Finding peace after loss can be very difficult especially when that loss is a child. I searched and searched through the Bible for comfort and for peace. I found Bible verses for miscarriage and encouragement. These few miscarriage Bible verses that I’m going to discuss personally helped me through my miscarriage but there are plenty more in the Bible to explore.

Here’s My Story
Almost two years to the date I experienced my second pregnancy and didn’t know I need bible verses for the miscarriage to get me through the next few months. My first pregnancy ended in a chemical loss the month beforehand.
That was a very traumatic month for me as I learned that I was newly pregnant for the first time I also received a call from my mother who told me that my 16-year-old cousin had committed suicide.
So my grief was twofold. Grieving the loss of a family member and then also grieving the loss of a potential pregnancy (and not wanting to share the news)
We had been trying for almost a year, no it was actually a year that we had been trying to conceive and finally we saw the two lines.
The chemical, yes, was devastating but we decided to try again the next month.
We actually had success and that takes us to my second pregnancy. A pregnancy that also ended in loss. But this was a different kind of loss.
As with all pregnancies and all miscarriages, every one of them is different.
We actually got to our first ultrasound at 6 weeks pregnant and was told there was only a yolk sac but because I had had a chemical prior to this new pregnancy the doctor thought my days and dates were probably off (even though I tracked ovulation) and that it was too early to tell.
We Weren’t Expecting This…
They decided (and I say they as in my doctor and OB at the time) it would be best if we wait for a couple of weeks and have another ultrasound. My HCG was constantly rising and so I thought there’s got to be a baby in there.
A couple of weeks later I was diagnosed with a blighted ovum. A pregnancy with no fetus.
I was… hesitant to accept the news and the diagnosis. Some could say I was in denial.
But through it all my trust was in the Lord. I trusted God to get me through and I trusted His will for my life. Trusted that because He put in my heart the desire to become a mother that it would come to pass.
It Lasted So Long
Sharing was a coping mechanism for me especially during this miscarriage because technically without a fetus I’ve been miscarrying since the beginning of the pregnancy.
We chose not to proceed with a D&C procedure or the pill and let nature and God take its course. Then I started to miscarry and bleed shortly before what would have been the second trimester.
I bled for a total of 45 days.
I ended up taking a pill to help the process a couple of weeks prior to the miscarriage ending because it was taking so long.
Here’s a journal entry from miscarriage day 44:
“June 7, 2018 – Exodus 24
The Lord Called Moses up to Mount Sinai where Moses waited 6 days. On the 7th day the Lord Called Moses to the cloud resting at the top of the mountain. He remained with the Lord 40 days and 40 nights.
Today I had my labs drawn and I am bleeding red but light and God is still good! Through these 40+ days he has shown me his glory and my purpose to spread his truth. I am so grateful for this process of climbing up the mountain, no matter how hard it is because that just puts me one level closer to God.”
I found out I was pregnant for the second time ever on February 23, 2018. My second baby went to heaven that year as well. From February to June I dived deep with the Lord. A month after (July) I conceived my rainbow baby Ava.
His Word is what kept me going through all those days through all those months. His Word still keeps me going and I hope I can encourage you today through some of the scriptures He shared with me during my journey.
Bible verses for miscarriage
1. Abraham never wavered in believing God’s promise. In fact, his faith grew stronger, and in this he brought glory to God -Romans 4:20 NLT
Humans waiver and flip flop but God is a constant God. Stay encouraged through the battle and continue to give honor and glory to God.
2. The generous will prosper; those who refresh others will themselves be refreshed. -Proverbs 11:25 NLT.
On this day the Lord dropped the word “refresh” into my spirit. Even though it feels like something is being constantly taken from us, we need to be generous in spirit and refresh others with the individual gifts that God has given us.
3. And the Holy Spirit helps us in our weakness. For example, we don’t know what God wants us to pray for. But the Holy Spirit prays for us with groanings that cannot be expressed in words. Romans 8:26 NLT.
It’s such a good thing to have the Holy Spirit because when you’re experiencing loss it’s so hard to pray. Especially when you’re trying to pray for yourself. Let the Holy Spirit do it for you sis.
4. In all of this, Job did not sin by blaming God. Job 1:22 NLT.
In the book of Job, he had everything. Multiple animals, a huge family but it was all taken from him and yet he did not blame God. Sis I know it can be easy to cast blame for what happens especially in a miscarriage but all things work together for the good of those who love God and are called according to His purpose and will for your life.
5. Each time he said, “My grace is all you need. My power works best in weakness.” So now I am glad to boast about my weaknesses, so that the power of Christ can work through me. 2 Corinthians 12:9 NLT.
He gives power to the weak and strength to the powerless. Those who trust in the Lord will find new strength. Another great scripture. If we were strong all the time we wouldn’t know what it would feel like to be weak and grow in strength. You are a TTC Warrior and a mother who is strong beyond her knowledge.
6. Work willingly at whatever you do, as though you were working for the Lord rather than for people. Colossians 3:23 NLT.
Your everyday life is your ministry. Imagine if Jesus said this is too hard. Whatever he went through, whatever you’re going through currently, you can get through it as long as you work hard for the Lord.
7. For God called you to do good, even if it means suffering, just as Christ suffered for you. He is your example, and you must follow in his steps. 1 Peter 2:21 NLT.
God has placed certain people in your life to grow your faith. He’s also placed you in certain situations in order to grow your faith as well. Jesus never retaliated or threatened or planned revenge on the things that he went through or the people that did him wrong. He went to the Father instead.
8. The Word gave life to everything that was created, and his life brought light to everyone. John 1:4 NLT.
Do you know who you are? God knows. Sis, you were built by God and in order to understand your purpose you have to let God know your heart. Tell him you love him, he deserves the praise! Jesus is not only our life but our light.
9. And do not be conformed to this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind, that you may prove what is that good and acceptable and perfect will of God. Romans 12:2 NKJV.
Renew your mind in the word daily! We are new creatures and all things are made new. God will see you through this because he knows every step, every tear, and every blood stain. He knows what His perfect will for you is.
I pray that this blog post has blessed you and I would love to hear in the comments below some of the scriptures that got you through your loss.
Blessings and baby dust sis!
