“Whatever is good and perfect comes down to us from God…” — James 1:17
It’s a girl! It’s a girl! It’s a girl! This morning I found out that my precious daughter is having a girl. My heart rejoices at the good gifts God gives! I am so excited (as you can tell).
When I heard this morning, I wanted to shout and dance a jig but I was in the waiting room at a hospital, ministering to some of our church folk. My heart reminded me that there is a time for everything under the sun. So I waited until I was outside in the parking lot! I’m sure the lady getting out of the car next to mine had not seen anything like it!
As I was thinking a moment ago about how wonderful God has been to me in the prospect of a future granddaughter, my spirit was arrested by the truth that God has, in faithful love, given me His Son! What joy should fill my heart! What anticipation should shine across my path! What praise should fill my heart! He has given a Son — His Son, to purchase my pardon from the sentence of my sin…to secure my place in His family, and to pour into my being His overflowing life!
I can just hear Mary saying in the stable: It’s a boy! It’s a boy! It’s my Lord…
