2 Samuel 7:22

2 Samuel 7:22
For this reason You are great, O Lord God; for there is none like You, and there is no God besides You, according to all that we have heard with our ears.

There is no greater example of the power of God than in the gift of a child.  I have had the privilege of seeing a baby in the womb at six weeks, that's only four weeks after conception.  In just four short weeks, a sperm and an egg have changed from two separate entities into one living, changing, growing child.  I hate the word fetus, it takes the warmth out of what is truly being discussed; a child.  At six weeks, this child looks like an egg with a yolk that has a tiny beating heart the size of a grain of rice.  Well, I should clarify, on the ultrasound, the heart is the size of a grain of rice but the baby is actually only the size of a poppy seed.  How can anyone not see the miracle in the creation of life?!

In just nine short months, it goes by much faster than one would expect, that tiny poppy seed grows into a fully formed, 8+ pound beautiful baby.  When I think of all the dangers that that tiny baby faced and persevered through just to make it into this world, my mind is truly blown.  I don't know how anyone can question the presence or power of our great God in our lives.  I have seen the beauty of a healthy baby after birth and experienced the great sadness that comes with losing a baby in the womb.  Both bring tears.  Both bring struggles.  Both are experiences that we share with those around us and remind of us our own humanity. 

He is truly great.  There is no one greater.  There is no one with the power and love that He possesses.  Look to Him for your guidance.  Look to Him for approval.  Look to Him.

Thanks for reading!
