A young couple began attending a midwest church. They had been saved ony about 8 months when they announced that they needed prayer; they had experienced several miscarriages and had just discovered they were with child again.

The congregation responded; they had the most prayed for baby in the church.

After the child’s birth alive, they realized their fears when their child died hours after birth. Their pastor joined them, as well as their unsaved family members. After a time of sorrow, the attending physician asked if they would like to hold their baby one last time. They said yes. Instead of cursing God, questioning Him, or complaining, they took their child (named Mindy), placed it in the arms of their unsaved parents, and said, "If you don’t trust Christ, you’ll never see Mindy again. We’ll be spending eternity with her in heaven."

In following weeks, her family came to church and responded to the gospel message.

If she had responded in bitterness, who knows what happens next. She used the joy of the Lord that passes understanding,and saw her family saved.

We too need to discover and use the joy of our salvation.
