It snowed last week. At my Mississippi home, that’s an event worth noting. I enjoyed seeing friends’ posts of their yards, streets and countryside views. The snow-covered scenes seem a bit magical, millions and millions of tiny snowflakes nestled together onto the expanded landscape. Beautiful!
Also beautiful are those uniquely formed flakes – each one different. Alike in composition, yet each one taking a shape that is a distinctive design – one at a time – exclusive in its own beauty.
And such are we. Humans. All made from the same stuff, yet each one formed into our own unique designs. Together, we make up humanity. Yet God gave attention to forming us one at a time into our own matchless identities. No one is like you. No one is like me. We were crafted by the hand of God into created beings like none other.
“For You formed my inward parts; You knitted me together in my mother's womb. I praise You, for I am fearfully and wonderfully made. Wonderful are Your works; my soul knows it very well. My frame was not hidden from You, when I was being made in secret, intricately woven in the depths of the earth. Your eyes saw my unformed substance; in Your book were written, every one of them, the days that were formed for me, when as yet there was none of them.” Psalm 139:13-16
What is even more important is to know that the Creator loves you, His beloved daughter or son, individually. You are His. And He longs to wrap you in His arms of love every day.
“The steadfast love of the Lord never ceases; His mercies never come to an end; they are new every morning; great is Your faithfulness.” Leviticus 3:22-23
Blessings of peace in God’s love as you go through this week. You are created, you are loved.
