God is amazing! All day today I have been in wonder just thinking about scripture I read with my boys during breakfast. James 1:18 ‘He chose to give us birth through the word of truth, that we might be a kind of first fruits of all he created. NIV In the Message it states that ‘He brought us to life using the true Word, showing us off as the crown of all his creatures’.
This brings back the images and feelings I had when I was pregnant with my oldest son. As my tummy grew and I became more aware of my child’s movements I became aware that I would have to go through labor. The first few seconds of this thought brought on a wave of fear but I just reminded myself that thousands of women before me gave birth and I would too. I would give birth. And then when I held my son in my arms, I felt so full that I just wanted to show him off. My love for this child was more than anything I had ever known before.
But God. He had a choice. He could of left me dead in my sin. Not knowing the truth of Jesus. But in all of His glory, at the right time, He showed me His kindness which lead me to repentance. His love for me is more than anything I have ever known, more than my mind can comprehend. God is amazing!
