Worship Wednesday- Nobody Like You Lord

August 16, 2017

Worship me for who I am, not for what I can do for you.

I know this might hurt…but….Ya’ll, God wants MORE from us than a prayer about our fertility. God wants more from us than ONLY worshipping Him when things are going well. God wants MORE (like ALL of us) regardless of the reading of a pregnancy test. I don’t know why this is on my heart this morning (God literally woke me up at 4:23 with this post!) but I just feel like I have to tell you to dig into your Word and discover God’s character & nature. God wants you to know HIM and worship Him for who he is. Not for what you want Him to do for you.

Ya’ll! I’m preaching to myself too! I actually attended a house prayer night around the end of 2015; where I was encouraged by a complete stranger to get in my Word and learn WHO God was and what his Word said about him. I’d spent a lot of time prior to that listing to podcasts, “sermons,” and teachings that were not sound doctrine. Unfortunately, that led to me having a incorrect view of God. I felt like God didn’t love me because I was fighting this battle of  infertility. I felt like I had done ‘so much work,” for God and I deserved this answered prayer. LOL! I am so thankful for that night. This entire journey to motherhood has taught me so much about God.

From learning that He is God and Good EVEN when it doesn’t feel good. (Psalms 107:1) That he LOVES me forever, and his not answering my prayer in my time doesn’t change that. That he will be glorified in this, and work it out for my good. (Romans 8:28) That he is THE great Provider, Shepard, Protector, Healer, Comforter, Father, and so much more. (Matthew 6:33, Hebrews 13:20, Pslams 91, Isiah 53:5, 2 Corinthians 1:3-5, Romas 8:15) I want to encourage you ALL to get into your Bible. For yourself. And Let Him speak to you, through what He has already spoken. We have the Word of God, yet we neglect it and pick it up as our last hope. We have to do better ladies. God wants our heart, our lives, our desires… God wants our worship and praise ALL of the time. Even when you get that negative, the procedure fails, or the adoption falls through. When you don’t ovulate or when you conceive.

God wants to be God in your life, he wants a relationship with you. He doesn’t want to be your fairy godparent.

As you listen to this song, and worship.. I encourage you to just fix your mind on who God is. His character and his nature. WHO His word says He is. WHO He has already proven himself to be in your life before. Don’t focus on what you want him to do. Focus on HIM.

Raye the doula was everything I needed this first time around breastfeeding. I’m a mom of 3, ages 3,2, and now a 9 week old baby boy. I didn’t get the opportunity to have such an empowering, and proactive lactation specialist with my first two. I have inverted nipples but now they both are completely pulled out. The techniques she gave and advice are exactly what I needed. Before, I started using her- in my 1st week postpartum, I got mastitis, I had a fever and more... Raye provided that’s when I was able to get some good advice and support about relieving the clogged milk ducts and gave me help positioning to make breastfeeding easier. Once you get that infection, you feel horrible, but she helped make the experience as comfortable as possible. Don’t miss out of booking her, even if you may not have any problems with breastfeeding like I did. As a postpartum mom, you always need someone in your corner to assist and be there for you. Get a team and on your team have her, Raye the doula. Larisa Cleaves, Mom of 3, Wife, Business Owner

After years of receiving defeating news of miscarriage coupled with countless negative pregnancy test, as well as medical providers doubting my chances of pregnancy with a history of pcos, my blessing was planted in my womb.  When we found out I was pregnant (and taking a test 10 times due to disbelief) it was very important for us to have support. Raven communicated with me during times of infertility, provided resources and suggestions so I just knew I wanted her to be my doula after receiving news we were officially pregnant. When Raye initially mentioned she may not be able to commit due to other obligations and I was so devastated. Inevitably, I contracted with another doula and terminated that contract as soon as I discovered Raye was accepting doula clients. During my initial consultation call with Raven I immediately recognized the switch was the best thing to do for ME.   From prenatal visit to labor and delivery, my entire birth process seemed so personalized. I appreciated that Raven frequently helped me normalize  my concerns and feelings while discouraging all negative thoughts on pregnancy.  During labor, Raye not only supported me but also my husband. She was able to take over and allowed him to rest which he is still appreciative of. Her counter pressure techniques really helped me deal with contractions as they were getting more intense. Now that I have transitioned to post partum, Raye continues to provide support and check ins. It truly takes a village & I am grateful to have had Raven as my doula, and support.

Working with Raye is a dream!!! She was extremely responsive and helpful. On one of my strands the sizing was a little off. I was able to send it back and she got me right. I absolutely love her as a person and as an entrepreneur! She is definitely on my short list for doulas as well. She’s amazing and definitely is mastering all her crafts.

Raven Thomas helped me in my TTC journey by giving me knowledge on what was actually going on with my body and helping me understand my hormones. She educated me on hormone imbalance and the negative affects  that it  has on the body. Raven's  outstanding wisdom lead to me getting pregnant. She walked me through my pregnancy with healthy ways of eating,books and managing my emotions in a healthy way to promote a wonderful stress free pregnancy. During my Postpartum phase she answered all of my questions for breastfeeding, and how to still rest with multiple kids for recovery, any issue I had she made sure she gave me the emotional support as well as a game plan to overcome my issues I was having. I highly recommend her for all of your Doula needs and brestfeeding services. She has such a heart for women and wellness!!

What can I really say about this woman right here? She is my shero, my personal nurse lol. When I was battling with infertility she was right alongside  of me helping me to fight and to not give up hope. She encourages me , prayed for me and helped me to loose weight and get healthy for my miracle that we knew was coming.  Almost two years later here I am with my miracle baby . Although it’s been rough with so many scares in the beginning , she’s still alongside of me coaching me and helping me through my fears . I love this woman !. -Jasmine
