Paying attention to myself by presenting myself with some sweet birthday wishes isn’t what I normally do. However, because my body and soul need to feel happy and loved today, of all days, I decided to wish myself a happy birthday, hoping that I might want to celebrate my born day.
These holidays have me thinking about all my loved ones who are no longer living on this Earth. I’m deeply missing all of them. However, it is my son—Olumuyiwa Ade Keen—that I miss most of all!
Whatever is certain. Whatever is meaningful. Whatever is beautiful. Whatever brings you joy. Whatever makes you happy. Whatever is best for you. Think about all of that throughout the remainder of your holiday.
When we have genuine Faith in Father God, we won’t act like human beings are in control of the circumstances, letdowns, struggles, setbacks, washouts, and so on, that come our way. When we have genuine Faith in Father God, we won’t be afraid to show happiness when we are happy, and sadness when we are sad, and etc. Lastly, when we have genuine Faith in Father God, we know how to take things as they come—we know how to be truly “content” (to no longer be disturbed or disquieted by anything that happens to us in this world, because we faithfully trust in the finished work of Christ Jesus). As a result, we will have no need to be plastic Christians on the road to becoming problem children with disruptive, ungodly behaviors.
Happy New Year to you and your loved ones! God bless!
