Fingerprints are the tiny ridges and patterns that are formed on the tip of each human’s finger from pressure on developing fingers in the womb. No two people have been found to have the same fingerprints~they are totally unique. There's a one in 64 billion chance that your fingerprint will match up exactly with someone else's.
Based on these statistics, we can declare as fact that no two fingerprints are the same. This statement confirms that no two human beings are the same, but each has been created differently and uniquely by a Master Craftsman who cares about the smallest of details! Even identical twins, who may look exactly the same, are different in their abilities, thoughts, ideas, and dreams.
If this is the case, there is no other YOU! There is no one else like you. There is no one else who has lived your story and, therefore, no one else who can worship her Creator like you. Because of your unique circumstances and life experiences, you are able to worship God in a way that no one else can!
You Are His
She gets me every time.
In the most chaotic and quietest of moments~it sometimes happens right after she’s woken up, and the residue of sleep lingers on her cheeks, her mouth, her heavy eyelids. It gets me when she is saying a phrase of intelligent words, Icelandic and English babble all rolled into one, staring at me with her inquisitive and demanding bronze-brown eyes. I even fall victim when I’m trying to discipline her, and she acts in the quirkiest of ways, coming up with futile excuses or coming at me with butterfly kisses…all I can think is, Wow! She belongs to me.
My view of her is unadulterated and untainted. Her beauty is without limit even when coated with syrup from her morning pancakes or missing a tooth from a recent fall. I rejoice in every part of her two-year-old self because she was knit together so perfectly; she was formed so painstakingly; she was birthed excruciatingly, and, like us all, she was bought so sacrificially. I am in awe that the creative hand of God made her, as He made me, as He made you…and, not only is she beautiful because she is mine, she is altogether lovely for she is His.
How much more, then, does our heavenly Father delight in us? Zephaniah 3:17 boldly declares this, saying: “The Lord your God is in your midst, a mighty One Who will save; He will rejoice over you with gladness; He will quiet you by His love; He will exult over you with loud singing.” He doesn’t have earthly limitations for His love, and, because of this, our beauty, our uniqueness, our fingerprint are without a match, without comparison.
He rejoices over you, for you are His.
