31 for 21...Made Perfect

Psalm  139:13-16
13 For You formed my inward parts;
You covered me in my mother’s womb.
14 I will praise You, for I am fearfully and wonderfully made;
Marvelous are Your works,
And that my soul knows very well.
15 My frame was not hidden from You,
When I was made in secret,
And skillfully wrought in the lowest parts of the earth.
16 Your eyes saw my substance, being yet unformed.
And in Your book they all were written,
The days fashioned for me,
When as yet there were none of them.

I love Psalm 139, David speaks of God's ~perfect~ knowledge of man. David leaves nothing out when talking about what God knows of him, from forming him in the womb to each and every thought or action.
Verse 13-16 really struck me, I thought The God we serve knew perfectly well who he was knitting in my womb when Jonathan came to be. God created Jonathan, he is fearfully and wonderfully made! Jonathan having Down Syndrome wasn't a mistake, or an Oops...nope he sure wasn't! Humans aren't mass produced on an assembly line where there are often flaws and errors. No, we were created by "The Creator" of Heaven and Earth, who has an incomprehensible eye for detail and perfection. In the worlds eyes Jonathan may look as though he has a defect. When I look at him I see a handcrafted treasure, because I know from whom he was created! 

Thank you Lord for giving us Jonathan, he is a blessing!

I have enjoyed your post about Jonathan. I watched a boy and worked with him daily when my husband and I lived in Missouri with Down Syndrome. I do miss him so much now that the Lord has moved us to Maine, but he is doing so well and I loved watching him grow up so much while I was down there. I watched him take many milestones in his life. What a joy it has been reading about your Jonathan and what a blessing he is. I also love the verses you have posted, they are perfect. Take care.
