I was praying through all that was going on. One of the notes was “God is sovereign over…conception, growth, death, life, birth, and vitality.”
There were times in that 18 month period that all I could come up with in prayer was “I love You; I trust You…” That was usually through some deep emotion and accompanied by tears.
As I review the requests I made of the Lord, all were answered. The family with the miscarriage now has another healthy child. My son’s critically ill wife gave birth to a healthy baby about six weeks later. The Lord took the baby’s mom home 8 months after she gave birth.
I do not pretend to understand why He answers prayer in the way that He does. I do know…
I love Him; I trust Him.
