Wonderfully and Remarkably Made

The other day in one of my ventures at the bookstore, I was a girl on a mission to find a particular book and this sign caught my eye and made me smile.  I loved it because this verse is something I vividly remember my dad and mom telling me over and over as I was growing up and I too passed it on to my kids when they were young.

And I also love how God has such a sense of humor!  Not only did seeing the sign bring back these precious words to me, but obviously this is a passage HE really wanted to bring home to me because as my sweet man and I were sharing some quiet time together the next morning, he read these words to me from Psalm 139.

Lord, You have searched me and known me.2You know when I sit down and when I stand up;You understand my thoughts from far away.3You observe my travels and my rest;You are aware of all my ways.4Before a word is on my tongue,You know all about it, Lord.5You have encircled me;You have placed Your hand on me.6This extraordinary knowledge is beyond me.It is lofty; I am unable to reach it.
14I will praise You because I have been remarkably and wonderfully made. Your works are wonderful,and I know this very well. 

Not only are these words a child needs to hear growing up, but we all need to know these truths.  And He keeps pointing me to this Truth.  I may not always understand why certain things happen in my life, or the lives of those I love so dearly.  But I do know that His Hand created each of us for His Purpose and His Plan, and that even when I may not understand the WHY, HE KNOWS every minute detail and outcome and I must TRUST and BELIEVE.

God’s purposes are not for me to understand His plans:  His plan is for me to understand Who He is.  ~@AnnVoskamp

I am a follower of Jesus on the journey of discovering His real, lasting joy through God's grace and thanksgiving. Several years ago, I married my best friend, whom I met in kindergarten many years ago. Life choices took each of us on separate paths, but Divine Appointment brought our paths back together. It's exciting to share this journey with my sweet man - a man who loves God more than he loves me! What a gift!! As a young woman I prayed for God to send a godly man like my daddy to pursue me. I just wasn't listening and abiding when I should have been. Good news in HIS time and in HIS grace, HE did! Not only does my sweet man love me, but he loves my three grown kids as if they were his own. He shares their joys and he hurts when they hurt. I love to hear him pray for each of them daily as we begin and end our days. View all posts by beegee10
