I’m starting this new year and decade by writing a series on miracles. My premise in part is based on a mantra I took to heart after hearing #Dr. Johnnie Colemon recite it to her congregation. With boldness, conviction, and authority she told us, “You are a unique, individual, unrepeatable, miracle of God.”
I’ve pondered those words over the years as I witnessed miracles in my life and the lives of others. As a labor coach, I can attest to this saying that each one of us is fearfully and wonderfully made. If you have ever witnessed the birth of a child, you can only call it a miracle when that infant takes its first breath after being separated from the mother’s umbilical cord.
Worldwide, approximately 15,000 births take place each hour. That’s equivalent to about 250 miracles joining the human race each minute. Each one has its own unique DNA, fingerprints, even identical twins. Over 7.5 billion people in the world and no two share the same fingerprints. I would say that’s a miracle in and of itself.
As you reflect on your uniqueness and make resolutions in January, know that you have been fearfully and wonderfully made by a #creator that has given you the miracle of life and stamped you with your own set of fingerprints. You have been created for a reason. The creator didn’t make any mistakes. As his unique child, his plan in creating you is for you to prosper and be in good health according to 3 John 1:2.
In upcoming blogs, I will explore the miracles that God has for you. They are waiting for you to claim them and I will show you how.
You are loved, capable, intelligent, beautiful, fearfully and wonderfully made by a loving father. #God’s will is that you and your children have an abundant, healthy and fulfilled life. Please show your support of this post by liking, commenting, following me, and brightening someone’s day by sharing it with them.
Merry Christmas and Happy New Year!
In a desert land he found us, in a barren and howling waste. He shielded us and cared for us; he guarded us as the apple of his eye. Deuteronomy 32:10 NIV
