TODAY is My Birthday!
30 years ago, on a Sunday weighing 3lbs 14oz! A preemie named Coasta was born! :)
I am just so THANKFUL to be here for so many reasons! Honestly! Very Thankful, for His GRACE...that KEPT me!
The day, was my 26th Birthday, by 6pm that evening. No one important to me at that time, had called to wish me a Happy Birthday. I was upset. I was like WOW did they all just forget about me. Like, Really? What was crazy about me feeling this way, was I normally didn't care if people remembered or not...b/c I never made a big deal about my birthday. I didn't have parties, etc. So, it typically wasn't a big deal until that year.
So, because I was upset that my family and close particular friends hadn't called. I cried my lil self to sleep. While, I was sleeping. I had a dream and in my dream. I saw Jesus, like the visual that is portrayed of Him in the Footprints of the Sand poem. Just thinking of that is giving me chills!
|Key chain that was given to me...|
It was then, He was carrying me. All the times, I thought I was alone... He was showing me, in my dream. He was there and that He never left me. He didn't forget me. He didn't forget my birthday. To trust and know He's always there! I mean after I woke up. I was a lil nervous BUT I didn't need anyone to call me. Seeing the visual of Jesus in my dream was enough for me!
Then, when I went to church a few days later...one of my church sisters gave me this "Footprints" key chain. She was like, I don't know why...but I feel like I should give this to you! I was just blown away!! Till, this day I still have that key chain on my key ring! As, a reminder Jesus is always there! So, in your moment of despair...ALWAYS remember He is always there!
God said, “Never will I leave you; never will I forsake you.” Hebrews 13:5 NIV
