Babies!

September 22, 2008

Our close friends (Trevor and Paige) just found out they are having a baby. God is knitting together a baby in Paige’s womb that is being fearfully and wonderfully made.

What a joy babies are. They remind us of how great and mighty God is that He can create life out of nothing.

The whole concept of parenthood blows my mind: we are able to feel how God feels about us by the way we feel about our children.

One of the aspects of human relationships is that they show us how God relates to us. Husbands get to see what it is like to love someone so much that you would lay down your life for them, as our King laid down His life for us.

The world gets to see how Jesus relates to His church when we see how a husband and a wife relate to each other.

As dads, we get a glimpse of what it’s like to have a little fragile creature in our care. We see a little baby that can’t take care of itself; a little baby that needs to be taught how to live; a little baby that needs us to protect it from the evils of the world; a little baby that doesn’t know it’s right hand from the left.

Sometimes there is a propensity for us to move on to the next stage of life. This isn’t the first time I have said this, but: embrace your season of life. Love your families. Enjoy God’s goodness and blessing. Our King is good to us and enjoying Him is sweet.

Thank you, God, for the joy of babies. Thank God for letting us experience joy and happiness. How we long to enter into Your fullness of joy!
