Weeks have passed... *Updated 3/16
The weeks have passed, and I grow and grow nearer to the inherent promise of pregnancy: seeing her and then seeing her start to grow.
But the Lord knew my child long before my first broad smile on her account, before I cried fresh, wet joy at her first ultrasound image, before I consumed her first kick.
Think of the prophet Jeremiah of whom God spoke: “Before I formed you in the womb I knew you, and before you were born I consecrated you; I appointed you a prophet to the nations,” (Jer. 1:5).
Think of the psalmist David who writes to the Lord: “For You formed my inward parts; You knitted me together in my mother’s womb,” (Ps. 139:13).
Surely He also deeply knows my little girl, the precious subject of my prayers [this promise is my joy, my confidence, my peace].
