Since my miscarriage, I have known other people who have miscarried. It is so hard to know what to say, even though I have gone through some of the same things. I pray that they know they are not alone, and that things happen for reason. God knows what He is doing.
When we experience trying times in our lives, it strengthens us. I am so grateful for Zelda. I waited for her for so long. I pray that no one has to go through what I did, but I know that that is unrealistic. I hope I can help other women who grieving about their miscarriage. I know that I cannot take the pain away, but at least they will know they are not alone.
You would think I had learned this lesson. You would think when life comes at me, I would be able see that God was still in control. I still try to solve things myself and only turn to God when I fail. This is not how things should be.
I have read the story in the Bible about how Moses led the Israelites out of Egypt and out of slavery. They traveled for forty years before they could enter the Promised Land. In the Forty years, God provided for them. They wore the same sandals for forty years, and God sent food for them in the form of manna that fell from the sky. Even though God provided all of these things for them, they became frustrated and even talked about going back to Egypt and into slavery. When I read this story, I couldn’t believe they could not see how God was helping them, but then I look at my life and see the same things.
My cousin has always said, “I believe God only gives us what we can handle.”
I had heard this before but I didn’t know where it came from. I tried to think of a place in the Bible where that is said but I couldn’t find it. Then Devin told me that the Bible doesn’t say it in so many words, but it is the story of David and Goliath. With God’s help, we can do extraordinary things. No one expected David to beat Goliath but with God’s help, he did. Therefore, it isn’t that God only gives us what we can handle. It is that we can do anything with God’s help. “I can do all things in him who strengthens me.” Philippians 4:13.
