One Reason I Believe: My Faith Story — 33 Comments

  1. Poignant.


    So, so like our loving God. Nothing is too hard for Him.

    Thank you for sharing your story…you or the Holy Spirit made me cry.

  2. Wow, what an amazing story. I love a happy ending. That is such a cute picture of the older brother holding the baby brother. One day you will make a great MIL to 5 women and then you will have your girls.

  3. I just wanted to say Hi from SITS and thanx for visiting my blog! I love your blog, and although I don’t have a lot of time to read right now, I plan on coming back and reading through your stories. Just reading the first paragraph or two got me interested in reading more! You are a great writer! And you also have some great ideas too! Thanx for sharing! Have a great day! 🙂

  4. What a wonderful experience. It brought tears to my eyes. I’m sure words would not be able to tell you what’s in my heart. Just, thank you.

  5. Dear friend,
    This post had me in tears. You speak the language of my heart, and had “goose” bumps all over me while I was reading it from start to finish. That lady at the bookstore was an angel, I knew it from the moment you mentioned her, God sent by the Father to help you hold on to your faith. How I thank God for letting out paths cross.

    I am so looking for John 5:19 bloggers – bloggers who blog with a purpose, God’s purpose…bloggers who do not merely tell their own stories, but the stories of their lives as written by God Himself.

    Thank you for this post. Thank you for sharing your heart.

    Honestly, I cried when I read the part where you wrote that your husband’s tears were falling into your own eyes, and you were also, as it were, crying his tears… how touching.


  6. Thank you for your comments on my ‘confession’ post! 🙂 That was very sweet of you to take the time and what you said really means a lot to me. It is hard….I love him so much and I can’t help but think about how guilty I would feel for being hard on him if something bad were to happen. What I find is that he loves me more when I do make my behavior expectations clear! He has behaved so much better (still not great but he is only 2) the past couple of days. I notice when I behave better and am not lazy with my discipline, things are much better! I do feel like he is going to be a man much longer than he is going to be a little boy (I pray) and it is my responsibility to mold him into the man he needs to be. I only have a limited amount of time to do this and it has to start as soon as your child is born! It helps so much to hear you say the same words!! So… again… Thank you!! 🙂

  7. Whew..I’m in tears, and I feel so blessed to have read this today. What an amazing story! Thank you so much for sharing it!!!!


  8. WOW! What a wonderful story, I am glad it had a happy ending.

    I just wanted to say thank you for stopping by my blog.

    I look forward to reading more of your blog.

  9. When you said you could not imagine prayer, praise and the Holy Spirit in the delivery room it struck a chord…
    I was so disappointed when my midwife who had provided all my antenatal care could not be at my second delivery as she had to attend a more urgent case. ‘You’ll have to take pot luck’ were the words she used! I arrived at the maternity home in trepidation but as I walked down towards the delivery suite, I could hear the faint strains of beautiful praise and worship music… In the race to the hospital with ever increasing contractions I had forgotten to bring any of my own music to play. Entering that room was like being ushered into heaven… it was so beautiful..I have never forgotten that moment in time. God had everything in hand and provided a lovely Christian midwife to be on duty who prayed as she encouraged and assisted me to deliver my daughter.. just 30 minutes later. Pot luck? I don’t think so… not when God is with us!

  10. I am so sorry for the loss of your precious daughter. But what a wonderful, affirming post this is. How great you were blessed with that perfect baby!

  11. That was a truly touching story. I have been stuggling with my faith lately, but this story is what I needed to steer me in the right direction. Thanks.

  12. Oh the sweet, sweet love of Jesus.

    I have read this before, but as I read it again my heart (and eyes) just weep over the incredible and gracious hand of God.

    Every life is a miracle… my life, my son’s life, my future children’s life… but your story reminds me once again how profoundly true that is.



  13. I’m weeping! PRAISE GOD!!! And what a powerful vision his miraculous delivery casts for his life!!! Truly amazing! What a Mighty God we serve! Thank you so very much for linking up this incredible story. 🙂
