I Am Wonderfully Made

I am fearfully and wonderfully made. -Psalm 139:14

This is the memory verse for our Toddlers this month and anyone using My First Look
will recognize it. It's funny how God intertwines the day-to-day with scripture and someone that I consider a hero in faith forwarded me an interesting e-mail. It brought that verses to mind and talked about a sermon that Louie Giglio, who I had the pleasure of seeing at Orange, did on DVD. He speaks about how this star-breathing, universe creating God also knitted together the human body.

Louie talked about how we can trust that God who created all of this, also has the power to hold it all together when things seem to be falling our loving Creator is also our sustainer.

Then the e-mail talks about how Louie turned this into a discussion about the creation of the body and in specifics, laminin. You can check out the video on You Tube.

Ok...if you're like me, I had no clue what this was, but my hero of faith is also a doctor, so she saw the link right away. As described in Wikipedia,
laminins are a family of protein that are an integral part of the structural scaffolding of basement membranes in almost every animal tissue. In layman's terms, laminins are what hold us together. Without them, we would literally fall apart.

So...are you interested in what laminin looks like?

Here you go:

It's not a Christian 'portrayal' of it. Look it up...this is how any scientific or medical piece of literature will show it.
