Children are a heritage from the Lord, offspring a reward from him. Like arrows in the hands of a warrior are children born in one’s youth.
I couldn’t stop looking at each of my babies when they were born, the tiny details of the palms of their hands, and souls of their feet, tiny finger nails little toes, big long eyelashes, the sounds they made whilst sleeping, that cute yawn, or windy smile….
It so easy to see God in all of the detail staring in to the face of a new born baby…
Thinking about the promises He gives to us I wrote a love letter for you to speak over your babies each and everyday ….
Precious one, you are knitted together in detail from the very hairs on your head to your tiny toes tucked perfectly in my womb. God has formed your inmost being. You are fearfully and wonderfully made (Psalm 139:13-16)
Each and every hair on your head is numbered (Matt 10:30)
Before He placed you in my womb God knew He would set you apart (Jeremiah 1:5)
You are a good and perfect gift from above (James 1:17)
Beautiful one, you are heritage from the Lord, the fruit of the womb A REWARD! (Psalm 127:3)
He will bless you and keep you, He will make His face shine upon you, the Lord will turn His face to you and give you peace (Numbers 6:24-26)
You will grow and become strong, be filled with wisdom and the favour of God will always be upon you (Luke 2:40)
Sweet child, you are God’s handiwork created in Christ Jesus to do good works, which God prepares in advance (Ephesians 2:10)
You will never ever be looked down upon for in heaven your angels are always in the presence of your Heavenly Father (Matthew 18:10)
The lord will always fight for you beautiful baby, you need only be still (Exodus 14:14)
He will give your strength when you are weary and increase your power when you are weak (Isaiah 40:29)
Never fear precious one God is always with you (Isaiah 41:10)
He has great plans for you, to make you prosper, give you hope and a future (Jeremiah 29:11)
My God will always meet all of your needs (Philippians 4:19)
Ask and it will be given to you; precious child seek and you will find; knock and the door will be opened to you. (Matthew 7:7)
I pray that you grow to hold on to each and every one of these beautiful promises, you will be loved beyond all understanding in in fathomable ways.
Thanks be to God – Amen.
