Gifts Outside My Window

I look out my window and see that this is a beautiful day! The morning sun is warm, a hint of breeze moves leaves on the trees, birds call and sing to each other. This is a morning during which I watch mothers as they take their babies for a walk in the fresh air.

Babies are marvelous! It’s wonderful to see these tiny people, new and pure to the world, with literally their entire lives ahead of them. It’s staggering for a parent to think of days and years to come, and of what potential will unfold and be realized within their child.

More staggering, though, is the fact that God knows, right now, who they will become as they grow! He created their very being and holds the Plan for their life.

These infants remind me that He also knows every one of us, right now, even better than we know ourselves. So how can I not trust Him nor depend on Him? Nothing I do or say or think is of any surprise to Him. He created me, He understands me, and knew all about me before I was even born!

For You created my inmost being; You knit me together in my mother’s womb. I praise You because I am fearfully and wonderfully made. Psalms 139:13,14
