“Since his days are determined, and the number of his months is with you, and you have appointed his limits that he cannot pass,…” Job 14:5

Every man and woman has been born and all will die. 

It is God who knits a person together in their mother’s womb.

It is God who determines when their time on this earth is complete. 

His hand directs cells to grow into His image.

His hand tells them to send us back to dust.

Our Lord knows us at a level beyond our self-knowledge.  He knows our inner-workings.  He knows our molecules.  He knows the building blocks of our very form.  He knows our DNA.  He knows me personally not because we were never introduced and He is good with names.  He knows my face because He instructed my DNA to grow in its shape with the nose, mouth, and eyes that I have.

The God of universe is the God of my DNA.

The expanse of His presence is beyond measure.  The span of His arms, from finger tip to finger tip, reaches beyond the expanse of the stars.  Yet, His hand retains the delicacy to touch my DNA.  He has placed every strand of my DNA in the precise order that He wanted.  When He looks upon, there are no mysteries for the One who can see my very composition.

He knows my muscles that are being developed.

He knows my bone mass that is being lost.

He knows my thoughts and which cells contain them.

He knows the hairs on my head not by counting but by directing them to die.

Every breath I take comes from His grace of cells absorbing oxygen.

He raises me to my peak and eases me in my decline.

My defects bow to the same sovereign will as all that is perfect.

God inhabits the infinite and in the infinitesimal. 

No hiding place can remove us from His presence.

No conundrum of the human mind can outwit the One who formed our brain.

We can rest assured that the One who was so particular about our beginning and who has set our end, will be very involved with everything in the middle.

PRAYER: Lord, I humbly stand before you in awe.  It seems so foolish the attempts that I have made to live without recognizing You.  Your hand is evident all around me.  You hand is evident in me.  You are great and greatly to be praise.  I pray this in the precious name of your Son, Jesus Christ.   Amen.


  1. “With God there are no mysteries.” That’s a mighty comforting reality! How thankful I am that he’s not only the all-knowing, all-powerful God of the universe, but he’s also our loving, caring Heavenly Father. How glorious is that?!

  6. Outstanding. Insightful. Uplifting.

  7. This is so true. He is God of the infinite and the infinitismal. I love the miracle of the universe’s vastness, and the proton’s minuteness. Makes me worship in awe. Plus, there’s no DNA exactly like our individual DNA.

  13. This is so great! I love the prayer. We don’t stand humbly before God enough do we? At least I don’t. He is such an awesome and powerful Savior!

  14. Sometimes I have such great difficulty, or maybe I just don’t take enough time, pondering the wonders of God. How big and marvelous He is. AND that all His love and care and creativity was poured into us humans and continues to be very present in our comings and goings, living and dying . thank you for taking the time to share.

  15. What an awesome God

  16. This is beautiful. And beautifully written. Thank you for writing it!

    You mentioned bone loss. This may sound weird, but have you considered making and consuming bone broth? We often discard bones from roasts, chickens, etc, which could be used for soups and will continue to release calcium and other nutrients into the broth in which they are cooked. Another food source for absorbable calcium is alfalfa, which can be eaten as sprouts in a salad, or as a tea. (Please add peppermint tea or another tea to your alfalfa tea to improve the flavor.)

    Thanks again for your encouraging writings.

  17. We can rest assured that the One who was so particular about our beginning and who has set our end, will be very involved with everything in the middle.

    Sometimes those middle times are such a mixture of joy and pain.

    When our middle is filled with pain and His hand is hard to see these are appropriate words indeed. It is comforting to know that many of the great men and women of God had those “dark times of the soul” and yet God was still a part of their middle as well.

    Thank you for a great lesson!

  18. Beautiful JD. I shared it on my facebook page. It is especially poignant considering all of the pro-abortion activists …this is really a point we need to consider in sharing.
