Uniquely Designed

















"The farmer knows just what to do, God has given him understanding." Isaiah 28:26

Each farmer takes special care to work the soil, weed, fertilize, and give proper attention to his herbs. He knows each one and exactly what it needs. God treats us the same way. He is gentle, loving, and kind. He uses tender, loving hands and sensitively deals with each of us. God created each of us uniquely and he interacts with us accordingly.

I must remember to consider the differences of others in light of GOD's design. I am crazy, outspoken, yet sensitive. I do not fit a mold carved out by others. I must not expect my friends and family to fit a preconceived mold. I must take special care to cultivate relationships, embracing differences and loving with a tender heart of compassion.

Growing in grace,

Andrea

We easily look and compare with each other's differences, forgetting that the Farmer had tended each plant with His loving care and with His master plan laid out prior to putting those seeds.
Turns out to be, these differences are what make an ensemble of a beautiful garden.
We all need to keep trusting what the Farmer has planned for each of us and start appreciating our differences. Great post. God bless.

I just came in from cutting iris blooms from our garden and am enjoying your signs of pink in your garden. I am so thankful for God's tender loving hands. I like what the previous commenter said about the differences making a beautiful garden, how true!

It seems to me that the bigger the world gets, more the pressure grows that we should all be the same. We're NOT supposed to be the same, our differences make us special. Thanks for the reminder.

Andrea,

Love your post this morning! I have to keep that in mind a lot since I have a tendency to put people into my mold sometimes. I love the uniqueness that each person brings into this life.

Keeps us from being bored!

To have a heart like God and see His creation uniquely would make a wonderful world. Your words are beautiful and to the point. Love it!

Andrea,

You are a beautiful woman inside and out that I can tell by your writngs. Yes He designs each one of us so intricately and uniquely, but we are all formed by the same hand. We have a common bond with one another and that is to see life through His eyes, speak it with His mouth and heart it with His words as we let Him reside deep within us. You my friend, are absolutely the best! I love you Sister.

(((Hugs)))

Andrea I don't fit the mold others have made either. I agree with Alleluiabella, your heart is beautiful, and it shines through your writings.

Love Robin

I think when God made me, he broke the mold. LOL! How lucky we are that none of us are the same. But how wonderful that God's love stirs in our hearts so we may have understanding, respect and compassion towards others.
