Fearfully and Wonderfully Made

"I will praise thee; for I am fearfully and wonderfully made: marvellous are thy works; and that my soul knoweth right well."
~Psalm 139:14

Recently I cut my thumb and removed the top layer of skin. Instantly, it started to heal itself and make the skin anew. And not just any skin--perfect skin. And a new finger print, too! How amazing!!

There are those moments sprinkled through everyday life when you stop and look at this wonderful world and you just know that everything was divinely created. Sometimes it takes a moment when we're pondering birds wings and how they undeniably formed and fashioned by an all wise Creator, to help us understand that He knows us and He has a just as perfect plan for our life.

I marvel at the range of colours our beautiful world has.
It is the seeds of springtime, the zinnias of summer, the way leaves fall in autumn to make a cover for the sleeping earth, and the ice pictures in winter, the way plants can heal, the birth of animals, eggs hatching, caterpillars becoming butterflies, the miracle of life that help to grow my faith along with God's words in the scriptures.

The way frost edges these in perfect order!
 Then when I study in more detail cells and other such things science, I know, I know, I know that everything is with a purpose; nothing is a mistake. God knows me and loves me and made me perfectly to fit the wonderful plan He has for me. Fearfully. Wonderfully. Perfectly.

Everything is perfect (how many times have I used that word in this post?). Everything is a miracle.

"God writes the Gospel not in the Bible alone, but also on trees, and in the flowers and clouds and stars." 
~ Attributed to Martin Luther

Look at this zinnia!!!
Praise the Lord for His marvelous works!

Yours truly,

    1. I delighted in sharing it and I'm glad that you enjoyed reading it. Aren't the creations so glorious?

      As to a movie. . .ay, I suppose it would! :)


Hullo there, friend! I am thrilled you are here. :)
Comments are always such a blessing.
Just remember Colosians 3:23–24: “And whatsoever ye do, do it heartily, as to the Lord, and not unto men; … for ye serve the Lord Christ.”
To God be the Glory!
