HAZEL FAITH April 23, 2019 - April 29, 2019
Hazel Faith, not your average preemie story. The girl who doctor's pushed for us to abort weeks ago, telling us even if shes born 40 weeks full term she may not breathe, see, hear, quadriplegic, missing 2 giant pieces of her brain, already having seizures in utero. Our daughter would have no quality of life they said.
But we gave her every chance we could we gave God our baby to grow in my womb until July and let her be what he wanted her to be. God showed us another side to his plan and it was one of total surrender, as if we werent already there. God pulled her from her cozy home in my belly 12 weeks to early with a weight just over one and a half pounds. A fragile beautiful life thay was already hanging on the balance had she been born 6 pounds.
Hazels life was never given hope, viabillity, or merit even if she grew in her cozy womb for 40 weeks.
We don't know why God pulled her out early, we may never know. But once again we are giving her back to God total surrender. Already God had shown himself
Though she was intubated, and not breathing alone, she did for almost 8 hours she breathed on her own at less than 2 pounds, at less than 40 weeks gestation the "non viable" life thats was once inside me was on the outside breathing. Thats the miracle, NICU life is tough for any baby, but this particular baby was never intended to survive at a normal gestation. That's the beauty of this God were serving, thats the wonder and awe of unwavering faith.
So even if she was all of those things one day, blind, deaf, quadriplegic, missing 2 giant pieces of her brain. She was ours and she is still a mirical work of art masterfully crafted by God, for God and his purpose, and we only had her for a blip in time, but we dedicate our gift back to and and give him total surrender of our lives, our hearts, and our daughter. Heavenly father, please accept this child and use her for your glory all the days you shall choose, and please Lord continue to heal the missing pieces that are now in me as I gave them to you when you took her home. Amen
For this child I have prayed And You heard my cry For this baby I had faith And You gave new life In this moment now I pray And I vow to You this day I dedicate this baby back to You I dedicate myself to train and love them like You do I will do my part I will put Your Word into their heart I dedicate this baby back to You You have granted such a trust With this precious gift With Your power, by Your love My all I commit On this straight and narrow way For Your purposes I say That I dedicate this baby back to You I dedicate myself to train and love them like You do I will do my part I will put Your Word into their heart I dedicate this baby back to You
