A Miracle

Do you ever wonder – how do I know when I hear God’s voice?  

God has done many miracles in my life.  I wanted to share one of them.

About 10 years ago I was sitting in a church service crying. I felt completely devastated in the relationship that I was in and was crying out to God for a miracle. A man came up to me and began to pray over me. He told me to stop my crying that God was going to do a work in my life that would bring abundant joy like I have never experienced and that I would have 3 beautiful children.

I walked away thinking he got the message wrong or he MUST have given it to the wrong person.  You see I was never going to have children. I stayed in that relationship for 7 years after that prayer. I reminded God all the time… “You promised me!”

A few years ago I met an amazing man who brings me abundant joy on a daily basis.  He loves me like I’ve never been loved before. He doesn’t even have to say a word, just the way he looks at me and takes care of me, it's all I need to know. He asked me to be his wife.  He encouraged me that it wasn't too late to start a family. And you know how many kids he wants? You guessed it, three. 

We planned our destination wedding for September and on the day we go to the airport to get on our flight… guess who was on the plane with us?  The man who prayed over me 10 years before.

Of course if you’re reading this blog you would also know that I’m pregnant. I got pregnant on our wedding night.

God works in amazing ways, his timing is perfect and he is faithful to bring to completion all that he has promised.  But you have to hang on to His word, sometimes for 10 years longer than you thought…
