The Blessing of a Child

“I want you all to know about the miraculous signs and wonders the Most High God has performed for me.” (Daniel 4:2)

It’s a great privilege to share this testimony with you all. (Psalm 127:3) From the Holy Bible says, Children are a gift of the Lord, The fruit of the womb is a reward. We thank the almighty Father for this reward.

For us, our first daughter Priscilla is a great blessing. Being the only child, we kept her contended but she was not fully happy. She needed a company. As a working couple it was difficult for us to think about the second child. But for our beloved daughter we decided to have our second child.

It was a great joy to get the news about the second child but that lasted for few months only, as I had a miscarriage. I was depressed. In this tough period prayers gave me consoling promise.

Once again, I conceived but doctor predicted high risk. Doctor said its only after five months he can tell whether I can continue pregnancy or not. Each and every moment was stressful for me. It was a great burden on my part and every time, I was thinking whether I will get a chance to share good news of pregnancy or bad news about abortion. Undergoing the second abortion was like walking through the valley of the shadow of death. (Psalm 23:4) and (Isaiah 66:9) gave me strength.

I changed the hospital, the sonography centre and started spending more time in prayers. Daily I use to read at least 15 to 16 psalms which increased my strength. My prayers and my husband’s fasting prayers said, Is anything impossible for Lord? With this faith we went to Pune for sonography and few test suggested by the doctor. These tests were very risky, and the chances of abortion were more. I was afraid of this test but God removed my fears and we passed this test successfully and all the reports came normal. I have travelling phobia but this time I travelled comfortably without any problem.

Thereafter whenever I went for sonography my reports were normal and on 10th June 2015 I gave birth to a healthy, normal and cute baby girl ‘PARMINA’ which means a supporter. Indeed she has supported our life with happiness.

Those who said, Oh! No, one more girl, will never understand the bounce of joy that God gave by saving one life and that too for us. Priscilla daily prayed for the gift of a sister and now she is happy and grateful to God for this gift. Last but not the least I will say thanks be to God as the blessing of a child is only from God.
