Every Tear, Every Heartache

I was inspired to begin writing again by a post I read on someone elses blog (yes I am that person who read blogs even when I didn't have one).  Her post included this quote:
God is not only a Redeemer of our sin, but He is a Redeemer of our circumstances as well.  He will not waste a single problem, a single heartache, a single tear.  Our God is a Redeemer God, and He stands minute by minute before us, inviting us to let Him have the sorrow, to let Him have the pain, to let Him have the disappointment.  To trust Him to make something useful, something creative of every tragedy that darkens our lives.
I am grateful for all of the tears I have cried and for a God who promises to wipe each and every tear from my eyes (Revelations 21:4).  Every circumstance, every event, every place has a meaning.  He will use everything!  Every tear I have shed, every heartache, every hurt, He will use.  Even though I am disheartened by our struggle to have a child (more on our journey so far in another post), I know that God will use my experience to encourage and motivate others. 

But unless I am being open and honest about our journey, God can't use me.  So this is me, opening my heart to all you people of the interweb hoping that just one person finds hope in our journey.
