A Heritage

Standard

DSCN2778 by you.

“Behold, children are a heritage from the Lord, the fruit of the womb a reward.
Like arrows in the hand of a warrior are the children of one’s youth.
Blessed is the man who fills his quiver with them!
He will not be put to shame when he speaks with his enemies in the gate.”
~Psalm 127:3-5

This verse has been on my mind a lot for quite a while. I want to remember that Luke is a gift to me; a reward from my loving Father. It seems so easy to take children for granted, not to value them, and to begrudge them the work of caring for them. But this is NOT how God sees children. He gives them to us as a reward, a good gift! I am so thankful that God has granted to me to feel that Luke is a great blessing, not just know that children are supposed to be a good thing. I pray that we are able to raise him up in godliness and send him out as an arrow of truth!

About Rachel

Most importantly, I am saved by grace through faith in the Lord Jesus Christ. He is more than enough to satisfy my heart. In His abundant goodness, I am also delighted to be a wife and mama. I work at home and enjoy spending most of my time caring for my husband, 2 sons and new daughter. I also try to squeeze in some creativity, coffee, chocolate, and good books.
