The image immediately brought back memories of my childhood because I always bought the corn puffs that were shaped like paws. I picked up the bag immediately just because of the fact.
When I got to the car I thought it was kinda silly to buy some corn puffs just because of their shape, but as I reflected I thought "Somebody took the time out to make that shape, and to carry it through to be shared in stores." There had to be some special technology to get those cheetah paws and differentiate them from regular ol' corn puffs.
At that very moment it crossed my mind that GOD took his time out to make each and everyone of us with a "special shape". I suddenly appreciated the paws a little bit more and had gratitude for the amazing GOD that created the universe.
The psalmist in Psalm 139:14 declares:
"I praise you because I am fearfully and wonderfully made; your works are wonderful, I know that full well."This is the feeling I had when I left the store with my cheetah shaped corn puffs. A feeling of thankfulness and gratitude that each of us are different, and all of us matter. Let this be your reminder that you are uniquely and Wonderfully made by the most dynamic GOD.
