Your alien could give me a sunburn.Did you know that at the moment of conception your DNA has determined every aspect of your identity? And that out of every single other human, you are totally unique?
Exactly what David wrote thousands of years ago,
Psalm 139:15-16 (MSG) You know me inside and out, you know every bone in my body; You know exactly how I was made, bit by bit, how I was sculpted from nothing into something.
Like an open book, you watched me grow from conception to birth; all the stages of my life were spread out before you, The days of my life all prepared before I'd even lived one day.
What about me, the monster mutation? Or you, the homosexual? It's not a new question by any means. Something every person has wondered in some form and degree or another. And while the answers vary from judgment to denial, here is the one that guides me,
John 9:1-3 (MSG) Walking down the street, Jesus saw a man blind from birth.
His disciples asked, "Rabbi, who sinned: this man or his parents, causing him to be born blind?"
Jesus said, "You're asking the wrong question. You're looking for someone to blame. There is no such cause-effect here. Look instead for what God can do.
I have found that God has turned my stumbling blocks to stepping stones in amazing ways. To where, as you have noted, I glory in my weaknesses.
On this Sunday, what would happen if you honestly acknowledged and looked for what God could do with your brokenness?
You are broken, no doubt.
I'm neither broken nor defective.
