Before I formed you in the womb I knew you, and before you were born I consecrated you…
God knew me before he formed me in my mother’s womb. Just as he knew you.
He designed us just as he wanted us to be. And we are perfect. We should embrace who we are and rejoice in the fact that God cared enough to be a part of our design.
For you formed my inward parts; you knitted me together in my mother’s womb.
As God knits us together, I believe he subtlety adds gifts and talents to our being. Gifts that we need to discover on our own and work toward perfecting. Anything that we work toward is more valuable than something just handed to us.
I believe that God gave to me the gift of expression, through writing. That might be up for debate by some, but it’s how I feel. I learned about writing in my junior high school days and fell in love with it. I wrote a lot of poetry and journaled at that time. Then life happened and for four decades my writing was pretty much non-existent. Well, except for my “letter to the editor” writings. Then I got it back in my 50’s and began writing poetry again. And as you can see, I write faithfully now.
I may not be able to do many things with any amount of expertise, but I feel I can express myself fairly well through the written word. I believe this is my gift. And when you find your gift you need to share it. The gift isn’t about you. It’s about giving it to others. And it’s about glorifying God through it.
A gift given.
Find your gift. Embrace it. Share it. ♥️
I praise you, for I am fearfully and wonderfully made. Wonderful are your works; my soul knows it very well.
