Tito Idakula

Tito Idakula‘s testimony is one of unending hope and faith in God.

After she and her husband, Bez, lost their daughter in July 2015, they welcomed their son Joshua in July 2016. She has however revealed, in a new post shared with Mylighthouse.com.ng that in September 2015 she suffered a miscarriage after being pregnant for 10 weeks. In the post she shares the journey from this experience and the birth of her son.

She says “I knew I had to share this story. God has been too good to me and for me, my life is all about sharing his goodness with everyone I can. My son is 3 months and today feels like the perfect day to share this very long story. I hope someone finds hope. I hope you will be inspired to seek God in new ways and on a deeper level. Thank you for all your kind words and prayers, I am eternally grateful.”

Read her testimony, as shared with mylighthouse.com.ng below.

On Sept 7th 2015, I had a miscarriage. I was 10 weeks pregnant.  Ironically, this happened on the day I got baptised. It was during church service and I spent a significant amount of the service in the bathroom; Bleeding.  I still went ahead with my baptism because it became so clear to me that I needed that baptism. I needed the cleansing. I needed to be refreshed and to start anew and as I stepped in that pool of water, I felt God so strongly. I knew I was walking into a new beginning and everything prior was being washed away. I still don’t know how that water did not turn red considering how heavily I had been bleeding a few minutes before but I had no doubt that something changed with that baptism.

This is probably not what you expected to read. After all, I am the same person who shared my testimony after the loss of my daughter.

I am sure like me, you expected the next part of my  story to have been more straightforward. Especially now that you probably know I gave birth to my precious son in July 2016, a year after I shared my testimony.  However, please do not think God did not know what I was going to experience because he did and he prepared me to stand and I did. Praise and thanksgiving never ceased from my lips because I made a decision that no matter what happened in my life, I would praise God. I didn’t have the answers and I was not going to spend energy, trying to figure it out but I knew God had the answers and so I left that burden to him and gave him his due as God. I was not going to try to do what only he can do. And he showed himself to truly be Yahweh because in October 2015, I got pregnant again and in July 2016, a year after I shared my first testimony, I shared another testimony because he blessed us with a beautiful son.

When I found out I was pregnant again, I was in awe at how quickly God showed up because I truly never expected it. I thought it’ll take some time and that was fine with me. I wasn’t in any particular rush to get pregnant again but God does things in ways I can’t even imagine and he decided it was time. Who am I to argue? I was so ecstatic. I was at a point in my life where I was waking up at 3am every morning, spending time with God and growing in relationship with the Holy Spirit and everything about my pregnancy was spirit-led (it sounds like cliché christianese but it really is the truth).  I didn’t even have to do a pregnancy test to know I was pregnant. It was a dream I had that told me I was. In my dream, I was about to take a glass of alcohol and someone tapped me on my hand and said: “drop that glass, don’t you know you are pregnant?” and I just knew I was. I told my husband and that was that. I didn’t even bother with a pregnancy test because my spirit was so connected with the spirit of God that I knew when he spoke. This was in October and I eventually did a pregnancy test in December (just because I wanted the physical confirmation). I also didn’t want to do a test earlier because I just didn’t want to be too human about things. I knew once I did the test, I would start fussing, trying to control things as I had done in previous times and this time I couldn’t be bothered. I remember writing in my journal and telling God that I was leaving this child in his hands because he is God and he is the only one who can truly keep the child.

I found out I was pregnant in October but I didn’t go to a hospital until January. The first 3 months of a pregnancy are often the most delicate and it is after 3 months that you can usually be sure that your baby is going to make it. I decided to give my first 3 months completely to Dr God because quite frankly, I couldn’t think of a better Doctor. I continued to wake up at 3am to pray and was always at work by 5am to begin my shift at the radio station. Apart from a cold a few times, I didn’t experience one bit of morning sickness. In fact, I continued to work out with a trainer after work until I had to stop.

