Without my tests, there would be no TEST-I-MONY. Birthing my daughter was one of the most wonderful and scariest times of my life. Bringing a life into the world is never easy, but the challenges you face after almost losing yours in the process are well… let’s say makes life a little more interesting. After years of holding it all in, I finally mustered up the courage to share a bit about my journey and my struggle in my posts Labor & Deliverance Part 1 and Labor & Deliverance Part 2. It took years for me to realize that God never turned his back on me throughout my ordeal, but was in fact there with me all along. It was him who nudged me, and gave me that little burst of strength (I passed out and was blocking the door) to move my body so that the firemen and Emergency Medical Services (EMS) could reach in and drag me off the bathroom floor. It was him who kept my son’s mind in perfect peace, after he dashed into the bathroom to get my phone off of the floor and saw what resembled a crime scene off of CSI (he told me years later that he ran in when no one was watching and got my phone). It was God, who kept my mom and friends calm as they watched me fight for my life after my skin had turned ashen due to me losing my body’s total blood volume. It was God, who kept my niece (who was 11 at the time) who refused to leave my beside until I woke up. She prayed and watched over me in the ICU like a hawk. It was God, who whispered in my mom’s ear as I was being wheeled to the operating room, that I would live and not die. It was God, who calmed the physicians fears and got things moving after he froze momentarily stunned by the events that were taking place. He was there all along with not just me, but all of us. So if you’re struggling with something and it feels like God has left you to fend for yourself. Whether it be something big or small. Rebuke that feeling and start speaking his word over your life daily!
God, I know your there because in your word you said, “That you would never leave us nor forsake us. ” (Hebrews 13:5)
Romans 8:31-39 says, “Nothing can separate us from your love.”
Lord God, “though you slay me, yet will I trust in you.” Job 13:15
“Yea, though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death I will fear no evil, for thy art with me, thy rod and thy staff they comfort me.” Psalm 23:4.
“God is my strength and power: and he maketh my way perfect.” 2 Samuel 22:33
“But I will sing of your strength, in the morning I will sing of your love; for you are my fortress, my refuge in times of trouble.” Psalm 59:16
So no matter what you’re going through, hold on! He hasn’t left you, he’s still here. Just continue to speak life into your situation and watch God move in a mighty way on your behalf. ~Tashauna
