Pregnancy Loss and Our Hearts

Pregnancy Loss and Our Hearts

This month is Awareness Month. Pink and Blue. This can be a hard time for these families. I know when we suffered ours it was one of the hardest things I ever went through. I was also a newly married teen, so talk about being confused and scared on top of it all.

A lot runs through your mind during this. It can rip marriages apart or bring them together, and do the same to your relationships with Christ. For me, it brought me and my husband closer. He’s the one person I’d talk to. Many, many late nights talking and crying. I was mad and upset that this happened.


I didn’t know at the time, but God used this situation as a way to soften my heart toward him. It wasn’t that I was super hardened or anything. I just didn’t think much about God or Jesus. I knew little of them. My husband, on the other hand, was a believer. God used him in my life to do so much.

My life turned around once I met him. I wasn’t out partying with my friends as I wanted to spend what little free time I had with my fiancée. Busy, teen who was in band and choir, so that took most of my time. The other before my husband was partying and off and off with the wrong guy.

God used this loss to bring me to my knees. To show me that I needed Christ in my life.  God used my husband to led me into seeing my need for salvation. What an amazing gift. I know it’s hard to look for these things when something bad happens. God knows us. If someone is out there suffering or has lost a child, cling to God. He has a plan. We may not know what it is until we’re in Heaven. Cling to Him.
