Has anyone ever told you that?
Everything about you; your eyes, your nose, your hands, feet and legs… and those are just your outer workings. Then there’s your spirit! Did you know that there is no one who has a spirit like you? Sure, there might be others who think like you or walk and talk like you, but there is only one of YOU. God made you exactly as He wanted you to be.
As you know, we have had a lot going on in our home lately that has had me thinking about just how precious life is. It is fleeting and stops as quickly as it starts. There was a day many years ago that marked the beginning of your miraculous life. Those cells began to divide and you began to take shape. And as those cells were dividing so rapidly, your life story was being written out for you in heaven. Have you ever thought of that? That there was a plan for you before you met the light of day?
And it is a very good plan; filled with moments of glory and joy and heartache and disappointments and healing… learning to get up again. And no one else has a plan like yours. It was specially designed for you by the Creator of the universe to draw you to Him, that He might fill and nurture your heart to the fullest. Because He loves you more than you could EVER fathom.
Did you know that His plan for you is good even if it is short? God uses each one of us, whether we make it 1 day or 100 years to accomplish His purposes, which are ALWAYS good. Do not fear the unknown. He is already there and knows the end of the story. He wrote it and it’s the best one for you, filled with adventures, twists and turns, highs and lows, loves and losses. He is there with you through all of it.
“For You created my inmost being; You knit me together in my mother’s womb. I praise You because I am fearfully and wonderfully made; Your works are wonderful, I know that full well. My frame was not hidden from You when I was made in the secret place. When I was woven together in the depths of the earth, Your eyes saw my unformed body. All the days ordained for me were written in Your book before one of them came to be.”
–Psalm 139: 13-16
Do you know how easy it would be for you to not have been here? To not be granted this miracle of life? With the cells that kept dividing, all it would take is ONE of them to divide improperly, or ONE chromosome to not show up as it should, or ONE to double when it shouldn’t, and you wouldn’t be here. BUT YOU ARE. And you are beautiful. Do you know that? In your soul? Let me repeat myself:
YOU. ARE. BEAUTIFUL.
Do not let anyone tell you otherwise or suggest that you are not good enough. Because you ARE. You are worth the miraculous life you were granted.
Live like it every day, because God created YOU on purpose with His purpose in mind. And your life is very good.
