Gratitude

Today I am sitting in the maternity department with my youngest daughter who is about to give birth to my granddaughter. My heart is overwhelmed with gratitude for the faithfulness of God.
My daughter was born at 28 weeks weighing just 2 lbs and today her baby, still growing in the womb at 36 weeks is weighing approximately 7-8 lbs.

To watch the faithfulness of God over the last 28 years of my last girl’s life is simply phenomenal. Her life story continues to leave me feeling eternally grateful for the numerous obstacles, barriers and bridges I have crossed over to get to this point . Her birth was no ordinary birth, her journey was no ordinary journey BUT the Lord stood with me and give me strength.

I’ve been knocked down more times than what I perceived was my portion as a Mom but God stood with me and give me strength. She made my tears become prayers. She made my fears become strength. She made my weakness become my victory. Every mess became my message. Every test turned into my testimony. Every crisis, I had a Christ. 

Today, I’m sitting here with her at her doctors’ appointments and I have so much to thank God for. She’s happily married, has her own home, has a healthy, active, bouncy baby on its way. They together as a family, continue to carry on the legacy of serving God and together building a happy life for their future generation. 

It’s so worth it to trust God. I’ve seen Him come through for me in so many hundreds of ways during the last 60 years of my life that I’m convinced that He’s watching over EVERY WORD to perform it. I still have many prayers to be answered but I’m not quitting any time soon.