I didn’t go to a doctor until January and once again, I chose a doctor based on the leading of the Holy Spirit because in previous experiences, I chose based on where people recommended not where God told me to go and I was doing things differently this time around. So I wrote a prayer request asking God which hospital I was to go to and he dropped St Raphael’s in my spirit. I immediately recognised the name of the hospital as my Uncle’s hospital (his wife is my mum’s blood sister, same father, same mother). I thought it was random because I hadn’t been to that hospital since I was a child and being the badly behaved child that I am, I hadn’t even spoken to my uncle since 2014. These are all sentiments I expressed to my husband as I told him what God laid in my heart. I remember saying to him that I didn’t know how I was even going to reconnect with this uncle and anyway, if God wanted me to really go there, he would create the avenue. And God being God, he created the avenue because a couple of days later, my uncle’s son (my cousin) who also happens to be a doctor sent me a message on Facebook. He and his wife wanted to attend an event I was a part of and wanted tickets. It seemed like a coincidence but I had learnt at this point that answered prayers come as perfect coincidences. He had no idea I needed the opportunity to reconnect and the last time we exchanged messages or spoke was also in 2014. However, God heard my little prayer and used him to create an avenue to reconnect. This is how I knew which hospital to go to.

At my first visit to the hospital, my doctor immediately put me on bed rest (not because anything was wrong but because he termed my baby: a special baby). Also this man was a father figure to me as a child and I guess he didn’t want to take any chances. He was extra careful with me and with each visit I could see why God directed me to that hospital. I had the best doctors and I had complete peace. We were also on the same wave length spiritually as he insisted we kept the pregnancy as quiet as possible which is something the Holy Spirit had told me too, so once again, I understood why God directed me to this hospital. Through various avenues, God had been telling me to hide and had literally stopped me from going to certain places. He had also directed me to the story or Elizabeth and Mary and I noticed how Mary stayed with Elizabeth for at least 3 months of her pregnancy and Elizabeth hid herself for 5 months and as I read it, I once again felt a strong prompting to hide and that is what I did during this pregnancy. I didn’t share with people I normally would have shared with and for a very very long time, it was between my husband and me until a few people figured it out but even then I stayed in hiding barely going anywhere. With every appointment, my doctor emphasized the need to keep my pregnancy quiet and I obeyed him. This was probably the most difficult part of being pregnant for 9 months but once again, I had chosen to be completely obedient to the spirit of God and I did what I was led to do.

As the pregnancy progressed, I had decided I was going to travel to the states to have my baby and also just to “hide” myself. However, that didn’t happen because once again I felt I was to have the baby here. Every time I was to buy my ticket or plan logistics, something came up and in my sensitivity to my spirit, I kept feeling I wasn’t meant to travel. I had been reading the story of Saul and something God pointed out to me was that obedience was better than sacrifice. God had already told me which hospital to go to from the beginning, so why was I looking for yet another hospital in the states. Fortunately, my husband is also very spiritual and when I told him about my lack of desire to travel, he actually expressed that he had also been getting the same prompting, we prayed about it and we just had a peace with the decision not to travel. This was also very tough because I remember someone saying to me that God can’t tell anyone to stay and have his or her child in Nigeria. I found that funny on so many levels because my daughter passed away in the states and if anyone understood that it was not a function of where you give birth but the grace of God, it was me. I made the decision I felt comfortable with in my spirit and even though I was also not sure why, it made sense later.

As we deliberated where to have the baby, we also asked God for the name of our child. We knew it was a boy and we had been trying to decide on a name. Not to sound like a broken record but we decided to pray about it and let the Holy Spirit lead and God being so faithful he did something amazing. You might call in a coincidence but I know that isn’t the case. On a specific day my husband and I prayed and asked God for the name of our son, the name Joshua immediately dropped in my spirit along with Jeremiah 29:11. I was confused and mixed up the verses so I checked Joshua 29:11 instead and of course no such verse existed. I then realized that God was sending the verse Jeremiah 29:11 to confirm the name Joshua because he was essentially saying he knows the plans he has for us and that included our son. I was still musing about this and I remember praying to God to confirm the name with my husband.

One random afternoon, my husband and I were having a conversation and I felt the baby kicking so I just said: “why don’t we call him Joshua?”  My husband gave me one of the weirdest and funniest looks ever and I immediately wanted to back track because I wanted God to give both of us a name we would agree on. So when I saw his expression, I thought maybe it wasn’t the name. He then asked me why I chose that name and I explained that the name was dropped in my spirit. He then proceeded to explain the reason for his funny expression. Apparently the name Joshua had been on his mind for 2 weeks already and every time he wanted to refer to the baby by name, that was the name he wanted to call him. So the fact that I suggested that same name blew him away and he was amazed at the way God answers every single prayer. He kept saying: “God really answers all prayers”. I think that was one of the most powerful ways we saw God work because a seemingly ordinary prayer, God answered for us.  The name Joshua means: Jehovah is my Saviour, Jehovah Delivers or Jehovah is Generous. For us, we have seen God show himself in this name and in our son’s life. The generosity of God hasn’t stopped flowing to him.  God continues to be a deliverer and it’s a real privilege to watch God work. God has done abundantly more than we could have hoped for or imagined. He has given us beauty for ashes, turned our sorrow to joy and has given us dancing for mourning just as he promised to.

