Thanking God for Answered Prayers

I do not know how many times I would need to remind everyone how the Lord answers prayers. Oh, He does!

Not just for Jed and me, but for a lot of people, too.

Whenever we pray at night, our list of things we want to thank God for never ran out.

Ask and you shall receive...
Recently, we have been very specific on what we pray for. We prayed for the car we wanted, and He gave it to us.

At my small group meetings, I would ask my friends to help me pray for a baby. Jed and I planned to try for a baby a year after we got married. I know several people would raise their eyebrows on this decision, but we wanted a full year to adjust to married life and enjoy each other's company without a third member. We were right to do that. Adjusting to married life was harder than I thought. And I am grateful I am only taking care of Jed on our first year. If we already had our baby, we would not have moved to Cebu in a heartbeat.

So when the home pregnancy test kit showed me two lines last Monday, I immediately uttered words of thanks to the Lord. We were specific in our prayers - to be pregnant during the first quarter of the year. And it happened!

A visit to the OB confirmed that Jed and I are pregnant. And that was when I started telling people about the good news. I am on my 5th week, and is estimated to give birth on my birthday month. Now, how cool is that!?!

My husband is probably the happiest person on earth right now. Coming in close second happiest is my mother whose life long dream is to have a grandchild.

And I continue to pray this time for a healthy pregnancy (no complications, Lord!), a healthy baby, and for God's continued provision. I believe He will prepare me for this new chapter in our lives.
