New Life – Beginnings
288 squares 4“ x 4”
Created by Cindy and Corey Magee
Where does life begin? It is a debate that has gone on for centuries and centuries. Our country has been in debate about New Life for quite some time. Is it at conception? Is it 22 days after conception when the heart can be recognized as beating? Is it at birth? I contend it is at conception when a new life is miraculously created at the joining of two lives. It isn’t that the baby can ‘feel’ anything like you and I; it isn’t that the baby is ‘viable’ on it’s own; it isn’t that the baby is recognizable with eyes, ears, a nose. No, it is that two people have come together and whether this union was meant for good or not, God has chosen to create the child regardless of circumstances for His glory.
Why is this debated? Because not everyone believes where life began - before the womb was even part of the equation. Were we originally created from a primordial soup that was mysteriously zapped by electrical current in the vast universe and evolved from that original state to celled organisms, to small creatures, and up through evolving through apes and then humans? Are we actually on some cosmic journey to becoming gods and melding into one giant god? Were we originally made by an all-knowing, all-loving creator who has a plan for each and every life ever formed – even to knowing the number of hairs on each person’s head?
Whichever path you think that life originated from will direct your steps, will move you to your beliefs of the beginning of each and every life on the planet, and each path requires your faith. No one in the present was there in the past at the beginning of time so each and every one of us has to decide our faith – is it in man’s theories, in God’s word and His love for you, in traditions of religions?
Hebrews 11:1 Now faith is being sure of what we hope for and certain of what we do not see.
Where does your faith rest?
