You are who you are for a reason….
by *Russell Kelfer

You are who you are for a reason.
You’re part of an intricate plan.
You’re a precious and perfect unique design,
Called God’s special woman or man.

You look like you look for a reason.
Our God made no mistake.
He knit you together within the womb.
You’re just what He wanted to make.

The parents you had were the ones He chose,
And no matter how you may feel,
They were custom-designed with God’s plan in mind,
And they bear the Master’s seal.

No, that trauma you faced was not easy.
And God wept that it hurt you so;
But it was allowed to shape your heart
So that into His likeness you’d grow.

You are who you are for a reason,
You’ve been formed by the Master’s rod.
You are who you are, beloved,
Because there is a God!

    1. It has even greater impact when it is heard recited. I was watching a program about Victor Marx and when he recited it it moved me to tears also. That’s why I wanted to share it. I looked for a recitation but none did the justice of hearing it spoken by Victor Marx.

    1. Hi Michel, It is difficult to describe, as I still have trouble with the way to navigate wordpress. Your photo’s could not be seen when I used reader, or when I clicked to read the rest of your post from reader, but I could see them when I went directly to your site(not sure how I did that… clicked on your name perhaps?).
      I do not understand why this is, or why wordpress works this way.
      I do not give up so easily and tried many different ways. 🙂
      I did very much enjoy to see the pictures.
