Fearfully and Wonderfully Made

shutterstock_119339392Psalm 139:14 ~  I will praise thee; for I am fearfully and wonderfully made: marvellous are thy works; and that my soul knoweth right well.

Over the past year, I have patiently waited while our (almost four year old) son Clayton started therapy for his speech delay. I waited and waited to hear him talk, carry on conversations, and say, “I love you, Momma!” While I waited, I was often reminded of how fearfully and wonderfully made we are – most people just know how to do certain things; but for others some things don’t come so naturally…and even that is by God’s design. I don’t know why that is; I don’t understand why God chose Clayton to struggle in this area. I don’t understand why we had to wait so long for him to succeed, but I have come to realize that God has made each of us in a wonderful way – we aren’t all the same; we all have different struggles; yet God puts us together with just the right people that he has also wonderfully made to help each other succeed in life. I am so grateful that God made Clayton’s speech therapist with a loving, tender heart and with an enthusiasm and excitement every time Clayton is in her presence.  She has an interest and intelligence in helping little kids like Clayton be all he can be! What a difference a year has made for Clayton and our family! I’m thankful for the road we have been down and continue to travel, and for a loving Heavenly Father who uses a struggle in my son’s life to show me and remind me that we are all special in our own way…each fearfully and wonderfully made in the eyes of Jesus!
