SPRING FORTH NOW
I will praise thee; for I am fearfully and wonderfully made:
marvellous are thy works; and that my soul knoweth right well.
My substance was not hid from thee, when I was made in secret,
and curiously wrought in the lowest parts of the earth.
Thine eyes did see my substance, yet being unperfect;
and in thy book all my members were written,
which in continuance were fashioned, when as yet there was none of them.
How precious also are thy thoughts unto me, O God!
how great is the sum of them!
If I should count them, they are more in number than the sand:
when I awake, I am still with thee.
You and I are the very visible presence of God in the world, despite and in spite of our imperfections. God created us to be in His image, although as a result of life’s challenges we do miss the mark sometimes, however, it does not mean that we are not still His representatives. God knew and knows exactly what our journey will be; life’s challenges and their impact on our lives, before the challenges ever existed and yet He chose us to represent Him, actually serve as the crown of His glory, revelation to all of creation. Therefore, as we Accumulate more of Him, the One we represent, the more we become the image of Him, His intended purpose for our lives. God, I Am that I Am, is made complete in us as we become who He created us to be, revealing the image of God and though we are imperfect, He makes up the difference, thus, revealed in and through our lives. I am fearfully and wonderfully made, and marvelous are God’s works in my creation, therefore, my challenge is to live up to His intent, Soar; positioning myself for takeoff and He will propel me to overcome, amid my shortcomings, to reveal Him, His Word made flesh, real.
