Tere's Message of Assurance
CBN.com In the words of Tere Scott:
"My husband John and I had two babies. We had a perfect little boy and a perfect little girl. So when we were pregnant with our third, we did not see it coming. It just totally blindsided us. We lost three in a row. My doctor could give me no explanation. None of it made sense to me. I had a lot of questions. I lost a lot of hope. I was a walking numb person going through the motions just for my children and my husband’s sake.
And while I was grieving, God came alongside me and said, 'I know what it feels like to lose a son.' He just gave me that comfort in my heart. "I’m with you. I know what you’re going through.' So, I laid in bed one night and asked God my Hannah prayer, what I call it. I said, 'God, can I have another baby?' And I left it at that.
We found out we’re pregnant and I’m just in total fear. I’m afraid of losing the baby. I’m afraid - just every breath was fear, and I knew that that wasn’t from God."
"My husband John was very supportive. When I would be fearful, he would pray with me. Pregnancy progressed and we got an ultrasound that verified the baby was looking good, healthy heartbeat everything. But I had seen a heartbeat on other ultrasounds that didn’t make it. You know, I’m still in fear and I need hand holding and I need a special word from God."
"I think I was about 7 months pregnant. I was watching The 700 Club every day because I was hoping they'd have the word of knowledge - I want to hear something I want to hear. So I walked down the hallway to put some laundry away and while I was in the other room I heard Terry come on and say:
(Taped segment of The 700 Club) Terry Meewsen: A young woman is pregnant and you’re worried about your baby, but your baby will be born completely healthy.
"And I’m like, 'oh, my gosh! It’s my word of knowledge and I’m in the other room! I’m missing it! I’m missing it!' So I came running down the hallway and I just heard the tail end ‘the baby is going to be born healthy or the baby’s going to be born alive’ something to that effect. But I was like ‘that was for me!’
"The baby was born! The baby was born healthy (laughs) and the baby was born quickly. She ended up being born at home and my husband delivered the baby. And she’s perfect! She’s healthy! She’s great!"
"I waited so long for her to be in my arms that she can stay in my arms until she’s 30. I don’t care (laughs). She’s into her two’s."
"My little girl Eliana - Eliana Grace. And it means, 'I am the Lord who answers.' And when I saw that I was like, 'she is Eliana,' and we added Grace because it’s the Lord’s grace that brought her to us and allowed me to get through all those horrible fears, tormenting fears."
"He cared to come down and talk to me though The 700 Club and just let me know, 'I’m here. I haven’t forgotten about you and I’m going to answer that prayer.'"
