************************************

One temptation that kept reoccurring in the late period of my pregnancy was fear.

I would usually just stumble upon a movie where a pregnant woman died during childbirth, or randomly hear someone tell the unfortunate story of a woman in labour. Of course, I knew my Father was still on the throne. But I won’t lie. This fear gripped my chest from time to time. The enemy is just a liar!

For some reason, I couldn’t see myself beyond the delivery of my child. I often struggled to paint a picture of her 1st birthday in my mind’s eye, hoping that perhaps it will rid me of this nightmare that I couldn’t just put to words.

But, thankfully there was this One Person I could bring myself to tell. He knew my heart, my fears and my inner struggles. So, when I knelt before Him at WWW on the 16th of June 2017, I tore my heart wide open and I laid all my worries down at His feet.

Usually at every one of our Just Us Girls conference, there was always this jar of promises made available at the registration desk. We were all expected to pick one (or more) promise slip before going in for the conference. On this particular day, for a reason I am not proud to mention, I went in without picking a promise. The conference went on and soon it was testimony time. A certain sister took the stage to brag about how God kept to every one of His promises to her. She specifically referred to the one God gave her in the promise slip she picked the year before. Right there and then, I repented and made up my mind to pick a slip before I left that day.

When I picked my promise from the jar, I unwrapped the paper very expectant that my Father will give me just what I needed. I was so sure. And indeed, He came through for me. I opened up my slip to reveal the scripture

“With long life I will satisfy you…” Psalm 91:16.

If that wasn’t exactly the words my heart needed to hear! I held on to it for dear life. And as if just to reassure me and strengthen my faith, I picked another promise slip on another service day and it revealed Deutronomy 31:8 to me.

It said;

But the Lord is the one marching before you! He is the one who will be with you! He won’t let you down. He won’t abandon you. So don’t be afraid or scared!”

Armed with these two promises, I became so sure, so confident. No kidding, fear had no power over me anymore!

It’s almost a year after. Do I still need to tell you that God is a promise keeping Father? Oh yes, I want to brag too! God will never fail! His words will never return to Him without doing what He says it will do. My princess is 6 months plus now. You know what? She has never been sick, not once. God has also kept me in the best state of health and frame to care for and nuture His precious daughter.
God will always show up! Be confident in this.

Kind regards.
Rema-the-BelovedπŸ‘‘
