Can God Bless a Barren Woman? Yes He Can!

Can God Bless a Barren Woman? Yes He Can! I have always seen the torment that comes from the enemy to many great women who have not been able to bear children for one reason or another. Whether that was a product of not having found a man suitable, or whether that is a product for some health reason that a particular lady could not bear kids. You are not a lesser individual for not having kids. One of the simplest answers that the world can give you is for you to adopt. That is so easy for others to say. Does that replace the inner yearning of one that has longed for children? I don’t think that it does. I am not against adoption at all, but the purpose of this note is to minister to those of you that have longed for kids and haven’t been able to bear them for one reason or another. In the days of the Bible, barrenness was essentially looked on as a curse, but I am coming with Holy Boldness to let you know that your worth isn’t determined by your ability to produce offspring. God loves and cares for you! It is never his desire for you to suffer heartaches over your yearning for kids.

I truly believe that God is the answer to that void in your life. Turn this burden over to the Lord, and I am sure that he will fix it. Many of you may have miscarried, or lost a child in childbirth, I submit to you that for every stripe that our Savior endured there is enough healing virtue to heal you of your heartache! You are not cursed! You are not less of a Woman! I believe with all that is in me that God Can Bless What Others Call a Barren Woman! If that is you, I am praying that God would send you a sheer tsunami of his virtue your way! I see the God and the Good in You! Stay Blessed My Sister! I know that Mother’s Day Weekend Can Be Tough! God loves you! I send out my highest regards to you, and I yet see the day when you will shine as the brightest star in the universe! God can make you fruitful in so many other ways!

Additional Note For Mother’s Day Weekend-In a week like this, it can be especially troubling for those of you that have longed for kids. I don’t have every answer, but I do know The Answer who can solve your every problem. I am busy praying for you! I don’t take this lightly; I have often heard the heartache of many over not being able to have children. I am praying for any and all that find that as the case! God will put his arms around you and love you as no other can! I am praying that God would send his fruitfulness in whatever manner he may your way! You are not cursed! You are blessed! That means you are empowered to prosper! God has his eyes on you!

Your Brother In Christ,
Elder Stephen F. Smith

  1. Often times everyone prays for the barren woman. Based on the scriptures (Rachel, Hannah, etc). That is good. We ought to pray the scriptures and remind God what He has done for other women. However, I have yet to hear anyone pray for the man. Infertility is not just a problem for women. It is a male problem as well. Low count, low mobility, morphology etc. Please would someone start looking at the facts and realize that this is not just a woman’s issue. It is a mans issue.

  2. As a barren woman, I find it particularly upsetting that all the stories in the Bible about barren women have “happy endings” – they all end up with babies! What about those of us who don’t have our “happy endings”. What is God’s purpose for me? Why did he put a desire in me to have a child if it was never going to be fulfilled?

  3. I truly agree with the submission that childlessness must include the man as well, unless medical reports have indicated that the man has no problem. But it must not be assumed that in all cases of childlessness the problem is with the woman. Prayers for childless couples and books on the subject should not be biased against women.

    And childless men need the same kind of support that the women receive. While they may appear strong in public, they actually live in tears in their private moments.
