Sample Devotion: Day 1
For you created my inmost being; you knit me together in my mother’s womb.
I praise you because I am fearfully and wonderfully made.
Are you artsy? Athletic? Loud? Quiet? Serious or hilarious? Competitive or easygoing? Do you like to build things, cook, or go for hikes? No matter
what you like or how you look, you are made fearfully and wonderfully by God. And that word “fearfully” doesn’t mean “scary”—it means “to inspire awe,” as in awesome.
The world (including social media) will try to tell you otherwise. That you don’t measure up.
But let it sink in that the Creator of the universe, who is in charge of everything, intentionally sewed you together stitch by stitch before you were born. And all those special things about you—the shape of your eyebrows, the sound of your laugh, the things that make your brain tick, that you’re curious about, that bring an uncontrollable smile to your face—God put all that in you, and He did it on purpose. God made you, and He made you awesome.
What makes you you? What do you love to do? What excites or calms you? In the notes section, sketch a picture of yourself or of something that symbolizes you. Thank God for making you exactly who you are. Write the words “wonderful” and “awesome” somewhere on the page to remind yourself how God created you.
