Sometimes you hear news that just makes you wanna ask …. God why? Twice within the past month I’ve heard from two close families that have had miscarriages.
While I’m not going to reveal who they are or any of their business, I can’t help but to think about how they must feel and the urge within me to ask……God Why?
I’ve been blessed with two sons. There was a time before they were born that the doctors said they may be born with defects, abnormalities, and all sorts of other complications. Not too mention…..even if they would survive. I know this may be the first time that you’ve heard me mention this, but it’s true. I can’t describe the agony and pain it caused Melisia and I. Talk about feeling helpless? I felt hopeless.
I’m a witness today of God’s awesome power to turn an ugly situation into one that shows HIS GLORY!
There are things in life that just get to me. This is one of them. I know that God isn’t a respecter of persons but how certain things come to pass (good or bad) in life leave me amazed and spending more time than I care to admit pondering about them.
When I think about the grave reports that we received before our sons were born and to hear about my friends’ loss I feel the urge to ask…….God Why?
Before making this post I sent a text message to both father’s to get permission about sharing this story. They both agreed that I could share. One of them responded with a scripture (Psalm 18:1-2, AMP I LOVE You fervently and devotedly, O Lord, my Strength.2 The Lord is my Rock, my Fortress, and my Deliverer; my God, my keen and firm Strength in Whom I will trust and take refuge, my Shield, and the Horn of my salvation, my High Tower. )
Here’s what I gather after reading the scripture! Perhaps God knew that my friends would trust HIM and HIS word more. Grow stronger and develop a closer walk with HIM. And I would spend the rest of my time asking…..God why?
