There are a couple of things I've been meaning to share about for a few days and haven't gotten around to it. I think it's really important to give God the praise and glory when He amazes us in our daily lives and I have not done this much recently, so here it is...
First of all, I love the way He shows Himself through the Body of Christ. I was so humbled last week when I was blessed by the love of Christ shown through my pastor's wife. She and her husband have tried in the past to have kids of their own, but to no avail. I have often wondered how she can stand to see so many women around her having babies left and right with the greatest of ease. I was overwhelmed when I told her I had felt the baby kick because she didn't just respond with polite congratulations or a forced smile--she was genuinely thrilled for me! I have never seen a better example of the attribute of love in 1 Corinthians--Love does not envy. I know that she did not come by this love by her own merit, but by the Holy Spirit doing a mighty work in her--Praise God.
Secondly, I received an urgent prayer request the other night for a young woman who has already suffered three miscarriages and was bleeding and cramping at eleven weeks of pregnancy. I called another friend who knows the pain of that kind of loss, and we just prayed our little hearts out for C. and her little baby. The whole time, I just knew everything was going to be okay. My friend called me back about an hour later and said C. and her baby were just fine--the baby had a strong heartbeat and was moving around like crazy! I am so thankful! Please pray for C. and her baby over the next several days as her spotting has continued and it is a very stressful time for her. She did have another ultrasound today and everything continues to look great!
And finally, I was in a car accident on Monday and just cannot thank God enough for keeping me and Baby safe. I got to see the baby through ultrasound today and he/she is looking beautiful and healthy, moving gracefully and heart beating strong. I pray that someday that little heart will know the Lord and be amazed by all that He does, all that He has done from conception to gray hairs and old age! Are you amazed?
