Psalm 139 is one of the most beautiful psalms in the psalter. It has been spoken about, written about and shared in lots of different ways. The following reflection is just one sharing on this unique psalm.
You are special. In the entire world there is nobody just like you. Since the beginning of time there has never been another person like you. Nobody has your smile, your hands, your eyes, your hair. No one owns your handwriting or your voice; nobody can paint your brushstrokes on the canvas of life. You are the only one in the whole universe who sees things as you do. Throughout all eternity no one will ever think or do exactly as you do. What makes you laugh or cry is unique to you.
You are the only one who has your particular set of abilities. There is always someone who is better at one thing or another; everyone is superior in at least one way. But no one else can match the combination of your talents, your feelings, and your special gifts. A combination which when used in harmony is a uniquely beautiful symphony. You are rare. Like all things rare your value is beyond price.
Therefore, because of your great value you don't need to imitate anyone else. You are special and it is no accident that you are. You should realise that God made you special at this time in history, and in your particular circumstances, for a special purpose. There is something to be done in God's world now that only you can do. God dreams in you.
