For you formed my inward parts; you knitted me together in my mother’s womb. I praise you, for I am fearfully and wonderfully made. Wonderful are your works; my soul knows it very well. My frame was not hidden from you, when I was being made in secret, intricately woven in the depths of the earth. Your eyes saw my unformed substance; in your book were written, every one of them, the days that were formed for me, when as yet there was none of them. Psalm 139:13-16
For many years I mentored teenage girls. God has given me a heart for them because Lord knows how hard it is to be one in this dark world. Surely back in the “dinosaur age” when I was a young woman I felt the hard pressures and realities of socially and sexually damaging choices everywhere. In that day, as in now “mean girls” abounded but they were less successful than they are now. With the 24/7 social media there is never a chance to go mentally quiet and draw close to the heart of the One who made us or even try to understand our own hearts.
