He Spent Time Making You!

"You made all the delicate, inner parts of my body and knit me together in my mother’s womb.  Thank you for making me so wonderfully complex!  Your workmanship is marvelous—how well I know it.  You watched me as I was being formed in utter seclusion, as I was woven together in the dark of the womb.  You saw me before I was born.  Every day of my life was recorded in your book.  Every moment was laid out before a single day had passed." Psalm 139:13-16

How reassuring to know that the God we worship spent time making every detail of who we are.  He didn't just wave His hand and order another person to be born.  No, He spoke you!  He knew your face and name before the earth was formed!  That means He cared more about you than creating all the heavens and the earth! 

He took special care with everything that makes you, you.  While you were in your mother's womb, He was there with you.  Each day He told you how much He loves you.  He told your little heart to beat and how many beats each minute.  He told your eyes to be green and your hair to be brown.  He told your legs how much to grow each day, and He told you how tall you would be. 

He breathed into your lungs just the right amount of air, and He delicately formed the inner workings of your ears.  He gave you your own fingerprints, retinas, and lip prints.  No two are alike, not even in identical twins.  He made you unique, a one of a kind.  Just the way He likes you!

It was His finger that you held when your world was as small as the two of you. He whispered the secrets of the universe in your ears, and told you that you were His, now and forever.  He gave you unconditional love, and when it was time to be born, He lovingly guided you out of your mother's body, and then placed you into the doctor's hands.

Celebrate today the loving care our Father gives to you.  It didn't end when you were born; instead, each day of your life, each moment of your life, He is still pouring out His undying love for you.  That won't ever change.  Yesterday, today, and tomorrow.  He loves you more than you will ever know!  Enjoy your day, dear Reader!

  2. Hi,
    To know that I am not a mistake is one of the most precious pieces of knowledge that I have gained so far in my short life. I used to wonder why God didn't make me white, with long blond hair, and blue eyes. I was tortured by the enemy. I didn't feel like I was one of his favourite children because I wasn't the right colour. Then I discovered a beautiful verse in the Bible that said, God doesn't have any favourite. I also rediscovered Genesis. Even though I have read it time and time again, I finally saw when God was creating the universe and man that He always said, Good. And I saw that if God said His creation was good, who am I to doubt that He made me good too. The icing on the cake came from Psalm 139. I'm still learning this and I'm beginning to appreciate who I am as a woman in God. A beautiful woman with my nappy hair and my brown eyes and my dark skin. God made me this way and saw that I was good.
    Thank you for this very inspiring piece. I am glad I waited until today, to sit down and meditate on all three of the articles on your blog.
    Love you, dear lady.
    Shalom aleichem,
    Pat

    1. Hi Pat! I think we all fall into the trap of feeling ugly or of wishing we were prettier. It seems most of us aren't satisfied with what we were given. But God reminded me one day that NO one had the same physical attributes He gave me. He said that it hurts Him when we don't think we are pretty. He thinks we are more beautiful than we can imagine. He made us to look like Him, and He's amazingly beautiful! So beautiful nothing else can compare. So when we find ourselves thinking the way the world does we have to remember we're in His image. I love you, Pat, I would if we were green! xoxo
