Good afternoon mamas. It's been almost eight years that I've been TTC and I'm already so tired. I don't know what to do anymore as it all seems hopeless. I'm depressed and I cry almost everyday now. I don't know what to do

Ron Kenoly sang a song with the lyrics_

Lord I love
To worship You

O Lord I love
To worship You

You have given me so much
To be thankful for

And I love You is not enough
To express my love

Everything I have inside of me
Lord I give to You

There is nothing I can do
There is nothing I can do
There is nothing I can do
But worship You

This song came to my mind when I saw your post and I just thought to share.

Health / Re: The Prize Of “Delivering Like The Hebrew Women”- Nigerian Health Blog by Alwaystrue(f): 2:29pm On Jul 28, 2019
These sad stories was shared by doctors whose pregnant patients rejected C-section because they wanted to “deliver like the Hebrew women”.

Nonso the Aproko Doctor™@aproko_doctor
I know a woman who died because her womb tore and the baby entered her abdomen, her pelvis was too small to allow the baby pass. She died before they made it to the hospital. They told her that CS is not her portion, that the doctors are using CS to make money from people.


This type of case.. every medical doctor in Nigeria has at least one experience. Either as a student or as an intern. My first was as a 500l student. Previous scar, rejected cs. She was brought in dead, baby dead.

Elder Richy (Dr)@Richtyns
I booked a patient for elective C/S on account of Fetal weight of 5.4kg. Her pastor and relative kicked against it and she went to a TBA. Had a ruptured uterus, baby went into the abodomen, crushed vital organs By the time she was rushed back, it was too late lost mother & child.

Adeniran olayemi@ProfdotOlayemi
I scheduled a patient for CS due to previous CS and big baby. She didn’t show up. Was rushed to the hospital 2 days after. They tried vaginal birth with misoprostol. Uterus gave way. She passed on with the baby. One of my horrible days ever.

Mr. Solution@SOLUBABA8
People will keep dying out of ignorance. I recently heard one pastor telling her congregation that CS is not for them, reason being that the Bible has promised that they will deliver like the Hebrew women. Even as a Microbiologist, I understand that Bible verse more than d pastor

Highly Classified@ispeakmymind234
It’s sad to see people risk their lives like that… A close friend recently lost a baby because they(my guy and his wife) were trying to show that she could have a Veejay delivery… There’s no award for that shit people!

CS is not your portion, they say! You’ll deliver like the Hebrew women, they say, forgetting that the phrase “delivered like the Hebrew women” was a LIE told to Pharaoh by the Egyptian midwives, as their consciences couldn’t deal with killing babies. Dem go dey alright Las Las!
Now, whatever any PASTOR or seemingly religious person quotes from the Bible, go and read that verse of the Bible YOURSELF. Read the verse, 4 verses before it, 4 verses after it, Infact, the WHOLE CHAPTER, if that helps you to understand better.

Ife @Fe_ducklin
I knew a Jehovah’s witness who lost so much blood during child birth and the doctors begged her family to allow them give her blood but they refused because it’s against their doctrine. She died some hours later.

I Know a lady who died out of ignorance because her pastor told her she’d give birth through VB, she died while the local midwives she registered with we’re forcing the baby to come through labour.

Ogunjimi Babajide Adeniji@fjiwad
Just the exact case of my aunty in 1995, her pastor prophesied against the MD’s advice of CS. It was a horrible end. We lost my aunty & the baby. Faith is real & i won’t say don’t believe your pastor’s prophesy but let’s balance it with medical recommendations. It’s just one life.

Virtuous Felix@FelixVirtuous
We learnt our lesson from my mom’s experience. Dad, a pastor totally kicked against CS, baby weighed 5.5, mom had to do it the normal way. Story short, mom had dislocation that she couldn’t walk for three month, baby had dislocation too around her shoulder.Glad they are fine now.

My uncle lost a baby last month because his wife insisted that she would have a vaginal delivery. The baby died and was brought out of her womb through CS. That was my Uncle’s first child, although the lady has a child before and that child was through CS. They’re now separated.


