Fearfully and wonderfully made

Fearfully and wonderfully made


Fearfully and wonderfully made.      

The human body is fearfully and wonderfully made.    

When I think of the word nucleus I still remember how I was so fascinated with cells and how they multiplied and divided almost magically.

How did that first cell's nucleus from inside of my body? did it just show up one day and say hey girl what's up?  As I did my research doctors can not even explain what that energy is that creates those cells to form and divide. There's an answer I always wondered was it the spirit ? our souls?

The functions of the human body are incredible.  I am pecking away quickly at my computer keyboard at this very moment I can type all that I hear and see with speed.

The function of the digestive tract and the related organs, the heart,  the formation and function of nerves and blood vessels, the cleansing of the blood through the kidney the complexity of the inner and middle ear the sense of taste and smell and so many other things that we barely understand. Each one beyond human's ability to duplicate. Truly we are fearfully and wonderfully made.

How grateful are we to know there is a creator even one who creates humans with missing genetic material or addition genetic material he knew purpose when he created Bella and I he has a plan for us. The core theory of creation could perhaps be in this scripture.

As I grew up I wanted to know what made me who I am, why I was missing a deleted piece of genetic material and above all the million dollar question WHY me lord? How many times a day do you ask Why me lord?

as I opened up my mind and heart this scripture touched me so deeply

Psalms 139:13-16

(13) For you created my inmost being; you knit me together in my mother's womb,

(14) I praise you because I am fearfully and wonderfully made, your works are wonderful, I know that full well.

(15) My frame was not hidden from you when I was made in the secret place when I was woven together in the depths of the earth,

(16) Your eyes saw my unformed body. All the days ordained for me were written in your book before one of them came to be.

Fearfully and wonderfully made me stop and think of living with a small piece deleted chromosome in a different light.  Spirit is what I think forms inside of that tiny cell that changes inside of the divided cells. I only wish I knew for sure.

My favorite scripture as it has provided comfort and peace while I was struggling with coping with the diagnoses of having a piece of genetic material missing inside of me.  Imagine for a moment how hopeless you may feel being diagnosed with an illness that can't be cured.

Thank you for reading.

I wanted to share with all of you this one paragraph is what helped me cope with my hopeless moment when I first received the results of my genetic test.

Do you have a favorite quote or scripture that has helped you during your hopeless moments?
