Birth Pains


Still 'fine-tuning' our process. You can get to the original article HERE

I have unforgettable memories attached to the birth of our
children. When Karli our eldest was born, I will always cherish the first-time
experience of cutting the cord and holding our baby girl in my arms.


Levi our youngest was born in Windsor, and I will always
remember the pensive moment of his arrival when the umbilical cord was wrapped
around his neck. Fortunately, he was fine, and we were filled with gratitude.


When Jesse our middle child was born in London, I will
always remember that he was a big baby and our first son. He was larger in the
womb than the other two and I have a special memory from the labour room. At
one point, I looked and saw the crown of his head emerging. Excitedly, I put my
head near Marsha’s and said, “I can see the top of his head!”


Marsha grabbed me by the hair and shook my head violently, Is
that all


I was caught up in the excitement, but she was caught up in
the pain. But again, what joy when he arrived safely to our world.

That’s the thing about choosing to have a family of your
own. You will both experience the excitement and at least one of you will
experience birth pains. This human picture of childbirth permeates the
Scriptures as a metaphor of spiritual truth. It helps us understand what it
means to be the Bride of Christ and to have the Lord as the Husband.


The Bible is the story of God building a family for himself
that would continue to grow through time. In order to do so, God requires
people like Abram and Sarai who are willing to pursue God’s vision as his partners.


Subsequent generations of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob were
called forward to the formation of Israel and then further where all nations
would be adopted into the Church. The grand narrative of Scripture points to a
Kingdom that increases through partnership and fails when overcome by
infidelity. It is the story of an eternal, growing family.
