The Storm

Recently, my little family lost what was to be the new addition to our trio.

We were pregnant.

We were starting to share the pregnancy with some family and friends, but several weeks into my pregnancy I felt something was wrong.

We lost our baby.

We're devastated.

Just devastated.

Words cannot express the sadness felt after a miscarriage.

And words cannot express the loneliness felt with my husband miles away during this painful time.

I'm sad.

My heart is broken.

And I'm exhausted.

One of my favorite songs by Casting Crowns comforts me...

was sure by now
That You would have reached down
And wiped our tears away, stepped in and saved the day
But once again, I say, Amen and it's still raining

As the thunder rolls
I barely hear Your whisper through the rain, "I'm with you"
And as Your mercy falls I raise my hands
And praise the God who gives and takes away

And I'll praise You in this storm and I will lift my hands
For You are who You are no matter where I am
And every tear I've cried You hold in Your hand
You never left my side and though my heart is torn
I will praise You in this storm

"Give thanks in all circumstances, because this is God's will for you in Christ Jesus." - 1 Thessalonians 5:18.
