The Gift of Life

Psalm 23:1-4
“The Lord is my shepherd; I shall not want. He maketh me to lie down in green pastures: he leadeth me beside the still waters. He restoreth my soul: he leadeth me in the paths of righteousness for his name’s sake. Yea, though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I will fear no evil: for thou art with me; thy rod and thy staff they comfort me.”

The past few weeks have been some of the most amazing time of my life, as I have been a first hand witness to the start of a new life. My wife gave birth to our first child 6 weeks ago. As I have watched her grow and adapt to her new life in this world, I cannot help but think of the care that our Heavenly Father has for us. As her father I have had to be there to meet her every need throughout the day. She is completely helpless without my wife and I. What a glorious example of how our Father cares for us. We are completely helpless without Him to carry us and meet our every need. When we try to do things on our own we are left completely helpless and destitute. We are foolish to think that we can do anything on our own without the help of our Savior. For you see we are just like little babies lying in the crib, with only the ability to cry for help. Let us never forget who we really are and who He really is!
