Fearfully and Wonderfully Made

"For You created my inmost being; You knit me together in my mother's womb. I praise You because I am fearfully and wonderfully made." Psalm 139:13-14

I am fearfully and wonderfully made. Wow. I've read this verse a hundred times, heard it in various churches, Bible studies and from well meaning friends. But it is only now, today, that I was able to grasp the meaning - if I could even grasp this amazing thought from God.

Wow. Can you even begin to imagine God while He was creating you? Thinking about it leaves me in awe. HE is GOD! He can just snap his fingers or just utter a word and I could have been created instantly. But no. HE made me, HE took the time and effort to create me - fearfully. My mind is trying to wrap itself in that thought. Fearfully. Does God even fear anything? I think not, but when He created you and me, He was fearful because He loved us even before He created us - His children, His masterpiece.

Fearfully and wonderfully. I closed my eyes to saturate myself in this thought. I can just see the Master when He was creating me. His brows furrowed in concentration. His sweat slowly trickling on His forehead, focused and undeterred. Slowly and carefully chiseling out my features, my characteristics, the sound of my voice, the way I would walk, talk, laugh, cry. The side of His lips slowly twitches upward in a smile as He draws to a finish. His smile widens warmly as He looks at me and He looks at me with great love.

Wow. I open my eyes with tears on my face . I am humbled and in awe. I thank and Praise my Dad - my God for loving me so much! I am in no way perfect in human eyes, I can never be. But in the loving eyes of my Heavenly Father, I am. I AM FEARFULLY AND WONDERFULLY MADE!
