Lesson 

Fearfully and Wonderfully Made

Can anyone tell me what I taught on over the last couple weeks? God has made each and everyone one of us special. He designed perfectly your fingers, toes, eyes, elbows, nose, hip bone, and the shape you’re in. Open your Bibles to Psalm 139:14 “I will praise thee; for I am fearfully and wonderfully made: marvellous are thy works; and that my soul knoweth right well.”
Today I brought something very special and beautiful. I brought this rose. Just like God made us special, He has put as much detail into creating a single rose. Each rose is different, not one the same. Some are pink, purple, red, and many other colors. He has created each petal with special care and shaped it perfectly. Now, God did not make this rose. I made this flower which is made out of paper. I had to pick the color of my rose. I took the time to cut out each petal and carefully shape it. I had to make the leaves and put them all in the right places to create my work of art. Even if I made more than one rose, each one would come out different. God has done the same with me and you. He has shaped us perfectly into the young ladies he wants us to be. He knew what color eyes you would have, what color hair you would have, what color skin you would have even before you were born. Can I have a few girls raise their hands and tell me one thing you like about how God made you different from others? Remember girls, God made you special. Thank Him for creating you the way you are. Love the way God made you, you are his masterpiece. God does not want you to hate the way he created you. He loves every feature you have, your eyes, ears, nose…EVERYTHING. Let’s praise Him because we are fearfully and wonderfully made. Roses are red, Violets are blue, God made me and you.

Fearfully and Wonderfully Made

Life Application
Once there were two best friends. Marina and Kristina did everything together since they were two years old. They went on play dates, had tea parties, went to the park, and their favorite was to color and do crafts together. Marina and Kristina were so excited the first day of Second grade was tomorrow! They loved going to school together. This year Kristina was going to sleepover at Marina’s house to get ready for the first day of school. They had the best outfits picked out. Both had matching pretty pink flowing dresses with purple flowers. Of course, their favorite colors were purple and pink. Being eager for the first day of school they went to bed super early. The next day they wore their matching pink and purple dresses with confidence until they entered their class room. They looked from girl to girl and noticed all the girls were dressed very different. Their friend, Ashley from first grade walked up to them and started laughing at them. She said in between her giggles, did your mommies make your cute dresses? There so long. Some of Ashley’s friends started coughing and saying ugly under their breaths. Marina thought to herself…am I really ugly? After school that day Marina went straight to her room and was very upset. She looked in her mirror and thought…I am ugly. She said to herself in the mirror, “Look at my nose…it’s too pointy, my ears stick out too much, and my eyes are just the wrong color. I will never look anything like Ashley and her popular clothes.” Marina layed on her bed and cried herself to sleep with the thought of being ugly. While she was crying, her mom had overheard Marina point out the things that she did not like about herself. Marina woke up the next morning and declared to her mom, “I’m sick, I cannot go to school today.” Her mom knew the real reason Marina did not want to go to school that day. Her mom sat down on the edge of her bed and said, “Sweetheart, why don’t you want to go to school today? You love school.” Marina with tears in her eyes said, Mommy, I’m so ugly…all the girls in my class are so much prettier than I am. I hate myself. Marina’s mommy opened her Bible and read Psalm 139:140 “I will praise thee; for I am fearfully and wonderfully made: marvellous are thy works; and that my soul knoweth right well.” Marina’s mommy told her that God specially made her and no one else looked like Marina because God made her just the way He saw fit. He made her eyes, ears, and nose perfect just for Marina and no one else.
Marina has a decision to make…will she love the way God made her and be thankful or will she hate herself and be unhappy with the way God perfectly designed her?
What would you do?

Poem

There Is Only One You


Susan Y Nikitenko   June 9th, 2012
If someone said you were not special;
This assertion is not true.
Though you must work with all your heart;
There is no one - just like you.

You were planned and purposed by our maker;
Before you were ever born.
You are one of His unique creations;
In love and thought you were formed.

There is only one you..
God Made Me
