Words from the Heart for Thursday October 4th, 2018
You made all the delicate, inner parts of my body and knit me together in my mother’s womb.
Psalm 139:13 (NLT)
Here we see the Creator at work. Here His attention is not on the vast universe or the mysteries of the deep oceans. Rather, He is the Source of life who works in the unseen place of every mother’s womb. He knits the amazing parts of the body together. Before the eyes of the parents see the new baby, the Lord’s eye has already been upon the unborn life in the womb. We are wonderfully known to Him before we are born.
Back in 2016 Nike Hollohan started yarn bombing downtown Corner Brook Newfoundland. It isn’t as scary as it sounds. Nike owns a knitting boutique in Corner Brook and she had a desire to beautify the public spaces of her town by adding some colour. It began with custom wrapping four parking metres outside of her store. That helped her use up the huge pile of scraps she had left over. It has gone over well. The crocheted customized sleeves have been warmly received.
You are amazing. I don’t mean that in your personality, although that may be the case. I mean the human body is amazing. You are not just your face, or your limbs. From the minutest part of your body, in the centre of every cell, lies your DNA, a record of your ancestry, making you what you are today. And there are a myriad of types of cells that are at the centre of each part of your body. Fit perfectly together, you have become… you! Some 3,000 years ago, King David wrote this in Psalm 139:13, “you made all the delicate, inner parts of my body and knit me together in my mother’s womb.” There are many in our world today who deny the existence of God, and who believe that we are a matter of chance, evolution, or selective breeding. The Bible is very clear that there is a God and He is intimately involved in making you, YOU. He took all the parts, and knit them together. What a beautiful picture of our God at work creating you. How does knowing this increase your sense of your worth?
These have been words from the heart.
