I tell you what, my sons are just crazy!! So I over hear them talking and the older one tells the young one in Swahili, ‘unajua sisi tulijengwa na mchanga’ which basically means ‘you know we were made from dust?’ And the young one is like no way! How can we be made of dust? How did God put us together using dust? did He mix dust with water? And because he didn’t believe his brother, he comes over to me and asks the same question and I tell him it’s true. You should have seen his eyes and mouth, wide opened in disbelief and he was like No way! After awhile, he comes and says, “mum, can I too make a person?” And am like how will you do that? And he goes by mud, just the way God did it! At this point am laughing my lungs off…. my son wanting to make a human with mud just the way God did it? I had to explain to him that he can’t make man, and that its only God who has the power to breath the breadth of life, he goes on to say, “then God must be the most powerful person on earth?” And am like your right boo…. He’s very powerful.
Our lives are special to God, and that is why He is the only one who decides when we will leave this earth or not. Scientists have tried cloning and I must say, they are getting better and better by the day, but this one thing is true, they can never make a heart, they can never make a human that has feelings just the way we do, they can never make lungs and kidneys and skin! No they can’t, and they won’t! All they can do, is robots, machines and many more machines. What God did with us, is just special and amazing. Therefore, we don’t need to look down upon ourselves, we don’t need to feel like we don’t matter, we matter a lot in the eyes of God our Father, and He created each and every one of us for a purpose. We all need each other, sometimes I sit and wish we could go back to the garden of Eden, where everything was just good and peaceful, but we can’t. However, we can each try and make our world a better place than we found it, how? Love for God, Love for man and love for our environment (surroundings). With love, we can accomplish much, without love, our world falls apart, with people rising against each other, nations against nations, but where there is Love, there is peace, there is joy!
Today remember that you were made special by God, He had you in His mind, while He was still forming the world, He knew you, when you were in your mothers womb, He made you and me special. No matter what comes our way, may we never forget how special we are in the eyes of God.