There are dangers in every one-sided story.
Let’s be careful about giving CS a good name and shunning Vaginal birth, like it is a plague; when this is actually the way to go! Yes, I said so.
CS is an option or alternative.

If CS is needed to preserve the life of mother and the child, then by all means.

People have died while undergoing this same CS and some have developed terrible complications. Some have had vaginal deliveries as well and also experienced complications or even died, as well. This, therefore does not make CS better than a Vaginal birth.

Many doctors and hospitals would prefer CS as it may be easier, less stressful and quick, provide more money and may help preserve the reputation of the hospital since they believe they have more control over the outcome; Also considering any medical diagnosis the doctors may give to pregnant women.

Same way the patients may have true belief and faith in having a normal delivery or it may be scarcity of funds or it the women may not want the after pains associated with operations. Finally, some may actually feel they are strong enough to have their babies vaginally.
Everyone has a reason and choice in this matter though no one wants a dead baby or to themselves die in the process.

It will be much easier to prepare for a vaginal birth first by training the body, like the supposed Hebrew Women who were very hardy, even if they end up undergoing a CS,
Than to prepare for elective CS and something unfortunate happens which makes vaginal delivery the only way.
What then happens in the latter?

In view of this, every person should pray regarding the birthing process of their child(ren) as early as possible, as birthing a child goes beyond having the best doctors and equipment...it is a lot more than that! It is a lot more spiritual and also requires preparation physically, mentally and financially.

Religion / Re: Daddy Freeze: If An Engaged Couple Have Sex, It Is Not FORNICATION! by Alwaystrue(f): 8:41pm On Jun 25, 2018
From; Amagitesblog.com

Controversial OAP, Daddy Freeze has said that an engaged couple having sex is not fornication because the fornication is the Greek word ‘pornea’ which meant prostitution or LovePeddler mongering.

Read his post which he attached biblical backings to...



Please abstain from sex outside marriage. The bible is clear on this.

Joseph and Mary were betrothed or espoused to each other (which is also known as engaged) yet they never engaged in sexual intercourse.

In the old testament, a man could claim his wife was not a virgin after sleeping with her and she had to present tokens of her virginity to absolve herself. Deuteronomy 22:13-19

Paul was extremely clear on this as well in 1 Corinthians 7:36.

A wedding in sealed when a woman is given to the husband in marriage.
God gave Eve to Adam. Jacob was given Rachel by her father.
It is tantamount to robbery to just go and sleep with another man or woman's daughter without handing her over formally in marriage irrespective of the ceremony involved. I am sure many parents will not take it including you if you have daughters.

Religion / Re: Is The Gospel In The Old Testament? by Alwaystrue(f): 2:48am On Jan 19, 2018
So Jesus said to them, "That is why every scribe who has become a disciple of the kingdom of heaven is like a home owner. He brings new and old things out of his treasure chest." - Matthew 13:52

"for we know in part and prophesy in part"...
am afraid this seems not to be true with modern Christian professors who seem to think they know all and try to treat the old testament like it's a THORN IN THEIR FLESH....

now my questions are .... "

1,is the gospel in the old testament?
2, were people saved in the old testament Even with an everlasting SALVATION?
3, were they saved on basics of the law?

For unto us was the gospel preached, as well as unto them: but the word preached did not profit them, not being mixed with faith in them that heard it - Hebrews 4:2

I will therefore put you in remembrance, though ye once knew this, how that the Lord, having saved the people out of the land of Egypt, afterward destroyed them that believed not - Jude 1:5

3 For what the law could not do, in that it was weak through the flesh, God sending his own Son in the likeness of sinful flesh, and for sin, condemned sin in the flesh:
4 That the righteousness of the law might be fulfilled in us, who walk not after the flesh, but after the Spirit. Romans 8:3-4

