You are enough

You are enough


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 form 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 a answer I always wondered was it spirit ? our souls ? I think that is spirit. Spirit moves if we choose to or not we have free will. Spirit that's always there it meets us where we are at. Sometimes in the dark places some times re joying in the lighter places

Struggles with my health, what's happening with the world around us the good and the bad. Spirit no doubt is doing something a power creator higher then you or I can understand. We are not suppose to understand. In recent news I can't watch the news with out the political hatred that's spewed across the tv with some extreme groups proclaiming this divided hate is God will. No that's our will and what we have decided to do with our free will. We just look for an outside source to blame. Wondering where is the faith of people? What makes our society so hateful towards things that we fear and are different from us?

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. I have had these functions work in my favor and against my favor. Not because of what I prayed or didn't pray to GOD but because of spirit. Our soul that keeps us waking up every day.

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 mothers 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 a illness that can't be cured. Feeling like I’ll never be good enough. Despite what others think say or do I’m enough in God’s image. That is the understanding it has taken for me to take my first step towards healing and recovery. Life is filled with pain and events that break us down but it’s who we are in Christ that builds us back up piece by piece thread by thread we are woven in our mother whom before we are born and we are ordain all the days of our lives. It’s God creation amazing. God’s enough as are we.

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 feel like you are not enough? You are enough as you are created fearfully and wonderfully in the image of the creator. It does not matter what anyone else thinks.

thanks so much for reading.
