Way Bigger

We had 2 births over the Thanksgiving holiday… 2 precious souls delivered into our family. One through our niece and another grand-daughter through our daughter-in-law and son. I never grow weary of baby pictures, baby news, sweet smells and little noises. My mind races through each of my own labor and delivery stories. It feels so good to hold a little one in my arms again.

Such struggles to get here after 9 long months of waiting, but every mother says it’s worth the pain. I felt the same way… probably why I kept having babies. It’s a joy and a thrill to partner with Creator God. It’s both awesome and humbling to be used in such a way.

These new child-sprouts in our family tree are part of something way bigger than they can imagine. Much like I am part of God’s amazing plan. He did all the work, yet I receive all the blessing. He lets me participate as a living stone in His spiritual temple (The Bride). Like each believer – just a small, but valuable piece in something much larger than I can possibly fathom.

“you also, as living stones, are being built up as a spiritual house for a holy priesthood, to offer spiritual sacrifices that are acceptable to God through Jesus Christ.” 1 Peter 2:5

Jesus alone makes me acceptable, gives me His name and a place in His family… as God’s child. How do I process this? It’s more than my head can really comprehend. And yet just like this new little bundle, I don’t have to understand it all – I can just rest in His arms and know He loves me.

“Oh, the depth of the riches, both of the wisdom and knowledge of God! How unsearchable are His judgments and unfathomable His ways!” Romans 11:33
