You Are Not An Accident from Elissa Ewald on Vimeo.

A Poem by the Children of Merciful Redeemer Children’s Home, Kitengala, Kenya

You are who you are for a reason

You are part of an intricate plan

You are precious and perfect, unique design

Called God’s special woman, man or a child

You look like you look for a reason

Our God made no mistake

He knit you together within the womb

You are just what he wanted to make

The parents you have, they are the one’s 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 in his likeness you’d grow

You are who you are for a reason

You have been formed by the Master’s work

You are who you are beloved because that is our God

We are not an accident

It is God’s plan

We are here for a purpose

God has a plan to prosper us and not to harm

Plans to give us hope and a future
