Finding comfort after a 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 quotes that I’m going to discuss personally helped me through my miscarriage but there are plenty more in the Bible to explore.

My Miscarriage Story

Almost two years to the date I experienced my second pregnancy and didn’t know I need bible verses for 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). So I want to share with you some scriptures and ideas to lean on during this season of your life.

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.  

I didn’t know if it was going to be that same year or the next or 10 years from then but prayed and shared my TTC journey on YouTube.

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.

I prayed and journaled and went to Bible Study at church twice a week to learn more about Him and about His purpose for my life.

Bible Verses and Miscarriage Quotes

“He comforts us in all our troubles so that we can comfort others. When they are troubled, we will be able to give them the same comfort God has given us.”

When we go to God and His word we can find comfort but we shouldn’t stop there. Which is the reason for this post, in my trouble I wanted to make sure others could find His comfort as well.

“Don’t worry about anything; instead, pray about everything. Tell God what you need, and thank him for all he has done. Then you will experience God’s peace, which exceeds anything we can understand. His peace will guard your hearts and minds as you live in Christ Jesus.”

Theres a formula to peace. Subtracting worry and adding prayer, telling God what you need and being grateful through your circumstance. THEN you’ll experience His peace that will guard and protect your heart and mind!

miscarriage quotes bible

“We destroy every proud obstacle that keeps people from knowing God. We capture their rebellious thoughts and teach them to obey Christ.”

It can be so easy to get caught up in the enemy’s lies and what he begins to tell us about who we are and what we’re currently experience. But know this, God tells us that we can capture those negative thoughts. Any thoughts that seek to tear us down and we can make them obey Christ THROUGH HIS WORD!

  • Moving on doesn’t mean letting go

“You will survive and you will find purpose in the chaos. Moving on doesn’t mean letting go.” — Mary VanHaute 

I had 2 miscarriages and maybe you’ve had multiple as well, but that doesn’t mean your not still a mother. It doesn’t mean you wont survive this battle. It doesn’t mean you can’t move on to have more children. And it definitely doesn’t mean you have to let go of who was lost.

Then if my people who are called by my name will humble themselves and pray and seek my face and turn from their wicked ways, I will hear from heaven and will forgive their sins and restore their land.”

A favorite scripture that gives complete directions for me. Humble myself in spiritual heart and physicial position, pray and seek the Lord,  and repent of my sins so that I can hear from the Lord and be restored!

Affirmations and Encouragement for Women Experiencing a Miscarriage

  • Romans 4:20

“Yet he did not waver through unbelief regarding the promise of God, but was strengthened in his faith and gave glory to God”

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.

  • Proverbs 11:25

“A generous person will prosper; whoever refreshes others will be refreshed”.

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.

  • Romans 8:26

“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”

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.

  • Job 1:22

“In all this job did not sin by blaming God”

In the Book of Job, Job had everything. Multiple animals and 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 in our lives, 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.

  • 2 Corinthians 12:9

“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.”

He gives power to the weak and strength to the powerless. Those who trust in the Lord will find new strength! Another great scripture sis. 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 own knowledge.

  • Colossians 3:23

“Work at whatever you do as though you were working for the Lord rather than for people.”

Your everyday life is your ministry sis. Imagine if Jesus said “this is too hard” whenever he went through trials and tribulations. Whatever you’re going through currently you can get through it as long as you work hard for the Lord.

  • 1 Peter 2:21

“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.” 

God has placed certain people in your life to grow your faith. He also placed you in certain situations in order to do the same. Jesus never retaliated, threatened, or planned revenge on the things that he went through or the people that did him wrong. Instead, He went to the Father.

  • Romans 12:2

“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.”

Renew your mind in the word daily. We are new creatures and all things are made new in us. God will see you through this because He knows every tear and every blood-stain. He knows what His perfect will for you is sis.

I pray you found encouragement in this post and insight into how the word of God can bring comfort in any situation.
