So going through the motions I began to lift my hands and sing just like every other Sunday, only this time was different. The life that Jacob and I had waited for, for so long was only just now growing. My God, I had never even felt her move yet! This couldn’t be happening! How was I going to tell Jacob? He would be heartbroken. Maybe if I closed my eyes and wished hard enough, I could wish it all away.
And lost in my thoughts I realized I had stopped singing. I opened my eyes and everyone had stopped singing. They were staring at me, or so I thought. That’s when I noticed it.
Upon each head was a river and it was gently flowing from one head to another. That was when it hit me.
It was so hot yet it didn’t burn. It was so strong yet I barely moved under its weight. It seemed to flow all through me, leaving no part untouched. Is it happening now I thought? The doctor said it would be painful, but I didn’t feel any pain, only a comfortable warmth. It was at that moment deep in my belly I felt it. A gentle thump and then another. My heart stopped when I realized what was happening. The river is running right through me and she moved…my baby moved.
I knew then that God had healed me…. and I would carry this baby to full term because a river had been sent.
