Friday's Faith

God Saves...In the Womb and In the Tomb


A grieving mother, Sharon Throop related the following:

We lost our only daughter, Wendy, (14) years ago (11/12/96). I was just sent a prose, that sums up so much for so many who walk this road. You may have read it before, but if not, send it on to some of your friends and realize that it sums up the loss of our children.

Feel incomplete? Life in suspense? Can you accept the anxiety of not being in control, while trusting in the "slow work of God, our loving Vine-dresser"?

Can you "give our Lord the benefit of believing that His hand is leading you, and accept the anxiety of feeling yourself in suspense and incomplete"?


God Saves...In the Womb and In the Tomb

God who saved me in the womb,

Saved my baby in the tomb!

"I will help you. Do not fear.

Call on Me, and I'll draw near."

Draw near when TRAUMA o'ertakes,

Shatters peace ~ my spirit quakes!

"Draw near, My baby girl...

Hide in Me like th' oyster's pearl."

Father God, I'm so afraid,

Thrown down by Satan, flat laid...

"Trust Me. Treasures in Darkness

Will meet you in Death's Starkness.

I who carved you in the womb,

Will not leave you in Death's Tomb.

Follow Me and I will lead,

Come to Me; upon Me feed.

Though you're helpless as a babe,

I'm your God, mighty to save!"

Jesus, hold Your little lamb,

I'm Your child, weak as I am...


"I will give you the treasures of darkness,

riches stored in secret places,

so that you may know that I am the LORD,

the God of Israel, who summons you by name.

For the sake of Jacob my servant,

of Israel my chosen...

I am the LORD, and there is no other,

apart from Me there is no God.

I will strengthen you...

so that from the rising of the sun

to the place of its setting

men may know there is none besides Me.

I am the LORD, and there is no other.

~Isaiah 45:3-6 NIV


Faith is the bird that feels the light when the dawn is still dark.

~ Rabindranath Tagore
