God Sighting: Baby Kicks

I am now solidly in my second trimester. My due date is getting closer and closer. Several weeks ago we found out we were having a little girl. Seeing her on the screen at the doctor’s office was so amazing. I could not believe my little one is growing so fast!

For several weeks now I have felt flutters and movement. Yesterday, my little girl was fluttering away. I think she is going to be a bit hyper like her momma and grandma! I put my hand on my belly and felt what I think was her kicking. It was the first time. I was shocked. I was so excited. I wanted to jump and shout! There was only one problem we were in a church service.

I may be out of breath and tired. I may get frustrated at all the things I physically can’t do because I am living and breathing for two. However, I can’t help but see God when I feel my baby kicking.

Psalm 139:13-18

13 For you created my inmost being;
    you knit me together in my mother’s womb.
14 I praise you because I am fearfully and wonderfully made;
    your works are wonderful,
    I know that full well.
15 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.
16 Your eyes saw my unformed body;
    all the days ordained for me were written in your book
    before one of them came to be.
17 How precious to me are your thoughts,[a] God!
    How vast is the sum of them!
18 Were I to count them,
    they would outnumber the grains of sand—
    when I awake, I am still with you.
