told Abraham (father of faith) to lie with her maidservant Hagar (the logical answer) to bring forth a seed, and Abraham complied…this was not an acceptable practice for God’s people.  This was a show of God’s people conforming to & adopting the pagan culture around them (having multiple wives).  Instead of being set-apart, they [temporarily] took on the mindset that defied & defiled order.  This mindset led to a birthing of a “wild man”.  But when Barren comes together with Faith, a closed womb is opened!

Sarah      +   Abraham   =   Isaac

Barren   +  Faith   =   The Promised Seed (name means Laughter)

~VERSUS~

Hagar   +   Abraham  =   Ishmael

Logic    +   Faith   =   Wild Man (Conflict)

PROTEST AGAINST THIS MINDSET!

Most of the ladies in my community, who are around my same age of 35, have teenagers & college students. This means more often than not, women around this age were giving birth in their teen years & early 20s (Avg. age for 1st birth: 22-yrs). As a culture, we’ve become accustomed to females having children early & out of wedlock (Avg. age to marry: 27+). So when the 35-yr old wife desires to have a child, it seems strange?!? People tell you things like, “…you better hurry up” or I hear women my age saying they’re too old to have any more babies. Many have unconsciously accepted it as natural to desire children before desiring a spouse. Getting married, unconsciously, is secondary to having a baby…so it’s tolerated to get pregnant at 20, but barely tolerated at 38 & married? Isn’t this the wrong mindset & undermines the importance of establishing God’s set order? DARE WE TEACH THIS TO OUR CHILDREN?!? We teach exactly that, accidentally, by the words we speak & because of our mindset.

I’m not speaking negatively on those who bear children young or unmarried, as I was born into this world just the same & repeated the pattern by the age of 17. But WHY DOES OUR CULTURE RIDICULE MARRIED WOMEN WHO STILL WANT TO HAVE CHILDREN IN THEIR LATE-30s & Older? Why is this strange…because the common pattern says so? If the average age for 1st births is 5 years earlier than the average age to marry, then the acceptable window to give birth is already closing by the time most walk down the aisle. Again I say DARE WE TEACH THIS TO OUR DAUGHTER WHO MAY FIND HERSELF IN THE SAME PREDICAMENT AT 37?!? Do you tell her longing heart, to give up on the dream of birthing a child because she’s getting too old?  That’s not what God told Sarah or Elizabeth.       ~I protest against this mindset~

I DESPERATELY WANTED SOMEONE TO TALK TO!

There were times when I longed for someone to talk to who could identify with what I was going through.  Being barren sometimes feels shameful, inadequate, empty…feelings that we typically keep to ourselves in an effort to seem fine about it.  But so often, I was not fine about it.  I’ve had peaks & valleys in this journey, but the valleys & the effects of it used to seem more real & to last longer.  After 8 years married and no pregnancy, MY ISSUE WAS OUT IN THE OPEN.  Why didn’t anyone close by & tangible who’s dealt with this before me, especially those who conceived after barrenness, grab me by the hand and say, “I went through this too & here’s what got me through…”

Next thing I know, I found out there was another woman, close by, who had been as quiet about being barren as I was.  Then there was another & another.  Then some surfaced in the family, on both sides, again as quiet as I had been.  As I gained strength and encouragement through reading about the barren women in scripture and how their wombs were opened, I slowly realized that I am that “anyone” who will grab others by the hand and say, “I’m going through this too & here’s what’s getting me through…”  I know there are books out there that are a GREAT HELP, but I still had to read them by myself.  So let’s establish some LIVE VOICES to correspond back & forth as our wombs are opened.

Calling ALL Barren Women!!!

I started this blog as I began to notice that many women that I’ve come in contact with, of child bearing age, have had a hard time conceiving or they are barren.  This baffled me to think that we are possibly dealing with something more symptomatic than we care to admit.  Recently, I came across some very encouraging news, sources, & information…better than what the doctors have offered thus far.  I want to share and discuss this info further, but would like to wait until I have some correspondence & viewing of this information.  Let’s just say that I was faced with the choice to give up hope or to keep believing…
