Day 20: Purposely Created


Today I am

21,900 days old.

or

3120 weeks old

or

720 months old

or

just plain ole

60 years old.

But oh how young 60 is compared

to Moses who lived 120 years.

As I think about the day I was born

it was the day that GOD chose for me to enter into life.

HE knitted me together in my mother's womb

and no one knits by accident.

HE purposed me here.

HE purposed you here.

I am blown away by GOD

as it is HIM who I celebrate.

For THE CREATOR of the universe

breathed me & you & everyone else into existence.

And it just doesn't stop there.

HE allows us to do whatever we want to do

no matter how crazy

or rebellious

or just plain ole stupid,

as HE waits

because HE never gives up on us.

HE never gave up on me,

as I did some

crazy, rebellious and just plain ole stupid things.

HE chased me down

as HE chases us all down,

yet so gently as to not force us

to fulfill our PURPOSE on this earth.

This one PURPOSE~

"HE predestined and lovingly planned for us to be adopted to HIMSELF as [HIS own] children through JESUS CHRIST, in accordance with the kind intention and good pleasure of

HIS will"(Ephesians 1:5)

Even though HE knows us way better than we know ourselves,

HE looks beyond all our

crazy

rebellious

stupid

and HE did the most

crazy

rebellious

stupid thing in most people's eyes~

as it is way too absurd for anyone to believe

as HE purposed JESUS

to have a BIRTH~DAY on earth

so that we can all have a BIRTH~DAY IN HIM

that lasts beyond whatever age you are & whatever age I am

in days, weeks, months or years.

A BIRTH~DAY IN HIM

because

I AM ADOPTED IN HIM.

I AM HIS

forever & ever & ever & into forever.

So on this crazy old birthday that I am half way to 120 years old.

I CELEBRATE my GOD

who PURPOSELY created me

&

MY SAVIOR

who PURPOSELY ADOPTED me

even though

I was

crazy

rebellious

&

stupid

and still do some

crazy

rebellious

&

stupid things,

yet I don't want to

because my

GOD

doesn't see me as

crazy

rebellious

& stupid

because

I AM HIS

and I say

"THANK YOU LORD" (listen to the song below)
