Devotional. The Creator and His Creation

DEVOTIONAL

Psalm 139:13-16: 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

What awesome truths are in the Word of God!
How special we are for Him to have personally created each and every one of us so uniquely!

We are custom-designed by The Renown Artist. The Creator of the Universe intricately made us; from each freckle He splashed to and fro to numbering the hairs on our heads Luke 12: 7But even the very hairs of your head are all numbered. Fear not therefore: ye are of more value than many sparrows.! We are the Lord’s Masterpiece! Treat it well and be careful criticizing it !

Let’s be exceptionally cautious about our attitudes toward ourselves and others. Believe it or not, the children (regardless of age) ARE watching, listening and learning about how we accept ourselves and the way God designed us. It WILL have an impact on how they view themselves. This falls on our responsibility in the position of “teacher”. A sponge WILL absorb, what is spilling out from you?
A positive self-image? Healthy perspective on who you are in Christ? Personal loathing? Complaints that you are too tall or short? Critical about weight? Complexion? Intelligence? Skills and Ability? Education? Striving to be a better mother and wife? godliness? attempts at perfection and disgust at failure to accomplish that? In conversations with you Father this weekend, I encourage you to discuss that with Him and allow Him to speak to you about the difference between perception and Truth. May you, we, understand and accept ourselves and others!

Where in the Word was it mentioned that Jesus complained to His Father about not being the best looking man in the group? If only He had been more dynamic in appearance…Maybe a bright, white “Hollywood” smile, slicked back hair and expensive, tailored clothing.. Perhaps then He would have appealed to more people! He did not come to earth to impress upon the eyes, but hearts!

For He shall grow up before Him as a Tender Plant, and as a Root out of a dry ground: He hath no form nor comeliness; and when we shall see Him,there is no beauty that we should desire Him. Isaiah 53:2

PRAYER

Almighty Lord and King
Thank You for making us
All differently
Each person is so incredibly unique

Although we may be the same in many ways
There are specific distinctions You have given every one of us

Father, we just ask that You will instill an acceptance in the hearts and minds
Of each child represented here
That You, O God
Personally knit them together
In such a special way
And give them the confidence
To embrace the Work of Your hands

We know that until You come or call us Home
We will not be compete in You

We ask for inner beauty, Father
That we reflect You

As Your children, O God
We need NOT criticize ourselves or one another
In doing so, we insult Your creation

Please forgive us for ignoring the many
Blessings You bestow on us
Please open our eyes
Reveal that true beauty is in being who You, not the world, says we are!
May the reflection we cast
Be that of our Glorious and Stunning Lord!

In the Name of Jesus Christ,
AMEN

First, and most importantly, I love Jesus Christ and I trust in Him as my Lord and Savior. I was raised in a Christian home by a godly dad and mom (who planned and had me in July before turning 42 in August), and 5 older siblings. My father passed away when I was 7 and my mother (who went to be with the Lord in 2005 at 81) never remarried. As a child, I was bullied at school, so I did not have many friends. I didn't want to tell my mom this because I knew she had enough worry being a widow at 50. I know what it is like to be lonely. As an adult, God showed me the value of His Friendship and has blessed me, too, with rich relationships with dear friends who also love the Lord. My husband and I (married 31 years as of 2020), have three wonderful, adult children and son-in-law as well as three darling grandchildren. Along with many others, my husband lost his job, but we refuse to be fearful or angry. The Lord has provided for us and we are so thankful for the opportunity to express gratitude through personal contact and occasional memories I share through writing. I believe the Lord has given me a venue to engage with others and a means to share His Word. Thank you for checking out my page. I hope you enjoy what you read. If there is anything positive or insightful in the devotionals (NOT CALLING MY WRITING "INSPIRED" by any means!), I give all credit and glory to Jesus Christ! On the other side of that, when something makes no sense, that's all me
