The Depth of You

I’m standing next to you

as you talk to our friend

 

listening to your sweet voice

watching your expressions

 

gazing at your lovely profile

 

and I feel depth

and hear a Bible verse in my mind

at the same time

 

“You knit me together

in my mother’s womb…”

 

And in the standing

and the socializing

and the regular life

 

I gasp inside

anew

at the miracle that is you

 

You

were knit together by God

inside of me

 

You

this lovely young woman

were designed purposefully

 

lovingly

 

and I was the vessel

gratefully used to bring you here

 

You have no idea

I’m thinking any of these thoughts

 

that I am reflecting in wonder

at who you are

 

profoundly impacted

by truth once again

 

that you

are a part of me

 

and we are created

by Him

 

– Susie Stewart

 

For You created my inmost being;
You knit me together in my mother’s womb.
I praise You because I am fearfully and wonderfully made;
Your works are wonderful,
I know that full well.
My frame was not hidden from You
when I was made in the secret place,
when I was woven together in the depths of the earth.
Your eyes saw my unformed body;
all the days ordained for me were written in Your book
before one of them came to be.
How precious to me are Your thoughts, God!
How vast is the sum of them!
Were I to count them,
they would outnumber the grains of sand—
when I awake, I am still with You.

– Psalm 139:13-18 (NIV)

  1. Love the thoughtful sentiment of awe and wonder when we stop to ponder our priviledge of bearing our children and the awesome responsibility we have as a result!
