by Nancy Campbell from Above Rubies – The Compassionate Womb
Editor’s note: This one has me jaw-dropped this morning. Seriously? The womb is the seat of our emotions? I am guessing that this is why Nancy Campbell does not want women to ever have or express any negative thoughts or emotions. It might poison the womb, but only if this unscientific notion was true. The last time I checked the only thing your uterus holds is either your monthly uterine lining or a baby. No room for emotions.
Isn’t it awesome to know that we weren’t created haphazardly, but purposely? God created every aspect of our female body for His divine purposes. He didn’t create our female organs to lie dormant or to atrophy, but to fulfill God’s wondrous designs. Our whole being, transcendentally and physically, is tied together. Our womb is not only a physical organ. It is the very seat of our emotions. It is the essence of our motherly compassion and love.
It always amazes me that the word “womb” in the Bible is used to describe the physical womb and also compassion and pity, especially God’s compassion. When we embrace the function of our womb, we experience more and more of the anointing of God’s compassion in our lives.
Isaiah 49:15 reads: “Can a woman forget her sucking child, that she should not have COMPASSION on the son of her WOMB? Yea, they may forget, yet will I not forget thee.” Do you notice that compassion and the womb are linked together?
Do not despise the glorious function of your womb. It is not only where you conceive and nurture an eternal soul, but where the anointing of God’s compassion and love encompasses you. And, even more amazingly, you reveal God’s compassionate heart toward your children and those around you.
