Behold, Children are a heritage from the LORD!
Behold, children are a heritage from the LORD,
The fruit of the womb is a reward.
Like arrows in the hand of a warrior,
So are the children of one’s youth.
Happy is the man who has his quiver full of them;
They shall not be ashamed,
But shall speak with their enemies in the gate. (Psalm 127:3-5)
My 40 week journey has concluded with the birth of my beautiful baby girl. As I was in the labor and delivery room right after my daughter was born...the last 40 weeks flashed before my eyes. I reflected on all the love and mercy the Lord has demonstrated to me and my family through this journey.
The last 40 weeks were filled with many lessons. I received ministration that He knew was necessary for me to continue strong in my walk in Him. He showed me with renewed eyes the spiritual warrior in my husband and the loving heart of my tween. Both allowed themselves to be vessels which the Lord ministered to me through their example.
I have seen once again His faithful love. Love that heals and sets free. A pure and unconditional love that can never be compared to anything that I can ever ask or imagine. I now continue on another journey. I am confident that my Celestial Father will be holding my hand every step of the way.
Thank you Father for your Son Jesus and for your beautiful and precious Holy Spirit!
