Did you know that at birth, there are approximately 1 million eggs; and by the time of puberty, only about 300,000 eggs remain? And that of these, only 300 to 400 will be ovulated during a woman’s reproductive lifetime? I didn’t know that, but a question about the probability of there being an Aisha came across my mind today. There are endless possibilities of pairings that could’ve been, but here I am. There’s a me—only one in Creation. There’s millions of other people walking about with their own experiences and trials and triumphs, and that is amazing. Today, I recognized just how deep God’s love is for His Creation and just how important we are to Him. Today, I not only recognized but I felt just how significant each person is in God’s plan. Out of the hundreds of thousands of outcomes that could’ve been created, there’s a you and there’s a me. And God has always had planned it that way. Long before you even existed He paired generations together just to get a you. That’s amazing.
I’m sure you’ve seen this Scripture many times, but today I didn’t just claim it for myself but said it for everyone I passed.
“For I know the plans I have for you,” declares the LORD, “plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future.”
Jeremiah 29:11 NIV
