This is the truth. A birthday can have a strange effect on people. Some celebrate for the whole week while others fall into a pit of depression. Others, like my friend and ministry partner, Debra, don’t like to “make a big deal out of it.”
Here is more truth. Every birthday you have is a gift from God, and in my opinion, it should be celebrated! Listen to His word and see if you agree.
“All the days ordained for me were written in your book before one of them came to be.” Psalm 139:16b (NIV)
If it’s your special day, it was ordained by the Creator of the universe. As He looks on you with love, He’s probably smiling as you celebrate the wonderful things that He has done in your life.
Now listen. I know some have had a rough life and you may feel like there is nothing to be happy about, but I have Good News! Jesus has come to set you free! Sometimes, when things are beyond tough, He’s all that keeps me sane!
