I may be a mother of 5, but really I’m a mother of 7! Yes, you heard right...7!!! Unfortunately, I lost 2 babies before I birthed my first child. After having two miscarriages back to back (weeks apart) I thought I'd never see the promise. I remember how hard it was to walk through this part of my process. But He told me I would have a son named Isaac. So I bought a keychain with Isaac’s name on it in faith (before ever giving birth to a child) and I kept it close. I had to bind the thought of barrenness and loose the promise of fertility. No Isaac was not my first born, but he was my first born son! I am a witness that one word from the Lord can manifest and make what was just a dream...your Reality! My one word was Isaac! I didn't see him until after Alyssa and Brooklynn, and then here Isaac comes by way of his twin tag along partner Daniel. He spoke it in 2006, but the promise didn't manifest until 2012!
Be encouraged, the Word says in Matthew 18:18, Truly I tell you, whatever you bind on earth will bee bound in heaven, and whatever you loose on earth will be loosed in heaven.What are you binding? What are you loosing? The victory is in your faith! And your faith can been seen in the words you speak and your corresponding action! When we release our faith on Earth, Heaven lines up in agreement and it happens!
Yes it may be painful now, but when the promise manifests...you realize it was all worth it. I don't have to carry a key chain around now to remind me of the promise because Isaac is here now. Now my PROMISE can speak for itself!!! Everyday my son reminds me of what I loosed with my words and actions. Today (regardless of what it looks like right now) remember what you’ve bound and loosed and keep moving forward because life's too short to live stressed when you're JessBlessed!
