The DNA kit

Psalm 139:16 Your eyes saw my substance, being yet unformed. And in Your book they all were written, The days fashioned for me, When as yet there were none of them.

My daughter sent me a DNA kit for Christmas and I recently received the results.
The website reported that my family roots lie in Scandinavia, the British Isles, and a portion of western Europe.
This is correct.
My dad’s family are immigrants from Sweden.
My mom’s family is from all the other places.
Just last night I was searching on Ancestry and discovered that one of the Wise’s was knighted.
Wise was my grandmother’s maiden name.
Years ago I also found a duke.
Ancestral roots and discoveries are fun but God already knew who I was and where I came from before I was formed.
He already knew the number of hair on my head, or the lack thereof, before my head ever appeared in this world.
And regardless of having a distant ancestor that was knighted or a duke, I am pleased to report I know a Lord and King as my personal savior.

One thought on “The DNA kit

  1. We are totally blessed to be found in the pages of God’s eternal book of life. 1 Corinthians 15:55 O death, where is thy sting? O grave, where is thy victory? 15:56 The sting of death is sin; and the strength of sin is the law. 15:57 But thanks be to God, which giveth us the victory through our Lord Jesus Christ.
