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;
your works are wonderful,
I know that full well.
My frame was not hidden from you
when I was made in the secret place,
when I was woven together in the depths of the earth.
Your eyes saw my unformed body;
all the days ordained for me were written in your book
before one of them came to be.
You know, if you were the only person on this Earth, Jesus would have gone to the cross for you, and you alone — even with all of your mistakes, pain, heartache, and messy life.
He died for you specifically while knowing all of the things you would do or not do in your lifetime on this Earth. And He still chose to experience the death He did and save your soul on that rugged cross.
You aren’t your likes on social media, the amount of texts you receive on your birthday, your appearance, or even the amount of friends you have.
You aren’t your success, your career, the amount of money you have, or your family.
And above all, you aren’t your mistakes, your pain, or your brokenness.
You are a precious ruby handcrafted by our Maker in Heaven.
You matter and God knew exactly what He was doing when He created you. He did not make a mistake.
He meant to give you that quirky laugh, that caring heart, and that love for those in need. He specifically gave you each quality that you have and He did so for a unique person. He made each person different for a reason.
A puzzle needs every single piece to become the masterpiece it is meant to be.
Some may say the corners are better and some may say they like the middle pieces, but the one who made the puzzle is the one who said every piece is just as important as the other.
Each piece works together to make something beautiful, and that is what God intended for each of us on this planet.
We all bring something important and necessary to the table. Your talents are just as important as those of the ones you admire in others.
God loves that pastor on television just as much as He does that homeless person begging on the street.
It doesn’t matter what you’ve done in your life… it matters what you choose to do next.
You are one choice away from unlocking all that you’ve been created for.
When Jesus died on the cross and conquered hell, He made you blameless in God’s eyes. You aren’t worth what this world tries to tell you that you are — you are that missing piece of the puzzle that God has been searching for for so long, and is so excited to find when you finally come home.
You are worthy of freedom, healing, recovery, joy, and peace that surpasses all understanding.
You are worthy of supportive friends, a loving family, and laughter in this tough world.
This world will drag you down if you let it… but God can do greater things than you ever imagined if you let Him be the author of your worth.
Hannah Smith, author of the Moving Mountains blog, is a woman who feels she has experienced a lot of life in her 30 years.
At 19 years old, Hannah joined the Army. After moving around the country, getting a divorce and losing what seemed like everything, she landed back where God wanted her in Ohio, even though she fought the whole way. She is now in charge of the prayer team at her church and seeks the Lord with all she’s got.
Hannah is married and a RN, but works as a stay-at-home mom to her daughter, Isabella, and her son, Grayson.
She loves to hike, travel, drink coffee, and talk about Jesus. Hannah also has a heart to create a home and life in which she can be a safe place for the hurting and the broken.
To her readers, Hannah says, “I believe that God set every single one of you reading this apart, for such a time as this. It is my hope and prayer that God would use the words I say to change your life in a way you and I never thought possible!”
