Psalms 86 vs 12: “I will praise you oh Lord with all my heart and I will glorify your name forevermore”
Today, I am the one that have returned to say Thank you Abba Father! For you are good and your mercies endures forever!
This testimony is a pledge I made to God regarding my kid sister who I call my first born.
About five years ago at about 23 years, she was diagnosed with Uterine Leiomyomas (Fibroid). The report was particularly depressing for me because that was the last, I wanted for her coming from a place of experience, but I trusted God.
We prayed and fasted and kept trusting God for a divine intervention as her type was the fast-growing type and comes with extremely heavy bleeding and painful periods.
This became a serious prayer point for me and that the Lord should connect her to her life partner in “good time” God’s time.
She tried so many therapies including keto diet, but this worked only for a short time as the fibroid kept growing but less stressful.
She had a major disappointment in her relationship around mid-2017 and she decided to devote her time to her spiritual walk and her fashion business which she chose in place of practicing as a botanist.
On my part this also became a major prayer point personally and at every prayer meeting on this mountain.
Around September through October 2018, our parents in the Lord, Daddy and Mummy Oladiyun kept raising altar of prayers almost at every service for everyone believing God for a life partner, I always come out with her picture while I stood in the gap for her.
To the glory of God, she met her then Fiancée November the same year.
On May 17th, 2019, precisely on her 27th birthday, he proposed to my sister and we started making wedding plans.
Less than 2 weeks after the proposal, the fibroid pain returned with her period, became unbearable as it had grown 7 times over and was obstructing some of the major organs in her body. We sought 2nd and 3rd opinion, and all were recommending a myomectomy (Fibroid surgery) with almost immediate effect.
It was initially very hard to come to term with this recommendation, reasons being that we were planning marriage couple with the myth around myomectomy and conception plus how would the fiancée feel? kind of thought were all there to battle.
In 2nd week of June 2019, Daddy Matthew Ashimolowo came for the annual programme. On the first day of his ministration, he talked about David and Goliath. His highlight of that ministration was “You are the first stone”. We were both totally engaged with the ministration and fiercely praying every prayer point raised because I personally knew our lives depended on it most especially because of the surgery and her ability to be fruitful in marriage.
The surgery was slated for 18th June 2019. The surgery was successful, God be praised! Over 20 fibroids with three big ones likes the head of a baby were removed from her uterus.
Post-surgery recovery was initially challenging as my sister was literally losing blood. She was bleeding profusely from the drain site and at this point I was afraid but kept chanting all the promises of God and activating the covenant of life over her. She was given four pints of blood within 48 hours and to God be the glory the Lord intervened, and she was on her way to recovery. Her recovery was divine!
We had the wedding in October and November 2019, respectively.
To the glory of God, the one that answereth all prayers in due course and season, my sister got pregnant immediately after the wedding. No morning sickness at all, she was extremely strong and hyperactive carrying the pregnancy.
Although the doctor strongly advised that she could not afford to go into labour because of the initial surgery which was still fresh, hence an early elective Caesarian section had to be done to avoid any sort of complication as soon as the child was fully developed.
On 26th June 2020, my sister and her husband were blessed with the cutest and healthiest baby boy. Within one-year God changed her story!
The God of CLAM Mountain is working!
Jesus is indeed working!!
Praise the Lord!!
