CBN.com Noah Chase is sweet, funny, and he’s simply delightful. But there is one more way to describe Noah -- he’s a miracle.
"I knew in my heart I was made to be a mother. That was the desire of my heart to have a child," says Kriste Chase.
But after failed attempts to conceive, Kriste was diagnosed with Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome.
"The doctor also said that even if he could get us pregnant, the chances were that either myself or the baby wouldn’t make it through,” she recalls. “I knew that God created me, and God doesn’t make mistakes, but I viewed myself as a mistake because my body couldn’t do what it needed to do to have a baby.”
“I was devastated because that was one of the points that I lost all hope. And Chris [Kriste's husband] was so good about everything. Chris kept the faith, and when I was angry at God, Chris would stop and pray. And when I didn’t have words to pray, Chris would just pray for us. He never lost faith.”
”I regularly watch The 700 Club, and I’ve heard the different Words of Knowledge. You know, I just chalk it up to... there’s someone out there, that’s very general. Pat was giving a Word of Knowledge about someone who had my condition who was going to be healed, who was barren, and who's going to have a child. I never really believed it all that much. But as Pat was speaking that day, the Lord was speaking to my heart at the same time, and I knew in my soul that He was speaking to me, and that I was going to be healed and have a child,” says Kriste.
Shortly after she received this amazing word, Kriste started to have a cycle again. Then, one month she was late and decided to take a pregnancy test.
"I took the test and it was positive. I could not believe it. And I started screaming.”
Today, every time Kriste and Chris look at the face of their precious son, they are reminded of one thing: "There is hope. God answers prayers and He is faithful," she says.
