It took about two months for me to recuperate physically and emotionally, and shortly after I started feeling weird again. So I took a pregnancy test and that's when we found out that we were expecting again! We were so excited but didn't tell anyone until we were sure that we would be able to have the baby. After that, the trials began...we didn't knowing if we were going to be able to have Ian since the placenta had detached from the womb and we were in danger of losing him. Because of this complication I was in bed rest for at least 7 months so that Ian and I could recuperate. Some days I felt really sad and lonely because my husband needed to be at church while I was in the house all by myself. I couldn’t cook, clean or even wash my own clothes.
But at one point God gave me peace and I trusted that He was going to help me get through this. Next thing I knew, He gave me the most beautiful, crazy, loving and active baby ever. I dedicated Ian to God and told Him that he was His and to use Ian for His glory. I’m aware that God will do great things with Ian and I am so thankful for that and I will always praise Him for all His love for me.
There is a passage that I want to share with you that helped me get through this:
Isaiah 41:10 and 13.
"Don’t be afraid, for I am with you. Don’t be discouraged, for I am your God. I will strengthen you and help you. I will hold you up with my victorious right hand...For I hold you by your right hand— I, the LORD your God. And I say to you, ‘Don’t be afraid. I am here to help you.'"
We would love to hear from you. How has God redeemed a horrible situation in your life to give you blessings and show His love and goodness?
