Ephesians 2:10 New Living Translation (NLT)
For we are God’s masterpiece. He has created us anew in Christ Jesus, so we can do the good things he planned for us long ago.
Genesis 1:27 New Living Translation (NLT)
So God created human beings in his own image.
In the image of God he created them;
male and female he created them.
Jeremiah 1:5 New Living Translation (NLT)
“I knew you before I formed you in your mother’s womb.
Before you were born I set you apart
and appointed you as my prophet to the nations.”
Your life is unique
Today is the birthday of my granddaughter (Brookley). As she grows older, I see the love for God growing inside of her. She loves her church and being part of leading. She helps on the worship team for kids, helps in the nursery and loves seeing her friends there. At school, she loves helping her others in her classroom. Her example not only shows to her friends, but to leaders at church and school. Kids can make such a difference. As I think about her birth, I think about the importance one life can make to someone. I love being her Grammie.
As I think about God and how he created each of us, I also see how he gave each of us free will. God said that he knew you in your mother's womb. The plan for your life began before you were born. Think about that for a minute. God has a big plan for you and it comes alive in scripture. Each of us are different and it's important to be you. We can go through similar things in life and each of our experiences are different. That's why we are unique in the eyes of God and his masterpiece. I get excited when I think about how far God has brought my life. Through my own mistakes in life, I see my life is important to many. I see that my birth was meant and my choices valuable. I see that your life was meant and your choices valuable.
Each year we can look forward to our birthdays. They go up in number and we add another candle on a cake. They add blessings and we can surround our life with those who love us. Birthday are special and so are you. As I wish my granddaughter (Brookley) a happy birthday, I also wish you a happy new day and thank God for your birth. We might not always understand the plan of God, but holding tight to him is important. Through it all, trust in the Lord with all your heart. One day can hold mixed emotions for us and nobody might know that. I always say to pray for the strongest person you know, because you never know the depth of moment or their story. Once again, purpose this a good day.
Psalm 118:24 New Life Version (NLV)This is the day that the Lord has made. Let us be full of joy and be glad in it.
My prayers continue for you, your family and friends.
