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?
- 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.”
