I Need A Child!

I Need A Child!

Today, we shall be rounding off our discussion on Motherhood and we would be happy to help you make the necessary improvement and transition in order to be the best Mother you can be. The ability to shape the life of another individual is an awesome responsibility. Motherhood is about impact and this transcends having biological children of your own. Hence, if you are still waiting, don’t exempt yourself from the opportunity of impacting the children God has placed in your life. At the end of the day, the input we make in the lives of our children is more important than responding to the title, ‘mum’. Mum is a title and there are many title holders who don’t deliver on the role.

“Sing, O barren, you that did not bear; break forth into singing, and cry aloud, you that did not travail with child: for more are the children of the desolate than the children of the married wife, says the LORD” Isaiah 54:1. I like this scripture because it reminds every woman still waiting to have a baby of her own to carry on with her life; keep being a blessing, celebrate, don’t limit or define yourself by the absence of your own biological children. Many have wasted years languishing in sorrow and self rejection, putting their lives on hold because of this.

Are you putting on hold services you should be offering to your community because you are waiting to get legitimacy by being a mother? Are you allowing external pressures from insensitive people ruin your joy?

THINK & ACT: Pour out value to the children in your life, don’t allow anything hold you back. Your season is here!

    God bless you, Chidi & Victor. You have been an encouragement to many. Having waited just a year before conceiving, I can say that it is a long path to travel to get to this place of rest. The truth is a lot of women are hiding today, just because of the unnecessary stigma tied to being childless (even for a while), especially in Africa. I wish I could just shout it to them all, celebrate, live your life, your season is here! Weep no more!

    @Zinny – I like to write anonymous on social media so it is difficult to trace me. One of the reasons for this is so I can express myself, especially on sensitive issues like this one.
    Mothers in waiting need to toughen up and stop cracking under the insensitive words of mean people who do not even care. Cracking up means you get to attract unwanted health conditions like blood pressure, ulcers from refusing food because you are sad and many more. You crack up to the point that you take in and then have a miscarriage because you allowed your body break down. Children will come please. Don’t put your life on hold at all, live your dreams. Most importantly, stop wearing yourselves out as a couple. Your season is here!
