It is very good
Thursday, June 17, 2010
I've been thinking about my mom a lot lately.
My mom likes words.
I think they mean a lot to her.
I think my mom was blessed to have not just one, but four children.
Not because we're such wonderful kids. But because I just can't imagine how amazing it is that God's hand is working within your very being.
As it is, I often have trouble imagining God is with me all the time. How much more that God is not only with me, but He's within
me, designing every detail of my baby.
"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". - Psalm 139:13-14
I hope I'll be a mom someday.
It is a wonderful privilege God has given exclusively to women.
That He would come so close to us.
A man will just not be able to comprehend it.
You know how they say a pregnant woman has a glow about her?
I believe it's because she's in the presence of God who is constantly at work within her.
But the Bible also talks about Moses' face being radiant after being in God's presence (Exodus 34).
And there's no denying that God is certainly the One who has placed His fingerprints on every single child in their mother's womb.
That means me.
That means you.
And that means my mom as well.
I know my mom has been fearfully and wonderfully made.
I hope she knows that too.
(Maybe I'll print a copy of this for her)
I've also had thoughts of all the moms of children born with disabilities.
If any of you are reading this, you know what?
God has planned and designed your child to be exactly the way he/she is.
And they have also been fearfully and wonderfully and beautifully made.
God sees them, and thinks that it is very good that they are as such.
He made them, after all. =)
They are absolutely, without a doubt, covered with the fingerprints of God.
The one who is blind,
The one who is deaf,
The one who is in a wheelchair,
The one who is mute,
The one with Cerebral Palsy,
The one with Down's,
The one with Autism,
The one with Epilepsy,
The one with Trisomy 13,
The one with with ADHD,
The one with Asperger's,
The one with Dyslexia ,
The one with whatever-disability-that-I-have-forgotten.
God. Made. Each. One.
And God saw everything that he had made, and behold,
it was very good - Genesis 1:31
