As I sat in the doctors office yesterday having an ultrasound, I couldn’t help but be blown away. The technician pointed out Aubrey’s bones, her bladder, her kidneys, her brain, her heart, all of her little fingers and toes. We got to hear her little heartbeat again, which is just the most beautiful sound I’ve ever heard. I just sat there amazed.
I am amazed at what my body is capable of doing without me even trying. I mean, I’m aware I’m pregnant, but I’m not thinking about what my body needs to do in order to make a baby. God made the human body to “be fruitful and multiply”, and we do, but often without even thinking about it. I mean here I am going about my normal day, working, eating, cooking, cleaning, sleeping, etc. and all the while, my body is MAKING a person!! Without me even paying attention, my body has formed the vital organs my baby will need to survive in life. Right now my body is working overtime, to make a perfect little person.
Maybe that is why I could look at an ultrasound all day, or maybe it’s because that is my baby and I can’t wait to meet her and hold her. What I do know, is that I am perfectly made, by my Lord and Savior, and He created the human body to do just what it is doing. God has blessed me by choosing me to carry this little girl, and in doing so He has made my dreams come true.
For this child I have prayed, and the LORD has granted me what I asked of him. – 1 Samuel 1:27
