National Pregnancy and Infant loss Remembrance Day was last month. But sometimes it’s the words of encouragement when you don’t expect it that leave the biggest imprint on your heart. Especially since this month we are focusing on being thankful, I’m going to take the time and boldly say that I am thankful. Thankful for the experiences that caused deep pain, because they brought me closer to my Savior. They allowed me to know him in a way I never had before.
Yes, I’m thankful for the pain, because it broke me down and tore my pride. It made me realize that my strength is not my own but His. And in His supernatural embrace I found peace, joy and rest.
So to the hurting mom who is still mourning her loss, I offer these words of comfort and pray they lift you up. You are not alone….
Though the empty feeling is one you are constantly fighting, there’s one that’s fighting for you. You are not alone.
He’s there to embrace you when the sadness comes. When thoughts of what could have been start to plague you, He reminds you the best is yet to come.
Don’t let the pain build a wall but rather let it break you down, so you can receive all He has to offer. He will not fail you.
This life is temporary. The pain is temporary. And one day there will be no more of that.
We will be in God’s presence, fully secure that nothing will keep us away. There will be no more sorrow, no more pain, no more crying. No more aching heart. Only God in his infinite love.
But while we are all here on earth, He is with us. He promised not to leave us, and He always keeps his promises.
Let him fill your life in abundance with joy, laughter, and the desire to keep going.
Don’t give up, he’s there.
Don’t give up, you are not alone.
Though you may feel misunderstood, he’s seen every last detail and he understands.
You’re not crazy, there’s nothing wrong with you. You are just facing the process, and you will get through it.
You’re not alone, God is there. He is love and his love is enough.
It NEVER fails.