On the 5th of July 2016, at about 12pm in the afternoon, I gave birth to our beautiful son: Joshua and that experience was truly God covered.  God gave me what he promised but not as I imagined it. I learnt then that we can’t box God in a corner and just expect him to do what we imagine, he is God alone and he alone knows the best plan. I didn’t expect to have my son by caesarean section. I worried about the recovery time, scarring and other factors so I kept praying for a quick, natural, painless delivery. A specific verse I held on to was in Isaiah 66: 7-9:

Before she went into labor, she had the baby. Before the birth pangs hit, she delivered a son. Has anyone ever heard of such a thing? Has anyone seen anything like this? A country born in a day? A nation born in a flash? But Zion was barely in labor when she had her babies! Do I open the womb and not deliver the baby? Do I, the One who delivers babies, shut the womb?

I knew I was going to have a quick and painless delivery but not in the way it happened and once again I saw God show up.

On Monday the 4th of July, I started to have contractions. They were completely painless, although I felt pressure. I even wondered if they were Braxton hicks simply due to lack of pain but because they were quite intense and lasted for so long, I knew they were contractions. I also knew I wasn’t going to be in any pain so I had to focus on the pressure instead and judging by that, I knew it was time to go to the hospital. Just as I was about to leave for the hospital, I started to leak so my water had broken. As soon as I got to the hospital, my uncle (doctor) started watching me. He was concerned that my water was leaking because it meant my baby was now connected to the world. And once that happens, the chances of the baby having an infection are higher. I learnt that is one of the main causes of jaundice with newborn babies and my uncle was not going to let that happen to my child.

He wanted us to have the caesarean section as soon as possible but I kept saying to him that I wanted natural delivery. Also I wasn’t in pain and I remember the nurses saying my labour wasn’t far along yet otherwise, I would be screaming in pain. I told them, I wasn’t going to have pain so they shouldn’t wait for me to start shouting. In fact I made sure I put on lipstick before going to the hospital because I wanted the experience to be memorable. Lol. My Doctor decided to observe me for a while and see how my labour progressed. I was expecting that by the time they checked my dilation, I would be at least 4cm dilated but I was barely 1cm gone. It was hilarious because I had been feeling intense pressure for a while. This process started around4pm in the afternoon and by 4am the next morning, I was barely 3cm dilated. At this point it was becoming quite apparent that I would have to have a CS but I wasn’t feeling it. This was the time I knew why God sent me to this hospital and to my uncle and cousin. There is a way your family can speak to you that strangers can’t and when the person is your uncle, there is no way you can say no.
My uncle told me I should have the CS because the membrane protecting my baby was compromised and we didn’t want to risk him having an infection. At this point, he was still speaking as my doctor but when I kept insisting on natural birth he switched to Uncle mode. I remember him saying: “Bolatito, don’t allow the devil to have a chance.” It was at that point, I gave myself sense, because it didn’t even matter if the baby was born naturally or through a caesarean section, the most important thing was to have a healthy baby. So after asking a few questions about the procedure because I had been ignorant before, I agreed to the CS. I should state that at this point, my labour had stopped progressing completely and I wasn’t feeling anything at all. As soon as I agreed to the CS, I felt at peace.

Everything happened so quickly after. I went into the theatre and was put under anaesthesia but was completely awake for the whole thing. Within 5 minutes of being cut, I heard my baby crying. It was THAT QUICK. I couldn’t believe it. My Uncle and cousin were in the theatre although a consultant did the operation. As soon as my baby was born, my uncle brought him to my face for me to see and took a selfie of us. It was the most awesome experience. I was still being operated on but I felt such joy. With my daughter, I never heard her cry so hearing my son cry was one of the most amazing sounds EVER. I was so happy. They took him away to be cleaned as they continued to operate on me. Apparently there was a degenerated fibroid that was the reason for my labour not progressing and even if we had waited more hours, my labour might not have progressed and my baby could have gone into distress and also been infected. I started to see clearly that God directed me to my uncle because unlike a stranger who had no choice but to respect my wishes for my labour to progress, he could speak to me as my uncle and I strongly believed that saved us.

