My name is Shaniel Byfield White and I am apart of the Leadership Team of Up From The Dust to A Life Of Purpose. And this is my story of God's Miraculous Power.
It was late December of 2016 when I had my very first miscarriage. It was an early one but early didn't make it any less painful. The joy I had when I first took the pregnancy test and found out that I was pregnant was now gone. I can't even begin to describe the amount of pain and isolation that I felt. Though my husband was very supportive I felt as though I was in a world all by myself. I was angry with God and I was angry with myself for losing the very first child that I was having for my beloved husband.
As December passed the following months slowly came and then finally it was April of 2017. My heart had finally begun to heal but the pain was still there. The soar in my heart about my miscarriage still hurt even though the wound was no longer fresh. I was getting accustomed to not being pregnant when suddenly I found myself feeling pregnant all over again. At first, I thought it was stress related but upon taking the advice of my husband, landlord and my sister I decided to do a pregnancy test and bam there I was pregnant again!!!
My husband was excited but I didn't know how to react to this good news, I was traumatized and I asked God, " Why me God? Why me? I don't want this one to end in disappointment again Lord Jesus. I am scared. " None the less despite my pessimism my husband became more and more of an optimistic. His joy and his faith were contagious and soon I started to give God the Glory for the little miracle that was growing inside me.
As the weeks progressed I still had some amount of fear but it wasn't strong enough to stop me from discussing which gender baby I would like to have with my hubby Rayon. I had a daughter before I was married and I so desperately wanted another girl.
The weeks continued to progress and my growing belly was now three months and once more I found myself paralyzed, crippled with fear. The thought of another miscarriage was so strong I felt as though this one wouldn't make it either. One night I cried so hard and fell asleep and it was that very same night I found myself crying out to God in a dream telling Him how scared I was. I told God in the dream that just like Hannah cried out to him for a son, I too was crying out because I needed my Samuel. Please, I begged God in the dream of the night, let this child move early so as to reassure me that I will have my son and it will be well.
That was a dream but what if I told you that in that third month God answered my prayer and I felt my baby moving. It was the most amazing feeling ever. My heart was full and I felt like the happiest girl in the world. From then on it was smooth sailing for me. I went into labor at thirty-eight weeks and six days. I remember saying to God," well my part of the work is done so far, I am now at the hospital now it is your turn to show yourself strong by giving me a good delivery and a healthy baby.
I felt heaven touched earth as I laid there on that hospital bed. God was there and I had my son at 8cm dilated and on January 13 at 3:57 pm weighing 9lbs 4oz. Our son was born and my husband and I named him Zion because we believe that He is truly anointed by God and has a great purpose for his life. Our baby was even born with a tooth and my delivery was only thirty minutes long.
God is awesome and when you pray and ask for a miracle God will come through for you. All you have to do is believe.
“For with God nothing shall be impossible.” Luke 1:37
