I’m in need of prayers. Please.
A few months back, I shared the difficult journey I’ve experienced this year as I have endured two back-to-back miscarriages.
My husband and I have two children, ages 6 and 4, and we are so thankful for them. I miscarried our third child in February at 9 weeks, and miscarried our fourth child in June, also at 9 weeks. It has been the most painful thing I’ve ever endured, but the Lord has been with me through it all.
After the second miscarriage, I did not want to try for a baby again. But the Lord had other plans, and we were shocked to find out in November that I was expecting again. I am now 11 weeks pregnant, and already showing quite a bit. We had a sonogram 10 days ago and baby looked great. While I am thankful that I have made it this far, I am also crippled by the fear of losing this baby too. Some days I just feel like I’m going to go crazy with how terrified I am.
I need prayers desperately-prayers that I would find peace and rest in the Lord, and not in my circumstances. That I would trust Him with my baby’s life, and trust in His good and perfect will. But I also am asking for prayers for this baby-that this baby would continue to grow and come to term, and that God would enable and strengthen my body to carry this pregnancy. Please.