It also made my delivery special in many ways because I had family around and I didn’t realise how much I needed that until I did. God truly knows what is best for us and he gives us what we need. If I had travelled, I would have been alone and miserable in the months leading up to delivery and after especially because of my previous experience. Staying at home to have my child made my pregnancy an amazing one because I was surrounded by so much love and kindness and I couldn’t have imagined a better experience. I had such peace and joy and I was just in awe of God.

Also God didn’t fail in his promise. I literally was delivered of a son before my labour pangs began just as he promised. I never had any labour pain. Also, the delivery was very quick. I was in and out of surgery is less than 30 minutes. I had said I didn’t want CS because of pain and recovery time but by the next day, I was walking and climbing stairs with very very minimal pain. I remember someone who came to visit me at the hospital telling me she couldn’t believe I had done surgery because I was so active and so chatty. To be honest I didn’t even know what a big deal this was until a few other people said the same thing. I later realised this in itself was a testimony. My doctors kept saying my recovery was the quickest they had ever seen. The pastor who conducted our naming ceremony also told me it was a complete testimony because I was serving people and walking around at the naming in my home. He said to me, with most women, the naming took place in the hospital due to the surgery and told me to praise God. Once again, God gave me exactly what he promised because he took away the pain from me.

God showed me such mercy and I cannot praise him enough. The process after delivery has been a blessing. It has been a learning experience and I have had my fair share of challenges but God has always come through for my husband and I. He has given supernatural strength and has shown me I am capable of so much more than I ever imagined. My husband has also been a real superstar. He has been my biggest support system, an amazing husband and even more awesome Father. God chose him specifically for me and I couldn’t have married someone else.  He has shown that ours is a true partnership and has made this experience easier on me as a woman and as a mother and I thank God for him.

My Son is 3 months today and I just want to praise God and give him a big shout out for being so so good to us. Watching him grow up daily is such a joy, he already has an interesting personality with the most beautiful smile that melts my heart. Of course when he cries, he puts his all into it and sometimes I just smile because I am realizing that even that is a gift some people are praying for. I have been wanting to share this for a while and I am glad I am able to today. There is so much I couldn’t even put into words and I will share as the Holy Spirit leads. To everyone who has supported us in one way or the other, may God bless you abundantly. To those who are still praying, trusting and believing God, please don’t give up. More importantly, begin to seek God for him, build a personal, loving and obedient relationship with the Holy Spirit. Find reasons to praise God through the disappointments and the waiting. Don’t let pain pull you away from God’s love, he is the best comforter, let him heal your heart.

I knew it was important that I shared this because while we are all celebrating the end of the story, it is important to know it was a journey. It is important to know that there was yet another test on the way to the testimony. It is important to know that through praise and thanksgiving, God unlocks doors and accelerates situations that look impossible. Through my tears, I learnt to praise God and he showed himself to be a Father whose love for me and my family is unfailing. I hope you will see that too in your lives. God bless you.

    God told me this……… God said that…….
    I really wish I too could hear God speak to me like this. I have prayed to Him to speak to me but nothing comes. Makes me have doubts sometimes. Your testimony brings tears to my eyes. I’m so happy you got your miracle at last. Your message is pure and simple: God is a loving Father and His heavenly plans for us supersede our earthly plans for ourselves. God bless you Tito for this timely message.

      God speaks to us in different ways. If you receive him , you have His spirit in yu and he would speak to you through his spirit in you. this is spiritual witness, whereby your spirit bears witness with the Holy Spirit. There are times when you pray to God and say you want to take a step and you ask Him for direction, later on you want to take this step but it feels like all of your insides are fighting. you are not comfortable on the inside, that is God’s Spirit bearing witness to your spirit telling you no. And vice versa when yiu just feel all of this joy and peace from inside that you can’t explain… then you just know that you know that God is saying. okay my child. this is the step.. it musnt be a loud voice from heaven before you realise God has spoken to you on any matter. Romans 8 v 15-16 15 For you have not received the spirit of bondage again to fear; but you have received the Spirit of adoption, whereby we cry, Abba, Father.
      The Spirit itself bears witness with our spirit, that we are the children of God!

