Scriptures and Songs
Leaning on our faith in God
The driving force that has kept us moving forward through our grief is relying on our faith. Prayer and scripture have become a central part of our lives so much more than before Daniel's life. When we got the news that Daniel had a fatal chromosomal mutation, we turned to scripture and our church to guide our path. We believed in God's plan for Daniel and left our son's life in His hands to carry out His will. The scripture and song links below are some of the key ones we leaned on during our pregnancy and continue to lean on through our grief. If you are experiencing a pregnancy with a fatal diagnosis or have lost a child, I encourage you to turn to God to guide your pain and grief. God does not wish to hurt us by giving us crosses to bear, but encourages us to grow closer to him through the trials of this life. Bill and I have found some peace in this time of pain by turning to God for comfort through prayer and reading scripture. I pray you find peace with God for whatever you are facing in your life.
