Wait to get dressed - Ronke Taiwo - True Story

Wait to get dressed:

My son, Inioluwa, (He is 1 yr and seven months) has a habit of running around butt naked after his bath. I always have to chase him before I can get him dressed up. This morning it was quite chilly, so as soon as I bath him I hurriedly pulled him to the room so as to dress him up.

He screamed and struggled so much so that I found it difficult to wear his trousers. I had no choice but to throw him on the bed face down and put my leg on him (to hold him down). Then and only then was I able to dress him up , though as you guessed, the screaming and struggling continued but I didn’t let him go until I succeeded in dressing him up.

I believe that’s how my life somehow is. I always want to achieve my desires and in good time, but sometimes some things keeps pressing me down and I scream and struggle under the weight. I never thought I might just be held down so that I could be well clothed for my destination. Sometimes I feel I’m being held back compared to some people I know but what if they were not properly dressed. If he kept running around naked in the chilly weather, he could catch a cold, and as a good mother (really trying), its my duty to protect him from that. The same way God is here to protect us from chills along the way.

Only God knows where we will be in future and all we could ever achieve. Another thing he knows is the timing. He knows the right time for everything. So do you feel like my son that you are being held down and slowed down. I’ve got good news for you, it’s in a bid to get you dressed for where you are going. Inasmuch as you wouldn’t like to get there naked, suck your stomach in and release your arms and Wait for Him, cos you sure need to look good and God is watching your back.

Isa 30:18 - But God's not finished. He's waiting around to be gracious to you. He's gathering strength to show mercy to you. God takes the time to do everything right — everything. Those who wait around for him are the lucky ones.

I want to thank God for the birth of my son through so many struggles. I didn’t deliver on or before my EDD (Expected day of delivery) and I was worried not knowing the reason why. I was scheduled to be induced on Wednesday, 27th of October but with prayers I fell into labour on Tuesday, Oct 26th after which I hurriedly went to the hospital. My labour pains became strenuous and constant by 5pm on Tuesday and by 2am on Wednesday, I still haven’t delivered even though the pain was constant and rigorous.

My husband, the doctor, and I agreed together in prayers and by 3am on Wednesday, I delivered virginally a bouncing, big and handsome baby boy. His weight was 4.5kg (10 lbs). It was a miracle. God answered my prayers.

Lesson I Learnt From The Experience;

The baby didn’t come early because he was a big baby. Most of us don’t get our miracles at the time we want it because it’s a big one. God always prepare us for a big miracle. Do you want a “big miracle”? Then you require a “big patience”

I went through a lot of pain before I delivered. I believe the pain we go through in life can sometimes be our friend because it helps us PUSH (Pray Until Something Happens) out our miracle. When pain comes it is a pointer that Joy is on its way. Weeping may endure for a night but joy comes in the morning.

When I got to the stage when I had to push my baby out and after trying so hard and the baby refused to come out, I became tired and felt like giving up because I had gone through so much pain. I even asked the Doctor for Alternatives. I realize that at the point when your miracle is so close is the point where we get tired and we seek answers from elsewhere. If we get to the point when we feel it’s almost over, that’s when we have to push harder and our miracle will come.

At the point when I Relaxed, my husband (who was with me through out), the doctor, and the nurses all started encouraging me because the baby had crowned. Their screams of encouragement brought the strength I thought I didn't have and I finally pushed the baby out. We should always have encourages around us. What kind of friends do you have? Are they pulling you down or encouraging you to go higher. Do they believe in what you believe? Are they born again? Your friends have a large role to play in you achieving your desires.