      At a point in my life, I also wondered how people were able to hear his voice and questioned it. But when I hit rock bottom, and became in desperate need of him, he came for me. I sought him genuinely, and pressed on, striving to be more Christ like within my own understanding and conviction. He molded me, used people as tools to teach me (some very hard lessons chai!) to become the person he created me to be. And because of this i’m a waaaaaaay nicer/happier person than I could have been had I not found him. The thing about God’s voice is that it is not straight jacket. It’s more commonly a pressing on the heart….peace after making decisions( discernment) sometimes you hear a clear voice. It may seem quite abstract but take a leap of faith, seek him genuinely……you come as you are….just as you are…be transparent before your maker( the one who knows your beginning and end…who knew you as you were being molded in the dark within your mothers womb) and lay it all before him……AND WATCH HIM TAKE YOUR BREATH AWAY!!!! It’s okay to be confused and unsure, what’s important is that you seek genuinely and make out time to spend with him reading his word. watching sermons, talking to people of true faith . God’s blessings!

      September 28, 2016 at 2:25 pm

      What an amazing testimony. I’m thanking God for this family. I pray God will continue to be faithful to you and your husband as you both grow in Him.

      God is INDEED a good good father. He knows what’s best for us. I used to be one of those skeptical of people who said God spoke to them.. Infact, I had resentment towards God because I felt HE abandoned me. I would pray, won’t hear from Him, had a doubtful mind that HE’s not going to speak anyway because He favors some over others. I was in a deep hurtful, hopeless place.
      I hit rock bottom and was tired of being tired. I said, I don’t care anymore.
      I didn’t work for two months, I isolated myself that was how depressed I became.
      I would cry my eyes out of what I expected God to do in my life, I would try different strategies, I would apply faith(i thought i was) but there was another quiet voice on the side( the conviction got stronger as time went by), truthfully surrender your all to Me I have better plans in store and study My word because all you are doing right now is just you leaning on your own understanding. Then it progressed to turn off all social media, don’t talk as much, just listen, let go of your high earthly expectation, that relationship you are holding on to so intensely to make it work, let it go he’s not your husband and you are not his wife, do real praying and fasting(I never did complete fasting prior, I broke it before planned time or be distracted with other things like gossip, social media,).
      I reschedule myself, praised HIM not bcos of a physical blessing but because HE is GOD. I prayed to HIM to help me yield to Him more not my own understanding. To seriously hear from God, you have to let go of your own understanding, expectation, belief, fear, etc Just surrender your heart, mind and watch Him speak like never before.
      If I tell you that the way I hear from God now, It sounds cliche but HE does speak. When God speaks, it’s not necessarily a loud voice, when your mind is at peace, clear, in communion with the Holy Spirit, you will literally hear strong conviction and voices even as where should I go or do, He will drop things in your heart. And times I’ve listened thoroughly, It’s

      It’s been a blessing to me. I’ve seen HIS grace shown in areas that I used to be pray about and it happens so peacefully. He does it HIs way now, and I haven’t been disappointed. He gives me strength, wisdom, discernment through life challenges.

      God is always speaking, the question is are we listening, do we recognize his voice or are we distracted by the thousand other things around us that mask His voice. I encourage you to draw close to him and he will draw close to you James 4:8. know his word for yourself, spend quiet time with him and pray. You only recognize the voice of someone you are close to.

      Praying for you hun,

      There are different ways God speaks. Ask Him to teach you to understand Him and stay away from any spiritual noise (things that cloud our spirit and make us “deaf” to His voice). Don’t give up. God speaks. You most likely will never hear an audible voice in your life but He could speak through strong impressions on your heart, painting pictures in your mind (asleep or awake), putting the exact same thought/idea in your heart and in the heart(s) of others around you who you respect/love and who are spiritually awake, etc.

      Dear, if you notice, she had scriptures for almost every experience. We are more tuned in to hear God speak if we commit to regularly studying the word of God. That is one way God always speaks to us…and because He loves you, there is not a situation in your life that He has not a written word for..and the Holy Spirit will bring these words to your heart and direct you into the specifics. We don’t get it right all the time (the specifics I mean), like you noticed she was insisting on natural birth but still, she held on to the written word of God and God already catered for even her “insisting on some specifics”initially. #Blessings!

