Please Pray...

http://www.desiringgod.org/Blog/829/

My heart is broken for a family that I have never met. Surely carrying life in my womb makes this loss even harder to imagine but it is a sober and constant reminder that God is the author.

Piper writes these words in closing.

This seems so preventable. By God and by man. Yes. So easy. But neither man nor God prevented this. Man, because he did not know it was happening. God, because he has his wise and loving reasons that we wait to learn with tears and trust.

That breaks my heart! I will pray for them in these next few hard days.

I am at a loss.
I don't think there is any greater earthly pain than to lose a child and I pray that I never find out.

In times when we can not trace His hand, we must trust His heart.
