Babies and Destiny

Every baby has destiny wrapped up inside of them like treasure waiting to be discovered. Every single human being. Every little life - from the get go.

And that includes you and me.

Today one of my grandchildren was dedicated. Her father and mother pledged to the Lord before all of us to do their best to lead her into a knowledge of His great love. They prayed for her, acknowledging that she has destiny, talents, purpose. They asked for wisdom, patience, insight. We prayed as well. It is precious and necessary to remember that each child is not for us, but for Him. He created, He loved, He planned, He wrought salvation.

Her mother sang a song.
"These fingers that curl round my hand must do things that no other can.
I know you're not mine, but God's own design, and I want you to follow His plan."
That is true.
For her. For me.
For you.
