Living in the Truth of Being Fearfully and Wonderfully Made: Embracing Our Divine Design
Hey there, sweet friend! Today, we’re diving deep into one of the most awe-inspiring truths that resonates within each and every one of us: being fearfully and wonderfully made by our Creator.
It’s time to embrace our fearfully and wonderfully made divine design and live life to the fullest, just as we were intended to do.
Now, you might be wondering, “Where does this amazing concept come from?” Well, my friend, let’s turn to the ultimate source of wisdom and inspiration, the Bible. In the book of Psalms, chapter 139, verse 14, we find these beautiful words:
“I will praise thee; for I am fearfully and wonderfully made: marvellous are thy works; and that my soul knoweth right well.”
So, what does it mean to be fearfully and wonderfully made? It means that each one of us is a unique masterpiece, carefully crafted by the hands of the Divine Artist. We are not the result of a random cosmic accident, but rather, a deliberate creation infused with purpose and meaning.
Think about it for a moment. The human body, with its intricate systems and delicate balance, is a marvel beyond compare. From the rhythm of our heartbeat to the complexity of our DNA, every aspect of our existence is a testament to the brilliance of our Creator. Our minds, with their capacity for reason, imagination, and emotion, allow us to explore the depths of knowledge and experience the beauty of life itself.
But it doesn’t stop there. Our true worth lies not only in our physical and intellectual makeup but also in our capacity to love and be loved. The Bible reminds us that we are created in the image of God, and just as He is love, we too possess the incredible ability to love unconditionally and show compassion to others.
Living in the truth of being fearfully and wonderfully made means embracing our unique qualities, talents, and quirks.
It means recognizing that we are not defined by society’s standards of beauty, success, or popularity, but by the inherent value bestowed upon us by our Creator.Jackie Marie Carr
We don’t need to compare ourselves to others because we are fearfully and wonderfully made, just the way we are.
When we truly grasp this truth, it transforms the way we see ourselves and others. Instead of striving for perfection, we can embrace our imperfections as part of our divine design. We can appreciate the diversity in humanity, understanding that our differences make the tapestry of life all the more vibrant and beautiful.
Living in the truth of being fearfully and wonderfully made also empowers us to pursue our dreams and passions.
It frees us from the shackles of self-doubt and encourages us to step into the fullness of who we are meant to be. We can overcome the fear of failure, knowing that we are equipped with unique gifts and abilities to make a positive impact in the world.
Moreover, this truth invites us to treat others with love, kindness, and respect. When we recognize the inherent worth in ourselves, it becomes easier to see it in others as well. We can extend grace and mercy, valuing the inherent beauty and potential in each person we encounter.
I remember as a teenager struggling with so many different insecurities.
One thing that helped me was marrying an amazing man that tells me I am beautiful, and constantly notices the little things about me that he loves. Although, his words really helped to heal the negative self-talk and feelings I had about myself, what helped me the most was my relationship with the Lord.
When you know how loved you are and that you were made on purpose, beautiful and set apart for a specific reason, you can rest in your differences. I love all things beauty, and I want to look my best for my husband and family, but we can strive so hard in this area that we are never content.
So, my friend, let’s revel in the truth of being fearfully and wonderfully made. Let’s celebrate our divine design, acknowledging that we are not accidents but purposeful creations. As we embrace this truth, we can live with confidence, love with abandon, and pursue our dreams with unwavering determination. Remember, you are fearfully and wonderfully made—let that truth guide you on the incredible journey of life.
Love, Jackie Marie Carr
