Birth

“Long before he laid down the earth’s foundations, he had us in mind, had settled on us as the focus of his love, to be made whole and holy by his love.”

Ephesians 1:4 (MSG)

Mine was a traumatic, breech birth with deformities in torso, heart, and mind. The doctor’s verdict–death most likely in three days or a vegetable throughout life. However, my parents and fellow believers knew of the power of prayer. Within that time period, God miraculously healed me body and mind.

A fellow pastor friend of my Dad’s had a daughter born around the same time, with the same first name, coincidentally, who experienced a similar birth entrance. She, however, was not healed. Was God playing favorites? No! Her parents thought her beautiful while growing up.

Thank you, God, the Creator of conception and life, who gives the gift and in heaven wholeness and holiness for eternity with You!
