The bible tells us that God created us in our mother’s womb. Read these words:
“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.” Psalms 139: 13-14 NIV.
King David tells us that God created us in our mother’s womb…knit…KNIT…that hints at a delicate, intimate, time-consuming process. AND that what God created is wonderful. WONDERFUL!
You. Are. Wonderfully. Created.
Despite the obesity. Despite the acne that covers your face and causes scarring. Despite the neurofibromatosis that causes bumps all over your body. Despite your curly hair (that you wish was straight). Despite going bald when you used to run your fingers through a thick jungle. Despite your right leg amputation from a car accident.
Despite all of your imperfections, YOU were KNIT TOGETHER in your mother’s womb and YOU are WONDERFUL!
Despite it all, you were created and you are loved by a perfect God.
Remember that on the sixth day of creation, God made man. He created a universe and an Earth to sustain us, then brought us into this Earth on Day 6.
“Then God said, ‘Let us make mankind in our image, in our likeness, so that they may rule over the fish in the sea and the birds in the sky, over the livestock and all the wild animals, and over all the creatures that move along the ground.’ So God created mankind in his image, in the image of God he created them; male and female he created them. God blessed them…” Genesis 1: 26-27 NIV
Remember that you are NOT a mistake. No matter the medical battle you are facing. Cancer. Skin conditions. Pain. Diabetes. Neuropathy. ADHD. Depression. Bipolar Disorder. Arthritis. Lupus. God created YOU and KNIT you in your mother’s womb.
God created you because you have purpose on this Earth. God created you because he loves you.
Take your mental, physical, and/or spiritual battle and give it to God. He will lighten your burden and remind you of how beautiful and perfect you are.
