Wonderfully Made

How often are we more affected by the world says about us than what God says about us? We are so quick to believe the lies that so-called friends, enemies and Satan hurl at us, but close our ears to the words of Jesus. Who has pure thoughts and intentions? Who sees our heart? Certainly not the world!

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. Psalm 139:13-16

Now the word of the Lord came to me, saying, “Before I formed you in the womb I knew you, and before you were born I consecrated you; I appointed you a prophet to the nations.” Jeremiah 1:4-5

You did not choose me, but I chose you and appointed you that you should go and bear fruit and that your fruit should abide, so that whatever you ask the Father in my name, he may give it to you. John 15:16

When the world tries to bring you down by telling you that you aren’t good enough or that no one really cares about you, remember the words of Christ. He knew us before we were formed, we have been consecrated (to make or declare sacred; set apart or dedicate to the service of a deity) and most of all we are chosen! No matter how insignificant others may make you feel, Jesus Christ has chosen you- He loves you so much that He died for you. He knows everything about you- where you’ve been what you’ve done. And He loves you” more than you can imagine, more that you can fathom.”

Matthew West

Take a look at the mountains Stretching a mile high

Take a look at the ocean Far as your eye can see

And think of Me

Take a look at the desert Do you feel like a grain of sand?

I am with you wherever Where you go is where I am

And I’m always thinking of you

Take a look around you I’m spelling it out one by one

[Chorus] I love you more than the sun

And the stars that I taught how to shine

You are mine, and you shine for me too

I love you yesterday and today And tomorrow,

I’ll say it again and again I love you more

Just a face in the city Just a tear on a crowded street

But you are one in a million And you belong to Me

And I want you to know That I’m not letting go Even when you come undone

I love you more than the sun and the stars that I taught how to shine

You are mine, and you shine for me too

I love you, yesterday and today Through the joy and the pain I’ll say it again and again

I love you more I love you more

And I see you And I made you

And I love you more than you can imagine More than you can fathom

I love you more than the sun And you shine for me
