Your Hope-Filled Perspective with Dr. Michelle Bengtson podcast

Apr 22, 2021

Episode Summary: In this episode, we talk about hope for healing after infertility and adoption. My guest, Samantha Morgan, is going to share her testimony after enduring infertility, an adoption that fell through, foster parenting, and the beautiful ways God used her disappointments for good, weaving a beautiful tapestry that she never could have imagined.

Quotables from the episode:

  • Adoption is rooted in pain from both sides.
  • Giving my infertility to God allowed me to get out of His way so He could do what only He could do.
  • Infertility brings with it all the emotions of grief.
  • Infertility is not your fault, and it’s not a punishment for something you did or didn’t do.
  • I had to ask myself, do I want to be pregnant, or do I really want to be a mom?

Scripture References:

  • Romans 8: 26-27 NIV “In the same way, the Spirit helps us in our weakness. We do not know what we ought to pray for, but the Spirit himself intercedes for us through wordless groans. And he who searches our hearts knows the mind of the Spirit, because the Spirit intercedes for God’s people in accordance with the will of God.”
  • Hebrew 11:1 NIV “Now faith is confidence in what we hope for, and assurance about what we do not see.”
  • 2 Corinthians 1:3-4 NIV “Praise be to the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of compassion and the God of all comfort, who comforts us in all our troubles, so that we can comfort those in any trouble with the comfort we ourselves receive from God.”
