FEARFULLY AND WONDERFULLY MADE
I exist and I am alive, but where did I come from,
I have no recollection of ever having been before.
I sit in this dark void, jostled from time to time,
The void casting itself in varied positions.
I am nervous and confused, what am I, who am I?
I should be frightened here in the dark but I’m not,
No, I’m peaceful, content and assured of my fate.
Something urges me to continue, to press forth,
But what or who is this presence, what is this drive?
Why do I feel special; what did you say, I’m called out?
You’re knitting me together in the secrecy of this place,
This blackness is but temporary, I will leave it someday soon?
Oh, whose voice do I hear, who talks to me so tender?
What purpose, what special thing, I just don’t understand,
I’m brand new; I continue to wonder what this is all about.
Please explain to me clearly, tell me plainly, what is life?
Why must I leave the security of this place?
I must be born? I must enter a hostile place of dread and fear?
I’ve done nothing wrong, why condemn me to such a fate.
Now I understand, I must live for you, for your purpose.
But still I need to know more, please read me the storyline.
Then like a wondrous picture you show me what is to come.
It is a life of laughter and sadness, one of loneliness and strife,
A life spent in solitude and in want of relational closeness,
One where love given out is never quite returned in kind.
Many things you reveal to me, countless sights I see,
I feel prepared, the map before me to guide me, a plan.
But why can’t you let me remember what you have shown me?
Why must I go through life like a blind man,
Like one in the dark who must feel his way with every step?
You are God, my Creator, tell me why this is so!
I showed you the scenes of your life to assure you of who I AM.
I want you to know that you have a purpose and are so very special.
Yes, you will enter a hostile and painful world shortly,
A world where some will seek to hurt you, some to destroy you.
It is appointed for you to walk in your own strength for a short while,
To rebel against me and yes, to even deny my; but you will return.
In your rebellion you will see sin for what it really is and will come to hate it.
Through your rebellion you will understand what rebellion is and will detest it.
During your time away from me you will turn to dark things, my enemy’s wiles,
But, when you gloriously come back to me we will use your knowledge against my foe.
I will test your faith in me by slowly answering your prayers but they will be answered.
Yet, to truly see how much you love me, some prayers will not be answered; you will understand.
You will long for companionship and for much of your life you will not find it.
But I will reward you for your faithfulness to me and for your steadfastness.
I will provide you with a wonderful crown, a beautiful jewel, a wife that all will envy.
You both will serve me until I come to receive you unto myself.
Your union will be a blessing to this world, a testimony to the saved and unsaved alike.
And when I take you both unto myself I will bless you with wondrous gifts,
Gifts so beautiful and unique that mere earthly words cannot describe.
You both will live with me forever, living, laughing, loving and worshipping me.
So go forth now, it is time for you to enter into the world.
It is time for you to begin your destiny in me.
I have chosen you from before the foundations of the world,
And because I have chosen you, nobody will pluck you from my hands.
Always remember and never forget that my promises are true and just.
And remember that I will be with you always and forever.
This is my promise, this is my purpose, and this is my bond.
