The Forgotten DNA (One Thousand Gifts of Thankfulness)



Forgetful. That's what we are sometimes. 

We forget how intricate and extremely complex we are. How uniquely exquisite. How different our neural networks are from the person next to us. Why our patterns of thinking just seem to be so peculiar to only ourselves and nobody else, and why we sometimes make different choices based on how we think.

Laughter easily fills a room, flowing past brightly lit candles and sifting through like the aroma of the good food on the table because we dare to stick to our own stories.

Not even mothers can dictate the paths of their children's destinies.

What about our bodies? Each of us have something drastically different on our skins. Physical or less obvious and sometimes downright laughable birth marks. Even identical twins have distinguishing identifiable genetic markers (DNA). The wavy lines on their fingers protrude into separate paths of uncontrollable wildness and adventure. If you peek a little bit closer you will see.

Forgetful. That's what we are sometimes.

We don't always remember how skillful and absolutely creative our God must be. It's days like this when I read Psalms 139 that I am reminded yet again of how awesome He is and how forgetful I can be of my own DNA. Today, I ask you to joyfully embrace that very thing that sets you apart from everyone else as you read this. You were made to be your own self on purpose, to bring glory to His name.

Read this:
PSA 139:13-18 NKJV
For You formed my inward parts; You covered me in my mother’s womb. I will praise You, for I am fearfully and wonderfully made; Marvelous are Your works, And that my soul knows very well. My frame was not hidden from You, When I was made in secret, And skillfully wrought in the lowest parts of the earth. Your eyes saw my substance, being yet unformed. And in Your book they all were written, The days fashioned for me, When as yet  there were none of them. How precious also are Your thoughts to me, O God! How great is the sum of them! If I should count them, they would be more in number than the sand...

2. Today, I am thankful for my DNA. Aren't you? :)
