Would you join me in praying for those facing loss? I know that includes so many of us - in many different situations.
This in on my heart - though I've debated posting it at all. It seems a little selfish to ask as it isn't a huge or urgent request. I've been praying and trying to find where God wants me in the midst of some of my own pain. I want to learn. I want to walk the path that He has called me to - and to do it with joy and contentment. Sometimes its hard.
Today (Oct 7th) was the due date of our little that was born into heaven. It's been a hard loss for me for a number of reasons. Though I only carried this little one here for about 10 weeks, I still carry this sweet child in my heart. I know that there are many others here who have faced this loss and other loss related to children. Many far worse. Tonight I was working on a quilt square for a gal that has lost her son. It was an opportunity to pray for this precious family facing a loss that I can't even imagine.
I'm feeling more at peace, though I still miss this baby. I've been praying. I want to be in God's will and not get stuck in feeling sad or hopeless or envious. I know beyond a shadow of a doubt that God loves me and is working things out for good. I know that doesn't mean a life without pain and heartache.
As I've been praying today, my heart has been turned to the many people that are hurting, grieving. I know so many that have faced such great heartache. I'm praying today for those who have experienced loss - that you would know beyond a shadow of a doubt that you are loved so deeply by a loving Father.
A friend reminded me of the truths in Psalm 23. Some of the things that really resonated with my heart are that the Lord is my shepherd, I shall not want. He does fully meet my needs and I'm thankful for that. He restoreth my soul. This is a sweet promise. Thank you Lord!
Please pray with me.
