One year ago today I found out I was pregnant. You can read about that story here. Hubby and I had been trying for a year and looking back now at what we've gone through this last year with our loss and the tumors, it was a miracle we ever got pregnant. God never says we won't go through pain and suffering and difficult times but He has promised that He will never leave us. So we continue to lean on Him and trust that He knows what's ahead. There are times when I forget to surrender my worries and fears and I'm reminded that I must daily, sometimes minute by minute, look to Him and let go. I found this song on The Weigand's blog post here and I'm so grateful for Casey's words about her most recent miscarriage and sharing her heart. I'd love to share this song with you. It's called Have Your Way, by Britt Nicole.
Readers come across our "loss" link at different times so send a comment or email my way if you have questions. I would love to swap stories and experiences. We can all learn from each other, as everyone we meet knows something we do not. This song reminds me of the following two verses and I thought I'd share them with you. Be encouraged.
Trust in the Lord with all your heart and do not lean on your own understanding. In all your ways acknowledge Him, and He will make your paths straight. Proverbs 3:5-6 (NASB)
Consider it all joy, my brethren, when you encounter various trials, knowing that the testing of your faith produces endurance. And let endurance have its perfect result, so that you may be perfect and complete, lacking in nothing. James 1:2-4 (NASB)
