Life

This article comes on the eve of a new arrival for our family.  We are so very excited about this little daughter that will be showing her face very soon.  We cannot wait to see her, kiss her, hold her, feed her, and yes, even change her diapers.  As she is inside my womb I cannot help but praise God for her.  He is the only one that creates life and gives life.  I was able to conceive each of my children without any human intervention, but even with human intervention babies are only created by Him.

Psalm 139:14  “I will praise thee; for I am fearfully and wonderfully made: marvellous are thy works; and that my soul knoweth right well.”

It makes me sad to hear people say that they created their children.  I hear it all the time on television, facebook, and even at the supermarket.  I know that if the time came and I could not get pregnant when I wanted, there is no way I could make it happen.  Even most fertility clinics, for sake of their reputation, state that they can only do so much, and a higher power has to take over.  If that were not the case, everyone that walks in the door would get pregnant on the first try.  Knowing that God is the only one that creates and gives life, makes each miracle so special.  I know a line on a stick revealed the truth to me, then several weeks later, on a ultrasound machine, there was a beautiful little heartbeat.  I could never have done that!!  When I deliver my baby in a few days, more than just a baby will be delivered, there will be an umbilical cord, a placenta, and fluid.  All of that I had nothing to do with, I did not put it there, and I did not cause it to grow and/or nourish my baby.  Sure, I ate and drank lots during the pregnancy, probably a lion’s share, but that sure doesn’t make a baby, or else many obese Americans walking around would be ready to deliver at any time!

Job 31:15 “Did not he that made me in the womb make him? and did not one fashion us in the womb?”

God is the only Creator and Giver of life.  Many people today will deliver a baby that they absolutely would give their life for.  Many people this day will give birth to the love of their life.  Many people this day will endure a lot of pain in exchange for a lot of joy.  Few will look up to Heaven, fall on their knees, and thank God for this miraculous precious gift straight from the heart of God.  Few people will acknowledge everyday of their child’s life that God blessed their family with that child and only by God’s grace do they have that little life in their home.  Few people today will love and nurture that child, teaching them about God and His love.

Psalm 127:3 “Lo, children are an heritage of the LORD: and the fruit of the womb is his reward.”

“Thank you, Father, for the wonderful gift of life.  I know and acknowledge that all life is in Your control and Your hands.  You give life and You take life.  You control every breath.  Help me to be the mother of these children that teaches them that You are a BIG God, You are the ONLY God, and mommy and daddy were handed this free gift of children.  Thank you for choosing me to be their mother and placing them in my womb.  Thank you for this little girl we have yet to see.  Thank you for the love we already have for her.  Thank you for wonderfully creating her while we were busy living life.  Thank you for knitting her together while I was sleeping, eating and tending to life.  I cannot wait to see her face and give You all the glory! Amen.”