Religion / Re: If 'Jesus' Woke Up On The 3rd Day, How Was It A Sacrifice? by Alwaystrue(f): 7:05pm On Apr 18, 2017
Millions of people have experienced far worse than being "scorned, ridiculed, beaten, bruised" etc. Plus you don't worship him based on the torture he supposedly endured, but because he "sacrificed his life".
Thanks, I worship Him because I believe in Him and this was made possible because He sacrificed His life for me. He was bruised for my iniquity, chastised for my peace and scourged for my healing...He did this all for ME and for YOU! smiley He died so you may live!
Whether you believe or accept it yet. wink

Trouble is, he DID NOT sacrifice his life. To sacrifice something means to give it up permanently, not give it up for a couple of days, and then snatch it back, and claim you'd sacrificed it.
In effect, you christians are LYING when you claim Jesus "gave his life" for "our sins". Just accept that and move on.

Oh yes He did sacrifice His life!
He DIED!!!! Your overnight sleep is not dying.
Do not belittle Jesus Christ's sacrifice for you! I say it again.
Religion / Re: If 'Jesus' Woke Up On The 3rd Day, How Was It A Sacrifice? by Alwaystrue(f): 6:52am On Apr 18, 2017
Please, how does a three day nap equate to a sacrifice? Is it the fact that he was unconscious for three days? Is that the sacrifice? I can equally say I am sacrificing for the world when I go to bed for the night, can't I? At least 1/3 of what Jesus sacrificed, every night.

My Lord Jesus was beaten, bruised, ridiculed, scorned, abused, had a cross made of thorns pressed unto his head, endured the pain of being nailed to a cross hand and foot and all this done to the God by His own creation He was to save and then died and you have the audacity to compare this to going to bed at night?

Can you endure even a fraction of all this done to you by someone you didn't create with the promise of being raised the next minute.

Please ask for forgiveness and never ever belittle even one aspect of the suffering of Christ. Ever!

Happy Easter All,
Just as God raised Christ Jesus from the dead, he will give life to your mortal bodies by this same Spirit living within you. Amen.

Has your case been buried, your hopes interred? Has that medical report sealed the tomb of that promise of God concerning motherhood or fatherhood?
Let me tell you that the tomb is empty, your organs have risen, your case has become a testimony, that promise of God is fulfilled in your life because Jesus is Alive!!!!!
If Jesus could rise again then nothing is impossible with God.

Don't doubt, pick yourself up from the depths of despair and forge ahead for you have the victory!


Religion / Re: Shall We Continue In Sin That Grace May Abound? - Olamide Obire by Alwaystrue(f): 8:00pm On Mar 19, 2017
In addition to what I said in the morning, this is what grace is all about:

Titus 2:11-15 NLT
11 For the grace of God has been revealed, bringing salvation to all people.
12 And we are instructed to turn from godless living and sinful pleasures. We should live in this evil world with wisdom, righteousness, and devotion to God,
13 while we look forward with hope to that wonderful day when the glory of our great God and Savior, Jesus Christ, will be revealed.
14 He gave his life to free us from every kind of sin, to cleanse us, and to make us his very own people, totally committed to doing good deeds.
15 You must teach these things and encourage the believers to do them. You have the authority to correct them when necessary, so don’t let anyone disregard what you say.

The bible says we are to come to the throne of grace to obtain mercy and also to receive grace to help us...grace helps us to live according to the law of the Spirit...which fulfils the law of God.

Thanks for the right up...I have quite a number of posts regarding this subject from years past.
My little contribution is this:

No one could ever tell Jesus that 'Adultery is a sin' or 'Murder is a sin' or 'He should not covet' because Jesus had mortified his mortal members (lust, covetuosness or hate)...by being dead to sin, He could not even live it.

Jesus came to fulfill the law by showing what exactly we need to do (Love God and our neighbours on which the whole law and the prophets are hinged on)...once we obey the law of the Spirit by the grace of God we have obeyed the Law.
A man who obeys the law of the Spirit has already obeyed the Letter in principle!

Romans 3:31
Do we then cancel the law through faith? Absolutely not! On the contrary, we uphold the Law

Four Days Late Yet On Time!

