I didn’t know her strength, honestly. At the time I had given birth two times already with a new baby growing inside of me. Pregnancy and childbirth became a familiar experience but I just watched my cousin give birth to twin boys Kingdom and Kingsley then watched them pass seconds later. How? Why? I couldn’t understand my reality at that moment – I don’t think she did either.
I walked out that hospital room and cried until my eyes couldn’t produce tears anymore. My phoned ranged from concerned family members only to advise them there isn’t a baby to take home. That night my whole family was hurt, there was nothing we could do or say to make the situation change but we prayed.
“Lord I ask for you to be with us today, as we ask of you everyday. Lord forgive us for our sins and listen to our cry. Lord we ask for your protection, healing, and strength during this time. For Lord we know not your plan but we give you the glory and the thanks in advance. Lord if you don’t do anything else we know that you have done enough but we know that you are a loving God, Lord we ask of you to just make this make sense.” -Amen
I’ve always been a strong believer that prayer works.
I later discovered that her cervix was too small to carry twins making her go into pre-term labor at 23 weeks. Six weeks later she became pregnant with a little boy. She had a healthy pregnancy and a healthy baby. She named him Kingdom. Kingdom is such a beautiful and vibrant baby who currently has a baby brother on the way…Kingsley.
What an awesome God we serve. For when we think we are forsaken, he comes and restores with his plan.
Kingsley I’m so happy you are back. Can’t wait to see you again. ❤
For I know the plans I have for you,” declares the Lord. “plans to prosper you and not harm you, plans to give you hope and a future.
