Laurie Idahosa: How God Saved My First Son, Feb

This week I was reminded once again just how much God loves me and how He has given his angels charge over my family and I.

My heart is deeply full of gratitude as I share this testimony with you.

God has blessed my husband and I with three boys (Feb, 7 Nate, 4 and Judah 2). On Sunday night I was putting the younger two to bed, when I heard a loud crash coming from the kitchen. The sound of it alone was frightening; running towards the source of the crash I found my kitchen covered in dust and broken glass, with a cabinet that was previously attached to the wall, on the floor!

Immediately, I started shouting for Feb Jr. (my oldest son). “Feb, Feb, where are you???!! Are you okay?” One of my assistants at home, Eunice answered me, “Feb is okay, we are all okay.”

I started thanking God for His divine protection, amazed at the destruction in the kitchen. We were truly shaken by the thought of how bad it could have been if the cabinet had fallen on someone.

As we were praising God, Feb Jr. comes over to meet me with a stream of blood coming down his face! He was clearly traumatized and shaking and looked me in my eyes, “Mommy, am I going to die?”

Before I even knew the extent of his injuries, my answer to him came from a position of faith. “Feb, you are not going to die. You are going to be okay.”

For a moment, I was in disbelief, I had already started thanking God that nobody was injured, and now, I see that my precious boy is bleeding profusely from his head.

I applied pressure on the wound to stop the bleeding and called my Mother in Love to ask for her assistance in getting me someone to take us to the hospital as the injury looked serious. Fortunately, my brother in love, Rev. Wale Ajayi came running to the house in his bare feet with our dear friend Shadrach Ruwan who was visiting at the time.

They helped carry Feb into the car and we rushed off to Faith Mediplex Hospital. Shortly after we arrived, the hospital was full of people praying for Feb and looking for how to help. To my amazement, even my mother in love, Archbishop Margaret Idahosa left her home, at that late hour of the night and stood by our side till Feb’s treatment was done. She is a grandmother in deed.

God is such a Great God! Although Feb Jr. needed a few stitches to close up the laceration on his head, he is otherwise perfectly fine! God saved him from what could have been a truly heartbreaking story to tell.

After he calmed down from the incident, he explained to me what had actually happened. His narrative alone made me fall to my knees in gratitude to God. He explained that he had climbed up onto the counter top to look for a snack in the upper cabinet. While doing this, his shirt got caught on the cabinet handle and caused him to lose his balance. He fell from the counter top and dragged the whole cabinet down on him.

Thank you Jesus, for your divine protection! You keep and preserve your children. I’m forever grateful to the King of Kings and the Lord of Lords for keeping a smile on our faces and for protecting my children.

I am quite sure that the Angels of the Lord cushioned the impact of that cabinet and saved the life of our son.

Feb Jr. woke up feeling just a slight headache but spent his morning happy, playing video games and eating Mommy’s pancakes. Just to be on the safe side, I have had other doctors examine him and they all say the same thing. “Feb is okay, all the Glory belongs to God.”

What an awesome God we serve!

All morning, I have been meditating on Psalms 91 and giving God praise! We have so much to be thankful for!
