I’m sure you’ve all seen the viral video over the past few days where a husband surprises his wife by telling her she’s pregnant. It’s pretty cute and it may be one of the most viewed pregnancy videos out there with over 9 million people watching it.

Days later they had the devastating news that their baby had gone to be with the Lord.

They could have decided to shut out the world, to hide away and deal with their grief privately. Instead they chose to give God glory and to share their loss on their vlog.

How amazing that they have chosen to use such a personal and heartbreaking experience to be an example to others, to be a light in the world.

My prayer is that this will encourage others to share their personal heartache.

For miscarriage to no longer be something  we don’t talk about, but something we walk through together, with love and support.

Let this be an encouragement to those who are struggling, be courageous and share your lives! Live a life that shows God’s grace in the absence of our perfection. Let people journey with you through the highs and the lows.

‘  The Lord is at hand; do not be anxious about anything, but in everything by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known to God.  And the peace of God, which surpasses all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus.’

– Philippians 4 v6-7