Verse 1: The news came to Jesus, please come fast.
Lazarus is sick and without Your help he will not last.
Mary and Martha, watched their brother die
They waited for Jesus- He did not come.
And they wondered why.
The death watch was over; buried four days.
Somebody said He'll soon be here
The Lord's on His way.
Martha ran to Him, and then she cried
Lord if You had been here- You could have healed him. He'd still be alive.

But You're four days late; and all hope is gone.
Lord we don't understand why You've waited so long."
But His way is God's way.
Not yours or mine
And isn't it great, when He's four days late- He's still on time!

Verse 2: Jesus said, "Martha, show Me the grave."
But she said, "Lord You don't understand- he's been there four days!""
The grave stone was rolled back.
Then Jesus cried, "Lazarus! Come forth!"
Then somebody said, "He's ALIVE! He's ALIVE!"

You may be fighting a battle of fear
You've cried to the Lord "I need You now!" But He has not appeared.
Friend don't be discouraged
He's still the same.
He'll soon be here, and He'll roll back the stone, and He'll call out your name!

When He's four days late and all hope is gone
Lord we don't understand why You've waited so long.
But His way is God's way, not yours or mine
And isn't it great when He's four days late- He's still on time!
Oh, my God is great! When He's four days late- He's still on time!!!

This goes to all mamas and papas who think their cases are rotten and decomposing, who think it is all over...I want you to know that even though you feel God is late, He is always on time.
Keep Strong.

I was painting in the garage, and she was drawing a rainbow on the cement floor with chalk when she said, “I’m glad God gave me you to me as my Mommy.”

I wasn’t ready for it. “What?” I asked, making sure I heard her right. She tried to say it again, but her words came out a little more awkward this time, and she said something like, “I’m happy your’e my mommy from God.”

Tears filled my eyes.

Then she prayed, “God, thank you for giving my mommy to me. And thank you (I couldn’t understand this part.) And thank you, she makes me breakfast. And thank you we’re going to make pumpkin spagotti (biscotti). I hope it tastes good. Do you think it will taste good, God?”

Then she opened her eyes, and went back to drawing her chalk mural–while my eyes blurred with tears, and a huge lump came to my throat. Where did that come from?

She’s three…and I didn’t know her little heart could hold such gratitude. Or that it would just burst out of her, during this subtle moment in the garage. Or that she would thank God, outloud, for me, right then.

Usually, she doesn’t even want to pray out loud–even with me encouraging her. But today she felt something inside her.

Something beautiful.

Her little heart can hold more love than I often know.

Her little mind…is not so little as I think it is. She thinks far beyond what I would expect.

“Thank you, Selah,” I said, smiling. “I’m so glad God gave me you as my daughter.”

I would have hugged her right then, if my hands didn’t have white paint on them, and if there wasn’t so much junk between us on the floor. The drawers I was painting, and an old wooden chair.

“Did you have to wait a long time for me Mom?” she asked. (I have told her the story many times, but she wanted to hear it again.)

I stepped across the junk on the floor and came a little closer to her. “Yes,” I said. “I asked God for a baby over and over again. But He didn’t give me one for a long time.”

“And when me and Daddy found out you were in my tummy, we were so happy!” I told her.

“Do you know why God took so long to give you a baby?” she said.

“No, honey,” I said. “I don’t know.”

“I know why,” she said.

“Why?” I asked.

“Because…He was making me,” she said.

He was making me.

I looked into her deep blue eyes, that seemed to know something from another world, and her blonde tossled hair russled in the breeze. And in that moment, she seemed a thousand years old.

He was making me.

And that answer was enough. And my heart resounded with the truth of it, “Of course He was. Of course, that’s exactly what He was doing, Dear One.”

Because now that I know her, and know how special she is–it only makes sense, that it took so long. I don’t know what God was doing with her up there. There is just something about her, that seems as if she spent a long time on God’s chest before coming to mine. Almost as if heaven didn’t want to give her up.


And I say this with tears, to you, all that have been called barren…

Who are waiting for your baby prayers to be answered.

Who are praying every day for God to give you a baby. To give you life.

I don’t know why it’s taking so long.

But either way…if you are waiting right now, and you don’t know why it’s taking so long.

