A little bit of wisdom...
When I was reading my bible yesterday afternoon, I stumbled across this verse in Ecclesiastes. It's one that particularly touches me now because I am experiencing the miracle of GOD creating a life in my own body...but also because I think that this is something that many people struggle with. "Understanding" GOD. This is something that I came to terms with a long time ago, and helped me relax a little, because human nature does make me want to "understand" every little thing and make sense of why this or that happens....why the world can be so cruel and unfair....etc. The truth is, those are things that we will never understand, at least not this side of heaven. Our GOD is way bigger and more complex than the tiny box we try to fit him into. All I know is what my heart tells me and what I watch him do in my own life. Even when things go completely awry from my human perspective, he has a plan and a purpose and a time for everything! This miracle of life he is weaving together in my womb is far beyond my understanding and though I might vent from time to time about certain discomforts of pregnancy...MAKE NO MISTAKE! I KNOW HOW BLESSED I AM TO EXPERIENCE IT! I wouldn't trade it for anything! I would do it again even if the symptoms were ten times worse! We waited a long time for this and I will not let anything rob me of my joy and greatful spirit! Going from not knowing whether we'd ever be able to conceive to a positive pregnancy test to feeling a living being moving around inside of me...I am overwhelmed! I thank GOD for this little boy every single day! Every little kick to the bladder means the world to me! We both feel so TRULY BLESSED. This little boy has no idea how loved he is already! By us and our families!
Anyway, the verse is Ecclesiastes 11:5
"As you do not know the path of the wind, or how the body is formed in a mother's womb, so you cannot understand the work of GOD, the Maker of all things."
I know I haven't been blogging much about anything but pregnancy and baby, but as you can imagine we are over the moon waiting for our little boy. Plus things have just been so busy and I haven't been feeling too well, but I do intend to get back to regular blogging at some point :)
