Psalm 139:13-16

Psalm 139:13-16 
English Standard Version (ESV)

  I've always loved the idea of God knitting us together in the womb.  I've never knitted anything, but it's an investment in time and love.  Just as knitting a large blanket takes months, a child takes 40 weeks in the womb, a process during which God is crafting us with love -- you are fearfully and wonderfully made.  God knows you completely -- God is the only one who knows you this well.  Before you live out your days, God knows them.
  Again, as I've mentioned, it's a remarkable reminder of grace that God knows everything about you and loves you enough to die for you.  God knows every mistake and poor choice and still ascends the cross in Calvary, because God is invested in you, is willing to die for you, and wants to spend eternity with you.  God yearns for relationship with you.  God looks at you as a beloved child, holding you in God's hand while knowing every detail, every flaw and every highlight.  God will never leave nor forsake you, for God has never given up the claim on you that the artist has. 
  May you hold your head high today as a beloved creation of God.
