Behold, as the eyes of servants
look to the hand of their master,
as the eyes of a maidservant
to the hand of her mistress,
so our eyes look to the LORD our God,
till He has mercy upon us.
Please beseech the Lord with us for His grace and mercy, and look to Him with us in our time of need.
We found out that our dear little Baby Six has joined our babies in heaven.
My soul melts away for sorrow;
strengthen me according to Your word!
Please pray for the Lord to strengthen us, even in the midst of overwhelming sorrow.
Please rejoice with us in this bittersweet time that God’s covenantal promises are for us and for our children, and that we do not grieve as those who have no hope. We will meet our children in the heavenly gates someday! How my heart longs for that moment. I am so eager to worship alongside these five little redheads who my arms so ache to hold.
Please, also, pray that my body would realize that the baby has died, so that I do not continue with pregnancy symptoms and growth, and would not need medical intervention. If there is one thing that compounds the grief of a bereaved mother, it is when such things become medicalized & sterile.
Once the baby has been delivered (we are praying the Lord mercifully allows this sooner than later), I will update with the baby’s name and birthdate and Bible verses.
Thank you, and peace be with you.
O my God, incline Your ear and hear.
Open your eyes and see our desolations…
For we do not present our pleas before You because of our righteousness,
but because of Your great mercy.
