Womb Fashioned

“Did not He who made me in the womb make them?
Did not the same One fashion us in the womb?”  Job 31:15

We are all created beings, coming into this world the same way.

Lord, let me not think in terms of “we” and “they”, but “us”.  And here’s a simple poem . . .

From Scratch

You make us humbly
out of the same
dirt and clay
we’ll  later be
pulled from
everyone leaving
muddy tracks.

  1. ‘…Lord, let me not think in terms of “we” and “they”, but “us”…’

    If only we Christians could eventually arrive at the point where we do see our brethren of all flavors as a part of us and not a part of them, that would be amazing. Sadly, I don’t see it happening without intense persecution. Too many muddy tracks for now.

  2. beautiful words my friend

  3. I needed reminded of this AGAIN recently. . .so am thankful that He is always faithful to keep bringing it to me, when my mind slips into thinking divided-ly. God bless you, Mr. Larry, and praying with you for the muddy days yet ahead.

  4. God bless beautiful you, Terry! And may no one track up your place after you have cleaned!!!

  5. yes, i do like nothing more than God in our home

  6. Ooooh, I SO love this one, Sis Deb–love our humble beginnings, and yet we’re on our way to our royal Kingdom home! I’m guessing the mud will just keep falling off, on the way, eh? God bless you BIG on this Worshipful Wednesday! love, your forever sis Caddo

  7. What a wonderful reminder that the Lord created us and knew us even from our mother’s womb. What a blessing it is to know that our Lord has such a great love and concern for us that He personally was a part of our life, even form the womb. Lord bless you.

  8. This reminds me of Psalm 139 it talks about how God knows us so well better than we know ourselves

  9. This part of your poem combined with the photo really grabbed my attention:

    “we’ll later be
    pulled from
    everyone leaving
    muddy tracks.”

    I am curious. Were you thinking about Christians leaving the earth one at a time when we die or maybe about the rapture? I would really like it if you could share a little.

    I really like this post.

    Love,
    Theresa

  10. I like the idea of the mud falling off on the way, Sis Caddo Delight! 🙂 A really beautiful mind picture that makes. God bless you! So thankful that He formed you just the way He did! Love and prayers and rejoicing too!

  11. That does really humble us to think about God knowing us in the womb, that His love was already present and in place for us. God bless you as He continues to bless others through you!

  12. It reminded me of Psalm 139 too, dear Desiray! 🙂 God bless you as you trust the One who knows you so well! love and prayers for your complete healing and health! And for tomorrow to be all that God planned it to be!

  13. Love you, wonderful woman of the Word . ..and am really liking what others are getting from this post! I start out simple, but more depth gets added, so your ideas were really awesome to me! 🙂
    I was thinking about this first off, in the context that Job spoke it . ..about how he wasn’t any better than those servants in his home. The muddy tracks part of the poem just kind of came out, after thinking of us being made from dust, that we all have sinned and leave “muddy tracks” as He saves us and cleans us up. That doesn’t sound as cool as what you were thinking though! haha!
    God bless you and yours, as you leave footprints for Jesus on this world.

  14. Great poem! Love the muddy tracks!
    God Bless You!

  15. That is a great explanation! I am so glad to be able to see the things the Lord is showing you. It helps me a lot.

    Love,
    Theresa

  16. THIS is a lesson for us in all that we do! ‘…Lord, let me not think in terms of “we” and “they”, but “us”…’

  17. God bless you, Lady Dei, as you make tracks right for Him! 🙂

  18. It’s one He has to keep bringing me, Tammy. Just when I think I’ve got it, something happens and I find myself thinking back like we and they again. God bless you and all the lessons He brings you!

  19. nice post deb. 🙂

  20. Deb, it always surprises me the way God shows you something different. You and He must have a very close connection and you must be very open to His leading. Thank you for sharing the thoughts He gives you.

    I couldn’t help thinking that my “muddy tracks” would be a highway of bottomless mud . . . but for the fact that my beloved Saviour makes it possible that each footprint is wiped out, leaving no trace at all.

    What an amazing Redeemer!

  21. God bless you and yours, John! So glad He made you!

  22. God bless you, Mentor Angela. You are so kind and generous to me. Sometimes I think I am really reaching for these. haha!
    I love thinking about Jesus wiping out those dirty footprints so there is not even a trace of who we used to be! love and prayers!

  23. Your poem reminded me of a message I listened to recently! Thank you so much for breaking it down so eloquently. It is definitely not “we” and “they,” but “US!” Amen! Love and prayers!

    Paulette

  24. It helps me to identify with others, Paulette . .to think of “us” when I pray so I don’t get to mistakenly thinking I am any better in any way than anyone else. Love you and so good to see you able to stop by!! God bless you too!

  25. Amen, Debbie! So, so true! I’m still camped out, so you may hear from me yet again. 🙂 Love you too!
