YOU ARE HIS


Psalm 139:14 
I will praise You, for I am fearfully and wonderfully made;
Marvelous are Your works,
and that my soul knows very well.

One of my joys of blogging comes from sharing blessings and God's word, and hoping that if verse helps me, it may help you. Sharing personal stories comes easy for me. I hope that those who read my notes of blessing focus on the love and presence of our God and not so much on my details.

We all experience trial; it's inevitable. Lately, it seems that many have been dealt their fair share. I, nor those I love so dearly, are immune. No, my trials cannot compare to those of others. But, God's words apply to all. This past week, another trial came my way. Health issues plague many, and may even affect you. For the past 8 months, I've battled spine pain, fatigue, spasms, and weakness in my limbs. For me, it's somewhat expected. But, I'll save that story for another day. More recently, I faced the unknown of another health situation. Being scared is a natural reaction; scared of the tests, scared of the results, scared of the meaning.

Thankfully, God shows Himself. Always.

In Sunday's morning church service, the pastor referenced Psalm 139:14 and reminded me that I'm one-of-a-kind. I am a person built of precise engineering. He makes no mistakes. 

As I sat at the check-in desk at the diagnostic center Wednesday, this verse echoed in my mind. When the receptionist answered a phone call (which turned to be lengthy), my fear overtook my mind and I admittedly became frustrated with the wait. That wait, though, allowed me to glance around the desk where my eyes settled on a calendar that proudly displayed a daily message. This message wasn't any message. It was Biblical scripture reminding me that I am unique, created without fault by God. I knew, no matter the test result, I would trust God. First, I was overwhelmed with pride that this receptionist proudly shared her Christianity. Second, I smiled and thanked God for His blessings and trust in me to carry out His ways, even if that meant an unwanted medical result. My prayers had asked Him to protect me and calm me. I was nervous as the test began, but knew I was going to be okay. It's hard to describe to others, but in knowing Him, I felt assured that no matter the result, I was His and that's all that mattered. He always guides.

I'm happy to share that the test results were clear! Relief swept through me, my husband, family and friends. For me, it was one more affirmation that God is always in charge. The church service, the message on the desk calendar, me- they are all controlled by God. He is ever-present. There is no coincidence, there is only God. And, that my soul knows well.
