*This is an update. I spoke of 4 things God said, but only told you three! Scroll to the bottom and read what is in read 🙂 Sorry!
If you haven’t read the first blog related to this, you should stop, click here, read it, then come back. If you are up to date, let me begin.
What a weekend! God spoke four times this weekend regarding our child to be. All the while, satan and his petty handyman were at work attempting to break a faith stronger than any chain you could put on me.
Saturday (August 27) evening we attended a church we hadn’t been to in a while. While their – God spoke, “your child will speak to nations”. How awesome is that?! This blog could end right here and be enough for me! But God had more in store for us to learn. Half way through the service, I started bleeding again. I immediately went forward and asked for prayer. Some dear friends of ours came away from their obligation to pray with us as well as the bishop of the church. As they prayed I knew my child would be okay. While standing in His glory, God spoke through a person… “your child is going to grow up to be a little Samuel. When he raises his hands as a child, other kids will follow and do the same. That! is how powerful he will be.” Shortly after that, yet another person, says “Go home and name him tonight. Call him by his name each day. DO NOT wait until he is born.” Three messages in one night from God is amazing! (Note, the importance of being obedient when God speaks for you to say something to someone else and the ability to discern it’s truly the Lord speaking).
Elijah — Meaning: My god is the lord & Eli — Meaning: Ascend; to lift up; my God
My bleeding was not stopping but it wasn’t free-flowing either. The next morning, I awoke to bleeding that had stopped. It was only trapsing. Suddenly I was bleeding again, heavier than before and with tissue this time. To the emergency room we went again. After 4 hours this go round in the ER – we had to possibilities to explain the bleeding.1. I have a small hemorrhage in my uterus. 2. The baby attached to my cervix instead of the wall lining.
Both of these, unfortunately, cannot be diagnosed officially until I further into my pregnancy. So another appointment has been made in 4 weeks and they will do another sonogram and blood test. Even through this ordeal – God deserves the glory. The Bible says to, “My brethren, count it all joy when you fall into various trials” (James 1:2). It also says ” In this you greatly rejoice, though now for a little while, if need be, you have been grieved by various trials.” (1 Peter 1:6). So God says consider it joy! That means to be happy you are trialed against. Why? Because it means you are doing something right. If you are not working for the Lord – the devil would be happy – and therefore he wouldn’t have to waste any time on you. Now, do works for the Lord – and all of a sudden the devil has to work hard. Let me tell you… with my GOD and my FAITH in HIM the devil is working OVERTIME!
Thank you for your continued prayer in this time of our lives with Baby Elijah! We have an appointment with our OB on Tuesday August 30th.
UPDATE: The fourth thing spoke was Sunday evening. Being slain in the spirit, He spoke, “You are healed. Remember this day and never forget it.” How could I forget to write that!!! Part 3 is coming today or tomorrow. Look out for this one! Score: God 3 – Science 0!!!
