Complete in Thee each want supplied,
And no good thing to me denied;
Since Thou my portion, Lord, wilt be,
I ask no more, complete in Thee.

(3rd verse of "Complete In Thee", by Aaron Roberts Wolfe & James Martin Gray)

Psalm 127

1 "Unless the Lord
builds the house,
They labor in vain who
build it;
Unless the Lord guards
the city,
The watchman keeps
awake in vain.
2 "It is vain for you to rise up
To retire late,
To eat the bread of
painful labors;
For He gives to His
beloved even in His sleep.

3 "Behold, children are a
gift of the Lord,
The fruit of the womb is
a reward.
4 "Like arrows in the hand of
a warrior,
So are the children of one's
5 "How blessed is the man
whose quiver is full of
They shall not be
When they speak with
their enemies in the gate."

(verse 5 King James Version
"Happy is the man that hath
his quiver full of them:
they shall not be ashamed,
but they shall speak with
the enemies in the gate.")

i post this chapter because it has been on my heart. i have a bit of a soap box when it comes to the timing of bearing children (i.e. birth control), and i don't want to get on it. but i do have a burden on my heart lately to share with my beloved friends about the joys of God's little blessings, those souls that we call our children. i say simply this...

Consider the Lord. read His Word (not just the part i've put here, but read more/all of it). pray and ask for His wisdom.

Proverbs 19:2
"Also it is not good for a
person to be without
And he who hurries his
footsteps errs."

consider the Lord. look for His timing in all things. especially babies.
