My sweet Jacob


Honestly don’t even know how to put today into words…. we started out the day in the NICU where a nurse told us about this sweet little boy who had been abandoned by his mother. His mom traveled from Haiti to give birth but once she had him, she left him in the NICU and had not returned. We were told he didn’t have a name, and would be taken to an Orphanage in Santo Domingo in the week. As soon as they said that the Lord prompted me to ask if I could name him, and if I did would he be able to keep that name. They told me of course I could name him. After praying about the name, Jacob came to mind so I pulled out my bible on my phone and began to read Genesis 28:15 which says “I am with you and will watch over you wherever you go, and I will bring you back to this land. I will not leave you until I have done what I have promised you.” I knew In that moment THIS was the name God had picked out for this child. He had chosen him before he was ever born. He has plans for this child and he will never leave his side. So many promises that He has made to this little Boy, and the Lord is faithful to keep them all. Before leaving we got to lay hands and pray over Jacob, and it was a moment I will never forget.
