Praise You in this Storm and Prayer Request

   I am posting another Casting Crowns video, with a song that has been in my heart for the past few days, “Praise You in this Storm.”  It just describes so perfectly how I feel right now, and speaks to my heart with what I am going through.  This is a live version at  a concert, where they first explain the inspiration behind the song, which I really enjoyed listening to.

   I also have a prayer request.  Tomorrow we will be going back to the doctor for a second sonogram – to make sure there is no mistake about the baby no longer being alive – before they move ahead with inducing labor.  From there we will schedule a time for me to go to the hospital to be induced, and I will give birth to this tiny 20 week baby. (Technically, they believe the baby passed away around 17.5 weeks gestation, and I am currently at 20.5 weeks).  This is all getting harder, as I realize this baby will be leaving my body, and will truly be gone.   This past week has all been a little hazy, as I have still carried the baby, but it is all becoming more real as this appointment and labor approach.  I would appreciate much prayer in all of this!

Boasting In My Weakness

1 Corinthians 12:9-10


  1. Oh Katie, I am praying. I can’t imagine what you are feeling right now. I pray God will give you peace over this somehow. Please know you’ll be in my thoughts tomorrow.

  2. Katie,

    I found you through Lifesong-Kim. Like Missy, I can’t fathom how you are feeling right now, but I will pray for strength, wisdom and peace to face all that you are facing. God is so good, and I pray that you cling to Him during this time, and are able to praise Him for His perfect plan in your life.

    God Bless You!

  3. Oh, Katie!!!! (Tears for you right now) I am so incredibly sorry about your baby! I have not been feeling well and have not been keeping up with my sweet blogging friends…I will be praying for you! You can count on that, my friend!

    I can not imagine how hard this must be, but we know that God’s merices are new every morning….great is HIS faithfulness to us through whatever we face.

    He will carry you through…I will be praying.

  4. hey friend, I found this quote by Florence whitt Willett

    “I thank you for the bitter things
    They’ve been a friend to grace,
    They’ve driven me from the paths of ease
    To storm the secret place”.
    I pray that the Lord will be your Portion, He will be there to hold your hand. In this darkness He is your light. He has the answers. I pray that he will hide your family under the shadow of his wings. I will be praying for you.

  5. You will continue to have my prayers. I love you my friend.

  6. Katie,
    Another wonderful song, yes we will praise him in the storm, he is where our help comes from!!

    I am praying for you and your family!


  7. I know I do not really know you yet my heart is toward you today. You are in my prayers dear child of God. Know that He is with you. I pray that the peace of God that surpasses all understanding keep you heart and mind through Christ Jesus TODAY! In Jesus Name, Amen.

  8. We will continue to pray for all of you.
