Today, I (Mia) invite you into my head, into my heart and into the internal conversations I have with God. Journey with me, because maybe you have some of the same talks. Let's praise Him, because we are fearfully and wonderfully made
Psalm 139: 13-18
Lord, do I realize the miracle of life, the truth that no matter what the circumstances surrounding my conception were, that YOU are the author of it, the creator and sustainer? Lord do I realize the intimacy of what you create?
14 I praise you because I am fearfully and wonderfully made;
Do I, Lord? Do I praise you when I look in the mirror or do I spend more time comparing myself to the images in magazines, my peers, and the imagination of who I think I should be. Do I call what you fearfully and wonderfully made, ugly...worthless...not as good? Do I believe that the works of your hand are wonderful? Do I know these things in the deepest, fullest part of my heart?
15 My frame was not hidden from you
Lord, remind me that you have always known me, my creation was not a secret to you. With your hands, as you did with Adam, you formed my parts.
16 Your eyes saw my unformed body;
Lord, you see me. Before I was born, you knew me. Each day ordained for me, You are well aware of. You know my struggles, You know my joys, You know my thoughts even more than I do. Lord, help me to remember when days seem dark, that you have already called me a conqueror...more than a conqueror. There are days ahead that I can not imagine, but I know you already have them covered. Lord, help me to trust.
17 How precious to me are your thoughts, God!
God, help me to count the truth that you call me loved, chosen, redeemed, valued and your friend as precious. Help me to value your thoughts of me above what the world tries to tell me I am. May I remember that "I am who The Great I AM says I am" (Rachel Barrentine-"Says I Am").
18 Were I to count them,
Do I realize how highly you love me, how many thoughts of me you have. Lord may I get a glimpse of the measure of your love for me and may I turn that love for me into an outpouring of love for others because, well, you think so highly of them too! Lord as I fall asleep trying to comprehend your greatness may I awake each morning still in awe of your love.
Have a great week. He loves YOU!
Love you in the Lord my friends, Mia
