On Being the Unique Individual That God Made Us

I will praise You, for I am fearfully and wonderfully made;
Marvelous are Your works,
And that my soul knows very well.

Psalm 139:14

New King James Version (NKJV)

           In and of itself, there's nothing wrong with being different. Each of us are unique in our own way.  We are born as individuals distinct from anyone else.  Our upbringing, environment, and education shapes us to believe what we believe and know what we know.  

        As children most of us were protected and provided for and if we have survived into adulthood both of those happened to some degree.   Some of our lives have been more difficult while others have had immunity to many hardships and struggle.   No matter which the case may be, each of us is accountable for what we do with what we learn and the choices we make in our lives.

         We have meaning and purpose--every one of us.   We must decide not to forfeit what we have been given and the blessings that are ours.  

But in fact God has placed the parts in the body, every one of them, just as he wanted them to be.

1 Corinthians 12:18

New International Version (NIV)
