My husband and I were so excited at the turnaround of things, the doctors have confirmed me pregnant after all the negative reports I was given even before I got married. I believe my DANCING IN THE RAIN to my creator was an acceptable sacrifice. But then in middle of all the excitement a bubble busting news came; my child wasn’t going to survive the womb and even if he does, he will live only up to a maximum of 72 hours.
My heart sank, my excitement was blown away, and my world was shattered. I was so scared and confused. How could my long awaited baby be taken away from me even before I get to meet him? I was all alone as my husband had gone on an official trip, I called to tell him what the doctors had said and all he said to me was not to panic but to wait for him to get back.
The days seemed so long as I waited, all kinds of thought going through my mind, I feared, hoped, prayed and cried… a lot. I spoke to my baby and prayed over him, I fought very hard not to accept the doctor’s verdict as final. Then my husband eventually came home, immediately he walked through the door he laid hands on my stomach and declared: “He that is from above is above all, Joshua you are from above so you are above all…” He prayed some more but these words were the ones I held unto because we had asked God specifically for Joshua.
Months rolled by until the ninth month and Joshua was born, the doctors started looking for signs of jaundice in him, I was particularly concerned because of his skin’s look and color, it matched what I had read earlier about jaundice and I was very worried. But once again my husband saved me from fear and doubts, he raised his voice and asked me to look up at him, when I did he said Joshua was okay and he had no jaundice, I said okay and since then Joshua has been okay.
This happened ten years ago and Josh has had no medical concerns whatsoever. God sure has a way of making things work out good for his own.
I am thankful that He heard us and perfected all that concerns our unborn child until now after ten years. I am also thankful that Josh will live to full ripe age and fulfill his destiny.
Be encouraged no matter what you face, if you place your life in God’s hands He will take care of you, maybe not exactly how you want it but He will do what is best for you.
And we know that all things work together for good to them that love God, to them who are the called according to his purpose.
I know the plans that I have for you, declares the LORD. They are plans for peace and not disaster, plans to give you a future filled with hope.
Being confident of this very thing, that he which hath begun a good work in you will perform it until the day of Jesus Christ:
