I Am Fearfully and Wonderfully Made

Psalm 139:13-18 NASB
For You formed my inward parts;
You wove me in my mother’s womb.
I will give thanks to You,
 for I am fearfully and wonderfully made;
Wonderful are Your works,
And my soul knows it very well.
My frame was not hidden from You,
When I was made in secret,

 And skillfully wrought in the
depths of the earth;
And in Your book were all written 
The days that were ordained for me,
When as yet there was not one of them.
How precious also are Your
thoughts to me, O God!
How vast is the sum of them!
If I should count them, they would 
outnumber the sand
When I awake, I am still with You.
We recently put Birthing Kits together to take to 
Zambia for Medical Missions. 
Some Americans said, “why don’t we put this and that in, 
why don’t we do this or that?” 
They do not understand the poverty that 
the majority of Zambians live in,  
$2.00 a day or less is what 80% of them live on. 
Some do not even have that $2.00.
For most Americans it is impossible to understand the 
extreme poverty that a large percent 
of the people in the world live in. 
They just do not have a knowledge base to understand. 
The old saying, “seeing is believing” is so true.
The first time I went to Zambia I was so overwhelmed by the extreme,  widespread poverty. When I came home, 
I could hardly bare to spend money on clothes or shoes. 
I definitely had more than the clothes on my back 
and many pairs of shoes in my closet. 
I was not walking around barefooted. 
I still have  a lot of trouble with that. 
My closet has a lot less clothes than it used to. 
There are not near as many shoes as before. 
I have more than I need.
Seeing truly is believing. It has change my perspective. 
And I thank God.
Many Americans do not understand laying down 
on the cold dirty ground to deliver a baby. 
They can not comprehend why we need to send 
a few simple items in Birthing Kits.
What good can a piece of plastic, a scalpel, two pieces of string, two pairs of rubber gloves, two anti-bacterial wipes, four gauze, soap, a baby blanket, and a tiny baby cap do?
 What good can those items possible do?
The plastic can provide a clean place for 
the mother to lay on to birth her baby.
The clean string can be used instead of dirty 
elephant grass or dirty rag to tie the cord. 
The clean sterile scalpel can be used to cut the cord.
The wipes can clean the birthing site as well as hands.
The sterile gauze can clean the baby’s mouth, eyes, ears, etc.
The gauze can help stop some of the bleeding of the mother.  
The rubber gloves can keep germs off the baby and out of the mother. 
Think about what happens when they do not have these things.  
Dirty hands, dirty birthing site, dirty hands wiping the eyes, mouth, nose of the baby. 
Dirty hands handling the cord and using elephant grass to cut the cord. On and on. 
Thank you Father that I was born in America.
But most of all Father, Thank you that you have allowed me to travel to Zambia four times to have my perspectives changed.
Thank you Father that you formed my inward parts;
Thank you that You gave me the Mother you did.
Thank you that I am fearfully and wonderfully made;
Thank you Father for writing the days of my life in Your book.
O, God how can I comprehend the depth of Your thoughts of me?
Thank you Father that You are still with me when I awake.
Father God, thank You for giving me another year to live and serve You.
In Jesus Christ Most Holy and High Name I Pray.
Why take the time to gather supplies and make the Birthing Kits? Maybe, just maybe we will get to be apart of some ones precious birth. God has already known the unformed substance of these children and He knows the number of their days.

Open our Eyes So We May See You O God.

2 Kings 6:16-17
Open our eyes Lord that we may see the armies of horses and chariots of fire all around us, just as they were all around Elisha.
Open our eyes to satan so that we may see his tricks.
Satan puts blinders on us in many different forms.
He blinds us with too much to do in the name of work, rest, relaxation and recreation.  
We neglect You.
He blinds us with problems with our children, families and friends.
We fail to see Your might and power.
We fail to praise and honor You.
He blinds us with health issues and steals our energy so we run out steam.
We do not think we can service You.
He blinds us to put him first on our list. 
Then all of the things of the world will be ours …….
We put You last on our list, or not at all.
Open our eyes Oh Lord,  that we may see that You will defeat satan if we only stand firm and pray as Elisha did.
Open our eyes Lord that we may see the armies of horses and chariots of fire all around us…
Ephesians 6: 12-13
For our struggle is not against flesh and blood, but against the rulers,  against the powers, against the world forces of this darkness, against the spiritual forces of wickedness in heavenly places.
Therefore, take up the full armor of God, so that you will be able to resist in the evil day, and having done everything, to stand firm.

Have a Blessed Day.
