created. (psalm 139:13)

It is often said that people spend their lives in search of their other half. I think this is entirely true. Many do. We delight in finding similarities with others. We are frustrated when their opinions and interests differ from our own. We can devote our lives to searching for someone who truly understands who we are and what we are made of.

In fact, we were never made to be like another human. The only being we can encounter who is made out of the same stuff as we are, is the one from whom we were made–Jesus.  And finding him means finally being understood, related to and loved.

You created my inmost being; you knit me together in my mother’s womb. Psalm 139:13
