Do you sometimes feel like your life is random or unplanned, and your course uncharted? Or that you’re just existing with no rhyme or rhythm to your life? Do you sometimes wonder if there’s a plan or purpose for your life? Do you matter to God, or are you just a speck in the universe, just another person living on the face of the earth?
You matter. Yes, you. You are known to God. He made you. He knew you before you were born. He knitted you in your mother’s womb. He has a plan for you – a specific plan and purpose for your life. He does love you. He went to a lot of trouble to save you. Actually He went all the way to the cross, to a horrific and shameful death. Just. To. Save. You. For you.
You are not random. You are not an accident. You were created by God. Knitted in the womb. By God, the creator of the whole universe, the galaxy maker, the master artist, the ultimate designer, who made the heavens and the earth, and made you.
