Ninety-four days…

2 Corinthians 1:3-4

Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of mercies and God of all comfort, who comforts us in all our tribulation, that we may be able to comfort those who are in any trouble, with the comfort with which we ourselves are comforted by God. (N.K.J.V.)

In this verse, Paul is speaking in the context of trials and tribulations coming as a result of steadfastness to Christ.  I also see it as a reminder as well as a promise, that if we hold on to our God in times of trouble and allow His love and mercy to comfort us, then He will use us to comfort others.

I say it in my book, and I will say it again to you today, “I did not suffer fifteen years of miscarriage, stillbirth, and infertility for nothing.”  I believe with all my heart, God is calling me to help comfort other women in need.  Couples suffer silently with miscarriage and infertility.  Not many want to discuss it.  People are embarrassed by it.  Stillbirth can’t be hidden, yet not many know how to deal with the pain from it.  The reason I titled my book, Nothing to Hold but Hope, is because there was a horrific day I walked out of a hospital after giving birth to a five-pound, eight-ounce beautiful baby girl, but she didn’t come home with me.  I had no baby to hold; I only had hope.  My hope is Jesus.  Without Him, I’m not sure I could have survived.

Blogging some of my book here and there is not the same as reading it as a whole, but I hope what I have to say in the meantime will give you some comfort.  I’m praying for you today.  I’m praying the name of your hope will be Jesus, and that you choose to hold Him close.
