I just wanted to share with you the awesome news that I AM PREGNANT! Rewind back to November 6, the day we received the news that my husbands sperm count was very low, in addition to that the test results indicated that they had slow forward progression. All I remember was the shock, and hearing them try to comfort me with the world’s comfort by saying that we most likely could conceive with IVF. They actually said that IUI would not even be an option because the results were too poor. That was not comforting to me. We had only been trying for 4 months at that point and my husbands test was just precautionary because I was having some spotting issues and the doctor indicated that they should take a look at my husband because he had seen women over and over have tests when in the end there was a sperm problem. So the news was unexpected and shocking.
I did alright for the first week until my period came 1 week later and then I completely broke down. I was feeling depressed, defeated and satan had me convinced that I may get pregnant but it wouldn’t be until we endured some horrific trial. (Satan is such a liar, man does he ever know how to make us feel horrible). My husband was very concerned for me. He rejected the diagnosis right away and said that you will get pregnant and have my babies and never had a doubt. That is definitely not my testimony. After 2 weeks, I realized that I can’t continue like this I felt miserable. We called our friends the husband is a pastor just starting a small church and they agreed with us in prayer, that was my starting point. Oddly enough we did not call one of the many pastors at my own church because I needed someone who would BELIEVE and to be honest our church does not teach very boldly on healing. Up until a few months ago I didn’t have a realization that I WAS ALREADY HEALED. After being a Christian almost my entire life up until a few months ago I really didn’t realize all that was actually finished on the cross. I still can’t believe how much was taken care of by Jesus giving himself freely to die on the cross.
I believe more then anything that I received my miracle from God’s grace and the finished work of the cross. I didn’t do anything to bring it on but I was determined to receive. If Jesus suffered so horrible for not only my sins, but his body was broken for my healing and he was nailed to a tree to redeem me from the curse then I was determined to have what he went through such a horrible ordeal to give me. The Word says that we have the righteousness of Christ therefore Jesus qualified me for all of the blessings including fruitfulness.
It took me many hours (in the hundreds) over the past few months to renew my mind and build my faith in order to believe. My husband faith was so much simpler. I had a few moments of doubt but each time my husband said Amy you need to resist Satan, he would have me repeat after him some truths from the Word.
I received Nerida’s message on God’s Timing and that spoke so much to me. Initially like I said I believed God would give me a child but a feared that a horrible trial would have to take place first. I was set free by the message that I am not waiting for God, he already did everything. He already answered. It brought me to tears many times thinking about how I didn’t need to wait. I started saying right away to anyone that knew of our situation that I didn’t have to wait. Jesus already went to the cross so we could have our healing right away and our children. I kept Nerida’s advice and only told people with a strong belief in God’s Word. Every person upon hearing the bad news immediately said that that was not true and that we would have babies. I know that there was many praying in the spirit for us and believed even when I was struggling.
3 weeks ago when worshipping and praying I really felt in my spirit like it was being confirmed that “it is done for you according to the word, and that this was it”. My best friend who often time has had accurate dreams, 2 days before I tested called to tell me that she was sure I was pregnant that she had a very clear dream. After we told my husband’s parents the news, they were so excited, my mother and law told me that one of the women she had asked to be praying told her the week we conceived that it was done and she would be having a grandchild
I am so incredibly blessed and thankful to God for guiding me over the past few months. He led me to this ministry. Please be encouraged God is no respecter of persons and I know that what he did for me, he already did for you as well.
