Against all hope, Abraham in hope believed and so became the father of many nations, just as it had been said to him, “So shall your offspring be.” Without weakening in his faith, he faced the fact that his body was as good as dead — since he was about a hundred years old — and that Sarah’s womb was also dead. Yet he did not waver through unbelief regarding the promise of God, but was strengthened in his faith and gave glory to God, being fully persuaded that God had power to do what he had promised.Romans 4:18-21 (NIV)
The above verse reminded me of my close friend who were recently blessed with a healthy baby boy, not that they are already 100 years old! Weyo? It’s just that they had been married for 10 years + and had been trying to have a child all that time.
They brought their precious lil’ one to church for the first time today. I could see the overpowering joy and pride in their eyes as they held their precious one in their arms the whole time! They have always been like the our example couple, very loving and faithfully serving in church in cell and children ministries for so many years. It was because of their encouragement that I too went to help out at children’s church and then LaundryApah took over from me after I had Kieran. I could see how much they love children from their commitment and zealousness in teaching and caring for the kids which led me to wonder why God took so long to bless them with a child. Well God works in ways we cannot understand but is definitely for our own good! So, I would like to take this opportunity to thank God for his faithfulness in blessing this wonderful couple as they remained faithful in HIM!
To all you out there who are trying for a baby, have faith!
