i think most people don’t think about the worst case scenario of a situation & if they do, typically it never seems like “your reality.” it seems like something that might happen to someone else but never to yourself.

until it does.

and not in a “my life is perfect and never has problems” type of way, but in a true joy that is focused on the blessing over the doubts.

this was the case for me.

my husband & i’s journey to becoming parents started out very differently than expected. as soon as we found out i was pregnant, we prayed over this beautiful life inside of me. miscarriage was not even a thought on my mind. i knew miscarriages were common and even my mom had two of them, but i didn’t worry about losing my baby. miscarriage didn’t even seem like an option; i was so fixated on the soon to be reality of becoming a mom. little did we know, less than 2 weeks later, we would lose the baby.

below, i go into the full story on my youtube channel if you’d like to check it out.

but…. despite the hardship we endured, i pressed into God.

psalm 62:8 says, “trust in Him at all times, you people; pour out your hearts before Him. God is our refuge.”

God doesn’t make bad things happen to us. but i can tell you I am a stronger woman because of the challenging things i’ve walked through in my life.

were they fun? nope.

did i enjoy the process of pain? not at all.

did i learn how to trust the Lord more and draw closer to Him in the process? absolutely!

so, i challenge you today to see the difficult things in your life as an avenue for gaining a new perspective & learning more about Christ.

in this journey of miscarrying, i learned more about God’s comfort. i learned to lean on Him and that He wants to & is there to comfort me. He doesn’t cause pain, but He does understand it. so don’t try to go through difficult things on your own. lean on the one whose shoulder is already there for you to lean on.

God is so so good.
