A great Warrior is born !!

Last night we welcomed the newest member to our extended family, Master Lucas.  9wks early and arriving in dramatic form via emergency c-section.

For you created my inmost being; you knit me together in my mother’s womb. I praise you because I am fearfully and wonderfully made; your works are wonderful, I know that full well.
My frame was not hidden from you when I was made in the secret place, when I was woven together in the depths of the earth. Your eyes saw my unformed body; all the days ordained for me were written in your book before one of them came to be. (Psalm 139:13-16)

My gorgeous niece had been struggling in her pregnancy the last few weeks so it wasn’t a huge surprise for this to happen, but it still was hard to process when it did happen.  However, I’m not here to blog about the dramatic experience but to tel you about my prayer time in the shower this morning… (Sorry for the visual.. LOL)

Quite often when I’m particularly praying over a situation, God will speak to me in pictures etc.  Last weekend fro example, when my niece was in hospital and I knew my sister was praying over at the time, I was shown a picture of the scene.  My niece in the hospital bed, my sister praying over her, and JESUS cradling the baby in his hands… like literally IN HIS HANDS.  Hard to explain, but it just shows that there is no limits or barriers between what he can do for us.  A mere human body doesn’t stop him cradling that baby in his hands.  I’m drawing on that image a lot today as I have Master LK on my mind & heart.

When praying for him this morning, I was given an image of the NICU and Lucas’s incubator, nurses in the background and lots of activity, but a pointed PEACE amongst the activity with Jesus having his hands through the holes in the incubator, resting them gently on the baby.   He can’t be touched more than is needed at present, and I had been thinking that he would miss that skin to skin human touch, especially from his mother, so to receive this image and know that he IS feeling human touch by his Heavenly Father was very comforting.

In the same prayer time, I was told that Lucas was a strong warrior !  That he would need to use his amazing strength far earlier than he should have had to, but nevertheless, I was shown that God has equipped him for this struggle ahead. He has blessed him with strength, perseverance, resilience, determination, patience and an amazing tolerance for the difficulties ahead, as well as an anticipated appreciation for the victories !!!

As an added prayer request with this blog entry, my precious niece is also in ICU with Diabetic Ketoacidosis (DKA).  If you don’t know much about DKA, (neither did I until I researched it at 11pm last night. :0)

Diabetic ketoacidosis is a serious complication of diabetes that occurs when your body produces high levels of blood acids called ketones.

The condition develops when your body can’t produce enough insulin. (in my nieces case it was because she went through a severe emotional trauma.  aka..  scared poopless and then being rushed to surgery with the safety of her baby in question.)  Insulin normally plays a key role in helping sugar (glucose) — a major source of energy for your muscles and other tissues — enter your cells. Without enough insulin, your body begins to break down fat as fuel. This process produces a buildup of acids in the bloodstream called ketones, eventually leading to diabetic ketoacidosis if untreated.

I’d really appreciate it if you could pray for Lucas and his Mummy, Daddy, big brother as well as the extended family.  Each of them will have their own difficulties and sacrifices to make in the weeks ahead and will need God’s strength like never before.  Also, we need to pray that there are absolutely no adverse effects from Lucas’ dramatic arrival.  I’m beyond thankful to know that God totally has this !!!

I am constantly reminded though that, worries aside, Lucas is an amazing blessing from The Lord and he will be much loved in our family.  I know that he will show amazing strength to all of us around him, and be an amazing example to all that meet him.  And above all, I know that he is FEARFULLY and WONDERFULLY MADE !!!

I will be still and know You are God

Good afternoon blogger peeps !!! Once again… it’s raining in Brisvegas, which is so great.. and we even got a decent storm with it.  I just love how God works in every situation though, as I have had ‘Still’ by Hillsong in my head all day.. so when it was storming just now, lightening, thunder, flash flooding…. those words came alive in front of me.

When the Oceans rise and thunders roar, I will soar with You above the storm.  Father, You are king over the flood.  I will be still & know you are God.

I have a list of great scriptures to share with you this afternoon which are of great help to me.

When I am afraid, I put my trust in you.  Psalm 56:3

“Be still, and know that I am God. I will be exalted among the nations, I will be exalted in the earth!” Psalm 46:10

Whatever you ask in my name, this I will do, that the Father may be glorified in the Son. John 14:13

For God alone my soul waits in silence; from him comes my salvation. He alone is my rock and my salvation, my fortress; I shall not be greatly shaken. Psalm 62:1-2

So we can confidently say, “The Lord is my helper; I will not fear; what can man do to me? Hebrews 13:6

Evening and morning and at noon I utter my complaint and moan, and he hears my voice. Psalm 55:17

The Lord is near to all who call on him, to all who call on him in truth. Psalm 145:18

For whoever finds me finds life and obtains favor from the Lord, Proverbs 8:35

In my distress I called to the Lord, and he answered me. Psalm 120:1

For I know the plans I have for you, declares the Lord, plans for welfare and not for evil, to give you a future and a hope.  Then you will call upon me and come and pray to me, and I will hear you.  Jeremiah 29:11-12

if my people who are called by my name humble themselves, and pray and seek my face and turn from their wicked ways, then I will hear from heaven and will forgive their sin and heal their land. 2 Chronicles 7:14

for it is written, “As I live, says the Lord, every knee shall bow to me, and every tongue shall confess to God.” Romans 14:11

And you shall love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind and with all your strength.’ Mark 12:30

Heaven and earth will pass away, but my words will not pass away.  Mark 13:31

I love the ‘Still’ lyrics and the fact that I’ve had them running through my head all day.  The ‘stillness’ is so important as it is VERY easy to get busy in your own mind with what ‘should’ be happening, or for the ‘why’ questions to start… and then have plenty of my own answers ready… but it’s HIS answers I need, it’s HIS promises I need to cling to, it’s HIS love that I need to soak in at these times even more than usual.

All I can say is how blessed are we to have God’s word to draw on and help us in EVERY situation.  There is not a single struggle, or blessing for that matter, that we can’t find instruction on in His Word.

Ok peeps…  Have a great evening

Blessings  xox
