“For you created my inmost being; you “knit me together in my mother’s womb. I praise you because I am fearfully and wonderfully made; your works are wonderful, I know that full well” Psalms 139:13-14.
I was given the sweetest baby shower when I was pregnant with our (only) daughter, Lydia Grace. I received an abundance of beautiful pinks and purples and ruffled and lacy outfits and blankets for her. Many of the gifts were homemade, even. One of my favorites was a beautiful, soft, pink, heart pattern knitted afghan. It is simply beautiful. Lydia loves it, too. She’ll wrap her chubby fingers through the loops of yarn and pull it close to her face.
Just like the intricate care of that blanket as it was knitted with love for me and my daughter, each of us was also knitted together. With love. By our Heavenly Father. Every detail was delicately placed for a purpose.
As women, we tend to get down on ourselves and in the midst of societal pressures and self-imposed expectations we forget who created us and why.
It is with a purpose that we came to be.
But, just like my sweet baby’s blanket, we get soiled. Perhaps it is life, or sin, or shame, or anxiety, or depression, but we can be cleansed by His Love and Power!
My blanket has the neatest little tag that shows who created it. On each of us God has put His stamp! But it’s a blood stain that reminds us that He created us, called us, loves us, and sacrificed for us!
I hope today that you are reminded of how wonderful you are! God loves you and created you! If this article speaks to you please leave a comment! We would love to hear from you!
Lord, remind us of you awesome love for us. We walk through days of trial and uncertainty every day, but you are the One certain we can hold on to during our days. Bless the women who read this and give hope to our generation. Amen.
