A Testimony Of What God Has Done For Us!

Most of you are aware that I suffered a miscarriage back in November. It happened very early but having known about the pregnancy ahead of time, I spent a few days grieving over the loss of our baby. I wondered why God allowed it to happen and what He had planned for us. I decided that same week to put it all behind me and begin earnestly praying that God would bless us with another child. Our precious 4 year old Isaac also began praying daily for God to put a new baby in Mommy's tummy. On Sunday December the 7th I was able to minister with the dance team at our church for the first time and one of the requirements for being a part of the worship ministry is to attend the Intercessory prayer time before the service starts. God was definitely present during the prayer time and an elder in the church stood up and said " the Lord just showed me that some you in this room are pregnant with the second generation, that the Lord is raising up an army". I knew that what he said could be manifested in the spiritual (lost souls) and in the physical (pregnant women) so I began to look around as he said that and wondered if God was trying to tell me that he had answered my prayers, that it was me who was pregnant! I tried not to think or get my hopes up the rest of the day but that night I decided to take a pregnancy test. Lo and behold it was positive! I rejoiced and showed the test strip to Daniel. I took new tests every 2-3 days for awhile just to be sure! I guess I could not comprehend that God had heard my cries and had blessed me again so soon! I cannot describe the joy I feel over this pregnancy. I treasure it and appreciate it so much more than I did before. One of my greatest joys was relaying the news to Isaac, the first thing he said was... "My prayer worked! " in a very excited tone of voice. His blue eyes were so bright and he had a look of sheer pleasure on his face. Tomorrow is my 25th birthday and I must say there is no greater gift I could receive than to know that a child grows inside of me! Please keep our precious baby in your prayers, We are praying and believing God for a healthy, full-term baby!

P.S. I also want to say Happy 50th Birthday to Nana!
