Psalm 139:13-16

“For thou didst form my inward parts, thou didst knit me together in my mother’s womb.  I praise thee, for thou art fearful and wonderful. Wonderful are thy works! Thou knowest me right well; my frame was not hidden from thee, when I was being made in secret, intricately wrought in the depths of the earth.  Thy eyes beheld my unformed substance; in thy book were written, every one of them, the days that were formed for me, when as yet there was none of them.”

 This verse tells us that God personally formed us in our mother’s womb.  He had a personal relationship with us from the very beginning and He made us the way we are today. However, if you read the newspapers and magazines, God’s word is contrary to what the world tells us about ourselves.  We should not lose sight that we have been uniquely made by God: He gave us our shape, our hair (or lack thereof), our face, our height, our build.  The world sells us the lie that we should not be happy with how we look and that true happiness will come if we alter what God has given us. It’s interesting that we are told to change our uniqueness to that of a common acceptable look that the world deems as “good”.

Genesis 1:31 “And God saw everything that he had made, and behold, it was very good.”

 There is no one else in this whole world that looks like you.  You are God-unique. There is a reason why He made you this way and wanted you to look like you do. We should embrace our physical appearance and uniqueness and thank God for the breath and life we have been given.  When we look in the mirror today may

we appreciate God’s handiwork.

 

God bless,
