Proverbs 16:4
The LORD has made everything for its own purpose, Even the wicked for the day of evil.

Everything has a purpose. This means every trial we experience, everything we want but do not have, and everything we have but do not want has its own purpose. Those who can not have children but want them are supposed to experience it for the purpose God has given to their life. 
This verse helps me to understand it better. 
“Does not the potter have the right to make out of the same lump of clay some pottery for special purposes and some for common use?”
Romans 9:21
