Psalm of David!

As I wonderfully pray for my unborn grandchild, I hold close to my heart the words in the Psalm of David. What we cannot see, God can see so perfectly.  That fact that God knows and cares for children in the womb means that God’s concern for life begins at conception. It means that God’s people have a responsibility to also know and care for children in the womb.

It also reminds me of my son, Craig, verse 16, “all the days ordained for me were written in your book, before one of them came to be”.  God’s perfect knowledge extends not only before you were born, but also for all the days of your life. God blessed our family with Craig’s life, we look forward to the blessings God will provide with our grandchild.  God is good!

Psalms 139 (NIV)

13 For you created my inmost being;
    you knit me together in my mother’s womb.
14 I praise you because I am fearfully and wonderfully made;
    your works are wonderful,
    I know that full well.
15 My frame was not hidden from you
    when I was made in the secret place,
    when I was woven together in the depths of the earth.
16 Your eyes saw my unformed body;
    all the days ordained for me were written in your book
    before one of them came to be.
17 How precious to me are your thoughts,[a] God!
    How vast is the sum of them!
18 Were I to count them,
    they would outnumber the grains of sand—
    when I awake, I am still with you.
