The life of my daughter saved by our faith
So, my wife, Diane, and I were married for 3-4 years before we started having kids. Our first daughter was born and we were so excited and filled with joy.
We were planners you know and thought, wow, we wanted Laura to have a sibling pretty close to her age.
So we didn’t wait too long to try again, and our timing seemed to be good. We got pregnant and the two would be about 18 months apart…perfect plan.
Long story short, due to complications just a few months into our pregnancy we lost our second child.
We were devastated to say the least.
Now…the big BUT…BUT GOD! He never left us, just as he promised. And through that incredibly difficult time, He loved us through it and we healed. We studied scripture even more and became more committed to His Word. It took time, BUT GOD! He healed our broken hearts.
We decided to put our faith into action, prayed and decided to try again. God is faithful, we had another one on the way!
Not too far into this pregnancy, Diane started experiencing similar symptoms as when we lost our second child.
BUT GOD! Through that last experience we had grown stronger in our faith (especially Diane). This time we were more prepared – WE WERE NOT LOSING ANOTHER ONE.
As soon as we realized what was happening we pulled out the big guns! Strong Christian friends and Scriptures on healing – promises from God to us. We had studied them and hid them in our heart for such a time as this, and so did our very good friends Marty and Karen.
Mark 16:17-18 (Jesus speaking)
“These miraculous signs will accompany those who believe: …. They will be able to place their hands on the sick, and they will be healed.”
1 Peter 2:24 (Peter speaking about Jesus)
He personally carried our sins in his body on the cross so that we can be dead to sin and live for what is right. By his wounds you are healed.
These and other scriptures are easily found by just looking up the topic of healing in your Bible.
We got down to business and started praying, speaking these verses over Diane and laying hands on her. We prayed until the Holy Spirit gave us peace that we had accomplished the mission – saving my baby.
Miraculously, 6-7 months later Lisa was born and she has been a blessing ever since. Thank you Jesus! Another miracle.
