Babies go to Heaven. As Christians we believe that. However, I experienced a unique revelation as to what happens to unborn children that are lost. Even after experiencing a miscarriage, I never really gave much thought to what happened to that baby besides that it went to heaven. As a matter of fact, I did not think that much at all of the miscarriage I experienced at the age of sixteen. It hardly ever entered my thoughts until I got married and considered having children. Then, I would look at children and wonder: What would my child look like? What would my child be doing right now? If my child had lived, he/she would be about this age. With the passage of time and the birth of two healthy daughters, my memory had dulled and I had all but forgotten the child I might have had.
One night, we barely avoided a head-on collision. By all "natural" means, the car should have at least clipped our front bumper on the left side before moving back into his lane. The Lord opened my eyes to the spiritual realm for a small moment in time. I saw an angel there, in between the two cars where they should have made impact. There was an odd feeling of recognition. I had seen the angel before because this was not the first time I had seen into the spiritual realm. He had stood guard over my husband and I as we prayed one night. I had also felt his presence with me at other times. I had the sense of an intimate knowing besides simple recognition as this being my guardian angel. So I started to pray.
"Lord, who is this angel? You've sent him to us before, but I know him. Who is he, Lord? He's awfully young-I didn't know angels were so young."
"He's the child you would have had thirteen years ago," Jesus answered without hesitation.
Needless to say, I dissolved into a heaving, sobbing mass of tears. My poor husband was flabbergasted. He had no idea about what I had seen. I had never even told him that I had experienced a miscarriage before I met him. The angelís identity and origin was a shocking revelation for both of us.
I learned from my experience that babies who never get a chance at life go to Heaven to become our own personal guardian angels. No life is ever lost in vain-the Lord has a plan for them.
How gracious and merciful of our Heavenly Father to give you such a blessed revelation of your child. I believe every word you wrote. Your experience opens up so many thoughts and possibilities. There is so much to know, but sometimes God gives us a glimpse. Thanks for sharing.
