Knitted Together

"You knit me together in my mother,s womb"
“You knit me together in my mother’s womb.” Psalm 139

” Unlike the fictitious space visitor from the edge of the universe, God doesn’t have to ‘wend His way’ through time and space in order to be involved at the beginning of each new life. The Psalmist says, “My frame was not hidden from You when I was made in the secret place.” As Creator, He decided which egg would be fertilised and which one of the hundreds of millions of sperm would be successful.”Only He knew the exact genetic code necessary to make you who you are. To put it simply, if a different ‘tadpole’ had won the race, you wouldn’t be here.Whether our parents were planning on having a baby is not the issue. It still is God who is the giver of life, the One who chooses what genetic elements to combine to make us who we are.” (Finding Your Purpose In God’s Plan,  2003, B R Coombs. Treasure House publishing.)

Knitted Together.

I liked the idea of God knitting in the creative process of new life.  Knitting was a concept I understood. As God was knitting together my grandsons Josiah and Elijah in their mothers wombs, I was knitting the tiny garments they would one day wear. For this art piece, I chose golden yarn to convey the value of the new life being formed. My chosen colours are vibrant,  with anticipation . “Your thoughts- how rare, how beautiful! God, I’ll never comprehend them” Psalm139 v 17
