I try to share this post a couple of times each year because it discusses a question many bereaved parents desperately want to answer: Did God take my child?
These are my thoughts-ones I believe are backed by Scripture and align with what I know personally about God’s character.
They are the result of many months of wrestling. I offer them in hopes they will help another heart.❤ Melanie
This is a question that comes up all the time in bereaved parents’ groups: Did God take my child?
Trust me, I’ve asked it myself.
How you answer this question can mean the difference between giving up or going on, between turning away or trusting.
So this is MY answer. The one I’ve worked out through study, prayer and many, many tears. You may disagree. That’s just fine. I only offer it because it might be helpful to some struggling and sorrowful soul.

One thought on “How I Answer The Question: Did God Take My Child?”
I believe that our children are gifts from God. That sometimes those gifts are temporary some not. I also believe that God has a plan and reason for why he does the things he does. That He has a plan and purpose for us all. I also have to trust Him and believe He wanted my son back for a special plan for him. I have to trust , believe and have faith in God. For He knows our sorrows and collects our tears.
