Today Reminder – 19 June 2014 (Day 14 – Stand up)

A reminder for today
Thank you for making me so wonderfully complex! Your workmanship is marvellous—how well I know it. (Psalm 139:14)

I must admit after reading Psalm 139 again this verse just stood out. I have written to you before on how wonderfully we are made, so to tie this with our current month theme I thought I’ll focus more in our abilities than our looks. Yes you are more beautiful than you know for you are made in His image and therefore you are just awesome. Jip, take a look again in that mirror. You see that beautiful face looking back at you? You are just amazing my friend. You are just the way God wanted you to be and that is no less than exceptional.

Each one of us is blessed with abilities. They are also known as talents. These are gifts that the Lord built into our DNA that separates us from the person next to us. They could be things ranging from being athletic to the love of reading. Each one of us is unique in these combinations that the Lord used to create who you are. Some might not be as open as the next for example we can’t all be great actors or good football players although I might admit that surely would have made things easier. 

When God made you He had a specific and special plan for you and even if you think it isn’t that great – it is great to God. You are His design and He made you perfect regardless of what other might think. So today when we stand up let us remember how special we are truly made and how much God loves each one of us for He made us. So before you say, “This is how I am made, get used to it”, think that you are made by a loving God with a very special purpose. 

Have an awesome day dear friend of Jesus
