Knit Together: From Conception to Birth

Although the idea of having children anytime soon absolutely freaks me out—I definitely don’t feel prepared to raise a little one quite yet—I’ve always been one fascinated by pregnancy and human development. Does anybody else thinks it’s both wild and miraculous that women can grow human beings inside of them? What’s most beautiful about it is the way God allows us to partner with him in creating eternal beings. He lets women be the vessel to carry the life he builds so perfectly in the womb. As Psalm 139:13-16 says,

“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.

Below is a powerful medical visualization that shows human development from conception to birth—truly evidence of the creative, loving and intelligent nature of God…

How does this video change or reinforce your view of human life and God’s hand in it all?
