Lately it seems like life has been a whirlwind. This last Friday we celebrated the life of Fletcher. Fletcher is our baby boy that was a stillbirth baby. We had a great event with all of our close friends and family. Everyone that needed to be there to make the event special made it.
Through this loss, we have started “The Fletcher Foundation.” The Fletcher Foundation’s mission is to provide financial and emotional support for anyone that goes through miscarriage or stillbirth. It is an experience I wouldn’t wish on anyone and is the most difficult thing me or my wife has had to go through.
When things are hard we have options. We can let it destroy us or through it we can glorify our creator. Our God is good to us even though our life doesn’t go the way we want it to. It is so easy to have doubts in Jesus when things aren’t going the way that we want them to.
My challenge and prayer for myself as well as the world is that as times seem to be more chaotic and hard, we turn to a God that is passionate, loving, and always forgiving of our sin. God is our constant and he never changes.
Proverbs 3:5-6 “Trust in the Lord with all your heart and lean not on your own understanding; in all your way submit to him, and he will make your paths straight.”
