Dear brothers and sisters,
I believe that everyone one of us who was a seed in our mother's womb was also given a soul by God's design, amen?
Back in 1985 Hazel was pregnant with our child. She was a beautiful mother expecting and did not have any complications, morning sickness, health issues for a young 27 year old. The only thing I remember is she would cry for no reason and could not stand being near nectarines. lol!
Then in October 1985 she went to the hospital for her sonogram and there was no heart beat. We lost our baby at 6 months in her womb and they had to admit Hazel immediately and induce the labor. We were married only 6 months.
There were particles in the womb that wrapped around lil Bob's left wrist and left ankle cutting off circulation. The doctor said this was rare, only 1 in a thousand cases. We never had children after that. We love children but have no regrets.
I do remember that we prayed during Hazel's pregnancy to our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ for He is the way to our Father, on behalf of our baby. I believe God did honor our prayers. We were committed to bringing lil Bob up in a Godly home, first priority being God. 20 years later our baby's death brought us closer together. His loss ministered to us. We grew in our walk with Jesus. And, what God put in our hearts is that our baby is with Him. I believe this with all my heart. And one day we will see him. I have all the FAITH in God that we will.
What I want to ask those of you who may have experienced a loss of your child at infancy, do you feel that your baby is saved?
Please read and meditate Ephesians 2:4-10, But because of His great LOVE for us, God, who is rich in mercy, made us alive with Christ even when we were dead in transgressions - it is by GRACE you have been saved. And God raised us up with Christ and seated us with Him in the heavenly realms in Christ Jesus, in order that in the coming ages He might show the incomparable riches of His GRACE, expressed in his kindness to us in Christ Jesus. For it is by GRACE that you have been saved, through FAITH - and this not from yourselves, it is the GIFT of God - not by works, so that no one can boast. For we are God's WORKMANSHIP, created in Christ Jesus to do good works, which God prepared in advance for us to do.
Please share as I have shared with you, my family at Talk Jesus. I hope for you parents who lost your baby at infancy will be encouraged by this.
We have moved on but lil Bob will always be in our hearts till the day of eternity when we see our son again! All the joy, glory, and honor goes to our heavenly Father!
Your servant in Christ Jesus.
