I love it because it’s a time when we gather together loved ones to celebrate. How great it is to have people get around you! You get a truckload of birthday wishes on facebook, big bear hugs, and awesome presents... Oh and eat lots of cake!!
But hang on a second…What are we celebrating here?
We are celebrating another year of life. And if life, then the fact that we are still here means that we haven’t finished what we were supposed to do on earth... there's more that needs to be done in us and through us!
We were born with a purpose. Jeremiah 1:5 says, “Before I formed you in the womb I knew you, before you were born I set you apart…”
One thought leads to another and I find myself thinking, over the course of the year, have I grown? Have I accomplished something? Have I been living my life pleasing to Him? We should be constantly asking ourselves these questions as a reminder that we are still alive for a Purpose!
What were you born to do for your Creator?
Let’s walk each day knowing what our Purpose is and outliving it!
Being confident of this, that he who began a good work in you will carry it on to completion until the day of Christ Jesus.
