I can see them working diligently over the 9 months that are required for You to knit me together in my mothers womb, Lord.
They seem to get bigger over that time as You wield those mighty tools, not swords, knitting needles according to the Word of God, steadily meshing together, threading flesh to flesh, bone to sinew, muscle to tendon.
Little teeny knitting needles with special tips for special jobs. I can only image how those tools are shaped, Father. Only You know.
And the special ones for the mind…
I praise Your mighty name for You chose to reveal Yourself to me in such a mighty way Father…yet it started when You began to knit with those special knitting needles just for the mind…
And the soul, FATHER! What do those unique knitting needles look like? Do these divine devices differ for each one of Your dear children? I had to ask, since Your Word says we are all uniquely made, yet created in Your image.
Psalm 22:10 From birth I was cast on you; from my mother’s womb you have been my God.
Yes Lord, cast on You from my mother’s womb. You have been and will be my God. I praise You for choosing to reveal Yourself to me, that I may extol Your virtues and exalt Your Holy Name. Thank you that You choose us. HOLY is Your name among all names.
Psalm 71:6 From birth I have relied on you; you brought me forth from my mother’s womb. I will ever praise you.
Ephesians 6:2-3 2 “Honor your father and mother”—which is the first commandment with a promise— 3 “so that it may go well with you and that you may enjoy long life on the earth.”
Thank You for commanding us to honor our mother and father, O Father God. And thank You that Your commandment includes a promise…that it may go well and you may enjoy long life on the earth.
Mother and I enjoyed the local Women’s group luncheon yesterday. At 91, she is STILL a joy to be around. Sharp mind, big smile and a heart that melts folks around her. She is a treasure.
Thank You, Father, that I still have her here with me. Yes, she has been given a long life on this earth. HONOR…She honors You so well, Lord. And is an inspiring role model.
