Oh my gosh. Beautiful. Wonderful. So much of this deeply resonates with me. On a different level, but still, these children we are bringing home (also the children we have home) are perfect in His eyes.
I will be printing this out to reread again. So wonderful. So beautiful. Here are my favorite parts of their post:
‘Fearfully and wonderfully made.’
So I took out my phone and googled Psalm 139. I placed my hand on Lisa’s belly and read: “You created her inmost being;”
That phrase unearthed a new reservoir of tears for both Lisa and I. It took a long time before I could gain composure to continue reading. But eventually the words washed over us like a waterfall.
‘You knit her together in her mother’s womb.
We praise you because she is fearfully and wonderfully made
Your works are wonderful, I know that full well.
Her frame was not hidden from you
When she was made in the secret place,
When she was woven together in the depths of the earth.
Your eyes saw her unformed body;
All the days ordained for her were written in your book
Before one of them came to be.
How precious are your thoughts of her oh God
How vast is the sum of them
Were I to count them, they would outnumber the grains of sand’
What is so crazy to me is how many of my friends who have adopted kids who have big hurdles have used Gungor music to help them through it. Particularly the song Beautiful Things. It is almost like they were perfectly prepared for this moment without even knowing it…
