Grieving Well with Jesus Series

The following is an excerpt from today's post in the Griveing Well with Jesus series:

Shortly after we buried our baby, Annie, I turned thirty. She was six months old when we discovered she had a massive brain tumor.  She died just four days later. The morning of my birthday I was with a group of women who didn't know our circumstances of the past months, but they somehow found out it was my birthday.  As they were saying all the things
that acquaintances say to one another on birthdays, one older lady reminisced, "Oh those were the best years of my life.  I was knee deep in babies then."

I felt like I had been punched in the gut.  Because for me, the terrifying, overwhelming grief I felt at that point was so new, so raw that I felt like I was drowning.  Along with the death of Annie was the death of what I had imagined my life would be like-- the happy wife and mother of three. It had been so perfect. But instead of baby-proofing the house, I found myself buying depressing cemetery flowers and collecting books on death.

Grieving Through Life's heartaches Series

I'm excited to be a part of this series beginning today called Grieving Through Life's Heartaches with Jesus All the Way.

This series is hosted by Lisa Brown at Me Too Moments for Moms

I hope you'll join us at Lisa's blog as she shares a different woman's story each week. My own story will be included!

Today's post:

Grieving Three Miscarriages
Our third miscarriage devastated me. I denied what was happening, and when reality came, I fell apart. I was hurt and disappointed, but also mad. So mad, I wanted everyone to know it. I wallowed in my pain and refused to be comforted.

I forced myself through the motions of life, but inside a storm was brewing. Un-reconciled pain and anger clung to the walls of my heart like hot tar. Masked behind a church-going, choir singing, Bible teaching Momma, was a soul at odds with God. One of my journal entries read,

“I am a rebellious teenager in the hands of a loving Father. The more I struggle against you, the more tightly you hold on to me. I wish you would loosen your grip just enough so I could slip through your fingers and be gone.”

Had I settled into His arms that day, I would have found peace. Instead...

Have You Ever Felt Not Good Enough?

I hid it for so long. 

I was too embarrassed. 

I'd avoided and dodged. I'd redirected so many times...

I'd shouldered the whispers, the rumors, the judgment of others. 

I was hungry for acceptance, for forgiveness, but if others couldn't forgive me or look past my sordid history, how could God?

And then there it was...the Samaritan woman in the book of John!
