Smile How has God helped you in with your PCOS?

How has God helped you with you PCOS? I know that with me spiritually, my faith has grown. I'm learning that I need to be lending on God with everything and I mean everything. It's nice to know that God is the maker of Heaven and Earth and there is nothing that can separated us from his love. Praise God!

I think of it more like this... God allows me to have PCOS... why?

I have explored several possibilites...

1) a trial or tribulation to make me stronger
2) humble me from being vain or arrogant about my outer appearance
3) to remind me that life will be sooo much better when this world is through (eternal life)

God calls us to hand everything over to him. I learned to do this with my PCOS. Once I was able to hand it to him, it wasn't long after that in the end of 2007 He told me that I would have "a child of mine in two thousand nine" it sounds cheezy, but on 4-24-09, i had my little girl

I was praying in Feb. this year and God told me that I was never going to have kids but he opened my womb and gave me a gift. My gift is my son Jonathan who's name means " Gift of God". I have prayed many times pouring my heart out to God and he has answered with " I have a plan for you" " You won't give birth to more children but you will be a mother to many" " I made you that way you are for a reason" " Jonathan has many brothers and sisters for all of my children are created with the same flesh and blood"

These things strengthen me when I am down!

Default God is Helping Me

Hey guys!!!

I have been dealing with PCOS for almost a year now. It's been a constant struggle but I am making it. Since being diagnosed in March 2009, I've lost about 17 lbs; but I was on Metformin at the time. As of last month (december), I have taken myself off of the medication. I just couldn't see myself taking this everyday for another year. So I've decided to put my full faith in God and I prayed to him for healing on the inside and out. But of course I have to do my part. This past Monday I have been eating better and exercising. I am taking it one day at a time. It's not easy but with God's help I know I can do it. I checked my weight this morning and I have already lost 1 pound in 2 days with just eating healthier and exercising. Oh, I also take a multivitamin and BC pill. On February 15th, I have an appt to see an Endocrinologist. I will basically tell him my story and that i will not be put on any medication. Also to schedule another check up to see my progress with just eating healthier and exercising more.

So to all of you, continue to put your faith and trust God. He has NEVER steared me wrong!!! I will pray for each and everyone of you. Together we can fight this.

thanks you ladies for sharing your encouragement and testimony. It is such a blessing to hear that God can really pull us ladies through this (PCOS). Even when it seems like the world (and I feel like sometimes its our bodies too) is against us. It's nice to know that God is in control and He really does care about us. Thanks for sharing.

I am Orthodox and definitely believe that God is the one in charge of what will happen. This is something I cannot control and I feel like I've put it in God's hands, but part of me still worries about it. How were you able to just not worry about it? I feel like between the labs and u/s I have to think about it. Please help! I don't think that God would not allow me to have a baby. I teach kids and love kids so much and Idk why I am not pregnant...Advice?

Amanda,

We all feel and know what you are going though. Somehow it will get better...whether they might need to find the right combo of medicine or something else.

How old are your children, could they help out around the house any?

Good luck and God is with you.

Cgwife23-I think with us being human it comes naturally to worry. This is also when our faith is tested. Try not to lose heart. Hold on to this scripture. When I start to worry, I read this and it helps. "Trust in the Lord with all your heart and lean not on your own understanding. In all your ways acknowledge him and he will make your paths straight" -Prov 3:5-6.
It's hard because we don't fully understand why we don't have children/or have children yet. Know that God is in control and he is for you. He won't forsake you. He still loves you.
" The Lord is close to the Brokenhearted and saves those who are crush in spirit"-Psalm 34:18

Amanda-know that I'm praying that the Lord will give you strength and healing.
