Grief has remained consistent in my life over the last few years. In 2021, my husband and I miscarried our first baby, Haven; in 2022, we miscarried our second baby, Evie.
In the time since, I’ve been figuring out how to look at grief as a Christian.
I was born in a non-Christian family that was devoutly following a different religion. When I was about to graduate from high school, questions started to form in my mind: “If I hadn't been born into this family, would I still have chosen to believe this?"
Faith is the foundation for building a relationship with God. It is the confidence and hope that God is working even when you cannot see it. Faith means trusting in God’s love and kindness, that He will deliver on His promises, and lead you to what’s best for you. Faith is more than hoping for something better . . . faith is belief with conviction that God is watching over you, and with you in pain and worry. Faith in God strengthens you when you’re down, gives you hope when you’re suffering, and guidance when you’re lost. Read these faith articles about Christians learning to trust God more, and growing in their faith.
