Last week I had the honor of celebrating a special birthday. A close friend of mine became a “first time” dad…and I had the opportunity to visit his daughter soon after her arrival home.
Hollianne and I offered to deliver dinner. Selfishly, the offer to provide food was just a means to an end…as we wanted to see their new baby!
She is perfect. Big, beautiful eyes, smooth skin and delicate features. Just perfect.
She’s a blessing, but she is blessed too. She’s got an incredible mother and father that will provide for her physically, emotionally and spiritually.
For you formed my inward parts; you knitted me together in my mother’s womb. Psalm 139:13
We have that same blessing. We have a Father who designed us, loves us and wants what’s best for us.
For I know the plans I have for you, declares the Lord, plans for welfare and not for evil, to give you a future and a hope. Jeremiah 29:11
Tomorrow is my birthday. I’m officially closer to 50 than I am 40. And when I look in the mirror, I don’t see smooth skin and any delicate features…but plenty of lines and battle scars.
But I have that same promise of a heavenly Father who cares for me. And you do too.
Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, he is a new creation. The old has passed away; behold, the new has come. 2 Corinthians 5:17
We all have the opportunity for renewal each and every day. Thank God.
Let me know how I can pray for you this week.
