I have been a mom for over 13 months (longer if you count the 9 months of pregnancy) and I’ve always recognized what a miracle it is to grow a child inside of you and it’s another miracle to give birth!
Until this past weekend, feeling the very first flutters inside of me from baby number two, I never truly realized just how spectacular that is!
Sounds crazy, I know, but seriously….THERE IS A TINY HUMAN GROWING INSIDE OF ME THAT WILL SOON BE A WALKING, SQUEALING, BABBLING CHILD THAT I WILL HOLD IN MY ARMS!
What a miracle! What a creative, amazing, life-giving God we serve!
Whenever you’re having a rough day, chasing a toddler around or trying to calmly convince your 10 month old to stop screaming, remember that the God who holds the universe, also holds you. He also holds that precious child that you know and love, even when he is acting ridiculous.
Maybe being a mom helps me to see My God in a bigger, more real way!
I don’t even have to go into detail about how incredible it is that my body produces milk…the exact source of life that my child needs from the moment he is born!
Before being a mom, I was just a woman who had breasts and a uterus.
Now, as a mom, I’m a woman with a food source and a baby growing machine!
And I have learned how important it is to take care of my precious body, so I can live long to see them grow up, and feed them and teach them!
Maybe being a mom helps me to realize the importance of how intricately God designed our bodies!
What’s even crazier…is how much I love my little boy, and little baby on the way. But even though I can’t even comprehend how to love something more…I know God loves us even more than that!
Can you wrap your mind around that?
