What that particular sperm cell and egg says about you
I'm quite aware that this issue has generated heated arguments in many countries and the debate is still on as to whether it should be legalized or not, but I am not about to dwell on that.
This post is actually about YOU, whose development in the womb was not terminated or killed off before or after birth and as such has a chance to life.
You see, some times ago while I was thinking about the concept of human development right from the fertilization of the ovum, the uniqueness of each female eggs and male sperm cells that came together to form a being, intrigued my interest.
While working as a biology teacher, teaching genetics was something I found interesting, and taking developmental psychology at my masters level thus made me more interested in what happen at conception and afterwards.
I have come to conclude that every female eggs and male sperm cells are unique on their own, and as such their coming together to form a living being was by a divine selection.
My mother might have wasted many eggs during menstruation, my father might have lost millions of sperm cells during intercourse, but that particular sperm cell that fertilized that particular egg and made me was not by chance but rather a divine combination.
And as such, every biological siblings, even though they shared similar DNA are unique in their core being.
Isn't that the reason God told Jeremiah "Before I formed you in the womb I knew you, before you were born I set you apart; I appointed you as a prophet to the nations". The word 'formed' used by God also signifies the uniqueness of the sperm cell and egg that came together to form Jeremiah.
In case you are wondering the main idea behind this post, it is simply the reality that you are on this planet for a reason. When someone tells you that you are unique and created for a purpose, it is not to motivate you, it is simply the truth.
That particular sperm cell fertilized that particular egg and gave you this precious gift of life for a reason, and I pray you discover your specific purpose and live your life to the fullest...amen!
