Birth is ordinary. Does that jarr you? I know I’m still feeling the aftershocks of that statement ever since my husband, Ben, articulated it to me. But I think his point is a compelling and biblical one, and I wanted to share it with you all! Oftentimes, we think that for birth to go ‘well’ or be ‘beautiful’, something miraculous needs to happen. We’re looking for a heightened, spiritual experience. The reality is that God commonly, graciously, sovereignly works through ordinary circumstances to fill his promises. Together, we candidly and openly consider Scripture as we grapple with this thought. I hope it gives you as much food for thought as it did me!
