Hi friends, the next few blog posts are really from the heart!!
As you may know, last week I lost my third baby, Blaise Mercy McGuckin, to miscarriage.
While recovering I’ve been forced to physically slow down, mentally to think and pray more. Here are some of my thoughts.♥️
What is given cannot be taken.
A beautiful blogger I follow on instagram named Kristine (@lovekristinenicole) recently posted on a story that before her husband passed away from cancer she had offered him up to God. That way her beloved husband could not be taken from her, because he was already given fully to God!
Reading this struck me so deeply. For some reason I came across that message over and over before I lost my baby. So on the day I went for my ultrasound and that little heartbeat had suddenly stopped, all I could do through my tears was to offer up my tiny one to God.
Friends, this was so powerful. Through the broken pieces of my heart I was able to begin healing by offering what I loved (and WANTED) most to my loving heavenly Father. To give my tiny Blaise back to His Creator, the Creator of all things.
I mean in reality don’t we all already belong to Him? But how beautiful to not only acknowledge that truth but to willingly give what we love most to Him. This way, nothing can be taken from us, and it makes it all the sweeter when we wrap our arms around our children in heaven. And I truly believe that our “time” is definitely not God’s time – so if you have lost someone and are still hurting, give this prayer a try. Freedom comes with it. “Father, I give you _______. I offer him/her to you and I thank you for their beautiful life.”
