When my water bag ruptured prematurely in the twenty-ninth week of my pregnancy, I was put on bed rest in the hospital and again, I turned to Joseph’s simple teachings on the Holy Communion.
To combat fear, I partook of the Communion with every meal. The doctors said it would be best if I could make it to thirty-four weeks. By the grace of God, our baby boy was born at thirty-four weeks on GOOD FRIDAY! Jesus died so that my baby boy could live.
The Holy Communion is a powerful reminder of Jesus’ body broken for me so that I am healed by His stripes. It is a powerful reminder of His blood shed for me for the forgiveness of sins under the new covenant of grace. Baby Tommy is a healthy, happy boy. He is a living testimony that we are given abundant life through the death and resurrection of our Savior, Jesus Christ!
