There is something magical about creating.
All of us create in one form or another – on canvas, through song, in the kitchen, with our words. Even maintaining organization and order to a household is a form of creating. We all have it.
We put part of ourselves into those creations. And the world sees a piece of who we are through what we create.
The same principle applies to us as God‘s creation.
There is a part of who He is that the world only gets to see through you.
Isn’t that an amazing truth?
Psalm 139:14 says, “I praise you because I am fearfully and wonderfully made; your works are wonderful, I know that full well.”
In Holley Gerth’s book, God’s Heart for You, she recommends reading Psalm 139 in its entirety and I’m so glad she did. It prompted me to go back to some of my favorite passages and messages about how intimately God knows us.
There are many times that I feel unworthy and less-than. In those times, I remind myself that my worth really isn’t about me at all. It’s about the One who created me.
The same God who hung the moon, filled the oceans and flung the stars into the heavens also made me.
How wonderful is that?
He knows when I sit and when I rise. He perceives my thoughts from afar and is familiar with all of my ways. (Psalm 139)
In Cure for the Common Life, Max Lucado says, “Da Vinci painted one Mona Lisa. Beethoven composed one Fifth Symphony. And God made one version of you… We exist to exhibit God, to display His glory. We serve as canvases for His brushstrokes, papers for His pen, soil for His sees, glimpses of His image.”
Embrace the worth and value the Almighty has given you.
You may put on a different face or show a different “you” because you think it’s more acceptable to the world.
We’ve all been there. At the end of the day, when it’s just you and your thoughts, you know who you are. In those moments, remember whose you are.
You, my dear, are wonderfully made.
