O LORD, You have searched me and You know me.
You know when I sit and when I rise;
You perceive my thoughts from afar.
You discern my going out and my lying down;
You are familiar with all my ways.
Before a word is on my tongue
You know it completely, O LORD.
For You created my inmost being;
You knit me together in my mother's womb.
I praise You because I am fearfully and wonderfully made;
Your works are wonderful, I know that full well.
My frame was not hidden from You
when I was made in the secret place.
When I was woven together
in the depths of the earth,
Your eyes saw my unformed body.
All the days ordained for me were written
in Your book before one of them came to be.
How precious to me are Your thoughts, O God!
How vast is the sum of them!
Were I to count them, they would out
number the grains of sand.
When I awake, I am still with You.

That is one of my most favourite passages in the Bible and that is Psalm 139. God made each of us so beautiful and He knows us sooo well 'cos He's our Heavenly Father. He understands why we react a certain way, and adores it when we wrinkle our nose, smile goofily, and even when we scrunch up our face to cry uncontrollably.
Every time I read that passage, I am so overwhelmed by God's amazing grace and love for me... and I am always reminded that I am special to Him, even if the world doesn't feel the same way about me and even if I sometimes get angry at God. Yes, I have days where I just shout at God all upset and teary-eyed. But, He made me, so there's no doubt that He loves me and wants the best for me in life. Sometimes I just don't understand why He allows certain things to happen, but I know that it is for a higher reason that my mere mortal mind cannot comprehend. The only thing I can do in dire and heart-wrenching circumstances is cling on to Jesus and just trust in His love until I meet with Him face to face in Heaven, where we will have the truly perfect life there. Praise God!
Jesus loves you, and you're absolutely special and one-of-a-kind to Him.
