The Sweet Tide of Life

The Tide

As suddenly as the tide rushes in, it also ebbs
the minute it had carried all that we hoped ashore, it took everything out to sea again

Shocked, unbelief, questions reeled together in a pressing hope for another miracle
We call the name of Jesus, the name of hope

As tiny as it was
The fluttering of a little 6-wks heartbeat we last saw
A sprit formed, a precious being created
A little darling barely 2 wks craved of our attention
Our senses she already gripped

Nevertheless, God had meant for us to let her go
We held on to what God has in store for us
and also what he has in store for her
We knew him to be loving
We knew him to be in control

That morning I saw in my dream
a girl of about 7 or 8 years of age
Standing in the midst of a rising tide, ocean wide
She was about to drown while I cry out “No!”
And again the dream returned
exactly the same that morning
I realized later it was actually God
telling me ahead what the doctor will see
in only a few hours away
it was awesome

King of the Tide

The room was pink
As if the play on words “pink of health!” fitted the occasion
It was assuring, carers had beautiful hearts
Everything else was quiet in the room
except for palpitations of my heart
Why I’ve never had an op done let alone a D&C!

While thirst and mild hunger sets in
A familiar voice prepared me ahead that morning
“As in a dry and weary land where there is no water. I have looked upon you, the sanctuary, beholding your power and glory. Because your steadfast love is better than life, my lips will praise you.” Psalm 63

“Still” was an amazing song that kept me steady and gave me strength.
It was a song I sang over and over. God is powerful.
When the oceans rise and thunders roar
I will soar with you above the storm
Father you are King over the flood
I will be still, know you are God…

The last thing I heard was “Breathe slowly … go to sleep”
And before I know it, it was done! It was so easy, I couldn’t believe it!
Suddenly I felt a sense of loss and a burst of tears came rushing in
I buried myself in my husband’s chest. I had a blast releasing the dam, it was so good after that.

A wave of peace and new hope swept over us
God was with us all the time
Life is a series of rough sea
Swimming in unfamiliar sea without Jesus would have meant missing his grace entirely

Though each tide sure was new to us
We also knew we walked with a powerful God that he is
Each pregnancy is uniquely filled with the grace of God
How delicate, how precious each life truly is in his eyes
He is in control, he is the King of tide!
Special thanks to friends who offered their invaluable encouragements, advises and love.

Also to friends who shared our excitement for the news of our first time pregnancy,
We’ll do the excitement all over again! This time it was merely a rehearsal!
Stay tuned! :)

With God’s grace & love
David & Sharon
