“Look at the nations and watch… and be utterly amazed. For I am going to do something in your days that you would not believe, even if you were told.” – Habakkuk 1:5
The Lord drew me to this passage several months ago as I prayed for Sophie’s life and healing. As I look past over the past months, there are many amazing things that God has done that I would not have believed even if you told me. We believe that God still has much in store for our sweet Sophie and that He is about to do something through her birth that “you would not believe, even if you were told.” Kevin and I are amazed at all the people that have journeyed with us on this story that God has been unfolding and we pray that you would see His mighty work, His great glory and His awesome power through what unfolds in the days ahead. In the next day, we head to the hospital to start the induction process (we’re waiting to hear from the hospital on a time right now). Our doctor expects Sophie to be delivered sometime between Friday night and Sunday (but please, pray it’s Friday!!) We will post something tomorrow on where we’re at (well, probably my sister will be posting for me).
We know that many updates will be going out to our close family and friends throughout the coming days and would kindly ask that should you receive any of them you would refrain from posting those details on social media. Some of those details may be more specific and detailed than what we feel is appropriate to blast across the social media network. Obviously, if you see Kevin or I post anything via our blog or social media that is the information we want others to know and don’t mind being shared on social media!
As Sophie arrives, we know that word will get out fast (I think our little Sophie is trying to rival the royal birth with her own royal birth!). However, as God has entrusted Sophie to us and allowed us to be a voice for her we would like to be the first voice you hear of what God has done to proclaim His great works of her arrival. We are so excited to share her birth and so, if you hear of her arrival before we are able to let people know on a broader scale, please again refrain from posting anything on social media and allow us as her parents to be the first voice that people hear of her arrival!
Please be praying for Kevin and I as we are experiencing many emotions right now as we know Sophie’s birth will be so soon and pray for our precious Sophie that God would surround her (and us) with His love and protection as she makes her way into the world and into our arms!
