Those who plant in tears will harvest SHOUTS OF JOY. They weep as they plant their seed, but they sing as they return with the HARVEST.



Psalm 126:5-6

The Mountain

Today it is cloudy and gray outside. That is kind of how I feel like my life has been for awhile. No one tells you of the emptiness you will have when you have lost a baby. No matter how far along you were that was your child that you never got to hold.

I have a wonderful woman in my life who is working with me to see what I am lacking. We no longer live in the Garden and eat the way God intended us to eat. Our body sometimes is trying to tell us that something is not working right. I believe that is what mine has been and is trying to do. We have discovered one area that will be very easy to work on and I pray that the Lord will continue to show us and heal my body of these minor deficiencies. The Lord has plans for His people,plans to prosper them and not harm them. He will see you through your times of need and if you listen He will call your name and pull you up out of that valley that you are in. It may be very slowly but He will bring you back to the mountain. I am ready to be back on the mountain, I sure hope the Lord is ready to put me there.

...for the God on the mountain, is still God in the valley - when things go wrong, He'll make it right. For the God of the good times, is still God in the bad times - the God of the day, is still God in the night...

Oh goodness. I didn't even catch that you had posted a new post!

No, I do not know what it is like to lose a baby. I sometimes wonder how I would react...how I would feel. How could I not feel exactly like you are? What a devastating, heart wrenching experience. You are a blessing to watch and you have had a good testimony through this whole ordeal. It is a big blessing to me.

Knowing that we have a God Who is in control definitelys bring a peace. One of my favorite verses is Isaiah 26:3 "Thou wilt keep him in perfect peace, whose mind is stayed on thee: because he trusteth in thee." I have claimed that verse so many times and find such comfort in it. I pray you will as well.

Praying for you! :)
