You and I are wonderfully made and we were “knitted together” in our mother’s wombs by the Creator of all creation. You can find accounts of His handiwork in several Bible verses and the most widely used is Psalm 139:13 “For you created my inmost being; you knit me together in my mother’s womb.” (NIV)*.
Over the course of my lifetime I have seen science advance in its never-ending quest to catch up with God, as revealed in His Word—science might not see it that way, but I sure do. I enjoy David’s worship in the Psalms and his thankfulness and gratefulness to God for personally knitting him together in his mother’s womb. Understanding that you are wonderfully made and can have a personal relationship with your Creator is amazingly awesome and real. The personal knowledge of Psalm 139:13 has ministered to me and encouraged me often over the years.
Then one day in the late 1990s it hit me. It hit me like a thunderbolt. Although I was with my family at EPCOT, for whatever reason I was standing all by myself. I glanced over at the Wonders of Life pavilion (no longer open) and looked at the huge metal artwork in front of the pavilion. I took a long hard stare. The metal artwork was twisted to form a large strand of DNA. (Cue the thunderbolt here). When you “open” the strand of DNA is looks like you are opening a strand of yarn (thunderbolt at full power here). I looked at it all anew, “you knit me together in my mother’s womb…my DNA is knit together by the Creator of all creation!
Nice going science! DNA makes us each unique, 100% original and we can see our knitting. You really are a wonderful ball of yarn. Fearfully and wonderfully made. It sure beats being a slimeball created out of the goo.
