I Am Formed by God
By Kristi Woods
“And the Lord God formed man from the dust of the ground and breathed into his nostrils the breath of life, and the man became a living being.” Genesis 2:7
Go ahead–tuck this verse in your heart. Keep it near, assuring every ounce of “you” of God’s interweaving.
As a strong-willed gal, I can make plans to go here and there and look to the future. But sometimes I get so busy that I forget God.
I run ahead, failing to remember where I came from.
My boys weight-lift. They’re big on maxing out. (Lifting as much as they safely can—taking it to the max.) Consider this memory verse ours for maxing out. So go ahead. Tuck this one in your heart.
Our Creator is our everything–our all in all. We are His–the work of His hand. You and I stand as evidence of His creativity. We’re not junk. We’re wonderfully and fearfully made.
This week, as we commit today’s verse to memory, remember where you came from. Remember God.
Recall that you are the beautiful handiwork of the Alpha and the Omega. Seek Him for guidance. Refuse to run ahead. Be diligent to remember.
You are formed by His hand and belong to Him.
