We cannot be ready for an unexpected event, for more than we would like. From the moment we are born and we open our eyes, unexpected things begin to happen in our lives. There are also things that we have control over them. But what about the things that we have no control of?

There are losses that we can prevent, some we can not. I lived the experience of an unexpected loss. I was not prepared for that. It had not crossed my mind of losing a pregnancy. Not only losing one pregnancy, but two. In my heart there was always the desire to have a family. To have children. But I never imagined how difficult it would be for me to have the experience of losing something I wanted to have holding in my arms.

After three months of marriage, I became pregnant and for unknown reasons I lost my pregnancy. It was a strong, unexpected and heartbreaking lost, not only for me but also for my husband. The sadness was so deep that we could not find comfort.

I spent most of my time crying and wanting to be alone. We were going through a process not expected in our lives. But it was happening. After two years, I became pregnant and lost it again. At that time, I could not understand why it was happening. I wondered “is it possible that I can get out of this deep sadness and smile again?

I hid in my room just like Hannah stood before the presence of God. I cried and I told God ” I want to smile.”

…I am a woman of a sorrowful spirit. I have drunk neither wine nor strong drink, but I was pouring out my soul before the Lord. I Samuel 1:15

After several days, I began to search the Word of God and God began to speak through it. I began to receive what my heart and my soul needed. That breath of life, that word of encouragement and comfort. That ray of light amid a gray sky.

Then I started to get up every day in the morning to sit and read the Word in the midst of my painful process. I began to experience what says the Word of God in Romans,

…all things work together and are [fitting into a plan] for good to and for those who love God. Romans 8:28 (AMP)

I cannot deny that there was times I wanted to cry and I did! Like the scene of Hannah, crying to God for a son. The more I cried out to God and presented my distress before Him, I felt relieved. I was experiencing and living God’s promises like the child I am for Him.

That same promises are there for you. If you are going through a moment of pain, sadness and sorrow. God’s comfort goes over our pain. It relieves our pain and moves us to His presence. We just have to remove the lock on the door of our heart and allow Him to comfort us.

In the loss that evokes in us pain and sadness, God wants us to give {to render} to Him that pain and sadness. It’s like an exchange! You give Him your pain and He returns to you with something much better: comfort.

I encourage you today, in the middle of the process you may be in, to turn your heart to God {just like Hannah did} and let Him comfort you! He as a plan for everything! God for sure, will turn your sadness into dancing!

We are assured and know that [God being a partner in their labor] all thinks work together and are [fitting into a plan] for good to and for those who love God and are called according to [His] design and purpose. Romans 8:28 (AMP)
