When you’re little, birthdays are fantastic. Well ,mine were! We celebrated, invited friends over, played games, had cake, opened presents and sometimes had sleepovers. But as we grow up, we tend to hate our birthdays because we attach a number to it.
WHAT IF……..we didn’t add a number to our special day? WHAT IF…………we just enjoy being here, another day, another year? WHAT IF…….we remember why we are here living on earth and how important it is to be here?
God created us on Purpose. YOU ARE HERE ON PURPOSE!!!! You are NOT a mistake. You are NOT unwanted. You are NOT worthless. You were LOVED before you were born and you are LOVED now. Your life has meaning!
Psalm 139:13-14 (favorite chapter)
For you created my inmost being;
you knit me together in my mother’s womb.
I praise you because I am fearfully and wonderfully made;
your works are wonderful,
I know that full well.
My frame was not hidden from you
when I was made in the secret place,
when I was woven together in the depths of the earth.
Your eyes saw my unformed body;
all the days ordained for me were written in your book
before one of them came to be.
How precious to me are your thoughts,[a] God!
How vast is the sum of them!
Were I to count them,
they would outnumber the grains of sand—
when I awake, I am still with you.
Think about how excited God is every year on your Birthday! He created such a wonderful being. God is perfect and He created you—-even born into sin—-you are Wonderfully and Beautifully Made! God doesn’t make junk! You may not be perfect, but you are the best version of who He created you to be! Enjoy that! Knowing that he loves me and that I’m His kid means the world to me. I love Him so much!
God celebrates our Birthday with us every year! And cake is my favorite!
