I turn 4 years old today!🎉 Back on June 16th, 2015 alone on a bunk bed in Mason, TX, around 11pm, I ACTUALLY made Jesus LORD of my life!!! 🙌 I was broken, alone, and worried, but boy does that all change when you commit to Him!
I couldn’t help but post this video that was made this week for a friend that hosts a Bible study called Believe Ministries, in Athens, Tx. There isn’t a better way to celebrate this type of birthday, than by reminding yourself of where you have been, and what God has done in your life!
In the Old testament, Israel would build altars to the LORD for obvious victories which the LORD intervened in on their behalf. These altars are still celebrated to this day through festivals. It is crazy to think, but Israel is either in a festival, or preparing for a festival at any given point throughout their calendar year. What party animals! But these celebrations have a purpose. They are centered around testimonies of God’s faithfulness, and the point of these celebrations is so the stories of these monumental moments are told throughout the generations. Israel understands their success as a nation is contingent on the individual understanding what God has done, and who God is. These truths are only communicated through the telling of stories of their nations history, or their testimony.
This year, like Israel still does, let’s celebrate and acknowledge triumphs in our lives by telling our story. Testimonies simultaneously remind us of where we have been, and who God is – the source of our strength.
Until next time.
