Fearfully, Wonderfully Made

The bible tells us that we are fearfully, wonderfully made in Psalm 139. God is our incredible Creator! Do we really believe this? I found this on a blog via Facebook and was blown away by what I found.
How big is our God? He spoke the universe into being. He arranged the stars in the heavens. He knitted our bodies together with complexity and wonder. Such order does not come about by chance. A God Who has created all things also has the power to hold things together even when they seem to be falling apart. Our loving Creator also sustains us.

This is what I find so amazing. There are proteins in the human body called laminins. They are, according to Wikipedia, "an integral part of the structural scaffolding of basement membranes in almost every animal tissue." Laminins LITERALLY hold us together. They are molecules that hold the cells of the body together. Without them, we would absolutely fall apart. But what is so amazing is what they look like!

The "glue" that holds each of us together is in the shape of a cross. Long before laminins were ever discovered, St. Paul penned these words, 
He is the image of the invisible God, the first-born of all creation; for in him all things were created, in heaven and on earth, visible and invisible, whether thrones or dominions or principalities or authorities--all things were created through him and for him. He is before all things, and in him all things hold together. ~ Colossians 1:15-17
Very LITERALLY, we are held together - one cell to another - by the cross. How much more convincing could the mark of our Creator be? God knew the structure of the "glue" that would hold us together long before He breathed life into Adam and longer still before His Only Son would suffer and die on a cross.
