When I went through my miscarriage I had a few thoughts. Well, maybe more than a few. Therefore, I made the decision to dive deep into the Bible to see does the Bible say anything about miscarriage?
Miscarriage and Bleeding
In the bible, any type of bleeding, whether from disease, miscarriage, or even from a menstrual cycle, was required that you, in modern terms, quarantine.
A person going through sickness and disease had to be cast out from their town. They had to be isolated from people and go outside of the city.
Basically, whenever anyone comes into contact with you you would have to scream that you were unclean!
Women had to do that monthly?! How embarrassing. I can only imagine but thank God for grace because similarly in the Old Testament when someone had leprosy or any other types of diseases they were considered unclean as well.
Whoever had leprosy had to dress up like a mourner and anyone who came in contact or near him or her they were then unclean until the next morning.
During TTC and you’re not so patiently waiting for that BFP and then BAM, Aunt flow shows up. Sadness overcomes you and now you’re feeling like the person in that state of leprosy
Just imagine if you have to go around your city yelling that you’re unclean. Not fun at all.
Feeling cast out from everyone else who became pregnant that month or from those who have had successful IVF or IUI. It’s a lot.
Does the Bible Say Anything About Miscarriage?
The bible does have a few scriptures related to miscarriages. Exodus 23:26 states in the amplified version that “No one shall suffer miscarriage or be barren in your land; I will fulfill the number of your days. This verse is actually referring to Israel and how God was going to send an angel to Israel as a promise to Israel that God was going to do all of these things for them.
But of course, we know they were a very disobedient culture. There are many promises from God in the Bible where are the Israelites were under the law as well as for us now that we’re under grace.
Bible Scriptures About Miscarriage
Deuteronomy 31: 8 says the Lord himself goes before you and will be with you!
Many people look at the the middle of the scripture which says he will never leave you nor forsake you you have to think about what comes first. It states the Lord himself goes WITH YOU.
He’s already there so he’s not going to leave you nor forsake you because he is already with you so do not be afraid and do not be discouraged by what you’re going through because the Lord is with you and will not leave.
Jeremiah 29:11 states: For I know the plans I have for you declares the Lord plans to prosper you and not harm you plans to give you a hope and a future.
God knows the plans that he has for you and he’s already put in place what he’s going to do in your life. The book of your life is already written. Your Instagram feed is already full f wonderful content in God’s eyes.
Jeremiah 1:5 Before I formed thee in the belly I knew thee! Before he formed us, his children of God, he knew what he had planned for us. He knows the plans for the baby that will form in YOUR belly.
Where do miscarried babies go?
In regards to my miscarriage experiences, I knew God had to take the baby home early to heaven because the baby just wasn’t going to be ready for this world.
Be ready and prepared for what God’s plans are. God has set you apart to do something spectacular, to do something amazing! More abundantly above all that you can think or ask. He set you apart so you have to live knowing that He is going to direct your path!
