I will praise thee, for I am fearfully and wonderfully made." Psalm 139:14
This is Jacob's Bible verse for this week. We were talking about it and I was telling him that God didn't make any mistakes in making Jacob, He made him exactly as He wanted him to be. And I love him just the way God made him...warts and all! How nice that is to tell that to my children to help them feel better about themselves.
Well, what a hypocrite I am!!! How many times have I begrudged part of my personality or, um, my nose? I have begrudged my no-nonsenseness, my straighforwardness, my strength, and lots of other things about myself and the way God created me. Well, I can't do that any more...not now that I've been convicted! I guess now it's time to ask the Lord to help me believe this verse...and that He meant it about ME too!
