A special object of God’s love.

You are who you are for a reason.You’re part of an intricate plan.

You’re a precious and perfect unique design,called God’s special woman or man.

You look like you look for a reason.

Our God made no mistake.

He knit you together within the womb, you’re just what He wanted to make .

The parents you had were the ones He chose,and no matter how you feel,they were custom-designed with God’s plan in mind, and they bear the Master’s seal.

No, that trauma you faced was not easy.

And God wept that it hurt you so;

but it was allowed to shape your heart, so that into His like-ness you’d grow.

 You are who you are for a reason,

you’ve been formed by the Master’s rod.

 You are who you are, beloved , because there is a God.

 This poem by Russell Kelfer is a fun poem that always cheers me up when I feel down about myself. Knowing that God had us in mind before He laid the very foundations of the world changes the way I look at everything.  We may come from a home where we were dubbed a mistake. We may not have been  accepted by our parents or peers in our childhood or even now, but knowing that we are the special objects of God’s love changes everything.

Ephesians 1:3-6

Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, who has blessed us with every spiritual blessing in the heavenly places in Christ,
just as He chose us in Him before the foundation of the world, that we should be holy and without blame before Him in love,
having predestined us to adoption as sons by Jesus Christ to Himself, according to the good pleasure of His will,
  to the praise of the glory of His grace, by which He made us accepted in the Beloved.

  1. Luke, I can’t express how much your words edify and lift ME and my prayers for other who contend with the same doubts. Don’t know why God put that upon your heart TODAY, but I am thankful for it.
