All in "God's perspective"
Dear suffering one,
Oh, the privilege that God has lavished upon you to enter into His heart.
To feel deeply of His pain, to share more wholly in His distress – the breakdown of His creation – to understand part of the depth of God – to know a side of Him that many do not wish or allow themselves to experience.
Last year, when I was nearing the end of my pregnancy with Kaleb, a C-section looked likely. He was breech and there is only one doctor I know here in Peru who would even consider a breech birth under certain conditions. When I had visited her when I was pregnant with Joel, our second child, we hadn’t seen eye to eye. But, feeling the leading of the Holy Spirit, I returned to see her 8 months pregnant, and this time we really connected. (The first time I had been to see her, I had been on the defensive and she had responded likewise to my lack of trust.)
I felt at ease with the doctor and when I went into labour, she did all she could to help me have a natural breech birth, but when Kaleb failed to descend, she felt that there was a reason why, and we should consider transferring to the hospital for a C-section...
Sometimes I look at a bad situation and I start praying.
And that is the right response...
