‘Before I formed you in the womb, I knew you …’ Jer. 1: 5.
Emanuela proved when her world was shattered through the sudden ‘Home Call’ of her beloved Andrei on 26th October, 2016, Jesus was her peace. Days of unbearable burden, pain and sorrow. No greater peace can be found than that which is available through our Lord.
Pastor Andrei Pop and Emanuela were anticipating the birth of their first born child. But the winds of change were to blow cold and chilling days.
Graciously and without question, Emanuela accepted and faced the role of parenthood alone. She knew and experienced the true meaning of ‘let not your heart be troubled’ and so in perfect trust and acceptance, a contentment fills her heart, knowing her future is secured in God.
I wonder, under what circumstances do we notice God’s presence? In all of life’s insurmountable trials, times of brokenness, we have One who reshapes our life into something beautiful for His glory.
Psa. 139: 16 ‘ Your eyes saw my unformed substance; in your book were written, every one of them, the days that were formed for me, when as yet there was none of them.’
And so I welcome a special delivery, wrapped up in love, Baby Andreea Abigail Pop.This precious little darling, a miracle of God’s creation and perfection from the Giver of Life.
Let these tiny little fingers touch your heart – whisper Andreea and remember Emanuela just now in prayer; so many mixed emotions. Hold them both close in heart and prayer.
