“I praise you, for I am fearfully and wonderfully made. Wonderful are your works; that I know very well.” ~Psalm 139:14 (NRSV).
God wants us to know, that today and all days, there is no second ‘us’. There is no need for comparison with other people, whom we may find inspirational, or tormented by, regarding their success or our ‘failures’.
Wonderful are all of God’s works, including that ‘piece’ so personal—you and I.
When we ask, “Do I cut it?” the answer is an incomprehensible ‘Yes’—God makes no forgeries, mistakes or rush-jobs. Everything the Lord does is planned, meticulous and precise; beyond which we cannot fully comprehend in this realm.
So, we’re the first ‘us’ ever.
There is no template besides the broad human blueprint.
Enjoy the day, and your life, as God planned it to be experienced—at joy knowing how fearfully and wonderfully made you really are.
