Hope for Christmas

As we come into this Christmas season,  I know it can be hard for those of us in the fertility struggle. But have faith!
Infertility, and a fertility miracle are actually a part of the Christmas story. I plan a whole post (or possibly series if posts) about infertility in the Bible, but today, I will quickly talk about Elizabeth.
Elizabeth was Mary’s cousin. The Bible says:

Even Elizabeth your relative is going to have a child in her old age, and she who was said to be unable to conceive is in her sixth month.
Luke 1:36  (NIV)

image

Elizabeth, who was apparently past her prime pregnancy age (now how old “old” is, I dont know), and everyone had written off in terms of becoming a mother,  became pregnant. She delivered a son named John. John the Baptist. She is a part of the Christmas story and the promise of Christ.

We must remember that when the world says “No”, God (and science) says “Yes”. Elizabeth’s baby grew up to be a prophet and leader. All things are possible.

There is hope this Christmas. There is hope for the new year.
