Take a close look at this image, what do you see?

This isn’t a tapestry. It is not a painting. It is the most detailed image of a human cell to date obtained by radiography, nuclear magnetic resonance and cryoelectron microscopy.

Each and every human has trillions of cells that make up their bodies. What an amazing and beautiful creation from God. As I let that sink in for a moment, I read this quote in a recent book (1,000+ Habits of Happy, Successful Relationships) from Authors Marc and Angel Chernoff write, “The time you invest in creating both healthy relationships and healthy mindsets about your relationships can affect almost everything else you do in life. It’s how you can truly make a difference in the world.”

In a time when we may feel helpless or clueless about how to make a difference in our world, start here.

Their theory explains what we have all seen in some of our relationships when we practice being present, making connections, and sharing acceptance – not just in our relationships with others but also in our relationship with ourselves.

“As we all know, the world we live in does not provide the time, space, and conditions for making these types of important relational investments. Therefore, we must CHOOSE to make time for words and actions that bind us together, carry us through, and brighten our days.” (Rachel Macy Stafford)

“For we are God’s handiwork, created in Christ Jesus to do good works, which God prepared in advance for us to do.” (Ephesians 2:10)

Prayer for Today

Creator God, Thank you for the intricate details in your creation of human beings. Help us to be open to see your handiwork in those we encounter this day and find ways to be present, make connections and share acceptance. In Christ’s Name, Amen.
