Learning to Trust the Designer & His Plans for us

  This weekend past our family experienced the loss of our precious unborn baby. 

You may have read this post where I shared the exciting news regarding my mom’s seventh pregnancy.  But the Lord had different plans for us and He decided to take our little one home to be with Him rather than allowing my mother to carry to full term.

It certainly isn’t easy to accept something that we may see as an error, but over and over again we realise that the Lord is indeed the one who orchestrates everything, and that this miscarriage was definitely not a mistake.  Nor did it take Him by surprise...

The Lord wants us to trust Him; to have complete faith in His abilities and to rely on Him for all our needs.  Last night I again was reminded to leave everything in our Father’s hands when I turned to Psalm 37 whilst reading my Bible.  The words ‘trust’, ‘commit’ and ‘be still’ stood out to me as I went over them. 
Whatever we may be going through as a family, we can rest and be sure that the Lord is there and that He is grieving right alongside us.

Much love,

Dear Kelly, lots of love from us and big hugs. You are God's precious children and very dear to Him. Every hard thing that has happened to me has only worked together for the good, if even just to strengthen my relationship with Him. Bless you all!
