Miscarriages – Hope Amid Darkness
We were elated with electrified emotions when we learned that we were about to have a baby! It seemed like it took forever just to get pregnant! Years of waiting and then still it took what seemed like forever and a day just to get pregnant.
Then when we were about shout the good news all the way to the end of the Milky Way Galaxy, we learned that in the seventh week, we had a miscarriage.
Emotionally, we were drained, and it definitely stole the thunder and joy from our joyous outlook of our soon future. Needless to say, we did not reach the point of telling everyone, so our sadness and let down was mainly internal, only sharing with direct family and our pastor at the time.
Not too long after, although seemingly forever, we again learned the incredible news that we were pregnant and had a little person to be born in arms of expectancy and love.
We took a difference approach this time – we voiced our faith in God and were bold in staking our claim in His promises! We "Stood on the Promises of God our Saviour," as the song goes. We looked forward and "pressed towards the mark!" We even had a Christian co-worker tell us just short of a full-on prophesy, "You're GOING to have this baby!"
