Insight from the Next Generation – Sierra Welch, our Young Women for America Ambassador at North Central University in Minneapolis, Minnesota, shares her thoughts on the intentionality of our creation.
From the moment I was created in my mother’s womb, I was female. There is such power, beauty, and intentionality in this reality. I praise God that He ordained such an important and foundational part of who I am. We are the created beings called to love and worship a holy and marvelous God worthy of all praise. Through His good pleasure and love, He created beings to inhabit and rule over the earth.
We are the form molded by the potter’s hands, and as we read in Isaiah 45:9, “Does the clay say to him who forms it, ‘What are you making?’ or ‘Your work has no handles?'”
We do not have the wisdom or infinite knowledge and understanding of God to distrust what He has ordained. Rather, we can trust the God who created the heavens and the earth, the cosmos and the atom, the mountains and the valleys, the oceans and the babbling brooks, none of which compare to the crescendo of creation, man and woman.
We can trust that God created our manhood and womanhood without mistake, without question, and without fear of fault or error. We can also trust that every human life has value, purpose, destiny, and a call by God to salvation through His Son, Jesus Christ.
Every human life has dignity inside and outside of the womb. Both mom, dad, unborn child, and born child have value, are priceless, and have been bought with an unmatched price through the blood of Jesus Christ.
