Baby Love — Daily Meditation Moment

“You never saw him, yet you love him. You still don’t see him, yet you trust him…” 1 Peter 1:6 (The Message Bible)

I carried three babies, and when I felt the first butterfly kiss of movement in the womb, I became madly in love with that baby. Sometimes the love was so overwhelming that I wished I could unzip the skin over the uterus and take a peek at the little bundle of love. Now, with ultrasounds, moms and dads can see a picture of the baby, name him or her, and decorate the nursery in pink or blue. As a grandparent, I received a copy of the ultrasound and immediately fell in love with the new grandchild.

I feel as if loving God is like loving the babies I carried, but couldn’t see for nine months. I don’t know when I began to love and trust God, as it started years ago as a seed—similar to the fertilized egg in my womb—and it continues to grow as I meditate and study the scriptures. The obvious difference is that I will never deliver this love, and I pray that I won’t miscarry it either!

Dear God, I trust you because I feel your love. Amen.
