On this 36th anniversary of my birth, I find myself reflective not of my life but of the life of Christ in me. At the start of this year I was very conscience of God's grace and of the intentional love that He manifest in the life of His Son, Jesus Christ; and how greatly this love has changed my life. Not many years ago, I was deeply convinced that I would never see the age of 40, never marry and never have children. But God, in His Intentional Love, saw through me. He guided me to Himself and gave me LIFE on purpose. I am encouraged today not because I am celebrated but because I have Life. I have life in me and all around me. I am grateful to my husband and our four children. Their lives give me strength. Each one of them reflects a facet of God that I only see when I look at them. I am grateful for the purpose that God has given me. I am, both honored and humbled by His call. My only hope and wish on this day is to continue living the life God has given me with intentional love on purpose.
I pray for you too. That you would receive the love of God that not only makes life fulfilling but makes it rich as well. Live life on purpose. Enjoy every second of it! God has a perfect plan for you.
