You are Marvelous In God’s Eyes



Recently, my mom sent me a text inviting me to read Psalm 139, and she reminded me that I am marvelous in God’s eyes. It was just what I needed to hear, and I thought maybe you might need this reminder, too.

Verses 13-14 says:

“You formed my inmost being; you knit me in my mother’s womb. I praise you, so wonderfully you made me; wonderful are your works!”

If you are struggling or depressed or feel like you can’t go on, God knows what you are going through. He is there. He made you in the womb, and He sees you as the marvelous being that you are, even with all your mistakes, foibles, or doubts! Don’t be afraid to go to Him in your time of need, and know that even if you can’t “feel” God’s presence, He will carry you through.

I want to encourage you to take a few minutes to read Psalm 139. It is a beautiful Psalm, and I hope, as you read it, it will fill you with peace.

God bless you.

Weekly Goals

Last week I outlines my monthly goals for February. Now comes the job of breaking down those goals into doable tasks. Here are some of the goals I hope to accomplish this week:

Spiritual Goals

1. Continue with daily prayers: Mass, rosary, quiet prayer and bible reading/study.

2. Continue memorizing John 14:27.

Spousal goals

3. Write love note for Michael and hide it in his work bag.

4. As Michael if there is anything in particular that I can do for him.

Mothering goals

5. Read The Mysterious Benedict Society to Andrew + have Andrew read one short story to me.

6. Work with Andrew on character building: Obedience. (Doing this with stories, role-play and lots of practice! More on this to follow in another post.)

Personal Development

7. Research a SIMPLE pattern for a Kindle Touch cover and buy the needed yarn. (If you know of any easy pattern, please let me know!)

8. Exercise on treadmill or Elliptical for 15 minutes. (Because of my CP, it has taken me a long time to get up to 15 minutes. I literally started out by exercising 3 minutes, so I’m a little proud of myself. 🙂 )

9. Read Attack on Planet Falrus (for book review) and Good News for Bad Days: Living a Soulful Life; besides the readings for my classes.

Blogging goals

10. Compose and pre-post first installment of my series on marriage.

11. Write outline for e-book.

A little ambitious I think, but I’ll do my best. Come be inspired by some other weekly goals over at Money Saving Mom. While you’re at it, why not link up your own? 🙂
