It has been a while since I've blogged. I've had a lot going on since September. So many great things are happening and God is moving in awesome ways! 

I have been pondering and questioning God about something and I thought I'd post it. It may be something of controversy to some, but that's okay it's always good to bring each other to think and search out the truth of God's word. That's what I want God's truth not my opinion. 

So what is it I have been thinking about?

I've been thinking about LIFE. As I am carrying a new life within my womb now I'm pondering the awesomeness of creation and God in His majesty. 

God creates life in conjunction with us as humans. We are created in His image and likeness and we get to take part in creating through having children. The word says the He knows us before we are in our mother's womb. That He has plans and a destiny for us. (Jer. 1:5)

That being said, if God knew me before I was born then He also knows how many children I am to have. Right??

He knows each one of my children already. WOW!

To me that is awesome and it makes me think...

How many children am I to have...???

For me I would probably be happy with 4 - should this one be a boy. But is that God's plan?? I honestly don't know. 

So, if God knows each child, then would it be considered just like abortion if you stop or never have children?? Aborting the purpose and destiny of a child that God already had in mind by your own choice or even medically preventing it. And if so oh my goodness!!! 
 To me if God creates life, He already knows us, He has a purpose and destiny for each of us...then each child that is created is God's creation and there is a reason for their life. (Jer. 29:11)

Now some might argue well what about children born with AIDS etc etc...Did God not know that?? Yes there is a choice that is made, but God is the one that opens and closes the womb.
I mean look at Sarah and Abraham God didn't open her womb until she was OLD!!!! And God even closed up every womb in Ambimelech's house because of Sarah (Gen.20:18) and Abraham prayed to God and the Lord healed them and they were able to have children again.

This is my question to the Lord and what I've found in the word. I can't apply scripture to one situation and not for another. Jesus is the same yesterday today and forever and He's not a respecter of persons nor is He a man that He should lie.

Because I am posting this I ask you..

Is there anything that the Lord has shown you in the Word that would bring revelation to God's plan for children and what should we do as a married couple when we sit down and make our plans? We may make our plans be He directs our steps. (Jer 10:23)

Sons are a heritage from the Lord, children are a reward from Him. Ps. 127:3
