I am yours

Psalm 139:14-16

‘I praise you because I am fearfully and wonderfully made; your works are wonderful, I know them full well. My frame was not hidden from you when I was made in the secret place. When I was woven together in the depths of the earth, your eyes saw my unformed body. All the days ordained for me were written in your book, before one of them came to be.’

Lord could you not have made me faster
or musical, or stronger, or gifted at something
What am I good at Lord?
What is my gift, my worth, my contribution?
To this body, that is made up of so many parts

I struggle to accept ‘the me,’ I see
There is so much room for improvement
Never quite good enough to win approval
Really average at everything.

Forgive me when I look at others
And wish I could be more like them
I don’t know their story or their journey
Forgive me when I look with natural eyes
When you look with spiritual eyes

Let me see what you see
Nothing average about me at all
I am fearfully and wonderfully made
Exactly as you ordained
You took such pleasure in creating me
I am yours I am unique, 
I have value because I am yours
I don’t need to be anything 
beyond what you have created me to be,
I accept wholeheartedly who I am in Christ!
