Birthday Reflection

Spread the love

“Jabez cried out to the God of Israel, “Oh, that you would bless me and enlarge my territory! Let your hand be with me, and keep me from harm so that I will be free from pain.” And God granted his request.” 1 Chronicles 4:10
I am a blessed woman.  Today is my birthday and I have had so much love poured into my life in the first 8 hours of the day it takes my breath away.
My pastor encouraged me to take time and reflect on how special God made me.  No one else in the world is like me  That I am His masterpiece.  I have to admit, it is hard for me to reflect on such things.  It isn’t how I feel about myself.  It’s hard for me to believe that is how God feels about me.  But it is.  That is what His word says about me.  That is what His word says about you!
I am reflecting though on how God answered my prayer from last year.  I prayed the prayer of Jabez and asked Him to enlarge my territory.  Oh how He has!  It is in the people He has blessed me with in my life.  Friends of old.  Friends of new.  Friends He’s brought back into my life.  Friend’s He’s restored and renewed.
God has given me more people to love this past year!  I’m so grateful.  They are all so wonderful!
I pray for even more next year.
My pastor was right, I am a masterpiece and so are you!
