Finding God in the Depths

Lindsey Bell is joining me today and her story is one that will touch your heart. She knows the pain of losing a child--in fact she has lost several. She shares how the Lord uses our brokenness to bring new hope to our circumstances.
Lindsey shares her story:


After our third and fourth miscarriages in particular, I felt very alone. Almost as if God was no longer with me.  

Because of various Bible verses, I knew He hadn't left me. But I couldn't feel Him anymore. My prayers seemed to fall on closed ears. No matter what I did or how much I prayed, I couldn't get out of the darkness that surrounded me. 

That is, until some of my sisters in Christ began to minister to my broken heart.  

One of them brought over a blanket in memory of the babies I had lost. Another brought chocolate. Others sent cards and messages of hope.  

One by one, as these women ministered to me, I began to realize something: God had never left me. All along, he had been working through the hands and feet of the believers around me. 

At a time when I couldn't find the Lord, He was there...ministering to me through His people. 

That's why I'm so excited about The M.O.M Initiative Conference coming up this summer. It's an opportunity for women all over the country to minister to one another and be the hands and feet of Jesus to each other....

  5. Thanks for your encouragement to Lindsey, Jane. And, for stopping by to share your heart. It is in the depths that we draw near--and there we find Him faithful and true.

  6. Appreciated your open broken heart, Lindsey. While I have had many losses in my life, I in no way know how much pain you have experienced. But I do know the God of all comfort who is attempting to heal your brokenness. He's the same God who is healing mine. Thank you for your post.

  7. Anne, thanks for sharing your heart here too. We each have areas of brokenness that He touches to bring healing. Loss is something Jesus understands. And, healing is what He does best.
