Psalm 16:11 You will show me the path of life; In Your presence is fullness of joy; At Your right hand are pleasures forevermore.

From the book "God's Heart for You"

This is a book that I sell through Blessings Unlimited. It is a small devotion and I love it.

This is from day 2:

Wonderfully Made:
I prise You because I am fearfully and wonderfully made; Your works are wonderful, I know that full well.
Psalm 139:14

Where something is made matters to us. Look at the tag on most any product and you'll likely see a line like these imprinted on it:
Made in China
Made in Mexico
Made in America

And if you could see the line imprinted on your heart, it would read, Made in Heaven. The word made usually conjures up visions of factories and impersonal production lines, but the way heaven creates is entirely different. Every part of you was carefully and intricately crafted by God. Of course, that creation was carried out physically in your mother's womb, but the idea of you started in the heart of heaven itself.

Since the beginning of the world, God has been creating. The word made appears ten times in the first two chapters of Genesis. God made light, starts, animals, and finally His crowning creation-people. When He finished, " God saw all that he had made, and it was very good." Genesis 1:31. What He said over all creation, I believe He said at your birth too: " It is very good".

You and I are works of a master artist. We may hid who we truly are and display to the world something we think is more appealing. We may dip our brushes into the pain and cover ourselves with another image. We may even seek to destroy ourselves completely out of shame. But the truth still remains-we are fearfully and wonderfully made.

God longs for His children to embrace the worth and value He's given them and then use it to bless others. When we know who we are and whose we are, we are free to love, live with joy, and make a difference in the world.

Today, remember God made you the way you are for a reason. Never doubt His call on your life or question that you are loved and wanted by Him.

Full Life: Life is full of beauty. Notice it. Notice the bumblebee, the small child, and the smiling faces. Smell the rain, and feel the wind. Live your life to the fullest potential and fight for your dreams.
