BABY GEAR

The preparation doesn’t match the reality, Father.

We prepared;

Purchased all the paraphernalia—

the pram, cot, car seat,

the nappies, clothes, toys,

the powders, creams, wipes …

We researched;

Ensured a healthy pregnancy—

the right diet,

the right exercise,

the right environment …

And now it is real.

Now we have our baby;

Now we have a relationship

With this little one.

And it is different,

It is more exciting,

more wonderful,

more intense,

more … everything

Than I could have dreamed.

I remember when my faith was like that:

I had prepared,

Purchased all the paraphernalia.

I had researched,

Ensured the right environment.

But I hadn’t faith—

I didn’t have a relationship with you.

But now it is real.

I have a relationship with you.

And it is more exciting,

more wonderful,

more intense,

more … everything

Than I could have dreamed.

I came so they can have real and eternal life, more and better life than they ever dreamed of. (John 10: 10, MSG)
