Genesis 2:7

Genesis 2:7

Then the Lord God formed a man from the dust of the ground and breathed into his nostrils the breath of life, and the man became a living being
And the man became a living being
And he was formed in His own image
He was formed in the image of the One whose hands sculpt the mountains and stitch the leaves
The image of the One who paints the sky and clothes the earth
The One whose beauty and creativity have no imaginable limits within the limits of our imagination
Yet when we look in the mirror
We see the dirt from which we were formed
And not the breath of the One who formed us
Because when He breathed into our nostrils the breath of life our lungs filled with His breath
And His breath became our life
And we became permanently marked with His mark of life
Because every cell within our body possesses His DNA
And every molecule of oxygen that flows through our blood is the breath of the One who breathed life into us
Yet all we see is dust
And we cover our imperfections with makeup hoping that no one will notice
But we don’t realize that every mark on our bodies is His mark of our son ship
And every imperfection is the signature of the One who made us
And when we trace our fingers over all our scars we feel the times when we wrote with a pen on our hearts
The words which we longed for so long for someone to say
But when He looks at our scars He sees the times when He chiseled away the parts of us that we tried to design ourselves
When He tattooed on our hearts the words that were on His breath the day He breathed life into us
And when we ask Him how much He loves us
He looks into our eyes,

Stretches out His hands and says “This much”
