Miscarriage: He gives and He takes away . . .



Faster than the fireweed comes and goes, Yahweh gave and then took away the little one in my womb.  I was so excited to find out that I was pregnant with our fourth about three weeks ago.  I dreamed that he was another boy!   This past weekend, I miscarried.  Sad, so very sad . . . but I have felt the Father’s comfort through the sadness in a powerful way.  Not one tear fell from my eyes that He didn’t see, there was not one sad thought that He didn’t know, and not one moment of surprise for Him in what happened.  He saw, He knew, He felt, and He carried me through.   Now I see all the more how close He really is and how blessed I really am.  How can I not praise Him with all that He has blessed me with . . . a loving husband who has been thoughtful beyond words, three sweet boys that keep me smiling, a physically painless miscarriage (didn’t even know that was possible), family that has lifted me up in prayer . . . so praises to the Giver of life, to the One who gave and took away our little one only to take him to the best place he could ever be, in His loving arms.  We have a little treasure up in Heaven now.  Yahweh is good, all the time . . . even when He takes away.

  1. Dear friend. I too have felt the loss of a baby (six to be exact) and the pain is intense but you are so right when you say the comfort of the Lord comes upon you.

    I will be praying. Do you mind if I put you on my blog prayer list? If you want to check it out the address is relevantlifemanual.blogspot.com

    Prayers and Blessings,

    • Hello Jodi,

      Thank you so much for sharing your heart and praying for me even though we don’t know each other. I would be so blessed if you put me on your blog prayer list. The nurse I saw for the miscarriage feels that it was probably due to my being sick (been sick for about a month and a half now due to mold/allergy issues where we live), so I would so much appreciate prayer for healing. Thanks again for your thoughts and prayers.

      Blessings, Carrie

  2. It is a comfort to know the Lord is in control, whether He gives or whether He takes, blessed be the name of the Lord. Praise God for a loving family, for raising you up in prayer~

  6. Carrie,
    This is Jyl Fearn, Korene’s sister. I just read about your recent loss. My heart is pained, and I am also blessed by your attitude and reliance on God during this hardship. You are an amazing woman of God! What a sweet and gentle spirit of peace you have. May God’s love continue to hold you and work in you and your family! I just subscribed, so I look forward to learning about homesteading from you (:
    With Love,
    Jyl ❤

  7. My heart is broken for you…24 years ago we lost our 1st precious daughter at 3 months to SIDS & then I had 2 miscarriages between her & our next 2 darling daughters; that the Lord so graciously allowed us to keep. (Now 22 & almost 19.) We would have loved to have had more, but it wasn’t the Lord’s will. But we praise Him everyday for the darlings that we have here & the 3 awaiting us in Heaven.

    Blessings from Ohio…Kim<
