Neriah

I’m amazed at God’s faithfulness!

Five years ago today we welcomed Neriah into our little family of two and our world has forever changed in a good way.

She is truly a gift, the sweetest girl.

The latter may seem like a biased opinion coming from me, but those who have had the pleasure, yes pleasure of being in her presence know that she is the sweetest soul. A gift from Heaven.

Neriah is the light God sent us after losing a child.

This post is to celebrate God’s faithfulness, it is also to encourage the woman who is past what the world considers “normal” child bearing age.

I pen this for the woman who has made decisions during her younger days that now thinks that her inability to conceive is God’s punishment for her not so ‘pro-life choices”.

I pen this because I’ve been where you are and I know how heart breaking it can be to want something so bad, and have it then lose it.

I pen this for the woman who has been married for years and still hasn’t conceived.

I pen this to openly thank God for giving me grace to endure the difficult times, so that I may share the testimony that is Neriah; to encourage women who are where I’ve been, God hears you, and it’s for you it shall come to pass.

I pen this to thank all of you who prayed for us and to those of you God used to speak a prophetic Word over us, you know who you are.

I pen this to give praise to the MOST HIGH for hearing my private prayers and rewarding me publicly.

” A drop from Heaven- a poem inspired by Neriah Betts”

“She shall be the seed

Of a fruitful tree”

Affirmed the Maker

“Flesh a long awaited dream 

Taken from the shadows 

And turned into gleam;

For I have chosen her

To stand as my solid rod

and bare witness

to the Light of God” 

composed by my sister friend Cindy Orellana

“For this child I prayed; and the LORD hath given me my petition which I asked of him”
