Joyce Marie Miller's Testimony
I have had a lot of battles to face in my life, but none like the life changing realization that I was with child. I had a very rough start with my pregnancy. The father of my child decided to block me out his life after I shared the news with him that I was pregnant and that I had decided to keep it. He wasn’t ready for it. Every bad and negative thought went through my mind.
Then I developed hyperemesis gravidarum. This is when you experience extreme, persistent nausea and vomiting during your pregnancy. For nine months I was in and out of the hospital because I was puking so much that I could barely hold water in my system. The devil started to deceive me, telling me to not keep my baby because I wasn’t the right fit and I wasn’t going to be a great mother. This started to wear on my mind as the pregnancy was wearing on my body.
After my daughter was born, she became the light of my life. Although we didn’t bond right away due to my postpartum depression, I couldn’t ever imagine now my baby girl not being here. God sent so many angels to minister to me that I could do this, that I was going be a great mother despite the devil’s lies. I’m so thankful to God that I chose to keep her. Kathilena is my blessing, and she will forever continue to bless my life and fill my heart and teach me how to love properly.
