More from Sarah Lyons

by Upper Room Editorial on Saturday, March 11, 2017

The devotion I wrote about my daughter, Rebecca, tells only a small part of our family’s story. Rebecca is one of six children, and she is also the only girl in a set of triplets. She and her brothers are now two-and-a-half years old and are thriving, happy toddlers who are as active as they are loving.

We found out I was expecting triplets about halfway through my pregnancy, and we put our trust in God that I would be able to safely deliver them. When they were born six weeks early, we prayed for them to grow stronger. We kept praying during Rebecca’s open heart surgery and the following year as she battled respiratory infections, one after another. God was faithful and carried us through every step of the way.

What a joy Rebecca must be to you, Sarah. Each day as you look at her and realize the miracle of birth and of the hospital doctors and staff that brought her along at a delicate time must bring praise and thanksgiving to God. I join you in pray for her continued good health and full development into the one God is calling her to be. Many blessings to all your family.

In the arms of Christ...Jesus Said:
Matthew 19:14-16King James Version (KJV)
14 But Jesus said, Suffer little children, and forbid them not, to come unto me: for of such is the kingdom of heaven.
15 And he laid his hands on them, and departed thence.
Such is your wonderful, beautiful, daughter who has been touched by the hands of God.

Thank-you Sarah for sharing your faith journey with Rebecca! What a beautiful little girl! My wife and I can relate to your family's journey as we are blessed to have triplet grandchildren (identical twin bows and a girl) from our son and daughter-in-law and a little girl from our daughter and son-in-law, all within 2 months of one another, they are all just over 2 years old now. We know and have experienced God's hand at work as the boy's had a condition known in laymen's terms as twin to twin syndrome while in the womb. A laser surgery corrected the problem that could of been fatal to all three. God has truly blessed our family with all these grand babies that are healthy and very active! May He continue to bless your family as well!

Sarah, Rebecca is adorable and so happy that she and her siblings are healthy and typical toddlers! My daughter had to have an emergency c-section at 24 weeks. My grandson, Matthew, came into this world weighing only 1 lb 8 oz and was given less than a 5% chance to live. The 5 months he spent in the NICU were a roller coaster of life and death situations but God was with little Matthew, the doctors and us. He came home on an NG tube, oxygen and a heart monitor. I was able to work from home for the next 5 years. This weekend we celebrate his 21st birthday! He has such a sweet spirit and God has blessed our family beyond words. May God continue to bless your family as he continues to bless mine with another grandchild coming in August from my youngest daughter!

I'm amazed (and grateful!) Sarah that you found time in your very busy life (with six children and three under the age of 3!) to share these inspiring words with us! Thank you. And may God continue to bless you with quiet times of inspiration to share.

Wow! God really trusts you and your husband to raise 3 singles plus a set of triplets! It's amazing that you found time to write today's meditation, but those of us that read it are truly glad that you did. We hope to hear more from you in future issues.
