After writing about our miscarriage story two weeks ago, I couldn’t have felt more loved by our friends, family, and people I’ve never met. It’s still crazy to me that social media can reach so many people. These past couple months, I’ve felt God’s presence more than ever. And when I really think about life’s difficult situations, I know that’s why we go through them. To feel closeness with our Creator; to feel cared for; to learn more about his goodness.
Hardships in life, whether short term or long term, can either draw you nearer to Him or push you further for him. My prayer for all of my dear brothers and sisters in Christ out there is that it would cause you to embrace Him. Sure, you’re allowed to yell and scream at first. I know that’s my first reaction! I even questioned God several times. But, wipe away my first layer of natural human defense, and then all I want to do is curl up in God’s arms and let him wipe away my tears. I’m still SO learning how to relinquish a sense of control and anxiety in my life due to life’s unfortunate situations, but as long as I’m living and breathing, I am gifted every new day to learn how to cope and dwell more in Him than the world’s hopes and promises.
A verse that is helping me through these anxiety provoking, wanting to control everything situations right now, is a very well known verse.
