A Christmastime Miracle Baby

A couple weeks ago I read a post on Facebook about a sweet young mother who needed a huge miracle for her month-old baby to survive the day.

My heart was so deeply touched as I began interceding on her behalf.

Since she was a stranger to me, I read deeper into her blog to find out her whole story only to discover her husband had recently died.

Wow. And I thought I was having a rough day?

Unfortunately, I did not bookmark her blog and when I went to check the next day to see if the baby survived, I could not find it! I was so upset! I probably spent an hour looking for it through any of my friends I thought would know.

Two days later, an acquaintance on Facebook posted the rest of the story. (By the way, the young mother’s name is Sarah Rodriguez.)

I was so shocked by what I read, tears began filling my eyes.

I don't want to spoil it for you. But if you want in on something big....I encourage you to take a look here

This mother has walked through multiple ethical dilemmas that would challenge any believer, and has chosen to walk by faith.

This will grow your faith and bless your heart!

Merry Christmas!

 

P.S.: Here are a few more posts from Sarah that you don’t want to miss:

Patti Creekpaum

By Lisa Cherry

This week I am sharing 3 important testimonies from 3 special friends of mine whose lives answer this question:

Can homosexuals change?

Patty is a dear friend of mine. When she heard we were writing our new book Not Open:Win the Invisible Spiritual Culture War, she sent me her story to share with the world.

I am so proud of Patty!! And I am so proud of Jesus!

I was there to witness her miracle transformation with the food box ladies. And I am so glad she is willing to tell you what happened!

So without further delay... please meet my friend and sister in the Lord, Patty.

"My history does not define who I am. The Bible says so. Therefore if any man be in Christ old things are passed away. Behold all things are new. 2 Corinthians 5:17 

In 1980, while in the army, I came out of the closet as a lesbian. I got into radical feminism and was pro-choice.

I claimed to be an atheist for a while, then I was into reincarnation and claimed Shirley MacLaine was God.

Christmas 2000: A couple women left a box of food at my door. They left a Bible in the box. (The Bible made me mad.)

February 2001: I attended a Bible study at the church that left me the Bible. I was in this church to disturb its people's peace. These people just loved and prayed for me.

May 16, 2001: I asked for my salvation on a Wednesday night in a friend's car. I woke on Thursday morning with no homosexual desires. I was prolife and I knew that Shirley MacLaine was not God.

For about 10 days I had minor identity problems and experienced a little fear because of the sudden change. My friend Nancy taught me this scripture: For God has not given us the spirit of fear but of power and love and a sound mind. 2 Timothy 1:7

In August 2013, I still am in the process of healing wounds from my previous life. I am strong and have no desire to return to the past mess of a life I once lived.

I wake up every morning and go to bed every night knowing that my Heavenly Father loves me and performs miracles in my daily life."

 

Do you know someone who needs this miracle in their life? Will you share Patty's testimony with them?
