I lost my daughter when I was eight months and two weeks along. I just wonder if it was a punishment or a test. Why would God allow this?

Why does God allow miscarriages? I don't know...but here is what I do know: miscarriages happen for any number of reasons. Many years ago I lost a child. Lamentations 3:33, "For He does not afflict willingly, nor grieve the children of men." Isaiah 55:8, "For my thoughts are not your thoughts, nor are My ways your ways." James 1:2, "My brethren, count it all joy when you fall into various trials..." Psalm 18:6, "In my distress I called upon the Lord, and cried out to my God; He heard my voice from His temple...." He reminded me: Romans 8:28, "...Know that all things work together for good to those who love God, to those who are called according to His purpose." John 14:27, "Peace I leave with you, My peace I give to you; not as the world gives do I give to you. Let not your heart be troubled, neither let it be afraid." Just know that nothing loved is ever lost! We may be separated for a time. 2 Samuel 12:21-23 - David had just lost his infant son. He was asked, when the boy was alive (about 8 days) you wept and fasted! But now he is gone you are up and eating? "And he (David) said, 'while the child was alive, I fasted and wept; for I said 'Who can tell me whether the Lord will be gracious to me that the child may live?' But now he is dead; why should I fast? Can I bring him back again? I shall go to Him but he shall not return to me." I know one day, one day I will see my baby! For now he is in the Best Hands! I pray you find peace in your heart. Know that your little girl lives in your heart as she has lived in your body these past months.
