The Purpose Driven Life (2)

This continues from Part 1 previously.

We were all created for a unique purpose. Our birth was no accident. Our parents may not have planned to have us, but God did.

I love this quote.

While there are illegitimate parents, there are no illegitimate children.

The bible says, “You know me inside and out, you know every bone in my body; You know exactly how I was made, bit by bit, how I was sculpted from nothing into something.”

God has prescribed every single detail of our body. He deliberately chose our race, skin colour, hair, everything. He also determined the natural talents we would have and the uniqueness of our personality. He has planned when, where and how we were going to be born and how long we will live too.

He has taken into account human error and sin, and makes no mistakes.

This is a poem was written by Russell Kelfer.

You are who you are for a reason.

You’re part of an intricate plan.

You’re a precious and perfect unique design,

Called God’s special woman or man.

You look like you look for a reason.

Our God made no mistake.

He knit you together within the womb,

You’re just what he wanted to make.

The parents you had were the ones he chose,

And no matter how you may feel,

They were custom-designed with God’s plan in mind,

And they bear the Master’s seal.

No, that trauma you faced was not easy.

And God wept that it hurt you so;

But it was allowed to shape your heart

So that into His likeness you’d grow.

You are who you are for a reason,

You’ve been formed by the Master’s rod.

You are who you are, beloved,

Because there is a God!

I love the last two paragraphs of this poem because it just cuts straight to what all of us are thinking- if God is so loving and kind, why does he allow evil and bad things to happen to us and people all over the world? I believe that at the end of the day, we just need to keep growing that little faith of ours, to know that He has a perfect plan. And that is that everything that happens, happens for a reason, and in His time we’d find out.
