I just received such a lovely email from a faithful friend:
I just wanted to write you a note of encouragement this morning as you have been on my heart a lot lately! In fact, though the night last night! I found that I couldn’t sleep and for some reason I thought of you and your husband and your struggle over the last few months of desperately wanting a child (a completely natural feeling for every women!). I have so admired your strength during this challenging time and wanted you to know that the Lord burdened my heart to pray for you guys throughout the night last night. So, as I was praying I got a picture of you lying down with a big preggie-like belly, but it was quite different to a conventional pregnant belly, your tummy was big and round and glowing with this bright blue light. It almost looked like lights started to shine out of your tummy as if there was a party going on inside! And then this song started playing (it was in my head obviously because it was the middle of the night! Thank goodness ***** was asleep because he would have thought I was nuts, I was praying up a storm J ). Anyways, the song is called Glorious Ruins and its by Hillsong Live, I am not sure if you have heard this song or sang it before in church, but it is one of the most powerful songs I have ever heard. This song was so loud in my head as I was watching you lying there with these like strobe lights moving in your stomach and I just know that the ruins in your body have COME TO LIFE and that you will bear LIFE because there was movement, songs, dancing and lights all coming out of you!
I am no prophet, but I really wanted to share this with you. I know you have been through a really tough time and I know that I cannot begin to understand what it must be like. But I do know a powerful man named Jesus and he asked me to pray for you through the night and HIS light and LIFE will shine out of you and the I look forward to the day that you tell me of the Glorious Ruins that have come to LIFE in your body and I look forward to the day that you hold your MIRACLE child in your arms!
I have copied the lyrics to the song I had in my head below and a link to the live music recording:
Hillsong Live – Glorious Ruins Lyrics
Artist: Hillsong Live
Album: Glorious Ruins
When the mountains fall
And the tempest roars You are with me
When creation folds
Still my soul will soar on Your mercy
I’ll walk through the fire
With my head lifted high
And my spirit revived in Your story
And I’ll look to the cross
As my failure is lost
In the light of Your glorious grace
Let the ruins come to life
In the beauty of Your Name
Rising up from the ashes
God forever You reign
And my soul will find refuge
In the shadow of Your wings
I will love You forever
And forever I’ll sing
When the world caves in
Still my hope will cling to Your promise
Where my courage ends
Let my heart find strength in Your presence
Watch a LIVE video of the song here:
I love you lots and although we don’t chat all the time, I want you to know I care about you and what you are going through and I know that THE BEST IS YET TO COME for you and ****.
I am feeling so faithful and just known that our powerful Father has a plan for us and our child.
Excited for what the next few weeks or even months hold. All in His perfect time.
