Where were you in the beginning?
Where was I?
I’m in my 6th consecutive year of reading through the entire Bible and I just realized that Genesis 1 and John 1 both start with the same words, “In the beginning,”
Genesis 1 tells us what God and the Holy Spirit were doing ‘In the beginning’. John 1 tells us what Jesus was doing ‘In the beginning’.
God had a plan for you and me ‘In the beginning’. He knew when we would be conceived and he knows the date and time of our last breath here on earth. Of course he knows that – he has Jesus scheduled to come and walk those who believe in him and trust in him home.
She ‘began’ only 5 months ago. God is molding her tiny fingernails and stretching out her little legs as you read this. He has a plan for her. He knows the date and time she will come out to meet us and he has already determined her final day on earth. He loves her and is caring for her right now in her mother’s belly.
God was with her in her beginning.
God was with me in my beginning.
And he also was with you when you began.
Take a moment to feel his loving arms wrapped around you. We were in our Father’s heart and hands ‘in the beginning’. We are still there today and every day.
Please hold us close, Abba Father. Thank you for loving and taking care of my teeny new grand-daughter.
