The Goodness of the Lord!!!!!!!

Psalm 102:13 Thou shalt arise and have mercy upon Zion: for the time to favor her yea the set time is come. Three or four days ago I read this and asked the Lord for his favor and that the time of cleansing my womb would come. I was somewhat hopeful but I did feel like I needed more faith in making the request.

Psalm 27:13 I had fainted, unless I had believed to see the goodness of the Lord in the land of the living. This morning I asked the Lord to allow me to see his goodness in the land of the soon, I was making a desperate request, I needed to see something that was tangible to my eyes, I was desiring the Lord to have mercy upon my womb. My heart was growing so weary of waiting. Yesterday morning there were some signs that something might be happening. A few more signs in the afternoon, but by evening nothing. I was getting hopeful and then I was down again. This morning nothing, and so I talked with the Lord and was pleading with him to have mercy. About mid morning the Lord granted mercy and his goodness was put upon my womb...the miscarriage is now complete, the gestational sack has come out, my womb has been cleansed!!!!!! An undeserved answer to prayer, but it is with great thanksgiving to the Lord for bringing this to pass. Fourteen weeks of waiting since no heartbeat was detected. I wonder if I could be put in the Guiness book of records? Waiting was the only way of peace for me, because I just could not get any other direction, but it was certainly not easy for me. I am ashamed to say that my faith grew very weak and many days I felt like the Lord was not any where near my situation. When our circumstances are smooth I "feel" like the Lord is near, but as the trial grew long, I "felt" like the Lord was so far away. I suppose that is evidence of needed growth in his grace. May the Lord help my heart to simply trust him. So we are rejoicing that the Lord has answered our prayers and yours, as many of you have offered prayers on our behalf. Make sure and tell the Lord thank you for his mercy to the Morris family. We look forward to what the Lord's will, will be for us in the future for fruitfulness.

Thank you so very much for your heartfelt words and prayers concerning this situation. As chapters in our lives come and go I want to learn more to trust and have confidence that he is accomplishing his eternal purposes through all these situations. I testify today that I have seen the "goodness of the Lord" on this day that he has made!!!!

Cindy, I am here... finally. I could and read but haven't been able to post. I couldn't remember my password. Tonight I went through a long process and finally was able to make it all work. I hope I can remember it all.

I am so thankful that the Lord has cleansed your womb. I have been praying for you and all of you~

I hope you do remember me~ it has been a long time since I commented. I followed Joel's Journey last year.... I know this time is so very difficult... I have not walked in your shoes so I can not imagine but I know lots of people are praying for all of you.

My Dad died in July. He was 83. It was very sudden and I miss him so much. I love the poem... it ministered to my heart. Thank you for sharing it.

Also, our anniversary is Nov. 8th. It was 27yrs for us. Our oldest son married on the 11th. I am so blessed.

May God continue to give you strength as you look to Him ...
because of His grace,

I said a special prayer for you last night. I am so happy that you posted this. Often times my faith is weak as well. I understand and I will continue to pray for your family.

Praise the Lord for His is He alone that fills our hearts with the faith we need to trust Him. We are but dust and He knows, remembers, and pitys us as a Father pitys his children.
I love to read the Psalms and read 5 chapters each day every month. I read chapters 100-105 this morning and prayed for you as well. I thanked the Lord right now for his answer to prayer.
What a rough road we often travel, yet the lessons we learn, the growing of our faith, and just the joy of growing more and more in Him...though we wouldn't choose to travel the path He takes us through, Praise Him for He knows best. May your family have a blessed Thanksgiving.

Sorry it's taken so long to post a comment, I do read your blog often. I'm so thankful to hear that your body has finally completed it's task of the miscarriage.

I've been praying for you often lately as I'm sure this time of the year brings back so many memories from last year.

May God richly bless you with His joy.

Love in Christ,
