Fearfully and Wonderfully Made

As I walked through the market place in Jerusalem today, I sighed as I considered how casually our society regards the very things which God has called wonderful.

In Psalm 139, it is written that we are fearfully and wonderfully made. Yet our society regards the baby in the womb as an object which can be disposed of if it’s “inconvenient.” We casually regard our own bodies as though sexual intimacy is something cheap and easily given, like a paper cup tossed away.

Yet, God has created intimacy to be as precious as a delicate crystal glass, something to be guarded and cherished.

I will praise You, for I am fearfully and wonderfully made; Marvelous are Your works, And that my soul knows very well. Psalm 139: 14

Here, at Bead Chaim, we deeply care about babies and women. Please, stand with us in prayer and action to bring change and to save lives.
