Long time no post. Whew!!! It’s not been as simple as A B C for some time now. A lot on my plates that I had to attend to. Hopefully as the Lord helps me, I can be faithful to posting once or twice weekly. Let us grow this blog people!!! hehehe.
Okay, it’s been two months since the Caesarean section awareness held. I am so grateful to everyone who took their time to share their stories. While I hear of great testimonies from the awareness, I can only bless God for the opportunity.
Today, I want to say that the goal of the awareness was not to attack anyone or denomination, it was aimed at enlightening and informing. One thing, I can’t be more grateful to God for but bless Him, is the opportunity of discussing with an older friend on this same topic and I am so glad he took the step of faith to have his wife have a supernatural delivery.
Losing someone so very close and dear to me to the cold hands of death at childbirth is one that has lived with me and would live with me. Now, enough is enough of losing precious mums and babies to the cold hands of death due to the fact that they have been made to understand that CS is not the normal way of delivery and it doesn’t term them being Hebrew women. Have you ever asked yourself how the Hebrew women give birth? (a topic I would discuss in another post). God is the creator of every invention and creation. God has blessed Men and Women with knowledge to save lives. If you are a medical practitioner as a christian and in a position to save lives by the knife, won’t you? I see what I do as a ministry and I believe also that saving lives is a ministry you are called to. So it pains me deeply to see Christian Doctors, who are ministers, tell those they lead to have faith and not approve of CS.
If you can go to have an appendectomy done, why can’t a pregnant woman have a C-Section done? You do not mind taking drugs for an ailment or having surgery done to remove fibroid but it becomes a sin for a woman to have CS. She becomes a faithless woman by that. Oh how I wish you had an idea of how much faith she has to exercise – in God first, then in the doctor and all the caregivers around her. In the drugs she has to take that they will indeed relieve her of her pains to be able to move around as soon as possible and most importantly in the healing power of God to heal the internal wound she cannot see.
How many lives do you want to be lost before you remove the scales from your eyes and those you have blindfolded? As a Christian mom who has known what it is to lose someone and have had the joys of birthing through CS. I tell you today that you are very normal and you are a Hebrew woman. If you need to have your baby via CS to save both lives, I am here cheering you on.
God did not give you that child to kill you. God did not give you that child to end up having that child go motherless. It is not the will of God that mothers die at childbirth. It is not the will of God that babies die at childbirth. One thing God gave us is the power to choose. Choose life.
Dear husbands and fathers to be, God’s plan is not to make you a widower. It is not his will that you are left with a baby to care for without the help of your wife. God’s plan and will for every marriage and home is husband, wife and children; alive, healthy and living for him.
Isaiah 66:7-9 (MSG) “Before she went into labor, she had the baby. Before the birth pangs hit, she delivered a son. Has anyone ever heard of such a thing? Has anyone seen anything like this? A country born in a day? A nation born in a flash? But Zion was barely in labor when she had her babies! Do I open the womb and not deliver the baby? Do I, the One who delivers babies, shut the womb?
Genesis 3:16a (NLT) Then he said to the woman, “I will sharpen the pain of your pregnancy, and in pain you will give birth…
1 Timothy 2:15 (AMP) But women will be preserved (saved) through [the pain and dangers of] the bearing of children if they continue in faith and love and holiness with self-control and discretion.
While the last ST has a broader scope as to what Paul was talking about, at creation God’s plan for childbearing for women is to save her and the child, though painfully.
God bless you. Amen.
