Wonderfully Made!

(Based on Psalms 139)

For you created my inmost being, you knit me together in my mother's womb. Even then you knew I would become your beloved daughter. My frame was not hidden from you when I was made in the secret place. With your hands you molded me for your purposes. Your eyes saw my unformed body and you saw the life ahead that would bring me to the cross. You knew, even then, the wrong choices I’d make and as you created me you grieved over what was to come. You knew the pain that would be suffered and a tear fell from your face. All the days ordained for me were written in your book before one of them came to be. When I was woven together in the depths of the earth, you smiled for I was your chosen daughter.

As my life began outside the womb I would search for you, only I would not realize it was you when the time came for you to be revealed to me. I would run into the darkness but even the darkness could not hide me. The darkness did not hide my shamefulness from you; my darkness shined like day to you. I did not understand that darkness is as light to you. I would try to flee from you but where could I go that you would not find me? No matter the journey, no matter the choices made you were always there beside me. Where could I go from your Spirit? Where could I flee from your presence?

I praise you because I am fearfully and wonderfully made; your works are wonderful, I know that full well. All that you planned for me is good
