"I praise you, for I am fearfully and wonderfully made. Wonderful are your works; my soul knows it very well." —Psalm 139:14

  • What physical features do you like or dislike about yourself?
  • What does it mean to be "fearfully and wonderfully made" by God?
  • What are some ways we can encourage each other about our unique physical or personality traits?

Most people have some physical feature, personality trait or personal limitation they wish they could change, but others likely notice those features far less. For example, while we might dislike the shape of our nose or our shy personality, our spouse probably sees nothing wrong with either. Before we were born, God knew our height, facial features and the other characteristics that make us unique individuals. We can praise God for fearfully and wonderfully making us in His image.
