Sprinkle Of Encouragement To The Mother Who Has Lost A Child

I have often read or heard this quote-"no parent should bury a child." Yet, it does happen, and it has happened to you and me. Your child will always remain a part of you. I understand how much you miss your child, and I know you long for them to be here with you. We may never understand this side of heaven why we lost our child. When we are unable to understand, the Bible gives us this encouragement:
"Trust in the LORD with all your heart, And do not lean on your own understanding. In all your ways acknowledge Him, And He will make your paths straight."  Proverbs 3:5-6 (NASB)
At the age of 18 years old, my son, Joe, died tragically in 2008; there is not a day that goes by without me thinking of him in one shape, form, or another. In the days and months following his death, something inside of me wanted to remember everything I could about him. So, I would take out a journal and write anything that would come to my mind. It helped to get the thoughts that were on my mind onto paper. I still write about him here on my blog. If you would like to read some of my posts, I have included the links below:

                                                   ~I want to offer this suggestion~
Find a pretty journal and begin writing the thoughts that come to your mind about your child. If you do not feel like writing, perhaps find a trusted friend or therapist with whom you would feel comfortable sharing your thoughts. Maybe they would be willing to write them out for you.
One other idea would be to record your thoughts on your phone's voice memo.

Dear Heavenly Father,
I bring to You, Father, the mother, reading this post. She misses her child so very much, and she longs to have her child here with her. Bring her comfort as only You can. Help her trust in the LORD with all
her heart. With her faith in the LORD,  please help make her paths straight.
Please bring trusted friends and or a therapist that can help her along the way. 
In Jesus' name, 

I'm here to help you; feel free to contact me.
My contact form is on the sidebar of this blog.

With love,
