There is a God, our Heavenly Father, who created this world. [and His Son, Jesus Christ, died as a sacrifice to pay our penalty for our sins]
Recently, while helping our at the Wednesday children’s program, I was playing soccer with the children and twisted/sprained/rolled my left ankle. It wasn’t too bad, but definitely kept me from working or running around. Then, that Sunday, my ankle was better and we just got a new team and they wanted to play soccer, so I accepted. The game was going GREAT, until...i twisted/sprained/rolled my right ankle...bad. And this was 2 days before going into the jungles in Peru for a week to lead another team. *gulp*
But I rested and took care of it, and the swelling went down, so off I went to the jungle. And that week was so great! My ankles continued to heal and it was a great reminder:
God (our Heavenly Father) CREATED everything.
Like, how did my ankles know how to heal? Like it was a reminder that THIS was not an accident. This life is not ‘random.’ I WAS NOT an accident. God, my Heavenly Father, has a purpose for my life.
Jeramiah 1:5 – I knew you before you were formed within your mother’s womb; before you were born I sanctified you and appointed you as my spokesman to the world.
He called us by name before we were born! (Isaiah 49:1)
Psalm 139:13-15 –You made all the delicate, inner parts of my body, and knit them together in my mother’s womb. Thank you for making me so wonderfully complex! It is amazing to think about. Your workmanship is marvelous – and how well I know it.
