Some years ago, in 2008, my husband and myself were brought to our knees, after years of struggling to conceive. After this and an (almost) failure in our marriage, we fully gave our hearts and lives to Jesus @ the Alpha course and camp at our church. People prayed with and for us and we experienced God’s love in a way we never ever felt or realized it before. We started not only doing separate Bible study and prayer but starting doing it together as a married couple!
In April 2009 we visited our fertility doctor in Pretoria after numerous (4 actually) attempts of conceiving through the IVF procedure. It was as if this time things were just different and going smoothly from appointment no1. Weeks after 3 special little eggs were implanted, we were notified of the most awesome miracle in our lives, EVER. We were pregnant!! with twin boys!! and God has blessed our acing, longing hearts with healthy little babies that were born on 12 January 2010, perfect and healthy from their 1st breath.
This is a true testimony that when we fully gave and committed our lives to Christ, He blessed us more than we could ever dream of. Our boys, William + Philip, are 5 years old today, and I (and we) will never look at them a day, forgetting the true miracle and blessing from God they are.
We praise the Lord always xxx
A prayer for our children:
Isaiah 54:13: “All your sons will be taught by the Lord, and great will be your children’s peace.”
Father, help me to trust that Your Holy Spirit teaches, guides and shows our chidren the way. I will not continue to ask and plead but will reach the acknowledgement: “You are their Guide and Teacher”.
