THE MOTHER'S DAY MIRACLE
The Mother's Day Miracle, story number two (out of 50) from my book, My Walk with the Lord, www.selahbooks.com, barnes and noble, amazon
II Samuel 12. 22, 23: "And he said, while the child was yet alive, I fasted and wept: for I said, Who can tell whether God will be gracious to me, that the child may live? But now he is dead, wherefore should I fast? Can I bring him back again? I shall go to him, but he shall not return to me."
One Mother's day, after church, I was laying down taking a rest when the phone rang. A Christian friend of mine said, "There is trouble at the cemetery, would you go see about it?" I felt the presence of the Holy Ghost and immediately drove to the cemetery. I got out of my car, looked around and there was not a soul in sight. I began to pray and seek the Lord for the purpose of my being there. After I prayed, the Lord spoke to me and said, "See that little baby's grave. I want you to go over to it and stand by."
As I stood by the baby's grave, I sensed the presence of the Lord. Five minutes passed by, ten minutes, 20 minutes, and the Lord said, "Have patience." After 30 minutes of waiting, I heard the sound of a car approaching. I looked up and saw a woman that I was acquainted with in earlier years. She came right to the spot where I was standing. That baby was hers and she was missing the child on Mother's day.
I began to talk to her and I told her that she couldn't bring her baby back but she could join her child in Heaven. She began to tell me all her troubles, her disappointments in life, her family problems, and her financial problems. As she began to unload, I felt the compassion of the Lord beginning to well up in me. Her family was feuding, her brother was sick, and she couldn't afford to call him.
I asked her if I could pray for her and she said okay. As I began to pray, the presence of the Lord came in a powerful way. I asked the Lord to reveal his love to her, and there at her baby's grave, she was born again.
The Lord told me to help her by giving her a little money. She tried to refuse to take it, but I insisted it was from the Lord. She said, "I will repay you some way."
Three weeks later, this 42 year old woman was brutally murdered. I spoke at her funeral and relayed what had taken place three weeks prior at the cemetery. This was the repayment to me and a great comfort for her family.
About a month later, one of her sisters called me and asked me to go to their house and have a service for the family. Her brother and sisters, mother and father, and most of the grandchildren were present. I preached Jesus to them and the Lord graciously blessed.
Since that time, her brother, her Daddy, and one of her nieces(21 years old) have gone on to be with the Lord. Surely, the Lord is good!
