Tomorrow is my birthday. I will be 56 years of age. Not old. Not young. Just of age. It is a good age to be. I have enjoyed many of life’s experiences. The girl friend of my youth still blesses me by laughing at my jokes. My son has blessed me with a beautiful daughter-in-law and grandkids. God has had His hand in all of life’s experiences.
Many of my life’s adventures did not turn out as I would have preferred, but they created in me the man I have become. I believe I am becoming the man God desires to spend eternity with. From that perspective, I can not fault God for the failures in my life. It is from the pit, I have been able to look up and see God’s face. In being rescued from the pit, I am able to see God’s power, mercy and grace.
Whether in the pit or out of the pit, God continues to be God and has blessed me with the best gift of all. He allowed His Son to die on the cross for my sins such that I might have the opportunity to spend life eternal with Him.
For my birthday, might you consider accepting God’s best gift of all?
“if I visit a deadly disease on that country, pouring out my lethal anger, killing both people and animals, and Noah, Daniel, and Job happened to be alive at the time, as sure as I am the living God, not a son, not a daughter, would be rescued. Only these three would be delivered because of their righteousness.” ~God
