This Spiritual Sunday I hope you don't mind me sharing a prayer/letter I wrote to God last year on Mothers Day. For many years as Mothers Day approached my heart would just ache so much it was crippling. This year I don't have that same ache I believe God heard my cry and is healing my heart. What a wonderful loving Father we have He truly deserves all the glory and praise.
We have a God that answers prayer, thank You Father!!!
Father I need Your help this day, my tears fall as my heart aches for the precious unborn baby I lost 20 years ago. I know she's there with You and I know there is no better place for her to be, but Lord, my arms are empty and I miss her, I miss that I never got to meet her and hold her, to see her smile and watch her grow, or hear her giggles and the words "I love you mummy." Oh how precious those words are, how they must be like music to a mothers heart.
Father please help me to not let this cripple me anymore when my arms feel so empty and when I see other mothers with their children, help me to not feel sorry for myself or envious at what I don't have but to rejoice in the fact that she has never shed a single tear, felt pain or sadness, to know that my little one has only ever known Your love, a pure and beautiful love, a love everlasting, a love unconditional. I want to be thankful that for a moment in time You entrusted a precious life to me the life of my unborn baby, Abigail Grace.
Father God help me to always imagine her there in Your presence, singing Your praises and dancing with angels, basking in the splendor of Your Love. Let this and knowing that when You call me home we will both be together rejoicing and glorifying the awesomeness of our Father God. May this knowledge heal this Mothers heart.
Thank You my Loving Father for hearing my prayer.
1 Praise the LORD.
How good it is to sing praises to our God,
how pleasant and fitting to praise him!
2 The LORD builds up Jerusalem;
he gathers the exiles of Israel.
3 He heals the brokenhearted
and binds up their wounds.
4 He determines the number of the stars
and calls them each by name.
5 Great is our Lord and mighty in power;
his understanding has no limit.
