Today is a day for celebration! We have a newborn baby girl in the family and she is doing wonderfully. My sister was past her due date by 7 days so she was induced and things started moving afterwards. I’m so happy everything turned out okay. When she had her first baby (another girl) a few years ago, she had to go through a lot and I thought that experience would traumatized her. But no it didn’t, she did well this time around and jokingly said she would have another one if the experience would be the same.
God is great! Having a baby is a miracle. I mean, how to explain a 7 and a half pound baby coming out through such a narrow channel? And even before being pregnant, how do we explain the fact that a human being grows inside the womb and nourishes from his/her mother? It amazes me every time I think of this and I can only see God doing something like this.
Ecclesiastes 11:5 says “You don’t know where the wind blows. And you don’t know how a baby grows in its mother’s womb. In the same way, you don’t know what God will do—and he makes everything happen.”
God created us and He created everything else. His plans are so wonderfully made that we don’t really know how they work. He created a man and a woman and every organ and cell that made them up, and a way for them to keep reproducing. And that is why we are here now.
Yes, science can prove lots of things. But as far as I know, it still has not proved how we, the human race, arrived to Earth. And yes, science states that a cell from a man and a cell from a woman, when united, can create life. But who made us that way? Who said the woman should have an egg and a man a sperm? Oh lots of questions.
In my short education, I took a lot of science and math classes. And I learned how science proves things and how, in unison with precised math, it can be fairly accurate. And I get it, science and math rule the world. And for a while, I was very doubtful of the Bible because some things didn’t make sense to me. But I know that there are a gazillion things that science and math cannot prove, but they happen. So I just arrived at the conclusion that there is a greater power, a greater love, that created us and everything and His name is God, our Father.
