I still have Faith

Although I was taken aback by my baby loss episodes, I came to the understanding that it is not over and God indisputably has my back. Our second child Faith was born premature. I was confident she would survive and so I prayed. When the doctors told us we were losing her, I prayed the more and trusted God for a miracle. Faith however passed away nine hours after birth. Despite the fact my prayer was not answered, I still had Faith in this God I prayed to. I was more resolute in my Christian faith and made up my mind that nothing would stop me loving God. My journey through loss has demystified certain myths I once held and I have now acquired great insight into certain issues people grapple with in the area of loss.

  • God is still God even if things don’t turn out the way I expect
  • ‘Bad’ things surely happens to ‘good’ people
  • God hears me even when it doesn’t feel like it
  • Times of pain and loss reveal where our hearts really lie and what we believe
  • Even when death occurs, it is not the end

 

Faith is physically not here, but I still have her and I am looking forward to the day we will be reunited to part no more. That’s a little incentive for me to maximise my life, make it count, make a difference in the lives of others and make my Faith proud!

  1. Life can be so difficult at times,tryin to conceive can even take forever not to think of a future loss,resolving to praise God no matter what strengthens our faith and gives us inner peace.
