For you formed my inward parts; you knitted me together in my mother’s womb. I praise you, for I am fearfully and wonderfully made. Wonderful are your works; my soul knows it very well. My frame was not hidden from you, when I was being made in secret, intricately woven in the depths of the earth. Your eyes saw my unformed substance; in your book were written, every one of them, the days that were formed for me, when as yet there was none of them. How precious to me are your thoughts, O God! How vast is the sum of them! If I would count them, they are more than the sand. I awake, and I am still with you.
Have you ever wondered if your life really matters? In quiet moments do you contemplate what kind of impact you are making? In those reflecting minutes before falling asleep do you ever question your significance and value? Well, I can assure you that God is not thinking those thoughts about you.
God has always had you on his mind. Before your first moment of life, he knew all about you. He watched you grow in your mother’s womb. Like Michelangelo’s “David” and da Vinci’s “Mona Lisa”, you are God’s masterpiece and more priceless than any artwork! In fact, before you came to be he had charted all the days of your life. You were created to do the good works that God prepared in advance for you to do (Eph. 2:10). He sent his Son to die just for you and is preparing your eternal home. One day he will take you there to live with him forever.
Does your life matter!? Every second of your every day matters to God!
- Thank God for loving you unconditionally.
- Thank God for creating you as his masterpiece.
Father, thank you for my life. Thank you for the complex systems that make up my body. Thank you for an earth that allows me to live and breathe. Thank you for Jesus who allows me to know you. Thank you for your Holy Spirit who empowers me. Thank you for your generous and gracious gift of life! In Jesus’ name. Amen.
