An involuntary cry and a breath of fresh- air. It is the day of your birth. The ones that love you welcome you into their world and the world at large.
They celebrate. Maybe even smoke a cigar with your name on it or at least your gender. You have been given life. Praise The Lord!!
The years go on and the celebrations continue once a year with much fan-fare, Carvel ice-cream cake, balloons with your loved ones singing to you. You feel special this one day a year, don’t you?
Well…isn’t every morning we wake up our birthday? We are born into a new day and the conscience world as we drift away from dream land.
We are given birth each new day. So we should be made to feel special every day by our friends and loved ones. The challenge is, how practical is it to eat ice-cream cake every day before an unhealthy inflated-number stares back at you from the much hated scale?
Real life and reality sets in and people are not treated like the birthday boy/girl and that celebrated-person every single day, not even in the imaginative fairy-tales where they live happily ever after. Oh well, at least we get that one day a year.
Wait! I do know someone that celebrates you on a daily basis. No, it is not your earthly father. He is the Father of all creation. Of course I am referring to God.
God loves us more than we can imagine. He created us and He doesn’t make any mistakes. He may not be blowing out the candles with us everyday and granting us our selfish wishes but He does make us feel special.
When you can grasp just how much God actually loves you, you will feel celebrated, approved, and you know how “good” you really are. Knowing that you are good makes a constant celebration of joy that can only be injected in us from the love of Christ.
You will recognize the celebration when receiving His love.
I love God because He first loved me. He sacrificed His son Jesus for me and I never really understood how much He loves me until it was revealed to me this year. He loves us more than you know.
God loves you and all of His children. He wants us to celebrate each other and love one another as if we are all siblings. Even when you don’t feel love from mankind, you can experience this love, peace, and joy that are gifts of the Holy Spirit.
When these gifts surface from your mind, body, and soul on a daily basis know that you are being celebrated on a daily basis by your creator.
Turn to God, ask Him to tell you the truth. Seek His Kingdom and live His celebration. Happy birthday my friends.
Celebrate! Celebrate! Dance to the music…
