My hubby and I prayed for a child in 2015. In April that year, I was spotting and the pregnancy test kit did not show the clear results I was expecting.
At that time, my gynaecologist did not show empathy and simply advised me to see how things would go. I was heartbroken.
I remembered it was a Monday morning when I woke up bleeding heavily. The gynaecologist said I had had a miscarriage and that it was a common thing. My mind went blank and I kept asking why this happened to me. I was in despair and tried to ease my pain by taking cold drinks and eating food that I was not supposed to consume.
This continued until October 2015. I remember I was typing out my students’ portfolios when I felt God telling me to go to church. So I turned off my laptop and went for service at Marina Bay Sands Ballrooms.
I did not expect anything. All I wanted to do was to pour out the frustrations that were in my heart all this while.
At the end of the service that day, Pastor Prince said that someone in the congregation had lost a baby and that next year, God would restore what was lost. Upon hearing that, my eyes went red. I knew then that God would always be there for me.
In the same month, I felt dizzy on two occasions. But I did not read too much into it, thinking that I was unwell. After my husband went overseas for work, I felt something was not normal and decided to buy a pregnancy test kit. When I checked the results, it showed two clear red lines which meant that I was pregnant!
I took a picture of it and sent it to my husband. He was overjoyed. I did not expect the restoration to happen so quickly in the same month I heard the word in church.
Our boy was delivered last year and growing up well. Thank you, Pastor Prince and praise the Lord!
