I am a survivor of extremely severe ritualistic childhood abuse and sadistic systematic torture. Without God's intervention in my life I wouldn't be here - NOW is the time for me to tell MY story by speaking the TRUTH about MY life. I will be silenced no more! On this blog I share MY life, MY healing journey; helpful quotes/stuff I come across and MY thoughts along the way. The more I speak out the more liberated I am from the shame and trauma of the abuse. My broken wings are gradually being restored. This blog has helped me begin to get my voice back and documents the journey God is taking me on to heal me from the trauma and damage caused by that most appalling abuse.

MEDITATION ON PSALM 139 v 14

I came across this short meditation on Psalm 139:14. It really spoke to me and I thought I’d share it.

Psalm 139: 14 - “I praise you because I am fearfully and wonderfully made”

We can only imagine the concentrated thoughts that occupied the divine Mind and the gentle, skilful touch of the divine Hand that first shaped man from the dust.

Where did the Creator begin?

Did He start with a skeletal frame? Did He then cover it with an outside layer of skin, which at no place is thicker than three-sixteenths of an inch, is packed with nerve endings to enable man to feel the outside world, and is virtually waterproof.

Into the skin stretched over the frame did He next place the heart that pumps seventy-two times a minute, forty million times a year?

When did He hang the lungs in their sealed compartments so that the rivers of blood necessary for life can deposit the carbon dioxide and pick up oxygen to be carried to every single one of the more than twenty-six trillion cells in the body?

When did He place the brain inside the bony skull and program it to send messages that travel faster than three hundred miles an hour along the nervous system to the entire body?

Truly, we are fearfully and wonderfully and lovingly and personally created by an awe-inspiring, loving Creator!!
