Things aren’t as they used to be

“I praise you because I am fearfully and wonderfully made; your works are wonderful, I know that full well. 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, your eyes saw my unformed body. All the days ordained for me were written in your book before one of them came to be” (Psalm 139:14–16).

This verse suggests that I should not be complaining, moaning and groaning about the non-working or poor-working parts of my body. Since I am fearfully & wonderfully made (Scripture says so) and God’s works are wonderful, then my body is as it’s supposed to be.

Every day has been pre-arranged. God is aware of the exact state of my body today, yesterday, and tomorrow.

“Though the process of aging continues, inwardly you grow stronger with the passing years. Those who live close to Me develop an inner aliveness that makes them seem youthful in spite of their years,” Jesus Calling by Sarah Young.

I must trust that He knows what He’s doing & all is going according to plan.

  • Do you grow tired of certain body parts not functioning as they should?
  • Can you turn the grumbling into thanking God for what is going well in your life & what body parts are functioning well?
