Hopefully all is well, thought I'd share a thought today for you, hopefully God's word can encourage you. I havn't gotten this far in reading the Psalms yet, well I havn't read for a while. I guess it comes and gose at times.
Psalms 139 has been pondering me for abit and it talks about how God knows us every inch of us, from our thoughts to our speach to our actions and who we are as a person, how we are important to Him and the purpose that God has for us.
This verse is a common verse that we may of herd that I kinda want to touch on because it feels like too many people just take it for granted.
You made all the delicate, inner parts of my body and knit me together in my mother’s womb. Thank you for making me so wonderfully complex! Your workmanship is marvelous—how well I know it. You watched me as I was being formed in utter seclusion, as I was woven together in the dark of the womb. You saw me before I was born. Every day of my life was recorded in your book. Every moment was laid out before a single day had passed.
Psalms 139:13-16 NLT
As this week is coming up I guess I turn the big 30! And I think wow I'm old! Others probably disagree which is ok too! But dispite any age I've herd this from people. It's not just about birthdays, but even other holidays and occasions that come around "it's just a day" I cringe when people say that because it's more than just a day. It's a day that comes once a year to celebrate. Others days come and go and we often are busy running around 7 days a week without even thinking to take time to do something. Holidays and occasions are there for a reason, to slow down and take those moments when you can't any other day.
Reason they call it a birthday is because it's the day of your birth. It's a day that God made time for you to be born because even though He knows we are aren't gonna do everything perfect, that we're gonna probably mess up something along the way in life, He knows there is a purpose and reason for you to be here. God wants to celebrate that with you. He knit you together in your mother's womb and was was delicate with you.
God dosn't approve of something or someone that He dosn't love. So when an occasion, gathering, birthday, holiday other than Halloween possibly – I guess I kinda poke fun at that one, but when those opportunities come embrace it! Don't just think of it as "just a day" If we don't make time we'll never take time. That's what makes those moments extra special than just an ordinary day. It's not being selfish, it's taking time that God set aside for you and others to celebrate with Him.
We can still carry out the good times every day indeed and make good memories along the way for sure, just don't push aside the important ones that come once a year in your life tyourhat God made for you and Him in that moment .
