There are those whose birthday arrives and see it as an ordinary day. Oh, but it is not by any means just another day. You see, we were created at the exact moment God thought of us. We were not an ephemeral thought but a very defined one with unique specifications. We were created in the image and likeness of God. (Genesis 1:26) We are not anything. We have God’s DNA, perfect, almighty, majestic, wonderful, kind, merciful, loving and compassionate among many other excellent things. We are created beings with details and a perfect love. Do not let anyone tell you the opposite of your existence. Do not minimize your life. Celebrate every moment, especially the day of your birthday.
I recently celebrated my birthday with my daughter, family and friends. I laughed, danced and enjoyed every minute of it. I also celebrated spending time with God, meditating on everything that has happened in my life up to this point. It is a time where my tears reflect sadness, pain, regrets on taking wrong turns or poorly made decisions and at the same time joy, blessings of family, beautiful people in my life, achievements and gratefulness for God's hand upon my life. The years I have lived seem like a long life for many, but for me time is still evolving. I still have a lot that I want to achieve. I am grateful to God for the opportunity to continue walking even for the moments that I wobble and falter for health reasons, painting and weaving the threads that are part of the tapestry of my life.
Celebrate your life and value every minute. God is and will always be greater than any circumstance you may go through. Remember that you were created with love in the divine mind of God. Do not let anyone or the situation by which you came into the world make you believe otherwise. You carry God ‘s DNA. His Holy Spirit flows through your being. Celebrate and enjoy your life in the love of God. You were created with and for a purpose.
I will love to know how you celebrate your birthday? Share it with me.
