Today we took the kids across the border to France for a grocery shopping/day trip. While I packed the bags of groceries into the van (lots of American and American-ish stuff), Emma was amazed at how cool the snowflakes looked on the window. It was still cold, so they hadn't melted off yet. And each one looked so perfect!
It got me thinking about God's creativity. Every snowflake is different (and there were a bunch of them falling today). How strange that God would "waste" His creativity on something as insignificant as snowflakes. Yet He does it with a flair!
We are also unique... each of us has unique fingerprints & retinas -- even in the case of biological twins -- and DNA! Not only are you different from every other person alive (nearly 7 billion people), you are different from every other person ever to walk the face of this planet. God made you special! He created you on purpose, for a purpose!
Not only do we each have a unique purpose, but we also have a unique way in which we connect with God. Of course, there are the normal ways: praise & worship, Bible reading, prayer, solitude, etc. But since we're one-of-a-kind creations, we are to have a one-of-a-kind relationship with God. I encourage you to spend some time this week asking God to reveal your uniqueness to you... and how He has designed your one-of-a-kind relationship with Him to be.
