“I praise you, for I am fearfully and wonderfully made.
Wonderful are your works; my soul knows it very well.” Psalm 139:14
You were handmade by the same one who made the moon. This morning as I was reading Psalm 139, I saw this great light hanging in the sky and was once again taken aback that the same Creator who dreamed up the universe also knit me together in the womb of my mother. Think about that. Isn’t it incredible? He is incredible. And so are you, his unique one of a kind creation.
“For you formed my inward parts;
you knitted me together in my mother’s womb” Psalm 139:13
As we begin a new year, be reminded through this chapter in His Word that you are fearfully and wonderfully made.
As the Almighty Father’s hands fashioned you, he weaved in your weaknesses so you would find strength in Him.
He left room for places that only His Spirit can complete. We are incomplete without Him. In Him those weaknesses are turned into strengths.
Some adjectives the psalmist used that describe you include:
That means that absolutely every part of you has been redeemed by the blood of Jesus to be used for God’s glory.
On the road ahead of you in the coming months, be encouraged that when God made you, he saw these days.
“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.” Psalm 139:16
He saw the 364 days left in this year, and He knew what you would need to be made of to walk with Him through them. So put your hand in Jesus’ hand, and tread onward. He knows the prints on your fingers as He squeezes them tightly, reassuring you that He’s with you every step of the way.
Beautiful daughter, whom He dreamed up, He delights in you!
Refocus your thoughts on how He made you unique and purposefully and placed you right where you are to minister His love on those around you.
Narrow your focus
Reflect on how He formed you in advance with unique qualities to serve those closest to you.
He knew who you would marry, and He gave you qualities to compliment each other.
He knew your children in advance, and He gave you qualities to serve them well.
He knew every good work He had for you to accomplish, and He gave you qualities to complete the task.
He is a good, all knowing Father, and in Him you lack nothing.

New Year Bible Challenge
I’ll be honest, I get sidetracked in life, how about you, friend? A few years ago, I was tired of spinning on a hamster wheel, feeling like I was making no progress in areas of my life. I prayed and God told me that this was not the way He desired for me to live. He showed me through His word that I AM His daughter, and that there is a better way. A refocused, narrower way.
We can ask God to make our vision clearer for our lives, more effective to know Him better and see Him more clearly right where we are. To have more peace and fulfillment in our relationship with Him, our marriages, our mothering, and our homes. He will flood those areas of our lives with new clarity and breath and life and beauty when we ask Him and meditate on His Word towards those areas in our lives.
His Word brings beauty to the most mundane parts of our lives! By the end of January, if you join us, you will be folding laundry, or reading to your children, or having a conversation with a friend, realizing you are standing on Holy Ground with Jesus, doing exactly what He created you to do, communing with Him and doing good work for His glory, right where He has placed you!
