As I stood there singing my mind raced back to earlier in the week. The doctor said it would be only a matter of days and it would begin. I felt as though I were awaiting a death. How could I stand here then and sing songs about life? I have been the worship leader for years, so I really had no choice.

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 couldnít 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. Thatís 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 didnít 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 didnít 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 movedÖmy baby moved.

I knew then that God had healed meÖ. and I would carry this baby to full term because a river had been sent.
