In the Womb of God

Good Evening, God!

Your love for us humans is so hard for us to grasp. We know ourselves, God, and therefore we doubt. Sigh.

But recently I found out the the Hebrew word for Compassion (Rachamin) comes for the root word rechem which means womb. Yes, Womb. Wow! When You feel compassion for us is like Your are enfolding us in Your Womb.

Learning this fact kind of made me quiver all over with delight.

A Mother’s womb does two major functions: 1) supplies nutrients needed for growth 2) carries away waste products that would be toxic to the infant. And as we pray . . . center . . . seek to connect with You . . . You do both of those!

Forgiving is less difficult when we feel embraced by Your Love. After a 10 day silent retreat this September I felt cleaner . . . so many regrets and resentments had been released.

I’ve often thought that to You we are all toddlers . . . and toddlers can be forgiven much. But, it is far more than that, God. We are like fetuses — that undeveloped! And that beloved. I remember being pregnant and talking to my baby . . . loving each one so dearly . . . loving them while still unseen.

I came out of a male dominant world . . . so picturing Your Compassion as being not just in Your Lap but in Your Womb . . . is a marvelously healing image for me. I am smiling. I am thankful.
