When God says no...
What about when the Lord says to you, ‘dear one that path, desire, open door, opportunity, request is not my will’…and He does to all of us at one time or another-what then? Sometimes that can be a severe disappointment. A life long dream shattered. He says He loves us and we can ask anything according to His will and He will answer us, right?
I know I grew up just expecting the day to come when I too would have my little bundle of blessing in my arms. I put in my time helping others do this very normal adult activity. I was an advance practice labor and delivery nurse and I had not one incident in all my years of practice that did not lead to a safe birth. God blessed that because I know, a lot can go wrong. That may have happened to you. Something went wrong.
Psalm 113:9 says, “He makes the barren woman to keep house, and to be a joyful mother of children. Praise the Lord!”
I know He did for me. After the infertility, with no help even with the most sophisticated treatments, and then a devastating divorce from that man for that reason, I had to accept “not my plan” from the Lord and expect He would make me a joyful mother some other way. He make it clear, the answer was “no” to having them as I had planned.