Maybe it’s because God, the Maker and Giver of Life and every living thing…is still in the process of making your baby.

We can’t even begin to comprehend what is happening in the heavenlies, in the unseen, and what, or who He is forming.

His ways are not like ours. His timing is not like ours.

And perhaps if He’s moving so slowly, and He’s taking so long… It’s because He’s forming something so breathtaking and beautiful…it cannot be rushed.

He is in the process of forming a masterpiece.

And maybe one day, a little masterpiece will stand before you and say, “I know why God took so long to give you a baby.”

And you will say, “Why?”

And they will say,


He was making me.”

" Today I set my foot to the bank by the ATM to get some cash because I dearly needed the money.

As I started to transact, the ATM showed me an inscription which said
; Please insert your card.

Likewise I did insert the card

And then another message came-please enter your pin code

Another message came ...select the amount,
I did that too
After I had done all this...the ATM showed me a message in BOLD letters

If I give up now and walk away..Lord have Mercy...
The next person will get all that I had requested
Not because your messages aren't heard, not because your prayers are irrelevant, not because your fasting is meaningless..but because
Wait and murmur not. Do not think you were born to suffer Your prayers are being processed Wait upon the Lord.

I Know it's not easy but I encourage you ..WAIT!!

Jeremiah 29:4-11
4 This is the Message from God-of-the-Angel-Armies, Israel’s God, to all the exiles I’ve taken from Jerusalem to Babylon:

5 “Build houses and make yourselves at home.

“Put in gardens and eat what grows in that country.

6 “Marry and have children. Encourage your children to marry and have children so that you’ll thrive in that country and not waste away.

7 “Make yourselves at home there and work for the country’s welfare.

“Pray for Babylon’s well-being. If things go well for Babylon, things will go well for you.”

8-9 Yes. Believe it or not, this is the Message from God-of-the-Angel-Armies, Israel’s God: “Don’t let all those so-called preachers and know-it-alls who are all over the place there take you in with their lies. Don’t pay any attention to the fantasies they keep coming up with to please you. They’re a bunch of liars preaching lies—and claiming I sent them! I never sent them, believe me.” God’s Decree!

10-11 This is God’s Word on the subject: “As soon as Babylon’s seventy years are up and not a day before, I’ll show up and take care of you as I promised and bring you back home. I know what I’m doing. I have it all planned out—plans to take care of you, not abandon you, plans to give you the future you hope for.

Thanks to all keeping this thread of encouragement and prayer alive.

Not one word will fail from God's promises for us. He has said that irrespective of this seeming delay, remain fruitful and LIVE!

At the set time, His Word will be perfected in your life. As is on @Dreamsinbc's food blog, EAT, LIVE, REPEAT!
You will forget this time of waiting soon!

Today's date is unique and symbolic - 16/6/16.

It is interesting to know that the Book of Nehemiah is the 16th book of the bible. It's chapter 6 verse 16 even gets more interesting...

Nehemiah 6:16
Then our enemies and the surrounding nations heard about it, they were frightened and humiliated. They realized this work had been done with the help of our God

It then means by this scriptural reference God is up to something in your life today.

May the Lord God Jehovah Almighty wipe away your tears and turn your mourning into dancing. May people and nations gather and say 'This can only be God' by the time they hear your testimony in Jesus name. Amen.

Don't think. Know the scriptures.
You just answered yourself. What does it mean to "submit oneself unto God"? Can you submit yourself to God without worshipping Him? Never;


What does it mean to love God?
John 14:15 If ye love me, keep my commandments.

What else is not clear?

You seem really high-strung smiley
Are you sure you are resting? cheesy

Possibly you should read my submission again and you will see I covered all angles.
I maintain that I THINK 'Keeping the Sabbath Holy' is the command that relates MORE to LOVING ONESELF too to rest.

Mark 6:31
Then Jesus said, "Let's go off by ourselves to a quiet place and rest awhile." He said this because there were so many people coming and going that Jesus and his apostles didn't even have time to eat.

Did you notice I am not against keeping the Sabbath but I explained proper understanding and knowing why?

