We got married in Feb 2008 and agreed to wait for a while before starting a family. I remember a conversation with a family friend who asked us what we were waiting for to which we replied we just were not ready. He then asked what we would do when we were eventually ready.
We started trying from then on, praying fasting and believing month in month out and after about 2 years we decided to seek medical advice.
The news was devastating and we were advised that the only way was medical intervention. We still kept on believing God and asking Him to lead us- doing it His own way.
We tried two IVF cycles, which failed, and after then we got discouraged going down that route. Despite all this the Word kept coming that we would have our own children and this strengthened our faith.
We kept on holding on to scriptures such as Psalm 127:3; Jer 32:27 and my favourite was Matt 7:7 which we constantly quoted to God s hearing.
We also sowed into other children’s lives and believed God for our own. During Christmas of 2012, my husband woke me up around 5.30am and told me that we need to start praise and worship, and I asked him why, and he said God has done it for us…that he dreamed that I was pregnant ….I believed him…so we danced to His glory by faith. So in the morning, he quickly went to buy the pregnancy kit, I used one of them and the result was negative. We were both down and he later told me he had asked the Holy Spirit why didn’t it happen as revealed in the dream and the response was we would rejoice on our next cycle, so he kept the second pregnancy kit which we later used to His glory.
After about a year of not going through any treatments, my husband was speaking to his friend of blessed memory who was also a Pastor and he said we shouldn’t be discouraged and we should take the leap of faith, that by the end of that year we would carry our baby in our arms.
It looked like a tall order, but we did and to the glory of the cycle worked, the pregnancy was hitch free and 10 months later, our beautiful daughter was born on the 22nd Nov 2013 at 11.13pm
For anyone reading this and still waiting for God, keep holding on. His Word NEVER fails. At the right time He will surely deliver your bundle of joy into your arms. Believe His Word and not what man says about your situation. You will surely look back and the joy that comes with the breakthrough He brings will make up for all the difficult times you have experienced regarding this.
