Hannah Lynn Wade 7lbs 3oz, 19″ long 5:32am on 6/24/13
This morning my son Tyler and his lovely wife Emily welcomed Hannah Lynn Wade into the world. The wait was over. She made her entry.
In reality this is not the beginning but a “touch down” in the journey of life. Scripture records and tell us that
Jeremiah 1:5 “Before I formed you in the womb I knew you, And before you were born I consecrated you; I have appointed you a prophet to the nations.”
Hannah did not come from her parents, but through her parents, Tyler and Emily.
Revelation 13:8 All inhabitants of the earth will worship the beast — all whose names have not been written in the book of life belonging to the Lamb that was slain from the creation of the world.
Galatians 2:20 tells us “I have been crucified with Christ. It is no longer I who live, but Christ who lives in me. And the life I now live in the flesh I live by faith in the Son of God, who loved me and gave himself for me.”
That means even when He gave His all, He had and has a plan for Hannah. Hannah in Hebrew speaks of grace and mercy. That is such an awesome place to start. Loving parents, loving God and a name that speaks of grace and mercy. Lynn most likely speaks of “lake” or “waterfall” or “pool.” There is something truly prophetic in that, there is a God who speaks like “many waters.”
So, how miraculous is birth? Specifically this birth? In December 2001 I received a call that Tyler had been involved in an accident and was dead. He was not dead, as it turned out, but he was in a coma for a few months and in rehab. In his life he has “beat” the odds so many times. God has been good Tyler. A few years ago he gave His life to the Lord Jesus. And then he married our beautiful daughter-in-love, Emily.
This birth is not just miraculous, but supernatural. So many issues have been defeated in their lives for the birth of this lively child.
Whenever you may be prone to doubt, I would ask you to be moved by this testimony of the goodness of God.
Hannah-we welcome you into this family with loving arms. Bless you Tyler & Emily. We love you!
