Death and God


Many people feel they've lost all faith in God.

It is hard to imagine a loving, compassionate God who would let things like this happen. What did an unborn baby ever do to deserve this? What have you done? 

You may feel your faith is being tested right now, and it is completely understandable that you will doubt in God. Regardless of your religion, "Why, God?" is a universal question when we face suffering. In many ways, you will have to think your way through your conflicting feelings about a God that you love and believe in, but you feel has failed you. Your clergy, pastor, preacher, rabbi, or priest may be able to help.

I thought of it this way: God is here for us. He will carry us through our troubles if we let Him, but He does not guarantee that life will go as we wish. Death and suffering are part of our life, and our faith is there to help us through it, not prevent it. The last thing I wanted to do in my hour of need was to cut myself off from the only person who would not say something thoughtless or let me down--God.

Thoughts for Christians   

We should always remember that earth is not heaven. Heaven is our reward for going through trials, pain, and suffering of this earth and remaining faithful Christians. God does not always answer our prayers in exactly the way we want, but He is there, listening, and caring.   

Many words from the Bible are comforting for moms going through miscarriage. Here are a few:

About your baby:

Isaiah 49:1 - The LORD called me from the womb, from the body of my mother he named my name.

Jeremiah 1:5 - Before I formed you in the womb, I knew you.

About you:

Isaiah 41:10 - So do not fear, for I am with you; do not be dismayed, for I am your God. I will strengthen you and help you; I will uphold you with my righteous right hand.

Mark 11:24 - Therefore I say to you whatever things you ask when you pray, believe that you receive them, and you will have them.

Jeremiah 33:6 - Behold, I will bring you health and cure, and I will cure you, and will reveal unto you the abundance of peace and truth.

Matthew 5:4 Blessed are those who mourn, for they will be comforted.

Jeremiah 29:11 I know the plans I have for you says the LORD…to give you a future and a Hope.
