How are you doing?
How is your week going?
I feel like I have to give you gist from the birthday because I told you I didn't know how the day was going to turn out and how I was going to celebrate.
Well *drumrolls and batting eye lids*, I had one of the best birthday ever.
I received calls, read messages, received gifts, slept very well, ate very good food with a lot of cake and was very well pampered by family and friends.
I'm already thinking of what to do next year.
Well, for this week I really want to be short and straightforward.But maybe I should still say a story.
A few years ago, I think it was a nice Sunday evening. My mum, sisters and I were in the room throwing our usual banters and then my tongue decided to get a mind of its own. I said some not nice things and guess who was very upset by my statements? My mum. After I finished, I don't remember if I apologised immediately, but at night, we all went to bed especially me feeling quite bad. Very early the following morning, I went to my mum's room to apologise again after I realised how upset she must have been. But guess what I found? As soon as I got into her closet, she was already dressing up and ready to help me get to work. Like she had already forgotten my misbehaviour or she still decided to love me despite my wrong doing the previous day.
Irrespective of my misconduct, my value had not diminished in her eyes.
She looked beyond the Miss Onakz that really upset her the day before. She never saw me as silly or stupid or foolish (Oh well, even if she has, she's never told me so).
Imagine that!Despite my inadequacies, my mum still thinks the world of me and even knowing that she does, I will never do anything that would hurt her deliberately. .
How much more with God? If my mum thinks so much of me, I can only imagine and find out from His word what God thinks.
Irrespective of what I do, my value is not reduced in His eyes. However, that does not mean I should continue to be a nuisance or continue to act however I please.
[The Lord answered] “Can a woman forget her nursing child
And have no compassion on the son of her womb?
Even these may forget, but I will not forget you.
“Indeed, I have inscribed [a picture of] you on the palms of My hands;
Your city walls [Zion] are continually before Me.
Isaiah 49: 15 -16 (The Amplified Bible)
Although your value is never diminished in God's eyes, please make sure you live a life that always honours Him.
Have a wonderful week honouring your maker.
Loads of love, hugs and kisses.
