What do you do when life leaves you shattered? And you don’t know where to find the pieces… much less how to start putting anything back together?

I don’t know what your experience of loss looks like. Mine includes the heartbreak of 3 miscarriages and no living children yet.

In my struggle to find God in the midst of my grief and unanswered questions, I have to remember that I’m not at the end of the story yet. If I don’t see all of God’s promises happening right now, perhaps they are meant for a later time…

Perhaps, for the time being, we are on a boulder-strewn road at night, in a world full of brokenness and loss. And over on the horizon, there is a pale gleam of light that tells us that this night is almost over and daylight will eventually come…

That first gleam of dawn gives me hope. Hope that the darkness in this world is not the end of my story… One day I will stand in the presence of God in the full light of day. And He promises to wipe every tear from my eyes. (Revelation 21:4)

In the midst of our loss, we need Hope that is deeper than the darkness that threatens to fill our vision. In my deepest pain, I find God’s love to be deeper and more persistent.

Join me on this journey of reflecting on those moments which, like the first rays of sunlight stealing across a dark landscape, remind us of God’s Love in the very midst of grief and unanswered questions.

 

“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

  1. 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! 😊
