Birth Of A Miracle
before we see the birth of our miracle,
we must first endure a period of pain and
suffering while we are waiting for it to be born.
Just as a woman must endure labor. This article
is to share with you the birth of my miracle.
My husband Mark and I had
tried for over a year
to have another child. I was in my thirties and I
I wanted to have another child while I could.
a year without conceiving, I made an
my doctor. We were told that I
could not possibly conceive,
due to the fact that my
body was not producing
They explained that there was
no chance of ever
conceiving without the aid of fertility drugs. At best,
even with the help of the drug, my chances were slim.
I took the drug for five months, but nothing was
The drug made me nauseous, and the doctors could not
explain why such a low dosage
would make me feel
So I decided I didn't want
to conceive this way, even
if I could. I knew in my heart that if I ever
another baby, God could make it happen.
months of being off the drug, I was finally pregnant.
The doctors all had to admit that
God had sent me a
miracle straight from heaven. I
would like to be able at
this point to say that from
that point on all was fine and
wonderful. But it wasn't!
This pregnancy was by far the
most difficult one I had
experienced. I was in pain for
most of the nine months.
I gained an extreme amount
of weight, and was
I also went two weeks over my
due date! But
to complain; I knew the old joy robber
satan would have
loved that. That's one of his
main goals, is to get a child of
God to complain
about their miracles I went into labor at
on a Wednesday morning. It was not until six PM
that evening that my husband and I dropped off
other kids at his mother's house and drove
When we arrived, I was told
that nothing was happening.
Although I was in pain, I had only dilated a centimeter
in ten hours of labor. I could not understand this because
my pains were getting stronger with each passing one
they were at this point coming every five to ten minutes
apart. They sent me back home. I was so afraid I was
going to have the baby at home! Around eight PM
back to the hospital. I knew I was in labor
they said I was dilating or not!
They checked me again and
discovered I still had not
made any further progress. My pains were coming at
this point every two to five minutes apart, and getting
increasingly stronger. I refused to go back home, so
the nurses finally got a room ready for me, and called
my doctor. They decided I could stay, but not be
until I started to make progress. Meanwhile,
was busy calling our family and friends to let
what was going on and to request prayer. I
hourly; my pains were still getting Stronger
and were two minutes apart at ten PM.
Satan kept trying
to convince me I was going to die.
He said, "you're
suffering severe pain, the pains are
getting stronger with
each one, but your not dilating
you are going to die." All I could do at this point
to call him a liar.
I believed that God had provided me
and I continued to believe that He was

Finally by one-thirty am I was
pleading to Jesus for
some relief. A nurse heard me
and came in to check on me.
Finally I had started to
make some progress. By 2 AM
I was admitted and
given some pain medication. The
pain for the most part
was then over and my miracle
was on it's way to being
born! By three-fifty that
morning I held my tiny Miracle in my arms!!
Thank you, Jesus!
God showed me through all
this that sometimes there
is a period of waiting, of pain and suffering before we
can birth a miracle. So if you feel in your pain and
uncertainties that you just can't take it another minute,
hold on, don't give up! Your miracle is in the making, it's
right at the door. Hold on, don't let go of hope you will
have your miracle whatever it may be! Don't let satan
rob you, don't let go too soon and miss God's blessing
for you! Hold on!
