Week 2: I’m Made On Purpose

Coach's Corner


“Thank you for making me so wonderfully complex!
Your workmanship is marvelous—how well I know it.” – Psalm 139:14

1. What’s the one thing you like the most about yourself?
2. What’s the one thing about yourself that you’d most like to change?


You are extraordinary!  Don’t believe me?  Let me just tell you a few things about yourself:

  • Your heart will beat around 100,000 times in a day!
  • Your heart will pump an equivalent of 2,000 gallons of blood each day!
  • If you laid out all your blood vessels end to end, they would literally circle the globe!  (But let’s not try it.)
  • Guess how many taste buds the average human has? 3,000!
  • Here’s another question, how many new cells do you think your body produces EVERY second? 25 million!
  • Your body has over 600 muscles!

I told you that you are extraordinary! It’s just amazing how God has created each and every one of us. Although these are things that we all share in common, God also made you uniquely YOU!  There is nobody else quite like you and that’s an AMAZING thing!

Raise your hand if you feel good about yourself all of the time.

Raise your hand if you feel good about yourself just some of the time.

Most of us don’t feel good about ourselves all of the time or even most of the time. That’s because we are all humans and none of us are perfect.

But here’s some great news! In God’s eyes, you were made perfect. That’s a big deal because God is the all-powerful Creator of the universe. We learn this in Genesis 1:1:

“In the beginning God created the heavens and the earth.”

And God didn’t just create the heavens and the earth. He also created every single person that’s ever been born!

In Genesis 1:27, we also learn that “God created human beings in his own image… male and female he created them.”

That means you too! You were made in the image of God. God had something very special in mind when He created you, and it wasn’t a mistake—even in those times when you don’t feel so special.

Anybody ever use a hammer before? What did you use it for? The last time I used a hammer was to _____________.  Now, think about it. Did a hammer just create itself to be used? Did the universe just decide a hammer needed to happen? Nope. Someone created the hammer on purpose to be used FOR a purpose.

That’s just like you. Although you are WAY more complex than an hammer, God created you on purpose.  here is a reason you are here. Even when you don’t feel that way. You are HIS creation.

Let’s read our Warm-Up verse again.

“Thank you for making me so wonderfully complex!

Your workmanship is marvelous—how well I know it.” ­– Psalm 139:14

How does it feel knowing the Creator of the universe also created you?

How does knowing this impact the way you live each day?

Next time you’re not feeling great about yourself or your performance, know that God created you and loves you just the way you are!


As we wrap up, can anyone tell me how many muscles you have in your body? Over 600!

How about the number of gallons of blood your heart pumps each day? 2,000 gallons!

Lastly, and most importantly, I want you to understand that God, our creator, made you on purpose for you to do great things in this world. We’ll spend the next few practices talking about that!

I’m so excited to walk this path together this season! Let me pray for us as we finish up our Huddle Time.

“Dear God, thank You for creating me on purpose and in Your image. Help me remember how much You love me every day. Amen.”
