Read Psalm 139:13-14
The word formed literally means "originated or created."
God reached into my life when I was merely a tiny embryo and began to shape me within. He originated me. He began to put me together while I was still in the soft silence of my mother's womb. It was there my "inward parts" were originated by God....
The nine-month interweaving work of God included my likes and dislikes, my personality as well as my perspective on life.... As I analyse my body and see the way I have been put together, I join the psalmist in praise and gratitude to God, my Creator....
Mother Nature didn't make me. Fate did not shape me, neither was I just a biological combination of mother and dad in a moment of sexual passion. Nor was I conceived through blind chance.
You, God (and no other), made me!

I’ve learned you don’t need to be happy all the time—or even have a great sense of humour—to receive the benefits of laughter.
The words used for healing in Scripture refer to both physical and spiritual healing. The very idea of healing presupposes an undesirable condition of ill health or brokenness in mind, body, or soul.
Together with your support, we are providing excellent biblical teaching programs and resources so the Spirit of God can take the truth of God’s Word and bring healing to sin-sick souls.
