Life brings hurts that cannot be expressed. These hurts change the way we view our lives, make decisions, and our relationships. I know from my own deep pain that healing only comes from God which is why I want to create this round up of Bible verses for miscarriage. When we are hurt, we need something to hold onto, a glimmer of hope that tells us that this is not the end.
I heard someone say once that “we are not a sum of our past experiences”, but each of those experiences do influence us, change us, and we are never the same after them. The key is to hold onto what is true and stable and never changing.
This again, is why I bring you back to God’s word. God is the only thing in this life that doesn’t change. He is the only one we can truly rely on because no matter what life hands us, He is here with open arms, waiting to comfort us and walk with us through the storm.
Come to Me, all you who labor and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest. Take My yoke upon you and learn from Me, for I am gentle and lowly in heart, and you will find rest for your souls. For My yoke is easy and My burden is light.” (Matthew 11:28-30)
One more note before we get into the meat of this post. What a lot of people don’t understand is that when you lose a child, you not only lose them, but you lose their future as well. You lose the first smile, first step, first word, and all those beautiful firsts we all record, share, and clap over.
So, whether you are reading these Bible verses for miscarriage looking for comfort for yourself, your wife, or your friend, come along with me and let’s explore the beautiful comfort that can only be found in the one who created us.
What to Say to Someone Who has Experienced a Miscarriage
It is difficult to know what to say to someone who has had a miscarriage. It is difficult to know what to say to anyone who is grieving, right? Another reason for this list of scriptures for miscarriage. Let God’s word speak for you.
From experience, I can tell you that there are definitely things NOT to say because I heard them, but the truth is that when you are in that kind of grief, you don’t actually process a lot so keep it simple. “I’m sorry”, “I’m here for you”, “I know you are hurting, please let me do something to help”, “I’m praying for you” (and really do!).
Love to Know has a list of simple expressions. My favorites are:
- “Feelings of emptiness may overwhelm you after the loss of a pregnancy, but know that you are overwhelmed with my love and prayers.”
- “May you find physical and emotional healing in your own time after your pregnancy loss.”
Actions actually speak louder than words. If your friend has other children, offer to babysit so she can rest and grieve. Bring a meal, or a coffee, or take the time to sit and listen.
Grief is something we continue if when we seem as if we are back to normal so remember her with a “thinking of you” text weeks after the loss. Or send one of the following encouraging Bible verses for miscarriage. It will encourage her more than you think.
I have divided these verses and quotes into these three categories. I pray you find what you are looking for.
- Bible verses for miscarriage
- Mother’s Day miscarriage quotes
- Miscarriage quotes for mom
Bible Verses for Miscarriage
Sometimes we have trouble trusting God after a miscarriage and if that is you, I understand your bitterness. When I lost my beautiful 8 year old daughter in an accident I was so angry at God for taking her away from me. I will never forget the day I screamed at Him, pouring out all my pain in such an aggressive way that it surprised even me.
But you know what happened? Nothing. No fire from heaven, no leaving me because I had offended him, no sudden healing.
God continued to stand beside me as I learned to rely on Him more and more. It was not something that happened all at once, it was a quiet faith that grew with each day. Every time the pain was overwhelming, he pushed me to keep going. Each day I couldn’t get out of bed, He brought friends to help me.
When you make the conscious decision to trust God after your miscarriage, you will find comfort and hope.
These scriptures for miscarriage are meant to remind you that you are not alone and bring you peace in the midst of your grief. They are also perfect to write in a card or send in an email if you have a friend who has lost their baby.
And God will wipe away every tear from their eyes; there shall be no more death, nor sorrow, nor crying. There shall be no more pain, for the former things have passed away. (Revelation 21:4)
Yet in all these things we are more than conquerors through Him who loved us. For I am persuaded that neither death nor life, nor angels nor principalities nor powers, nor things present nor things to come, nor height nor depth, nor any other created thing, shall be able to separate us from the love of God which is in Christ Jesus our Lord. (Romans 8:37-39)
The Lord is near to those who have a broken heart,
And saves such as have a contrite spirit. (Psalm 34:18)
You number my wanderings; Put my tears into Your bottle; Are they not in Your book? (Psalm 56:8)
“Fear not, for I have redeemed you; I have called you by your name; You are Mine.When you pass through the waters, I will be with you; And through the rivers, they shall not overflow you. When you walk through the fire, you shall not be burned, Nor shall the flame scorch you. (Isaiah 43:1-2)
But those who wait on the Lord
Shall renew their strength;
They shall mount up with wings like eagles,
They shall run and not be weary,
They shall walk and not faint. (Isaiah 40:31)
“Fear not, for I have redeemed you; I have called you by your name; You are Mine.
When you pass through the waters, I will be with you; And through the rivers, they shall not overflow you.
When you walk through the fire, you shall not be burned, Nor shall the flame scorch you. (Isaiah 43:1-2)
If children, then heirs—heirs of God and joint heirs with Christ, if indeed we suffer with Him, that we may also be glorified together. For I consider that the sufferings of this present time are not worthy to be compared with the glory which shall be revealed in us. (Romans 8:17-8)
To everything there is a season,
A time for every purpose under heaven:
A time to weep, And a time to laugh;
A time to mourn, And a time to dance; (Ecclesiastes 3:1,4)
He will swallow up death forever,
And the Lord God will wipe away tears from all faces. (Isaiah 25:8)
But I do not want you to be ignorant, brethren, concerning those who have fallen asleep, lest you sorrow as others who have no hope. For if we believe that Jesus died and rose again, even so God will bring with Him those who sleep in Jesus. (2 Thessalonians 4:13-14)
In this you greatly rejoice, though now for a little while, if need be, you have been grieved by various trials, that the genuineness of your faith, being much more precious than gold that perishes, though it is tested by fire, may be found to praise, honor, and glory at the revelation of Jesus Christ, whom having not seen you love. Though now you do not see Him, yet believing, you rejoice with joy inexpressible and full of glory, receiving the end of your faith—the salvation of your souls. (1 Peter 1:6-9)
I will love You, O Lord, my strength.
The Lord is my rock and my fortress and my deliverer;
My God, my strength, in whom I will trust;
My shield and the horn of my salvation, my stronghold. (Psalm 18:1-2)
These things I have spoken to you, that in Me you may have peace. In the world you will have tribulation; but be of good cheer, I have overcome the world.” (John 16:33)
How do You Say Happy Mother’s Day after a Miscarriage?
If you are looking for words of encouragement for miscarriage I want to point something out.
The strange thing about loss is that it makes many of us uncomfortable. I don’t know if it is our culture or what, but rather than accepting pain and embracing it, we run away and hide from it. This leaves those who are hurting in a terrible position.
We are afraid to mention the child or afraid to draw attention to the fact that they are gone as if it hurts more when it is brought up.
Let me say this bluntly. We are already hurting. Mentioning our child does not make us hurt worse than we already do. Not mentioning them or avoiding it makes things more difficult.
So, the best thing to say is “thinking of you on Mother’s Day” or “Hugging you this Mother’s Day” or something along those lines that allows you to mention their hurt, acknowledge that they are a mother, and not make it more awkward than it already is.
