In the midst of deep loss, it’s easy to see only the shattered fragments of our soul. And even easier to miss the gentle way Jesus is transforming our hearts in the process.

Often it feels like we’re just stumbling down a boulder strewn road at night, in a world full of brokenness and loss. But this is not the end of our story…

Yes, I carry the heartache of 4 miscarriages and no children. And I know you, friend, also likely carry deep loss.

But like the first rays of dawn on the horizon, stealing across a quiet landscape, we are surrounded by persistent reminders of God’s love in the midst of the darkness.

Glimpses of the coming Sunrise give me hope to keep walking forward in the dark nights. Will you join me on this journey of searching for these reminders of hope?

“The way of the righteous is like the first gleam of dawn, which shines ever brighter until the full light of day.” Proverbs 4:18

AcaciaTree croppedWhen I Don’t Know What To Believe Anymore
When life came crashing down and I found myself in a dark time of not knowing what to believe anymore, I needed tangible proof of God’s Love. Woven into the Jewish tabernacle and the Acacia tree is such a clear picture of Jesus on the cross, with a whiplashed back and a crown of thorns…

God Remembers Our Losses

God Remembers Our Losses
I felt like God had left me alone to struggle through my grief from 3 miscarriages. But 3 miracles on Mother’s Day showed me so clearly that God understands the loss we experience, and cares deeply about our hearts.

299HWhen The Pain Doesn’t Make Sense
When the pain doesn’t make sense, what if I have a deeper problem going on? One that God is always helping me with, and not even the deepest pain in my life can stop Him from helping me?

  1. Thank you for checking out my blog. I’m glad you found something encouraging there! I suffered one miscarriage only, but I have friends who have been through multiple miscarriages – one who eventually had five children after four losses. I can’t imagine the pain of hoping, being excited and then losing a child – it breaks my heart for you. I guess I can relate slightly in other ways. Promises that don’t come when we expect or look like we hoped leave us flattened, don’t they? As you’ve so rightly said, those losses draw us closer to God as he comforts us even when we don’t understand what he is doing. I admire your faith and peace in spite of your great losses. Hold fast. I’ll be praying for you too!

  2. My co-worker, like you endured 3 miscarriages. She is just days away from giving birth to her second child. She is very careful to obey all doctors orders for the best possible outcome. Please pray for her as she approaches her due date. Her name is Elizabeth and her due date is May 29th.

    1. Thankyou for your encouragement in sharing your coworker’s story. I will definitely be praying for Elizabeth and her baby, especially that she has a safe delivery at the end of May!


      1. So sorry Julie, I just commented on another post. Elizabeth is doing fine. She is home safely with her second baby girl, Ireland Kelli. She was ever so careful throughout her pregnancy because like you, she lost too many. We are continuing to pray for you, our dear sister in Christ!!

  3. While I have not gone through a miscarriage personally, I have experienced different kinds of loss. Every time, God has shown me some kind of Hope or gleam of dawn to look forward to. Not always in the midst of the loss, but after a short season. May God hold you close to his heart!

    1. Thankyou for your kind words. I agree with you that it’s always easier to see what God is doing in hindsight, instead of in the moment! Our experience of loss may be different, but the thread that weaves us together is Jesus. And I’m thankful for friends like you, who share the Hope of Jesus to encourage others on the journey! Btw- I love your blog! 😊
