My beautiful wife and child

08 Aug

Heidi is now almost half way there! She’s so beautiful!!!!! Next week we get to find out whether our child is a boy or girl (if he or she is cooperative). It’s fascinating to think that we’ll be able to see all of the developing organs of our baby and see how it going in there. So much has gone through my mind and heart as I consider what it means to be a father. As much as I want to show and prove my love to my wife and child, I know that my love is not enough. I must point them both to Christ. They need my love, but they need His love even more still. I’ve been finding great comfort in these words from the prophet Isaiah:

Isaiah 49:15-16
“Can a woman forget her nursing child, that she should have no compassion on the son of her womb? Even these may forget, yet I will not forget you. Behold, I have engraved you on the palms of my hands; your walls are continually before me.

    “How deep the Father’s love for us
    How vast beyond all measure
    That He should give His only Son
    To make a wretch His treasure”

    What wonderful, beautiful and difficult times are coming! But we press on because of what has been done for us! I’m so encouraged my brother, to hear of your desire to point your wife and children to Christ! Lead them to follow the Leader, the great King Eternal!

    Thanks for your ministry and for pointing everything back to Jesus – to which we have counted all things as loss in view of the surpassing Value of knowing Christ Jesus my Lord!

    Love like your saved brother!
