They look so perfect

Jerm 1:15

mt 5:8
ps30:5
Acts 5:18-19

They look so perfect, fully formed with fingers and toes but way to small for this world. I see them pretty much every week. They have a brain that was getting ready to think great thoughts. Their skin is dull and lifeless. The spark of love of God and the love of a man and woman is gone.

I know this means something besides the cold clinical data I provide. There will be no more thumps and pats from little feet and hands. Eyes that never opened to see their world of the womb remain focused on the last image they saw, the Lord of the universe who formed this little life and now takes them home.

Lord, you say you knew these little lives before they were conceived. The mothers never guessed this would happen. I know that you teach most often through pain and heartache. I can’t begin to guess what you might be telling these women, but I know that you are available to hold all of us in your loving arms and be there in all my tears and pain, no matter what.

Your world the bible says “blessed are the pure of heart”. These little one never knew anything but purity. Most of their thoughts were based on love that both You and their mothers had for each one of these little one. I think mothers know,” You’ve loved my child as much as they did. Talked to them, just as they did.” “Blessed are the pure of heart, for they shall see God.” These babies had no choice but to see you.

Lord each one of these women have lost more than a child. They lost hope and they all think that they are the first to have ever gone through this. Lots of people, your people, have lost hope for a season. They are angry and frustrated and they think they are there alone through all of this. How you long to remind them of your presence

“Tears may last for a night, but joy comes in the morning.” The night already seems long. Show them your light and your peace at the appropriate time. Give us all a hunger for the right things, so we don’t have to stay in this prison of darkness. Freedom and light are in you, with the key of release in your right hand.

This is very touching, both of my sisters have experienced miscarriages and a close friend -still birth. To think some would willingly prevent life from maturing, when others grieve at those lost before their time. God bless you- your words touched me today! Danette
