Special to God Almighty

I am special to God Almighty,
For He made me in His image,
And He always wanted me to be His child.
Long before the start of earth time
God planned my life in detail;
He knew everything I’d ever be and do.

In my mother’s womb God formed me;
He handcrafted all the pieces,
And He made sure each part fit in place just so.
As I grew there in the darkness,
I remained safe in His watch-care
I developed just as God Himself designed.

Now that I’m born and grown up,
I’ve begun to call God ‘Father,’
For I know I’m who I am because I’m His.
God knows all my deepest feelings;
He knows what I will think next.
He knows what I’ll say before one word is formed.

I’m surrounded by things I don’t grasp,
While God understands them clearly.
Can I ever hope to understand the Lord?
Where is there that He can’t find me?
Can the night hide me from His eyes?
What’s more special than His constant love for me?

About This Song:
“As I Come Singing” is based on Psalm 139. If you’re not familiar with it, let me just share that it’s one of pro-Lifers’ key passages–and probably one of abortionists’ most hated.

Here are just a few verses from it in the New International Version. . .

13 For you created my inmost being;
you knit me together in my mother’s womb.
14 I praise you because I am fearfully and wonderfully made;
your works are wonderful,
I know that full well.
15 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.
16 Your eyes saw my unformed body;
all the days ordained for me were written in your book
before one of them came to be.

Often when I pray I thank God for making me exactly the way He made me. That’s a lot better than griping about my face or my hair or my height or my weight.

It’s also better than wishing I had the talents this person or that one has.

God intended for me to be the person I am. That should be enough not just to satisfy me, but to make me be proud and make me want to live up to God’s highest expectations of me.

Do you feel that way about yourself?

I’ll be back again next Wednesday.

Best regards,
Roger
