What faith can do

In the car, on my way home from work today, I was contemplating why it is that I, of all people, got stuck with IF. I was passing by a bus stop and watching a mom struggle to cross the street with her toddler and infant in a shopping cart. All I could think was "Why the hell does she get to have babies and not me? I'm sure I would be a better mother than her!" That's when I heard myself. Seriously?!? Was I really judging someone I knew nothing about? Is that what IF has done to me? So, I turned on the local christian radio station in hopes of hearing something a little more encouraging than the pop music I was listening to. Then, I said a prayer. Just a short prayer asking God to help me change my attitude. That was when this song came on the radio..

"What Faith Can Do" by Kutless

Everybody falls sometimes
Gotta find the strength to rise
From the ashes and make a new beginning
Anyone can feel the ache
You think it’s more than you can take
But you are stronger, stronger than you know
Don’t you give up now
The sun will soon be shining
You gotta face the clouds
To find the silver lining

I’ve seen dreams that move the mountains
Hope that doesn’t ever end
Even when the sky is falling
And I’ve seen miracles just happen
Silent prayers get answered
Broken hearts become brand new
That’s what faith can do

It doesn’t matter what you’ve heard
Impossible is not a word
It’s just a reason for someone not to try
Everybody’s scared to death
When they decide to take that step
Out on the water
It’ll be alright
Life is so much more
Than what your eyes are seeing
You will find your way
If you keep believing

I’ve seen dreams that move the mountains
Hope that doesn’t ever end
Even when the sky is falling
And I’ve seen miracles just happen
Silent prayers get answered
Broken hearts become brand new
That’s what faith can do

Overcome the odds
You don't have a chance
(That’s what faith can do)
When the world says you can’t
It’ll tell you that you can!

I’ve seen dreams that move the mountains
Hope that doesn’t ever end
Even when the sky is falling
And I’ve seen miracles just happen
Silent prayers get answered
Broken hearts become brand new
That’s what faith can do
That's what faith can do!
Even if you fall sometimes
You will have the strength to rise


It was just what I needed to hear.

Wow. That's powerful.

I agree with you totally though about seeing something and then jumping to conclusions (for me, usually based on jealousy and bitterness). I have to check myself and remind myself that I'm not the only one with problems.

Hey Coco,

I know exactly what you are going through. But miracles DO happen and you will be a mommy in time. I and my babies are living proof of that!

It;s totally normal to think "why me?". BUT the strength you have and that God gives you will see you though it all! Hang in there chica, it will happen!

That's really pretty. I find myself doing that too, then I feel terrible for thinking it. I have to remind myself that another woman's fertility has no effect on my own. (much easier said than done!)
