To our baby, God loves you more than we do!

Feb 27, 2019

Imagine turning on your tv and the headline reads" mother sacrifices her baby for disruptive neighbour." Anyone watching the news and reading this headline would be utterly disgusted and upset. The thought of a mother killing her child for anyone is ludicrous. But God in His love did that by sending His son for sinful people. A love in action displayed with no boundaries.

To Our Baby, 

It started with a week of gas, gas, gas and more gas. It was in the midst of committing myself to keeping active and healthy. So the random spurs of bloating and sudden headaches were all new to me.

TMI I know!

A few weeks later when we finally found out you would grace our lives we were so ecstatic, I could not help but think about the goodness of God. I could not wrap my head around how or why an all knowing God would see us fit to be parents.

Slowly the joy of you being mine dwindled into fear. For the first few months all I could think about was your little precious life getting through the pivotal moments of development.  So as I clung to my fears so tightly, God reminded me of His precious words so gracefully.

I remember one night laying in bed and the words of Psalms 23 dropped in my spirit. I turned to my night stand in the dead of the night to find my bible and there in the mist of my anxiety displayed the beautiful words I could no longer shake off and it read " The Lord is my Shepherd: I shall not want" | Psalms 23:1|. I looked over to see if your dad was somehow awakened by the shuffling through the pages of scripture, however, he was sound a sleep.

The words stood out so uniquely from the pages and as I allowed my heart to meditate on it more and more it became clear that the sign of a good Shepherd is to tend to the needs of his sheep. Whatever his sheep needs he makes sure he provides for them. In addition, he cares and protects his sheep  keeping a watchful eye on all of them. The metaphor also applies the same way when it comes to the character of God. His love and care and pursuit for us is one that is matchless.

From the very beginning God was intentional about His hands on creation especially with humans beings. He makes it very clear that human existence is reflection of who He is, " So God created man in his image, in the image of God he created them; male and female| Genesis1:27|.

So to our sweet baby God made no mistakes when He brought you forth and placed you in my womb, while you are being knitted carefully each month; God knew your name and even the number of hairs on your head (whether it be too many or none at all lol). Your days were written in His books even before you existed | ref. Psalm 139:16|. You are made with intentionality and purpose. You have a purpose and God has a plan for your life. I want you to never forget that because without a shadow of doubt there is nothing truer than these words.

Nevertheless, His ultimate plan is to save you from your sins, sadly, your dad and I do not have the capacity to do that. Although, we love you dearly God loves you more, He fashioned you in the secret place, and He set a path for you that no in this world can snatch away. Like a good Father He pursues you with a relentless love. Our love for you is solely based on human capabilities, yet God doesn't stop chasing after you, even in your mess. He sees you as precious, valuable and worth the sacrifice; like a good Shepherd.

The Gospel is so simple and sweet, however, it displays a message that turns heads and causes people to think. The mother on the news headline who would have many people talking about her heinous crime, is a reflection of what God did through His Son for us.

So if you ever start to doubt our love for you in any way because of our limited capabilities here on earth, remember God loves you and He displays that by giving you Jesus Christ.

- Your mother

" Suppose one of you has a hundred sheep and looses one of them. Doesn't he leave the ninety-nine in the open country and go after the lost sheep until he finds it ? And when he finds it, he joyfully put it's on his shoulder and goes home. Then he calls his friends and neighbours together and says, ' Rejoice with me I have found my lost sheep.' | Luke 15:4-6|

For the sake of love,
