I was trying to attach one of those magic hooks to my bathroom door. I couldn’t make heads from tails from the pictures, but when I found the written instructions, I was fine and didn’t have any trouble from there. Now, that reminded me of Debra who is always saying that she is visual. Apparently I couldn’t be more different. I had to have the written words to understand. That made me think of how different we are!
God made each one of us with our own bends and talents. So many times we envy somebody because our ways are not like theirs. Somehow we think theirs are better. The next time that happens to you grab yourself by the collar and shake!
You are who God made you to be. You are a unique blend of ideas, talents, emotions, strengths and weaknesses. God didn’t make you to be like anybody else. He didn’t want you to be like__________ (fill in the blank) or he would have made you that way!
Psalm 139, what a beautiful passage! Not only is it beautiful, but it affirms who we are…fearfully and wonderfully made. We value handmade items in the market place. Many tout that they are “one of a kind” and somehow that increases the value.
What about you? You’re one of a kind too! And your value? Beyond what your finite mind can behold. Regardless of the circumstances of your birth, you’re no accident. Today, celebrate who you are. Your Creator does! Gwen~
