Though you have not seen him, you love him; and even though you do not see him now, you believe in him and are filled with an inexpressible and glorious joy, for you are receiving the end result of your faith, the salvation of your souls.

1 Peter1:8-9

This verse was given to me during your creation in my womb. Such an encouragement for the hope of things unseen, both of you and of Christ Jesus.

All but the last four words in these coupled verses give light to my experienced with you forming within me, being created to perfection and expressing my deepest and most longed for hope.

My love for you was seeded long before you were even a thought, deep within me was birthed a purpose in motherhood before I even knew the meaning.

Though in the time of my carrying of you in my womb, I had not yet laid my eyes upon your soft features or touched my skin to yours, I had already long suffered for you, dwelling in your creation as you were dwelling within mine.

In this, my love for you was established far deeper and greater than I ever could have imagined and you expanded my faith far beyond its limits.

The joy I have seeded in you and all that you are is wonderfully inexpressible and mightily glorious, and all this I owe to Jesus our King who goes before us, with us, and after us.

Experiencing the deliverance of you, my son most hoped for, has taught me even still that the love of the Father knows no bounds, that my faith, although having thought it was much, indeed was little compared to the grand ability it displayed in growth.

If in the revelation of my own son I have been established in such great belief and hope and faith and joy, how much greater still is the revelation we have in the Lord our God who delivers us and brings the salvation of our souls? That not only do I have joy established in you but also in my own salvation and even still in the salvation established for you.

I am humbled by the love and immeasurable joy I have dwelling within you and even more blessed am I that you, your daddy, and I have available to us freedom and life abundant through Christ Jesus. 

May we always remember the love and truth established in us as a family, as equals in the sight of God and as recipients of inexpressible and glorious joy.

I love you tremendously my son, and the gifts I receive in you go far beyond the presence of your being, but are indeed immeasurable and established for eternity by way of faith and joy and hope and all good things.

I love you baby boy, you are my greatest gift apart from Jesus and your daddy, xoxo
