God is doing some great things in my life....I am not allowing the devil take over my life because of the death of my son...I am making a declaration that God is taking the shackles of me...no more living in a mental or emotional prison..I chose to LIVE!!!!...It hurts so bad that my son is not with me, but I am not going to lose hope...I refuse to let DEPRESSION , anxiety, sadness, offense, bitterness, or anger take over my life...I chose to serve, praise and honor God through my pain right now...If anyone understand what I am talking about...Let me hear ya...Hallelujah anyhow!

A Blessing to your own heart. God is pleased im sure. He wants the best and He knows your heart hurts even in the trust in Him. He knows when you are over welomed with sorrow and you do need that time. Being sorrowful is not a sin, it is a God even recation to loss. Let You pain flow threw you and let God be beside you as you cry. Hold on to family and let friends be there to ease the pain too.. i sure am glad to see You are doing alright right now. ..and i am sorry for the loss of Your son.. *hug*

Hope,
I don't understand what you're going through, but this has been such an encouragement. Its so easy to love and praise the Lord in the good times, but in the bad times we just want to blame Him. So many times we don't understand why things happen, but God has a plan. I'm so sorry for your loss, but think of all the Lord can do through you now!

Because you have loved and lost and can still praise.. i know you are the one to ask this to: a friend of mine lost their 2 yr old daughter unexpectedly last week and calling hrs are tomorrow. They claim to be believers yet I don't think they really are. Since u have lost your son... would you be willing to send her a message. As I have never lost a child I can not connect or relate on the level that I feel you can.. .and I was thinking that possibly God could use you to support them and maybe bring them full circle back to Christ. Would you be willing 2 do that?

Quoting Savannah:

What a beautiful woman you are, inside and out. I pray that I would be as strong as you in such a situation. You are trully amazing. God bless you. A wonderful thing about knowing God is knowing that you will hold your baby again one day. What a reunion that will be. ((hugs))


Savannah



All glory and honor goes to God...I cannot imagine that just 8 months ago I was pregnant and 3 months ago I gave birth to my son who passed...my life was a mess...being homeless for a short period of time while pregnant...being scammed by some stranger who took my money that caused me to be homeless...From the pain and abuse from family while pregnant...It is nothing but God that got me through and that Iam here alive today to talk about it....



 



 



I have hope that Iwill see my son again... and that I will hug and hold him again as I did in the delivery room...



Can't wait for that reunion

Hope let me tell you honey... you should be praising not mourning! I don't know your situation but you should praise because what an honor for a little one to be called home to live with the LORD. It may hurt us here in our earthly bodies and our hearts bc of the loss but what a beautiful glorious day it will be when Jesus comes back to rapture His church family! You will see your son again, and with things taking places as they are in this world you will be reunited with your son sooner than you think! Praise be to GOD! You go girl!

Yeh for you Hope. What you are expressing is why my favourite hymn is Shout to the Lord by Darlene Zschech of Hillsong fame. When troubles get me down this is what I do, I sing Shout to the Lord at the top of my voice. Praise God in all things. Score - God 1 devil 0

Quoting Chanda:

I too am chosing to do so.I know God will bless me with another child.He has given me hope in little things he has brought my way.Meanwhile i grieve the loss of my sweet baby and move on.I do not blame God.I do wonder the whys of it all but thats natural.My child is with God.I miss my baby so much but i know that itd in a so much better place then i am .I just wish family could understand and acknowledge our child did exsist and is in heaven


You know what Chanda



 



people have been telling us to move on or not acknowledge that our baby exiist, and it hurts becuase the one's who are doing it are the ones we trust and love...but than i think of how Jesus was not even honored in his own home town...and how today Jesus has shown this country mercy but not allowing the enemy to wipe us out with a nuclear weapon or rebuild them after disaster..yet people still do not acknowledge that he is NOW and forever a LIVING God.



Our babies are special not because of anything they did, but because God gave them to us...for however long they were in the womb or on this earth....and anything God gives is a token, or gift...



 



Just like you I wonder why...and like you said..it is natural...I am learning everyday that not everything is in our control...



You know i am praying for you, and stand in agreement with you, your husband and my husband...that God will bless our womb again with a baby...in God's time and appointed season



 



God's blessing and my love



Hope

Hope, you are a Godly inspiration! Thanks for sharing that and giving us a current example of obedience and love and faith. Trusting God through this dark time in your life takes great courage and faith. Knowing He will take care of your heart and soul can be a blessing. You're grieving in Godly sorrow, not fleshly sorrow and that is such an awesome example of Christian womanhood. Thank you.

Hope even your picture looks like you are Praising God. Although I have never gone through the loose of a child I raised( My husband and I miscarried our first chid very early in our first pregnancy) Our family went through a rough spring in 2001. Between March 15 and June 8 my dad, father-in-law and my mother all left their earthly bodies to walk the Golden Streets of Heaven. Yes we could debate where our Saved love ones really spend their time between now and the Second Coming of Christ. The important thing is they will be in Heaven when we all get there. In between all of this our family dog was hit by a car and my job was eliminated. Was this the most fun spring of my life? No BUT it did NOT take GOD by Surprise. I could go on and on about that spring, instead I chose to Praise God for the lessons I learned.

satan did not win then and he WILL not WIN in the end!!!!!
