This is one of my favorite Psalms and every time I read it, it puts a smile on my face. It literally brings me joy to imagine the intimate connectedness I’ve had with God since before I was born.
Tonight we’re going to focus on versus 13-16. Read from the NIV it states:
“For you created my inmost being;
you knit me together in my mother’s womb.
14 I praise you because I am fearfully and wonderfully made;
your works are wonderful,
I know that full well.
15 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.
16 Your eyes saw my unformed body;
all the days ordained for me were written in your book
before one of them came to be.”
As a creative person, and knitter, I instantly connected to the process of creating something beautiful and different out of nothing. To think about something and see a vision for that finished work. To know what it will be before I even begin to create it.
Take a break then take a breath, exhale, relax and listen as we worship God in the stillness of God’s secret place.

- Lion Brand was my go-to site for yarn and patterns when I first taught myself to knit. They have a ton of free patterns for every level.
- Ravelry is a community of knit and crocheters who share patterns, ideas, and support. I’ve been a member for over 10 years and still use the site to rejuvenate my love of knitting from time to time. You can also find unique patterns to try, both free and paid.
- KnitPicks is a great place to buy needles, yarn, and other accessories for the knitter and crocheter.
- Also, check out your local yarn shops for classes, yarns, and supplies. Online communities are nice, but there’s something about touching yarn, talking to knowledgeable crafters, and other hobbyists that makes this the journey fun.