It is not some legalistic robotic unloving exercise as was done by the Pharisee where they castigated Jesus disciples of plucking heads of corn and eating on the Sabbath or where Jesus healed on the Sabbath even though they would help their animal fallen into a pit.

Jesus is the Lord of Rest...Do you understand this?
Religion / Re: 1 Million Naira To Whoever Can Prove Any Of The Following by Alwaystrue(f): 2:11am On Mar 01, 2016
In addition, the whole law is hinged on love. Let us ask ourselves therefore, how does 'Remember the Sabbath day to keep it holy' reflect love?

I submit that this means we should love ourselves enought to:

1. Rest our bodies. How many people actually take time to rest? How many people chose to rest from physical labours trusting God to meet their needs on the day they do not work? I mean God feeds the birds without much toil, so resting one day will give you time to bond with family, friends and enjoy precious moments. This may even help reduce the numerous health challenges and people slumping and dying suddenly. God's laws are for our own good and they are not burden some either.

2. Rest our minds in Christ. Are you burdened and heavy laden? Come to Christ and be at rest. Worry and stressing on what we cannot change will not help. Relax in Christ and watch Him perfect all that concerns you. Remember Martha? Jesus said she was burdened about too many things but look at Mary...she sat at His feet in total surrender and was at peace. I think Mary was having a Sabbath in Luke 10:41-42. cheesy

I think keeping the Sabbath indeed is loving ourselves enough to rest and submit to God entirely.

Colosians 2:16-17
16 So don’t let anyone condemn you for what you eat or drink, or for not celebrating certain holy days or new moon ceremonies or Sabbaths. 17 For these rules are only shadows of the reality yet to come. And Christ himself is that reality.

Matthew 12:8
8 For the Son of Man is Lord, even over the Sabbath!

Sabbath means rest just as God rested on the 7th day from all his labours.
Jesus is the only One who can give rest and that is why He said:

Matthew 11:28
Come unto me, all ye that labour and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest

Further on we see:
Hebrews 4:1-8
God’s promise of entering his rest still stands, so we ought to tremble with fear that some of you might fail to experience it. 2 For this good news—that God has prepared this rest—has been announced to us just as it was to them. But it did them no good because they didn’t share the faith of those who listened to God . 3 FOR ONLY WE WHO BELIEVE CAN ENTER HIS REST . As for the others, God said,

“In my anger I took an oath:
‘They will never enter my place of rest,’”

even though this rest has been ready since he made the world. 4 We know it is ready because of the place in the Scriptures where it mentions the seventh day: “On the seventh day God rested from all his work.” 5 But in the other passage God said, “They will never enter my place of rest."

6 So God’s rest is there for people to enter, but those who first heard this good news failed to enter because they disobeyed God. 7 So GOD SET ANOTHER TIME FOR ENTERING HIS REST, and that time is TODAY. God announced this through David much later in the words already quoted:

“Today when you hear his voice,
don’t harden your hearts.”

8 Now if Joshua had succeeded in giving them this rest, God would not have spoken about another day of rest still to come. 9 So there is a special rest still waiting for the people of God. 10 FOR ALL WHO HAVE ENTERED INTO GOD' REST HAVE RESTED FROM THEIR LABOURS, JUST AS GOD DID AFTER CREATING THE WORLD. 11 So let us do our best to enter that rest. But if we disobey God, as the people of Israel did, we will fall.

The true sabbath is shown in verse 10. All those who have faith in Jesus have entered His rest because they have rested from all their labours and allowed Jesus take Lordship and will and do His pleasure in their lives.

Romans 14:5-6a
In the same way, some think one day is more holy than another day, while others think every day is alike. You should each be fully convinced that whichever day you choose is acceptable. 6 Those who worship the Lord on a special day do it to HONOUR him.

Whatsoever you do, let it be to the glory of the Lord.

May our cases be like:

Much people of the Jews therefore knew that he was there: and they came not for Jesus' sake only, but that they might see Lazarus also, whom he had raised from the dead.

People will come around to see the God in your life and what He has done for you. Don't fret.