    Trust in the Lord with all your heart and lean not on your own understanding.. Bolatito your faith has inspired me as I have been wavering in my trust in God r a while now but you have reminded to stand firm in his faithfulness as Heswall do what he has said he will do… I wish you all the happiness in the world… the love of God truly transforms and makes new..

      Ada, I am happy you are inspired. Don’t ever waver. When the doubts come remember

      “2 Thessalonians 3:3 But the Lord is faithful. He will establish you and guard you against the evil one.” Emphasis on FAITHFUL.

      He is faithful to every promise he has made….and what has he promised? That
      “Mark 11:24
      Therefore I tell you, whatever you ask for in prayer, believe that you have received it, and it will be yours.”

      The very moment you waver, you call God a liar… that you fear he won’t fulfill his promise.
      He will.

    Hmmm Bolatito dear your testimony is really inspiring to say the least. Sometimes i am also doubtful whether God hears my prayers. But i have also seen God answer little prayers in my life. That said, I have a reassurance through this your testimony that God is still in the business of blessing people beyond every doubt. May God keep you and yours in his infinite grace. Shalom!

    Congrats Tito. I am very happy for you. You changed me life you know. The day I saw you on ‘Moments’ really awakened my spirituality because I loved the way you love God and decided I will be the same. May God keep you guys and Joshua and may your relationship with God continue to inspire.

    Awesome! Is this testimony not meant for me like this? Been looking up to God for children, yet I seem so far away from him. It’s time to let go and let God. I’ve picked names already for twins yet I’ve read today the importance of leaving even this most minute detail to Him. I enjoyed reading about the early morning praise also esp cos I can sleep for Africa. Hmmm, father have mercy.
    God bless Bolatito Bez And Joshua. God keep your testimony and continually uphold your home in Jesus name!

    Thanks be to God who always cause us to triumph in Christ Jesus. I bless God for your courage sis and may the good Lord continue to perfect that which He’s started in your family, as He also gives everyone reading your testimony the courage and grace to believe in Him for signs and wonders

    May joy never cease from your home. I remember reading about this loss of your daughter in 2015. God answers prayers, even in the seemingly little things-like getting a free ride home,lol.

    Recovering from CS is not a joke. I was with my niece for a week while my sister was in the hospital because of complications from the tear…it was opening and she was bleeding. She got discharged a few days after the surgery and I took a week off to be with them before our mum comes for omugo. On the day I arrived, her bed was stained with blood and we thought she didn’t fix her sanitary towel properly even though she said she wasn’t supposed to be bleeding that much. At about past 10pm, we noticed that the wound was opening (her second CS) and her husband had to take her back to the hospital. I was home with the baby, my older niece (4+) and my sister’s aunt-in-law. We got to the hospital the next day and the nurses (her colleagues) were crying that what they saw yesterday was terrible. My sister’s intestine were practically coming out and they had to force them back in. There was no surgeon on duty to carry out an emergency surgery. God gave my sister the strength to still believe in him because instead of her crying and wailing, she was encouraging her colleagues that nothing will happen to her. She kept reminding them of cases they have had in their hospital. To cut long story short, she was operated upon again. On the day of naming, she came from the hospital and went back afterwards. It was a trying period for us but we give God the glory for always showing up. My cute niece will be a year old in November.
    Sowwwwiii, for the long comment.

    God is amazing! I also pray for a painless delivery and I know that won’t feel any pain during contractions. Thank you for sharing this with us. May God’s name be blessed forever. And thank you too for the Isaiah 66 vs 7-9 I can’t believe that I’m just seeing this verses for the first time.

    I am so connected to this testimony. I shed tears reading it. I’m a struggling Christian who is trying to reconnect and find my way and I just marvel at how our Father in heaven connects with your family. I have to admit, I am a little jealous. God bless you, may He bless your home, may He put you forever in the mood of unending praise. I lack words when I see young believers…it gives me hope in this man’s world that our GOD’s grace still abounds and as we seek HIM we shall find joy. GOD bless you for using your voice to draw people closer to Him. You will never know lack Bolatito. I decree that it IS well with you. God will remember you for everything you have done for the kingdom and reward you bountifully. Greater years lie ahead for you. For your son Joshua, I decree that He will be a shining light in his generation. He shall be a witness for Christ. He will be a blessing to all who are opportune to know Him. I pay that God not only adds years to his life, but life to his years. It is well with your family. AMEN.

