SHALOM everyone…… I am a 39 year old super excited mum from Zimbabwe. I got married on the 17th of May 2003. Me and my husband suffered a great deal due to barrenness and could not conceive for 9 years. The doctors had diagonised me with endometrious and i could not menstruate monthly so i had irregular menses. I was advised to lose weight etc so as to conceive. At the time was weighing about 82kg. i could not understand because i had failed to conceive from the time that had gotten married when i was weighing only 65kg. So we prayed and waited upon God and believed all this time.
One day i got a revelation of faith. What is FAITH. It is the evidence of things not seen but desired. At once i believed my children are already there. God took me to Mark 11 v 22-24…If you believe and not doubt in your heart you will have what so ever you will SAY (paraphrased). My Eyes were opened more and more. I got revelation that ii have to change my SAYING. Never ever did i relate my ordeal of endometriusis or barrenness. I never repeated the doctor’s words ever. I started speaking what the Bible said about my situation.
I got Ps 113 v 9-10 that says He makes the barren woman to keep house and be a joyful mother of children. i declared this scripture all the time. I started telling people to stop worrying or even praying for me as i already have my children per the scripture especially leaders and my pastor’s wives. In 2012 as sure as God’s word is i began to menstruate normally and then i conceived. I WAS OVER EXCITED. Unfortunately on the 4th of november after about 31/2 months i miscarried. I was devastated but as i cred told God these same hands that wipe my tears now will definately be holding my baby this time next year.
In January 2013 i conceived and exactly after 38weeks on the 17th of October 2013 i gave birth to my bouncIng baby boy EMMANUEL MEHLULI MOYO. And all my tears were wiped away at once. The void in my heart was filled at once. GOD IS TRUE, FAITHFUL AND REAL. I met Nerida Walker through my moments of googling and endless searches for a baby and i was inspired a lot. I love this site.
NERIDA AND YOUR HUSBAND PLEASE KEEP UP THE GOOD WORK……
Are my struggles with infertility and miscarriage a curse from God?
The short and simple answer is emphatically “No!”
Infertility and miscarriage are NOT a curse from God!
We must always remember that from the beginning of time , God’s plan for ALL of His creation was fruitfulness!
God created and commanded mankind to be fruitful.
As we can see in Genesis 1:26-28 God said, “Let Us make man in Our image, according to Our likeness; let them have dominion over the fish of the sea, over the birds of the air, and over the cattle, over all the earth and over every creeping thing that creeps on the earth.” 27 So God created man in His own image; in the image of God He created him; male and female He created them. 28 Then God blessed them, and God said to them, “Be fruitful and multiply; fill the earth and subdue it; have dominion over the fish of the sea, over the birds of the air, and over every living thing that moves on the earth.”
There are some verses in the Old Testament that on the surface look like barrenness came from the hand of God BUT when you understand how the Old Testament was written and what was happening at the time then these verses can be explained and rightly divided. However, its not necessary to cover this here because the reality is we are under a better Covenant based upon better promises which CANNOT be broken. Our New Covenant was made between God and His son, Jesus and it has ALREADY been ESTABLISHED for us! God cannot block, alter, withdraw or delay what He has already freely provided!
This is the GOOD NEWS of the New Covenant! So this means what Jesus purchased for us on the Cross is already freely available to all who believe in Him.
So why do we still suffer?
The simple truth is that infertility and miscarriage and whatever causes these are different forms of sickness, disease or complications that occur in the mother, father or unborn baby. These are not from God! Romans 5:12 tells us that death entered through sin. The answer is clear – all forms of death came in at the Fall. One of the reasons why we may suffer today is because we live in a fallen world and we live with fallen men who don’t listen to God or respond in love etc. There is also an adversary. BUT once again stick to your New Covenant because Jesus has ALREADY paid the price for sin and its consequences on the Cross.
Psalm 103:1-5 Bless the Lord, O my soul; And all that is within me, bless His holy name! 2 Bless the Lord, O my soul, And forget not all His benefits: 3 Who forgives all your iniquities, Who heals all your diseases, 4 Who redeems your life from destruction, Who crowns you with lovingkindness and tender mercies, 5 Who satisfies your mouth with good things, So that your youth is renewed like the eagle’s.
The PROVISION for healing of ALL FORMS of sickness and disease has already been made available because God and Jesus have already finished the work for us. They are both seated and resting from their redemptive work. NOW it is time for us to renew our minds with who we are IN HIM and what we have already inherited so we can seek God on revelation knowledge on how to PARTAKE to see this outworking in our lives.
Fix your eyes on Jesus!
Whenever you read the Bible and want to apply it to your circumstances today ALWAYS filter what you read through your New Covenant and the finished work of Jesus. That is our position today and what we have available to us. I personally believe that what we have in Him is enough for us to experience a breakthrough in any area of our lives.
Jesus is God’s answer to the Fall and to how to overcome what we now experience while living in a fallen world!
Another reason why we suffer in this and other areas of life is because we lack knowledge and understanding. If we don’t know God has already provided the answer for us then we won’t know how to partake in it with boldness. Unfortunately what is commonly taught is from peoples’ personal experiences. We have 101 traditions and doctrines of men and reasons formed from our own understanding on how God works or doesn’t work today. Most of which undermine Jesus and His finished work in our lives. So if you want the truth to be established in your heart and minds then stick to Jesus and continue to meditate only upon what you have in your New Covenant with Him!

I was diagnosed with endometrial ovarian cysts in both ovaries. It caused me pain and doctors said I would have to have surgery to remove them if I wanted to have babies. I was in a state of sadness and confusion when I stumbled upon Nerida’s ministry. Overtime I didn’t have terrible pain anymore but I still wasn’t pregnant despite charting and all. To make the story short, I saw 3 different doctors in three different countries and it was the same diagnosis. The third doctor said “You can’t pray it away. You have to have surgery to have babies”. I never saw that Dr again. 2 months after he said that, I conceived! Even though I charted that cycle, I never identified an ovulation date. It was as if I didn’t have one. I had come to a place where I truly believe God wasn’t withholding from me. So my prayer became “Lord I receive my babies with thanksgiving”. Also I had an amazing pregnancy. No morning sickness, I had energy and amazing appetite. God is good.
Baby Ewaoluwa (God’s beauty) arrived 2weeks ago, a day after my birthday! She sleeps fine and eats like a champ. Despite the doctor’s report, I am a mom! Whether or not youve had your baby, God has made you and I joyful mothers of children. I pray we receive all that God has freely given us in Jesus name!
I recently had the honour to share a guest post to encourage couples struggling with infertility on Evangeline Colbert’s Blog “Hope-Filled Focus”.
