Knitting Outside

For it was you who created my inward parts; you knit me together in my mother’s womb.
Psalm 139:13, CSB

My wife and I are praying every night for our friends and their twin babies, born at only 27 weeks, who are fighting for their lives as I compose these words. God was seventy percent finished with His knitting inside the womb when doctors interrupted the process in order to promote life. Now, the babies are outside the womb, yet our God continues His knitting. As the family and community pray fervently, teams of doctors and nurses work diligently to preserve these precious lives, providing a stark contrast with the doctors who interrupt God’s knitting to destroy life through abortion. While fewer than one percent of abortions are late term, how can we justify saving some two pound humans and terminating others? May God continue His outside knitting in our lives, building our character and forming us into His image, until we recognize that life and death are His and not ours to give and take.
