You and I Are Incredible

I am incredible and so are you….read on.

You made all the delicate, inner parts of my body and knit me together in my mother’s womb. Thank you for making me so wonderfully complex! Your workmanship is marvelous—how well I know it.

Psalms 139:13-14 NLT

The way you and I are made is stunning. The more medical science learns about the way we are made, the more awe inspiring it is. Intricate structures that are both delicate and strong. Capacities for healing and the ability to overcome incredible adversity are like none other.

The soul encompasses the mind, body and human spirit. The soul lasts forever. The mind and body incrementally fade and die. Along this journey we see the strength of youth and the wisdom of age.

To look into the depths of how we are made has the capacity to draw us to God. The workmanship God has poured into our lives is absolutely amazing. The bible teaches that we are made in the likeness or image of God.

As I write this, my back hurts and I am nursing a sore arm. At the same time my body is letting me know all is not well, my mind seeks to understand and know more about the one who made me. There is a desire to work through issues, to see truth, to give hope to others.

You and I have been “knit together” in the most amazing ways. We are complex. We are incredible.

Why? Because this is how God made us.

Dear Jesus,

Thank You for the incredible ways God made each of us. Thank You for the delicate and the strong. Thank you for the simple and complex.
