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.
He created my inmost being, he knit me together in my mother’s womb. I am fearfully and wonderfully made; I am wonderful and I know that full well.
I am really just understanding what that means at 56 years old. Why did it take me so long to understand that every vein in my body, every freckle, every stray hair, even dimple, every brown spot, every winkle, every not quite symmetrical part and every other fiber of my being is perfect because He made me?
I’m learning, I’m starting to understand that I have value. And my value in Him is all the value I need. I haven’t totally grasped it yet. I still struggle with the self doubt thoughts, the dissatisfied words that run through my head and the sin that comes out of me because of my uncontrolled desires to be loved, right, seen and needed. I’m learning, still striving to value myself enough to expect value from others. I’m learning that others struggle with the same. I’m learning to value their struggle.
But today, I know without a single doubt that He loves me just as I am.
And He said, “It is Good”.
Lord, help me feel as You feel. Amen!
