A very dear family friend is expecting their grand-baby any day now. As it is the way in today’s medicine, they know it will be a little girl. Our friend had three boys and their first grand-baby was a boy. You can imagine the excitement, knowing there will be a little girl in the midst of all these manly men! Little girls with their frills and lace, their fluttering from one dress up outfit to another and their little bossy attitudes wrap themselves around our lives and our hearts.
Psalm 119: 73-75 (Message) says: With Your very own hands You formed me; now breathe Your wisdom over me so I can understand You. When they see me waiting, expecting Your Word, those who fear You will take heart and be glad. I can see now, God, that Your decisions are right; Your testing has taught me what’s true and right.
At this exact moment God is forming this little girl who will be loved and treasured by her parents. He’s placing the finishing touches into her small body. He will breathe life into her at any minute. God’s decision to bring this little pink bundle into the World at this exact time was His ultimate plan. He already knows the direction her life-journey will take. He’s counted her every breath and knows every word she will ever speak.
Welcome, Little One! Remember your moments in heaven. Remember who formed you and breathed life into your lungs. We will pray for you along your life-journey. Take heart and be glad! Trust God to show you the wisdom to find what is right and true. Take time to dance in the fields of grace.
