Don’t Take Yourself For Granted

handstandsYour big toes have two bones each while the rest have three.

The acid in your stomach is strong enough to dissolve razor blades.

Your thumb is the same length as your nose.

The human brain cell can hold 5 times as much information as the Encyclopedia Britannica.

At the moment of conception, you spent about half an hour as a single cell.

Your nose can remember 50,000 scents.

Your body gives off enough heat in 30 minutes to bring half a gallon of water to a boil

If your eye was a digital camera, it would have 576 megapixels

You are beautifully and wonderfully made.


For You shaped me, inside and out.
You knitted me together in my mother’s womb long before I took my first breath.
I will offer You my grateful heart, for I am Your unique creation, filled with wonder and awe.
You have approached even the smallest details with excellence;
Your works are wonderful;
I carry this knowledge deep within my soul.
As I took shape in secret, carefully crafted in the heart of the earth before I was born from its womb.
You see all things;
You saw me growing, changing in my mother’s womb;
Every detail of my life was already written in Your book;
You established the length of my life before I ever tasted the sweetness of it.
Your thoughts and plans are treasures to me, O God! I cherish each and every one of them!
How grand in scope! How many in number!                                                

If I could count each one of them, they would be more than all the grains of sand on earth. Their number is inconceivable!

Even when I wake up, I am still near to You.

Psalm 139:13-18
