God’s creation is absolutely nothing less than majestic in beauty and stunning splendor. For this is what I see as I gaze upon it. It makes me think of how He has made me. All my white bones, blue veins, red arteries are woven together and embroidered with various colors. Only God’s handiwork can bring forth something out of nothing! No one else on earth could ever accomplish such a task. I am awestruck in wonder of His dear love for me. My life has been in the palm of His hand before the beginning of time.
He knows what my struggles are before I do. He knows my heart to the inmost part and sees my desire to please Him in all I do. I have momentary fits of carnality and when this occurs, the merry-go-round of frustration and depression start gaining speed going round and round in the circle of my selfishness. At times I struggle with failure in my walk with God as I let my humanness get the best of me. Feelings of inadequacy are running rampant in my mind. I ask myself, “when will this ride ever end?” I am very familiar with the roller coaster of life with its ups and downs. I thank God that I am not where I used to be regarding how I deal with those times in my life.
I still struggle at times, but the ride on the merry-go-round seems not to spin out of control as it used to. I am growing in knowledge of who I am in Christ Jesus. My true identity and worth are found in Him alone. I guess what I am trying to say here is; He knows me, fashioned me together in my mother’s womb, intricately designed who I am and will be, knows my thoughts from afar off, knows the number of hairs on my head, and sees each tear I’ve ever shed.
God has such unconditional, abounding love for me. My life is better only because of Jesus living in me. He is what gives meaning to each of my days, whether good or bad. As I reflect back upon my former years, I no longer look at them through eyes of “woe unto me”, but see that even in my darkest hour He was there for me.

"As I reflect back upon my former years, I no longer look at them through eyes of “woe unto me”, but see that even in my darkest hour He was there for me." A great ending for a great work. Thank you for sharing. Thomas, www.dustonthebible.com
