You are Something

You are beautiful and wonderfully created. I can’t repeat this truth enough. You made all the delicate, inner parts of my body and knit me together in my mother’s womb. Thank you for making me so wonderfully complex! Your workmanship is marvelous—how well I know it. Psalm 139:13-14.

In love God stooped down and created us out of the dust of the ground. God took dust and created value. And with that creation in his hand, he breathed life into us. His breath brought the created value to life.

Worthiness is your birthright. You were enough the minute you were born.

Yes, you’ve heard that before. You’ve heard that often here. Yet it quite often doesn’t really sink in as truth. We have those tapes running inside our head that says “not enough about this” and “not enough about that” and the comparing of ourselves to others with scarcity being the loudest voice of all.

Amazingly I have found some science to back me up. This truth is deeply buried throughout scripture but it is nice to have science confirm something this profound, right?

I found this infographic at Yes, Business Insider. This is science, business, and faith all wrapped up into truth. This infographic graphs the extremely unlikely chain of events that would have to occur in order for you to be born.


Oh my. The calculated probability of you existing at all comes out to 1 in 102,685,000. That’s too large a number for math-limited me to even comprehend. Dr. Ali Binazir, the creator of this, concludes that the odds of you being alive are basically zero. Or all planned by God from the very beginning.

Wow. You are something.

Now go forth and feel and act like the miracle that you are.  Be brave.

Read the book

A small book about being the people that hurting people need.

“This is the book that I wish I had had for people in my life that have suffered and needed me to be that compassionate friend. This is the book that I wish others in my life had read before they dismissed my pain, or compared it to theirs, or stumbled horribly through trying to lessen my pain because it was actually really about THEM not feeling comfortable with it.”
