I’m sitting here in tears just thinking of God’s faithfulness. Take a minute to read what Brian + Mariah shared when they announced their twin pregnancy in July.
“A letter to my Miracles.
God is real and prayer is powerful.
I want you to know that you were not an accident, but a specific prayer prayed for when I was in one of the darkest moments of my life. I was close to giving in to the lie that God didn’t care about me, because of the pain I was going through. I read a book about praying specific prayers, and my thought was for you. I lost one baby to miscarriage, and thought, well if I’m supposed to pray specifically for something, I might as well pray for two now. When I found out I was pregnant again my first response was joy followed quickly by fear. Through these last weeks I have struggled with the fear and anxiety of losing you, but I’ve been constantly reminded by family and friends to ‘fear not.’ The unveiling of you two at my first ultrasound was as dramatic as it could be. Initially, with only one of you visible, I rejoiced. Then the technician said, “you know how I said there was only one?” I laughed and cried. God could not have possibly given me a better gift, and I’ve never felt so loved by him in my entire life. I feel like I am in a daily battle with fear when it comes to you guys, but I am determined that fear will not win. God has challenged me to post this before the 12 week mark in defiance of that fear. I am honored to carry you both and cannot wait to meet you in January!
Psalm 112:7 – They do not fear bad news; they confidently trust the LORD to care for them.”
Friends, God cares about you… the Dolls story is living proof of that! Keep circling your prayers and trusting in the Almighty.
