You Are God's Idea

I'm pretty sure the author of this is Max Lucado.  When I read this, I thought, "There's a blog post in there somewhere.

Jeremiah 1:5  "Before I made you in your mother's womb, I chose you."
God planned and packed you on purpose for his purpose.
Heaven's custom design.
At a moment before moments existed, the sovereign Star Maker resolved, "I will make __________." Your name goes in the blank. Then he continued with, "And I will make him/her __________, __________ and __________ and __________ and __________." Fill those blanks with your characteristics. Insightful. Clever. Detail oriented. Restless. And since you are God's idea, you are a good idea. What God said about Jeremiah, he said about you: "Before I made you in your mother's womb, I chose you. Before you were born, I set you apart for a special work."
When the question of "What gifts/talents did God give me?"
are brought up, I almost want to include
I'm a good "copy cat"
I'd really rather describe someone else than myself.
In fact, I think it is easier to describe another person
than to describe one's self.
What do you think?
