A Purposeful Life
Greetings to all in the name of our Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ.
I never thought I would write anything of my own, however, I got an insight to write and would like to express some thoughts that God enabled me to learn through the bible and life experiences before you.
I would like to start with ourselves here. As any other person we all are born into this world through our parents. We have absolutely no control on how we were born, which place we are born, the decision on who our parents and siblings are, the time period of what we born with, to bear a thousand years back or to born a thousand years from now or anything. Or in other words, we have no choice on our existence. But why are we born into this world? And do you think our creator God brought us into existence without any purpose?
You are unique
Looking at ourselves, the way how each one of us bears is unique. We live in a very technologically advanced world and with the help of modern technology available scientists always tried to find the secrets of life. It is a very fact that each one of us are born into this world not as what we are as we see now, but as babies. Again is that the beginning? The life actually starts, at least nine months prior to our date of birth. And the way how every person is conceived in the mother’s womb is very special. For example a female egg cell is conceived by a male sperm and a new cell is formed and that’s the very first step of each our life. But at the time of conceiving, it’s not just one male sperm entering the mother’s womb, but there are millions of sperm cells entering the womb, but that very one made it you, perhaps if some other sperm cell would mate the female egg cell it could have been somebody else but not the present you. See how amazingly and uniquely God has created you.
When God creates something he pays attention to even the minutest things in detail. Imagine the whole character or a male parent is summarized into the sperm cell which is invisible to the naked eye and vice versa in the female parent. When both are combined with each other, each one of our character is produced. It includes everything from your skin color, hair colour, eye colour, whether to be a male or female, the character of what you should become everything that you are now in every single detail in your DNA. So small yet so incredibly God has inscribed us in such minute forms.
If I go to explain the DNA forms I don’t think I will be able to present what I actually wanted to express. Each character of what we are is inscribed into the DNA of our body which lies inside each cell of our body! The cell is so small that we can only observe it with the help of a microscope and imagine the DNA is encrypted in the nucleus of every cell with every single detail of what we are. In other words, all what that we are is what our DNA is and this DNA is so huge and bombarded with information, but still made to fit inside the nucleus of each tiny cell! How wonderful it is! So huge yet so small! And it is present in all over the body, regardless of whether it’s the skin or hair or eyelash or buccal smear or excretion or anything.
God made each one of us so unique that our fingerprints and retinal scans are used as biometrics to identify person to person because no two people can exist with the same fingerprint and the retinal scan of what you have doesn’t match to anyone in this world! See, how uniquely God has created you.
Not just the fingerprints, but, the whole body as it all, every human has the same organs in the body, but everything is so unique to each person in the world. It’s a common issue in organ transplantation that the receptors body rejects the donor’s organ because the unique system of the receptor does not accept the donor. In short, it is made clear that each one of us is unique.
The way how God created each one of us is absolutely stunning. Even though the world has progressed so much, none of the supercomputers can match a human brain! A human brain is a billion times better than the best supercomputer ever built in the world. I remember reading that normal humans doesn’t even use more than 2-3% of the brain in their entire lifetime! It’s even said the great genius Albert Einstein even used less than 5% of his brain in his lifetime and if that’s the case, imagine how much percentage of our brains have we ever used in our lifetime! See how wonderfully God had created our brains. Again, if we go into details, it’s so amazing the way how God created the neurons and the reflexes in the brain and is the same way with each and every organs and organ system in the body! God created each and every individual so very unique and perfect.
All the reason why I was saying all this is to say as God created each of us very unique, there is a purpose behind every individual why God created each one of us in this world at this point of time, in the place where you are, with the family what you are in. With the present situation.
In conclusion you are not an accident, but God has a plan for you and that’s the reason why you are here today in this world, in this period of time, in the kind of family you are in with situations of what you are in a very unique way. All humans look alike the organs and organ systems and the functions all the same, but still so different in the way from one person to another!
This is why the psalmist said, “For you created my inmost being; you knit me together in my mother’s womb. I praise you because I am fearfully and wonderfully made; your works are wonderful, I know that full well. My frame was not hidden from you when I was made in the secret place, when I was woven together in the depths of the earth. Your eyes saw my unformed body; all the days ordained for me were written in your book before one of them came to be. How precious to me are your thoughts, God! How vast is the sum of them! Were I to count them, they would outnumber the grains of sand— when I awake, I am still with you.”
Psalm 139:13-18 NIV
