An Heritage

Psalms 127 (KJV)

³ Lo, children are an heritage of the LORD: and the fruit of the womb is his reward.⁴ As arrows are in the hand of a mighty man; so are children of the youth.⁵ Happy is the man that hath his quiver full of them: they shall not be ashamed, but they shall speak with the enemies in the gate.

My heart is so burdened that I don’t even know where to start…..

Psalms 139 (KJV)¹³ For thou hast possessed my reins: thou hast covered me in my mother’s womb.¹⁴ I will praise thee; for I am fearfully and wonderfully made: marvellous are thy works; and that my soul knoweth right well.

Today I am sad…heart broken….repentant. If there is one area that I am most thankful for God’s grace and forgiveness it’s this one… child bearing. Lately I have found my self wondering what our children would have been like had we not tried to control things for all of those years. I wonder how many precious arrows we would have in our quiver.

I look at these four precious arrows He has given me and I feel a mix of sadness at those we missed out on and honor at what I’ve been trusted with.

The internet right now is full of debate on abortion/murder and “women’s rights.” The world views children as a burden…even those in so called “christian” circles. They can’t wait to send them off to school for someone else to deal with or sit them in front of the television so they can have a break or prevent pregnancy or even kill them because they want their bodies to themselves.

But really children are a blessing. God calls them “an heritage!” Scriptures are full of God’s love for children. And He chose us…women… be the vessels in which He would grow and nurture these precious souls!

I look at my, really His, beautiful children and I am humbled and in awe that I was chosen to carry them in my womb and train them up in His ways…I am nothing compared to Him! And he chose me! What an honor and a privilege to be a woman!

Satan has once again done an incredible job of twisting and destroying something that God created so perfectly and beautifully!!

Tonight I pray …I pray for those who are so lost that they can’t see the miracle of these tiny souls. I pray for those tiny souls that have been victims of such unspeakable evil. And most of all I praise God for his forgiveness and mercy and grace for my ignorance. And I hug my babies a little tighter, remembering who they really belong to.
