With those thoughts, much of what I read or see posted on various Facebook pages put so much emphasis on grief and dealing with the grief. I'm not trying to minimize grief, I have my share, however, I wish the focus centered more around hope than grief. Because you see, there is a great hope, even in the midst of pain. We have a sovereign God who orchestrates our life in a perfect way that will glorify Himself. We can't see the big picture but He can. And that is the Glorious unfolding.
I heard this song the other day on my way to soccer practice and these thoughts I've shared came to mind. I can't focus on sadness and grief at the loss of my little girl. I must turn my focus to the hope in Christ who gives and takes life away. He has a plan and it is good because God is good, all the time. To God be the glory!
Take a minute and listen to the song. It has a powerful message for anyone who is struggling or going through something they wouldn't have chosen to.
For all you parents who have lost a child through miscarriage, stillbirth, or another way, you can grieve but remember there is hope in Jesus Christ. Trust Him and rest in His unfailing love.
