“A woman giving birth to a child has pain because her time has come; but when her baby is born she forgets the anguish because of her joy that a child is born into the world” (Jn 16:21)
A couple in our church have been waiting for six years to have a baby. Doctors have examined them and declared that medically, there is no way they can have a baby. The husband was a Muslim who got converted to be a Christian. Some years ago, armed robbers shot at him but he escaped. Both of them are now born again and Spirit filled. The wife is a member of our choir. They worship God with great passion and faithfulness. I saw their tears in prayers and intercession. I saw their joy in serving God. They had faith that one day they will be parents! They always talk about ‘their children’ even before any baby came.
Against all odds, nine months ago, the wife got pregnant. It has been a challenging pregnancy. She could not stand or come to church for months. But pain is soon forgotten when a baby is born. Yes, they are now the happy blessed parents of a handsome baby boy. May this testimony remind you that the Living God we serve is a God of miracles! Nothing is too difficult for God! To God be all the glory! (This is the picture of the baby)
