It’s my Birthday!
It’s my birthday today.
“What day is this? No wonder it is very cold in a special way. A day different from all the others. Why? Because God chose this day to bring you to this world. You bring a smile not only in our hearts, but also faces. Happy birthday dear”
This was by far my best message on my birthday. That and my 2 year old singing ‘Happy Birthday to Mama. God bless you today, God bless you always’. And it reminded me of John 16:21 “A woman giving birth to a child has pain because her time has come; but when her baby is born she forgets the anguish because of her joy that a child is born into the world. “
Here are a couple of other praise verses I read that reminded me of how blessed I was:
Psalm 118:24 The LORD has done it this very day; let us rejoice today and be glad.
Psalm 91:16 With long life I will satisfy him and show him my salvation.
For I know the plans I have for you,” declares the LORD, “plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future.
You make known to me the path of life; you will fill me with joy in your presence, with eternal pleasures at your right hand.
Psalm 90:12 Teach us to number our days, that we may gain a heart of wisdom.
The LORD your God is with you, the Mighty Warrior who saves. He will take great delight in you; in his love he will no longer rebuke you, but will rejoice over you with singing.
Lamentations 3:22-23 Because of the LORD’s great love we are not consumed, for his compassions never fail. 23 They are new every morning; great is your faithfulness.
The LORD bless you and keep you; the LORD make his face shine on you and be gracious to you; the LORD turn his face toward you and give you peace.
Happy Birthday to Me
