Fearfully and Wonderfully Made

13 For you created my inmost being;
you knit me together in my mother's womb.

14 I praise you because I am fearfully and wonderfully made;
your works are wonderful,
I know that full well.

15 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,

16 your eyes saw my unformed body.
All the days ordained for me
were written in your book
before one of them came to be.

17 How precious to me are your thoughts, O God!
How vast is the sum of them!

18 Were I to count them,
they would outnumber the grains of sand.
When I awake,
I am still with you.

Psalm 139: 13-18

I can't help but be amazed and awed by the uniqueness of God.

God the creator.
God the sustainer.

Right now, inside of me, He is knitting together a tiny little baby.
A new person, so perfect that only a creator, scratch that, the Creator could make something, someone so perfect.

Everyday, something new is happening to my baby.
Like developing skin.
Or learning to swallow.
Or having a heart to pump blood all its own.
Or growing a brain stem.

I mean really, are 2 humans able to create such a perfect thing?
I don't think so.

I must forever more stand in awe of the the God who gave me life and breath.
Who gave life and breath to my child.
Who gives life and breath to every living thing.
Who has created every living and non-living thing for the benefit of His children.

Not only am I fearfully and wonderfully made, but so is my precious growing baby. So are you.

Have you thanked God today for what He has created for you?

  1. Hi Sweetie,

    I love your blog and am so glad you have one. I've read every post you have so far and you are doing a wonderful job. I love the post about spending time with your hubby. It is important and it is something that Duane and I need to make more of a priority. Don't let the busyness of a new bundle of joy change that for you, if you can help it. Love ya.
