“…formed me in the womb…” (Iz 49:5)
This is about me. This is about my spouse. This is about our children, friends, parents, neighbors. This is also about Him and our relations.
“Formed me…”. This is not an automatic creation. This is personal. This is about how important I am for Him. My existence is a proof of God’s love. The experience of Eve was: ‘I have acquired a man with the help of Yahweh,’ (Gen 4:1). And of so many women who become mothers.
“Formed me…” The source of my dignity. I can be the weakest person in the world and He will never stop loving me. I will never stop being His son, His likeness. I can’t lose it, no one can take it away from me.
And this is the perfect gift I can offer to my spouse, to our children, friends… Myself as a child of God. When I am giving myself to others, God is always included. Without Him I do not exists. With Him I can fulfill my life.
“Formed me…” and loves me in every moment in my life.
“We have come to know and to believe in the love that God has for us” (1 Jn 4:16).
