Happy Birthday Dear Miracle Daughter

Posted: January 4, 2015 in Prophetic Dreams, Revelations and Prophecy

At 12:08 a.m., the house quiets down for the night and our miracle daughter slips off to sleep with her overnight friend as her 14th birthday begins. Eight minutes into her special day. CA is God’s child — prayed into existence by an older sister, 10 years her senior who cried out to God for a sibling.  I tell her amazing beginning to all who care to hear and believe in miracles.

There is a back story, of course. My husband CJT and I had an average American life and family.  Married in 1985…three years later we welcome a son, AC on 5/11 (Biblically 5 is the number of grace and 11 is prophetic).  Then three years later…on exactly the same day,5/11 (double grace, a double prophetic child), we welcome a daughter, JM. Without thinking to ask God’s opinion on our family planning, three years later…in a dreary Kaiser Hospital basement, during Sacramento’s foggy month of January, husband undergoes a vasectomy and that ends our family with 2.0 children, or so we think.

Time goes by. I teach public school full-time with young children. I am content being surrounded by youngsters during the day, with two of my own, a boy and girl, nights and weekends.  Then….God wakes me up one morning with a powerful vision. It is like what I imagine an angelic announcement would be like — glorious light and a future destiny unveiled.  We will have more children! How is this even possible, I think. What would you do? What would obedience look like?

God is a “gentleman.” He asks or suggests, but does not demand. Even Mary, mother of Christ, when told what will happen from the angel Gabriel in the book of Luke is given a choice. She responds with faith: “Mary said, ‘I am the Lord’s servant! Let it happen as you have said.’ (Luke 1:38) We were given a choice also. Believe with simple faith and move forward, or decline God’s vision.
