Stanek Sunday quote: “Body and soul, I am marvelously made! I worship in adoration – what a creation!”
It’s interesting to read familiar passages of Scripture in various versions – to gain fresh insight or to keep them from growing stale. Here’s The Message translation’s take on a passage familiar to pro-lifers, Psalm 139:13-16…
Oh yes, you shaped me first inside, then out; you formed me in my mother’s womb. I thank you, High God – you’re breathtaking! Body and soul, I am marvelously made! I worship in adoration – what a creation!
You know me inside and out, you know every bone in my body; You know exactly how I was made, bit by bit, how I was sculpted from nothing into something.
Like an open book, you watched me grow from conception to birth; all the stages of my life were spread out before you, The days of my life all prepared before I’d even lived one day.
