Today is my birthday. I don’t tell you this so you can wish me a great day (Although, it will be great if you do). Birthdays usually make me reflect on how I feel and how the last year has been spent.
Last year at this time I was feeling restless, my talents were feeling unused and I was working 3 jobs. This year is so different! I love doing the work I’m doing. I’m down to 1 (paying) job and God is using my talents in ways I’ve only dreamed of!
When I look back on what has happened in the last year, it seems like there is no way it all could have been crammed into the last 365 days. When I look over the last 5 1/2 years, it seems like a lifetime. When I look over my lifetime I see that God has never changed.
God has been there through every heartache, grief, joy, pain, illness, marriage, birth. He has been there through the anxiety, the troubled times of my childhood, the stupidity of my youth.
My CD, “Believe:There Is Hope” is recorded and ready to be duplicated. I hope then when you have a chance to listen to it you will hear about all that God has done. It is through HIM that I have a voice and song.
“The LORD is my strength and my song; he has become my salvation. He is my God, and I will praise him, my father’s God, and I will exalt him.” Exodus 15:2 NIV1984
I thank God for another birthday. For another day to lift my voice and praise him for His faithfulness in my life.
