Are You a Miscarriage Mom? Here's 5 Things God Wants You to Know
Have you experienced a miscarriage? If so, you are not alone. I have experienced losing a baby four times within an 18 year period, until I FINALLY gave birth to a beautiful, healthy, and vibrant baby girl.
You may be feeling depressed right now, but I want to encourage you. Your life is about to change for the better.
The following are five things I feel that God wants you to know. I believe that everything happens for a reason and you aren't reading this article by mistake ...it is meant to be. Think of it as a divine moment.
1. Name your unborn child.
Your child is not dead. He or she is alive in Heaven. One day, when you go to Heaven (if you have received Salvation) you will meet him/her face-to-face.
When a baby passes away due to miscarriage, the baby’s soul goes straight back to Heaven, where God lives, instantly.
Every living human has a soul, including unborn babies. Unborn babies do not need salvation to enter ‘back’ into Heaven. The same thing applies to small children when they die.
Consider yourself a mom! The angels in Heaven are watching your miscarried baby. He or she is ALIVE and well. In fact, your relatives who live in Heaven are with your unborn child.
From the moment God knitted your baby into your your womb, he/she became a living human being with a soul. That's life baby!
2. It's NOT your fault.
Your miscarriage is not a punishment from God. Unfortunately, there are some people who are bold enough to tell a miscarriage mom that God is using her loss as punishment. That's not true - that is a bold-faced lie.
It is very dangerous for a person to say that God is punishing someone with a miscarriage when He is not. Trust me I know. I have experienced a situation where a person (a minister) who told me it was my fault because I didn't pray enough.
I was so distraught. I almost believed the lie. Apparently, God was not satisfied. He revealed that it wasn't my fault. He wants me to tell you that it is not your fault as well.
God is not pacing back and forth on His great big thrown angry with you. He understands your pain and He loves you.
But, why did this happen to you? Why did He bless you to get pregnant and take the baby away from your womb? I don't have the answer for those questions. One day, in Heaven, He will reveal the answers to you. There is one thing I do know for sure, it is not your fault.
3. Journal your thoughts to the Lord.
Get a notebook or use your phone/tablet and write a letter to God. Express your feelings to Him. Then read what you have written out loud. Find a quiet place where you won't be interrupted (car, park, beach, at home, etc).
When you write, focus on the one you are writing to ...the Lord. Listen and capture your thoughts. God speaks to us in many ways, and speaking through our thoughts is one way. When we write, He speaks to us. Habakkuk 2:1-2 reads:
"I will stand upon my watch, and set me upon the tower, and will watch to see what he will say unto me, and what I shall answer when I am reproved. And, the Lord answered me, and said, Write the vision, and make it plain upon tables, that he may run that readeth it."
I find that when I journal and write to God, I always feel better emotionally. Just like daily prayer, journaling is like therapy for the soul, especially when you're struggling to give birth.
4. Don't give up hope! Prepare your body for your next child.
Strengthen your body and mind to receive your blessing. Prepare with the expectation that you will someday get pregnant. People often preach that there is no guarantee in life. True, but faith produces miracles - not doubt and unbelief.
Exercise and eat healthier. Start juicing fresh fruits and vegetables and eat a healthy plant-based diet. Or, add more raw fruits and vegetables to your daily diet. Regular exercise and a plant-based may help women who suffer with fertility problems, according to health experts.
There are several success stories about infertile couples who have been able to conceive a child after switching to a whole-food, nutrient-dense, and plant-based diet.
In the United States, 7.3 million women have struggled to become pregnant. Approximately, in 10-17 of couples have experienced infertility problems, according to Dr. Joel Fuhrman, a fertility expert.
He claims that people who eat a healthy, plant-based diet helps the performance of every system, organ and cell within our bodies.
One step further, eating healthy and exercise also helps eliminate toxins within the body that can cause fertility. For example, when a woman consumes foods that are filled with pesticides or GMO foods, her body will contain toxins, especially if she's been exposed to these types of foods for a long period of time.
Juicing and adding raw fruits and vegetables to your daily diet can help detoxify and alkalize the body. These healing foods are not only good for people trying to conceive, it is good for those who are experiencing a high-risk pregnancy.
I notice that when I changed my diet, that's when I got pregnant. Eating a healthy, plant-based diet during my high-risk pregnancy was beneficial. When you combine healthy eating, juicing raw fruits and vegetables, and Faith, positive things happen. I am a living witness.
Exercising is the perfect time to draw closer to the Lord. I received one of my greatest breakthroughs in life during my exercise time. I find that going outside by the ocean or a park is the perfect setting to talk to God because it's so peaceful and quiet.
I like to listen to worship music and upbeat instrumental music when I workout. After exercising, I feel so energetic and pumped about life.
5. Have patience.
You probably already know what I'm about to say because it is a popular cliche. God's time is not our time. Trust me, when God blessses you with a baby, your quiet days and nights will come to a screeching halt. You will look back in time and remember the days before you had your baby and remember when you used to sleep without interruption!
You will remember how you used to plan to go out on a Saturday with family and friends or spend alone time with yourself. But, when you have a child, you may have to put your plans for the day on hold because you can't find a babysitter at the last minute or your baby isn't feeling well. As you can see, I’m living the mommy life.
Just have patience, it will happen. Enjoy the life you are living now because your life is going to completely change when you give birth to your blessing. Trust me, I'm a living witness!
