[Infertility Encouragement by Sarah's Laughter - WWJB: Where Would Jesus Be?
What if Jesus walked the planet today as He did in Biblical times? What would He look like? What would He say to people? Where would he be? With buddies on camping trips? Volunteering at homeless shelters? Amazing His listeners at coffee shops?
I think we’d find Him in fertility clinic waiting rooms.
When Jesus clothed Himself in humanity, He was no stranger to hurting people. He was repeatedly drawn to the sick, the hurting, the ostracized. Whether healing a body wracked by pain, cooling a fevered brow, or calming fear in a troubled heart, He brought peace where none existed before. (Now can you see why He might have chosen a fertility clinic waiting room?) Perhaps you have a doctor’s appointment today and are afraid. You don’t know what the doctor will tell you. You don’t know what the blood results will be. The future is a scary place when you look at it through fertility-tinted lenses. As you wait in the waiting room for your name to be called, listen as Jesus stands beside you whispering to your heart: “My peace I give to you; not as the world gives do I give to you. Do not let your heart be troubled, nor let it be fearful.” Maybe there’s no doctor’s appointment today, but baby hunger has still wounded your heart, and you need the presence of the Savior in other places. Perhaps you need him at the office, the grocery store, or at the dinner table. If you’re hurting, He’s there. Hear Jesus, the friend who really is closer to you than a brother, as He reminds you, I am with you always. With you at work. With you at home. With you when you find out someone else is pregnant. With you when you find out you’re not. I am with you always. Jesus shows up wherever there are hurting people. He won’t leave you alone in your tears. He won’t leave you alone in your frustration. He won’t leave you.
So where would Jesus show up if He took on human form today? Right where you are.
And probably at an infertility clinic or two.] #Waiting #GodsPerfectTime #JMandIvysFaithGoals #audaciousFaith #AudienceOfOne #FaithGoals #biblefor21 #TeamCamposDevotions #FaithGoals #Faith
