Words by our Priest-in-Charge:
“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.” Psalm 139: 13-14
We had quite a bit of snow in the UK last week. Pierrepont was covered in glorious white. Some of us went outside and build an igloo in the field. I stood at the window of my room, observing the snowflakes gently making their landing to the ground. Sometimes I could almost see the shape of the snowflakes fell that day in the UK alone. Yet, none of these snowflakes were exactly the same with one another. How wonderfully creative God is!
I ponder and realize that we have a God who pays great attention to details. We have a creator who would create snowflakes which are unique in each, which are here during winter and melt away as spring approaches. I held up a handful of snot and made it into a snowball which rendered each snowflake unrecognizable. Yet, each one of them is still unique.
God has created each and every human being unique in His image. Jesus tells us that “But the very hairs of your head are all numbered. Do not fear therefore; you are of more value than many sparrows.” (Luke 12:7) There is certainly none like you in the exact replica in this world. Because you are unique, therefore you are special. Because you are created in His image, you are of great value. Because you are fearfully and wonderfully made, you are loved. Because God has woven you in your mother’s womb, He has His purpose for your life. You are His handiwork and you are wonderful!
God knows each and every one of us. He knows the details of your lives and He cared intimately for us. Others may do things to harm us or we may make wrong choices and get into trouble, but His love for us could not be deterred. He is interested in our well-being and He is able to meet our every need because we are uniquely His!