    I am so blessed and awed by your testimony. And this goes how far God is keen on keeping unto his word. He said challenge me by my word, and see if I wont do the things beyond your expectation. The word of God is life. @Babygurl, trust me God has spoken to you a thousand times, the key to knowing it is, His voice is very peaceful and almost silent, like you have a confirmation of hearing it, may be after not obeying the voice. Also, situations push you to be closer to God, to want to pray more, and read HIS WORD. Always, ask that you need Him to speak to you, genuinely..and you could be sure HE would harken unto your voice. Seek and you shall find, BE STILL AND KNOW THAT I AM GOD..God bless us all

    When we can’t see God anywhere near our prayers,that’s the BEST time he’s at work for us,he sometimes makes choices for us that we can’t understand but at the very end,all turns out for our good.Thanks be to God our perfect father,congrats to you Tito and Bez,God bless Joshua.

    Thanks for this testimony Tito. I am a muslim but I totally feel connected to this story. Asking God for help, putting our faith in him and believing in him to get things done, has proven over the years to be the BEST WAY! Thank you again for sharing your story, may Joshua be a constant source of joy to your home!

    It’s really inspiring and refreshing to read a testimony. No doubt there’s still faith in our generation, people are still trusting in God and most importantly, God is still coming through for his children. Like Matthew 6:33 says, God first, other things will be added.

    Tito, you are blessed woman to have found God for yourself. May your testimony continue to put the devil to shame. God bless ur home, Little Josh will grow up to love and serve God, when he reaches the age of accountability, may he choose Christ.

    Lots of love woman of faith.

    One very important point you made in this testimony is the need to be quiet about certain blessings/good things in your life. Social media tends to put people under pressure to broadcast and share every little thing happening in there life, which often times breeds jealousy from so called friends.

    I’ve waited for this testimony…. was so glad when i heard Tito’s birth news. I read the loss of your daughter, I totally connected and stayed strong for you even though I didn’t know you one on one….. like one of the commentators, I envy your relationship with God. But I love the way you talk about Him.. not caring what anyone will think or say. You have no idea what glorifying God in the eyes of the world does for Him and for you. Thank you for sharing Tito… God keep you and yours!!

    This was also very tough because I remember someone saying to me that God can’t tell anyone to stay and have his or her child in Nigeria. I found that funny on so many levels because my daughter passed away in the states and if anyone understood that it was not a function of where you give birth but the grace of God… WORD!!!

    I love this testimony, and I love the comments too. As someone commented earlier God wants to speak to us even more than we want to, it may seem like He is distant but do not give up, there are so many things in the world to take us far from God or ridicule what it means to be a christian but when we seek the Lord we will discover a wonderful relationship with him.
    A book I read by Kenneth Hagin helped me, ‘How to be led by the spirit of God’ it rally helped me understand the Holy Spirit.

    To truly hear the voice of God, you need to first have total silence within you.
    In a primary school, the teacher cant teach anything till all the students keep quiet.
    It is the same thing with God speaking to us. Till we become still and silent, only then shall we hear the voice of the lord.
    So all those random thoughts and “parliament-style” sessions you have running through your mind 24/7, put an end to it. Be Still……Be completely silent…..and slowly the voice of God will emerge.

    I join Bolatito and Emmanuel in blessing the name of the Lord because this God is too good oh!
    God is great and greatly to be praised. May all who sincerely seek Him and a blessing such as this beautiful child find Him in Jesus name.

    Congrats Tito….. I put to bed 2 weeks ago your story and mine are similar in so many ways from losing a pregnancy, having revelation about another pregnancy ,praying for a name, the way your labour and delivery took place etc. God be praised for the miracle of the birth of our sons. That which the Lord has began in our lives and that of our kids,he will complete in Jesus name.At some point while reading this testimony,I literally pinched myself to be sure I wasnt replaying all the events that took place in my life recently

    Congrats Tito…. Had to pinch myself to be sure I wasnt replaying my story in my head.. I gave birth 2weeks ago my story and yours are similar in so many ways from the loss of a previous pregnancy, to concieving and knowing through a revelation (dream) ,asking and getting a name from God, even to the prayers for a painless delivery,the contractions,the way you gave birth and even getting back on your feet earlier than expected. God is indeed faithful ……. God bless our sons
