My dad and mom are just fantastic people. They are avid followers of Jesus and committed prayers. Since the day Brett and I voiced that we desired to start a family, they have been passionately praying every morning for us to conceive.
But every month…nuthin’. So I would call my mom and cry and she would say, “It will happen in Gods timing.”
Sometimes that answer wasnt good enough for me. So I would wrestle in prayer while thoughts and stories of other couples horrors ran through my mind day in and day out. Really, the only guarantee in life is that there are no guarantees. And thats the truth whether you are a believer in a higher sovereign being or not. Unless of course, God speaks a promise. When God speaks a promise, you can guarantee that promise will be fulfilled.
One day I called my mom feeling a bit bluesy and sad over yet another “nuthin” month. I was telling her how my desires for children changed from wanting no kids to wanting like 5, and why would my desires change so drastically if not for the Lords influence?
“What if God gave you twins? Would you be ok with that?” She said to me once. ”Because the Lord told dad the other morning when we were praying for you that when you get pregnant you will have twins.”
“Well, mom, that is just absurd!”
As absurd as that sounded, every time I saw my dad he would say, “Stop worrying, the Lord told me He is going to give you twins.” In fact, it got to the point where my dad couldn’t pray anything else. He couldn’t help but pray for twins because twins was the truth. It’s what the Lord said. When my dad would pray, the word “baby” would not even be able to leave his mouth before the Lord would change it to “babies”.
And so this blog is to bring glory and honor where it is due. To the Lord, Jesus Christ, who is faithful with His promises.
The truth is i AM pregnant. About 9 weeks. And, with no fertility drugs or manipulation of any sort (other then prayer i guess), we are in fact pregnant with twins.
