Let us see your miracles again; let our children see your glory at work.
Psalm 90:16 (NLT)
To say I’m distracted today is an understatement. I’m writing this from a hospital waiting room as my youngest daughter labors to bring her first child into the world. Things are progressing slowly…much too slowly for her (and our ) liking. We can hardly wait to meet this wee girl child.
Every baby is a miracle Psalm 139, yes? Creator God selects height, hair and skin color, eye and nose shape. He chooses DNA and puts fingerprints in place. He designs the various systems—digestive, circulatory, muscular, and nervous, to mention a few. He constructs brains with ventricles and hearts with valves, and veins and arteries that carry blood to and from the mighty little pump.
Medical textbooks galore explain the biological details, but I don’t need to read them in order to know that a baby is a miracle. Everything about an infant declares God’s creative genius and glory.
I am, in faith, believing that Kim and her husband David will soon cradle their little miracle. Would you pray with me for a safe delivery?
PS: As I wait for Kim to deliver her daughter, I recall a doctor encouraging me to abort her when I was six weeks pregnant with her. Today would not be happening if I’d taken his advice. Here’s the story published by Focus on the Family: “Problem Pregnancy or Precious Life?”
