I got this email a few minutes ago.
When I discovered that I was pregnant last November, it was a thrill!
I then subscribed to Babycenter.com’s baby development calendar to help me make the most of my baby’s growth in me (as what I did with my older kids). The message here would have been true if I did not have a miscarriage last December. He/She would have been 22 weeks old already today, with all the features described here. He/She would have been the third child in our family.
Just this morning, my devotion reminded me that whenever I end my prayer with “Amen”, it means I’m telling God, “Yes, God. Your will is supreme. You know better than I do. Your plan is better than mine. Your hope for me exceeds the highest dream I have for my life, for my marriage, for my children, for my ministry. You are good, always good. And whatever I prayed for and whatever Your respond will be – Yes, No, or Wait, I am willing (help me to be willing) to say ‘Yes’ to Your answer, and ‘Yes’ to Your will.”
Although there is still that pinch of pain within me whenever I see expecting mothers, I have learned to acknowledge that the life that was lost in me was not God’s “Yes” for me because He is saying “Yes” for far better things to happen. AMEN!
