Did You Know That...

You are beautiful.

No matter what the world tries to whisper into your ear, know this. He, the King of all kings, the Creator of this wonderful universe, made you.

He fashioned you inside and out. He set forth your life and its exact date of commencement before the earth was spun into motion.

The enemy may taunt us. He may cause us to doubt our ability to be loved. He will whisper lies of discouragement and self doubt, feelings of insecurity and inferiority, into our ears. And he'll present falsehoods wrapped up in faux truth. He wants to render us helpless. He wants us to turn into ourselves so that we can't possibly be expended out to others.

But what I'm giving you (and myself) right now is not a pep talk made up of fluffy, fleeting words. What I'm talking about is straight from the Word of God. You are His creation. And He made you fearfully and wonderfully. And He fashioned your parts. And He made you, His daughter, for a wonderful, fulfilling purpose. His purpose. His good, perfect, "He's totally in control of your life when you let Him be" purpose.

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. My frame was not hidden from you when I was made in the secret place, when I was woven together in the depths of the earth. Your eyes saw my unformed body; all the days ordained for me were written in your book before one of them came to be.
Psalm 139: 13-16

Psalms 139 - God's love letter to us; His beloved creation. I read this love letter at Mom and Daddy's 60th anniversary party on the day my husband died. Four days later the pastor read a portion of it at Dave's graveside service.
