God Made a Way Out of No Way!

How many of you have heard the saying, “He makes a way out of no way?” Well, I have heard this saying more times than I can count. It was not until I became an adult, that I really understood those words. I mean, I knew there was always an escape door to problems or if you are impossibly naïve, like I was when I was younger, I knew I eventually would make it through this or that situation (by the help of my parents, by the way). I did not tie all my breakthroughs to God being the one getting me through them. I think most of us still struggle with that today. When we view any daunting task that is ahead of us, most of us honestly start strategizing what we will do, how we will do it, and how we feel about it. Not too many of us pray about things first. We immediately try to strike out on our own, not living out, “He makes a way out of no way,” but, rather “we will make our own way.” Tell me, how is that working out for you?
As I approach another birthday of my youngest son, Julian, I am left to reflect on those very words that have been said many times. He is about to celebrate five blessed years on this earth, not by my will or even the will of his dad. He is only alive and healthy because it was first the will of God for him to be. When I look at my son, all I can say is, “He makes a way out of no way!” because God literally opened the floodgates of Heaven to pour out blessing after blessing in allowing me to celebrate this little boy’s life. Have any of you been faced with a situation that only the grace of God could deliver you from?
Peace I leave with you; my peace I give you. I do not give to you as the world gives. Do not let your hearts be troubled and do not be afraid.” John 14:27
You do realize this life will be full of troubles and turmoil? The great thing about it is, God knows all of it. God knows how to fight it, deal with it, overcome it, and move on from it. You could not tell me five years ago, that I would be where I am today. I was in for the fight of my life in February 2014. A somewhat normal pregnancy had turned into a minefield of life-threatening issues. But, during this eerily strange time, God’s presence was with me. He handled my burden so I did not have to. He made the pain bearable, and kept my mind from wandering to the worst case scenarios.
If anyone has dealt with real illness or just situations so out of control that you cannot fully be present in that space, then you understand where I am coming from. Life experiences are just that, Experiences! And we as Christians/People of Faith should know that all these experiences were predestined as well as preprovisioned.
You know when I sit down and when I rise up; You understand my thought from afar. You scrutinize my path and my lying down, And are intimately acquainted with all my ways.” Psalm 139:2-3
I had no idea of what would come of my son’s future back then. And to be honest, I did not know what my future would look like then either. Here I was dealing with a pain I had never felt before and I had no clue of what to do. I only knew of what me and my baby had to deal with right then. The doctors and nurses said it would be a long road to recovery for us. But, I would have gladly taken all the burden off his Julian’s tiny body and carried it all for the both of us.
After giving birth, in which I had to be put to sleep for the first time in my life, Julian was transported and admitted to the Children’s Hospital for ten stressful, anxiety filled, heart wrenching weeks. Every time the hospital called me I was prepared to hear bad news. On top of that, I was feeling all types of guilt and shame. I felt like I was the worst mother for not being able to stay pregnant to term. I mean you would think after having two babies before him, my body would be used to pregnancy, right?
But, remember that saying, “He makes a way out of no way,”? Well, just know that during our weakest moments, God’s strength and glory will always shine the brightest. And shine it did; because Julian not only recovered but thrived. He astounded the doctors, the nurses, and the staff by how much he bounced back from pre-maturity. The awesome thing is that you look at him now, and he does not reflect at all what he has gone though. God healed his body, healed his mind, and allowed for him to grow into a normal, dynamite little being who smiles often and enjoys being the boss of the family. My Julian will forever be a living, breathing testimony to how good God is. Tell me what is your testimony of the greatness of God?
In closing, I would like you all to reflect on your own stories. God has worked miracles all throughout our lives, and many of us do not recognize it until we are in a bad enough situation that only God could get us out of. I had eventually gained the knowledge that God will make a way, but it was not until I was forced into a situation totally out of my control that I really believed He absolutely and without a doubt WILL MAKE A WAY OUT OF NO WAY! I am living with a miracle daily, and I get to say, “Happy 5th Birthday Julian Langston Osborne Morton because God truly did make our way.
Peace and Blessings to you all and you got this!
