A young, married couple plans to fill their Christian home with children. Facing fertility issues, the husband and wife seek advice from doctors.
After months of trying the medical route and completing test after test, they retreat from doctors. As they decide to focus on their continuing journey of prayer, their dream of having a baby is left in God’s hands.
A few more months run their course, and the couple is still waiting. In God’s plan, an answer will eventually come, but it will be by His design and used for His glory.
Witnessing God’s lasting hope, peace, joy, and love, this Christian husband and wife discover their wish will be granted. A baby will be born just after the New Year begins. They are excited, but they take time to praise and show gratitude to their Heavenly Father.
Eventually, the baby boy arrives, but he has decided to enter the world too soon. Born prematurely and much smaller than expected, the boy’s status concerns his parents. Their “miracle” child is born, and the medical staff sees that he is well-taken care of.
Over the coming weeks and months, the couple care and love their little “Bubba” as they like to call him. He may be undersized, but he is healthy and growing. They feel so blessed and thankful.
For many couples, this scenario plays out around the world. With God’s guidance and modern medical care, more and more families are experiencing the joy of children in their lives.
Other families turn to adoption or foster care of children. When choosing what path to take, bringing God into the equation helps to guide each decision.
In contrast, the world has its own “miracle” child . . . a babe born in a Bethlehem stable over 2,000 years ago. God comes to earth as the incarnate Emmanuel. His light continues to guide lives each and every day.
