The First Encounter..

The first encounter... The first encounter with my son was the ending to an anticipated labor, but the beginning of my family with my husband. As a first time expectant mother, I was scared, nervous and excited, while I awaited "the day" that Pierre would make his grand entrance. I spent hours and hours beseeching the Lord, asking Him to calm my fears, and that is exactly what He did!

Let me begin by telling you what the Lord has done from the very beginning. He has been moving by His Spirit since the day we conceived. When I found out I was pregnant, I also found that I have 3 uterine fibroids. For a woman, uterine fibroids could mean that she MAY not be able to carry children or experience difficulties in the labor. A few weeks after finding this out, the doctor then told me, that although she had previously told me I was pregnant, the baby had no heart beat; that I was experiencing a miscarriage OR the baby's gestational age was calculate incorrectly. After hearing this news, my husband and I told our Pastor and began to seek the Lord more intensely. I just wanted my baby. I remember coming home from choir rehearsal and taking a shower. I was sitting in the shower quietly crying so that my husband would not hear me. My heart was so overwhelmed that my quiet tears turned into full blown sobs. I recalled to my mind the account of Hannah and how she went before the Lord asking Him for a man child. The Lord eventually gave Hannah Samuel, and she gave Samuel back to the Lord. I sat in the shower crying for so long, that the water got cold. I wanted my baby. I begged the Lord, asking Him to work a miracle. I honestly felt so low, but I did tell the Lord that if my child was not there, that I still wanted to serve him. I did not want to give up on the Lord because of a broken heart. I knew the Lord was able. I know He gives life. I stood on Hannah's testimony and waited for the doctor's results.

I went back to the doctor's office 2 weeks later and there was Pierre's heartbeat nice and strong. I cried. I wept before the Most High God. He is a miracle worker.

The Lord is able. He worked this miracle for me! Is there anyone who needs a miracle? Are you asking the Lord to do something "big" for you? Well, there is NOTHING too big for the Lord! The blessings and miracles do not stop here....but you will have to come back and read my next post! I will tell you about how God blessed my labor and delivery and explain my first encounter with my first born!

Thanks for reading! :)
Be blessed
