“For you formed my inward parts; you knitted me together in my mother’s womb. I praise you, for I am fearfully and wonderfully made. Wonderful are your works; my soul knows it very well. My frame was not hidden from you, when I was being made in secret, intricately woven in the depths of the earth” (Psalm 139:13-15).
What a wonderful world when we see that God is good and gracious to give us children, and then to give children to our children: undeserving and unbelievable grace and enjoying every precious minute!
My Prayer: Our Father in heaven, we give you thanks for life, for the wisdom to not only number our days but also to humbly think about the days of children. Life seems so long when you’re young – as it should. Give us this day our daily dose of love for you and our children. May Jesus Christ become all-the-richer to our eyes as we see ourselves as children of God and brothers and sisters of Christ by faith. And it is by faith that we still live and move and have our very existence this day. Not all is right in the world – not all is right in our hearts. But you Oh Lord reign forever and ever and one day all the world will be made right. Until then, remind us often of your steadfast love with the works of your hand. I see that I hold a wonderful work of your hands in mine. I’m speechless with your power and I’m in awe of what you can do with a word. What kind of a Beautiful God you must be to make a child?! I can’t wait to see you Jesus.
