Today is my birthday and I am praising the I AM for this amount of years here when I know if I was Him, my mercy would've ran out probably 5,000 years ago! He is not like me! His mercy, grace and love has been shown, proven on the cross of Jesus Christ! He had every single sin put on Himself, every label that the world and I have put on myself He put on Himself and stamps a new label on me: "Righteous"
It is only by grace that I live today and my God has given it so abundantly that there is no way I can ever repay Him. His death and resurrection have resurrected me in that I was dead in my trespasses and have now been made alive to live more abundantly with true, steadfast hope of Heaven and eternal life!
I woke up today and remember that some people say it's wrong to celebrate your birthday. That is ok if you don't want to celebrate a birthday, but I will regardless rejoice in my Lord and my God this day for all He has accomplished thus far and I look forward to the continuance of His work in me until it is finished when I am either killed or raptured away to be with Him forever.
For anyone who would seem contentious; I give you scripture to back my position.
In the same way, some think one day is more holy than another day, while others think every day is alike. You should each be fully convinced that whichever day you choose is acceptable. Those who worship the Lord on a special day do it to honor him. Those who eat any kind of food do so to honor the Lord, since they give thanks to God before eating. And those who refuse to eat certain foods also want to please the Lord and give thanks to God. For we don’t live for ourselves or die for ourselves. If we live, it’s to honor the Lord. And if we die, it’s to honor the Lord. So whether we live or die, we belong to the Lord. Christ died and rose again for this very purpose—to be Lord both of the living and of the dead.
Romans 14:5-9 NLT
