No One Like You

I gave birth to four children and none of them is like the other! Yet I love them all dearly.

Lenny Le Blanc wrote the lyrics to this song for us to sing to our awesome God, but I can imagine that God might sing them to us. After all, each of us is unique, and each of us is His favorite!

There is none like you.
No one else can touch my heart like you do.
I could search for all eternity long and find
There is none like you.

Recently, I was asked to give a short talk about my son who had Down syndrome who died from heart defects. What a gift his short life was to me and to many others! I thought maybe it would help someone who had a child with disabilities or a couple who were being pressured to abort a baby because of defects.

I was surprised when afterwards, a middle-aged man came to me privately and said: "All my life I have felt like I don't belong and that I was never supposed to be born. My birth was the result of a rape, and I was placed in an institution at birth. Your testimony about what a blessing your son was in your life, and how God values each and every person, has exposed Satan's lie. 
I AM supposed to be here, and God has a purpose just for me!"

I chose you before I formed you in the womb; 
I set you apart before you were born.
Jeremiah 1:5 Holman Christian Standard Bible

How wonderful for that man that your story touched him, and how wonderful for you that he shared it with you!

God is so amazing at giving us opportunity to help in a way we would never have imaginee. Our steps through life are with God and sometime we really don't understand any of the walk. But God is so good and He knows us so well and helps us along the way, everyday.
