Late Term and Child Loss

Faith Friday

Ok, ladies... For all of us struggling to recapture our faith this is our place to talk it out. Where are you on your journey? What's your big struggle right now? Has anything touched you/helped you along this journey?

Re: Faith Friday

  • I shared a few days ago about the "grief share" daily emails. I'm finally at the portion of the emails that is geared toward child loss. This is the email I got this morning...

    David noticed that his servants were whispering among themselves and he realized the child was dead. “Is the child dead?”‘ he asked. “Yes,” they replied, “he is dead.”

    Then David got up from the ground. After he had washed, put on lotions and changed his clothes, he went into the house of the Lord and worshiped. Then he went to his own house, and at his request they served him food, and he ate.

    His servants asked him, “Why are you acting this way? While the child was alive, you fasted and wept, but now that the child is dead, you get up and eat!” He answered, “While the child was still alive, I fasted and wept. I thought, 'Who knows? The Lord may be gracious to me and let the child live.’ But now that he is dead, why should I fast? Can I bring him back again? I will go to him, but he will not return to me.” (2 Samuel 12:19-23)

    David said with assurance, “I will go to him.” David’s young child was gone, but he knew with certainty that he would see that child again. He made the important decision to go on living in the meantime. David knew that his son was already in the presence of the living God.

    If David, who lived in Old Testament times, had this certainty, how much more certain can we be about our own children now that Jesus Christ has come and given us a greater hope?"

    This is the same story that our pastor shared at Mary's funeral and I think I need to start remembering this.
  • last night I was reading my devotional book and I came across the words:

    "In your place of unrest...look at MY CALM."

    TTCing again after two losses has been such a headgame.  I am worried about my fertility after two surgeries back to back...I am worried about miscarrying again...I am worried about going to another anatomy scan and hearing, "oops...we were wrong!  This did happen again!".  Some days I just want to stick my head in the sand.  Last night I was just really anxious and I read that and just saw that everytime I look to God He will be calm...He has got me in his hands and he will take care of me.  He is not worried about my future...and though I am confident that He does weep with me, I know that He is also in control and can be trusted.  I can let go and let things happen.

  • This is something I needed to read. Thinking about getting pregnant again scares me. I'm trying to let it go and trust God, but it is hard when I think He made such a bad call allowing Parker Jane to be taken from us. I want to control things and do it my way. It is so hard to let go of that especially thinking about caring for my child. Then I start to think, "There's a lot of 'me' and 'I' going on in my thought process." Lord, help me get over myself and give it to You! I'm trying to remember that if I love Parker that much, how much more does He love her?

    "In your place of unrest...look at MY CALM."

  • I'm reading a devotional book called Jesus Calling by Sarah Young for a women's Bible study that I am a part of. Part of one of the daily readings says "In order to hear my voice, you must release all your worries into my care. Entrust to me everything that concerns you. This clears the way for you to seek my face unhindered. Let me free you from fear that is hiding deep inside you. Sit quietly in my presence, allowing my light to soak into you and drive out any darkness lodged within you." This part really hit home with me. I'm trying to give it to God but it's so hard sometimes.
