I was privileged to be in Indiana for the United Tour last Sunday, and there were so many awesome nuggets I came home with! The one that seems to keep reappearing to me in devotionals and such actually came from MWS: he told of when he was younger and shaving, and as he looked in the mirror his knees actually buckled with the sudden inner knowledge that God loves him unconditionally, that no matter what he did or did not do, God loves him and will always love him. Even when we are off track, God is there just waiting and loving us. (MWS was much more eloquent when he told this!)

Your blog today reminded me of that nugget: here is God, waiting to hold you and comfort you in your loss, just waiting for you to need Him! And this is true of every day's issues, big and small.

I know your sadness, I miscarried my second child, and am still amazed at the emotions that come to the surface when someone asks me about that experience, that child. I am praying for your healing, both emotional and physical. God bless.


I have experienced this kind of deliverance before, such amazing feeling even many years down the road.


How do you get past this, though, when you cry out to God and nothing seems to change?
I try to get close and feel so distant. It's hard to understand when you've desired your own family all of your life. I praise Him too. I understand what Joni is saying too. I have tried to surrender all too. In a lot of ways, I just feel stuck.


Hi Kerry. I have followed your blog for some time now and am amazed at how it speaks right to me, what I'm going through, spiritually experiencing, etc. This post touched me because for years I was fearful of never having another new born baby to love and hold. We had one child but over four years we lost seven babies to early term miscarriages or ectopic pregnancies. God shaped me through each loss and I grew a deeper understanding of Him and his workings in and through me. (although the heartache is unbearable at the time) I can say God brought me through each one, and literally blessed us twice over...adopting a little girl from China and then miraculously having another biological child 13 months later. Thank you for sharing what God is teaching you. I realize I still have pain lurking in the reccesses of my heart from the loss of our other children.

Thank you so much for your transparency. I appreciate how you share your heart and thoughts.

That God has brought you to a new place is evident even to a reader. As Ive "met and come to know you" in this blog, I am confident that you will be searching out, digging though, keeping antennae up for what for and why. May I make an initial suggestion?......Christ in you.

Simply beautiful Kerry. This is a quote that has meant much to me in recent days:
"And I saw the river over which every soul must pass to reach the kingdom of heaven and the name of that river was suffering; and I saw a boat which carries souls across the river and the name of that boat was love". St. John of the Cross
