Uniquely His

Dear Friend,

Do you know that you are one of a kind? You are a unique individual designed by God himself? Before He even formed you in your mother’s womb He had you future planned. Everything about you, from the smallest birth mark to each hair on your head He thought about and designed unique to you. If that isn’t love I don’t know what is. I love how this Psalms puts it:

13 You made all the delicate, inner parts of my body
and knit me together in my mother’s womb.
14 Thank you for making me so wonderfully complex!
Your workmanship is marvelous—how well I know it.
15 You watched me as I was being formed in utter seclusion,
as I was woven together in the dark of the womb.
16 You saw me before I was born.
Every day of my life was recorded in your book.
Every moment was laid out
before a single day had passed. Psalms 139:13-16 (NLT)

Sometimes we have a negative self-image based on how others see us and the way we think about ourselves, our achievements, appearances etc. However, none of us is perfect. We all have different strengths and weaknesses. Unfortunately, many times we focus so much on our areas of weakness that they dominate our view of ourselves. Sometimes it makes us afraid to try new things because we are so sure that we are going to fail.

One thing I'm trying to do is work harder on my areas of personal strengths so that I may become better. Also, try a few new things and maybe discover some hidden talents within myself.  In fact, let’s all show God our appreciation for loving us so much that He took the time to make each of us unique and special. We can do this by trying to see ourselves the way our Creator sees us. We are the apple of His eyes, He delights in us, He loves us, and He wants us to succeed in life.

4 The LORD gave me this message:
5 “I knew you before I formed you in your mother’s womb.
Before you were born I set you apart
and appointed you as my prophet to the nations.” Jeremiah 1:4-5(NLT)

Trusting Him,
