made in His image

Psalm 139:13-17

You made all the delicate, inner parts of my body and knit me together in my mother's womb.
Thank you for making me so wonderfully complex!
Your workmanship is marvelous - how well I know it.
You watched me as I was being formed in utter seclusion, as I was woven together in the dark of the womb.
You saw me before I was born.
Every day of my life was recorded in your book.
Every moment was laid out before a single day had passed.
How precious are your thoughts about me, O God.
They cannot be numbered!

(New Living Translation)

With family and friends expecting, this passage is so fitting as we are surrounded by God's marvelous and incomprehensible creation. How peaceful and soothing to meditate on this passage (and the entire chapter) thinking about lives being formed, lives to come, and the sometimes frustrating and confusing lives we are living!

How do we appropriately thank a God this wonderful, thoughtful, and omniscient?
He delights me :)
I can rest in the peace that He already has it worked out.
He already knows what will happen.
He is already waiting and ready to comfort, console, protect, heal, and rejoice with us through what our sinful world may bless or curse us with.
His ways are perfect, meticulous, and purposeful.
Thank You.
