Forever Young

“I am strong now as I was when Moses sent me on that journey.”
Joshua 14:11

I always felt that my parents treat me as a kid who always need to be dictated what to do or not. I used to cover it with a reason that I am the only child in the family so I understand but it still made me feel offended especially now that I’m already 26 . Something inside my head ask me, do you really act as a mature woman? I stopped and realized, I’m not. Same when I was a kid, I don’t help my parents in household chores, I don’t even fix my own room, I spend most of my time at home watching tv, or playing games in the computer until late at night and now, what do I expect? My parents treat me as a kid because I act as one not because of any reason.

I’m one of the eldest in my cousins both in my mother and father side which reminds me of the verse in Joshua on how Caleb had been a good example to the people decade after decade. If I will stick on my attitude how will I become a good example to the people around me. Psalm 39:4 also reminds me that my time on earth is numbered and not a permanent thing. I can still be considered as young but only God can say my remaining time.

Prayer:
Father, as I progress today I pray Father that you will guide me and give me a responsible heart and mind. I pray Father for your grace for me to become a mature woman that you want me to be so that I will be a good example to the people around me. And as the people around me see the changes and maturity in me I pray Father that they will see you through me. I lift everything to you Father and always let Your will be done. In Jesus, mighty name I pray, Amen.

When God made you He must have been thinking of….

When I first heard the song When God Made You by Newsong I felt so kilig* and I uttered to myself I wish I could sing this with my special someone on my wedding day. Well, I think this song was really created for a couple and mostly heard on a wedding day but just this morning while humming and singing some lyrics that I remembered from the song;

♪♫”When God made you, He must have been thinking about me.”♪♫.

God made me realized that this song is reminding me how special I am in God’s sight, how special we all are in our Heavenly Father’s eyes that even when He was creating the people around us (our parents, siblings, friends, relatives, boyfriend or husband, girlfriend or wife or even the people that we will just bump into) He was still thinking of us. Imagine that!? I can’t help myself but share this wonderful feeling and put it into writing on my blog.

We are not just created to make our own dreams come true but other’s dreams as well. You might think or ponder that your life is just a waste and no one loves you or cares for you. I’m telling you God loves you (John 3:16) and He knows you so well that even the number of strands of your hair are known to Him (Matthew 10:30-31). That’s how special you are to Him. He created everything for you.

Think of this;
You are a gift perfectly made from God to other creations.You might be the girl of others dream or the guy she’d been waiting for. You might be the answer to other’s prayer because when God made you, He must have been thinking about others too…

Share your life and spread God’s love.

To spread more love here is the lyrics of the song When God Made You.

♪♫ WHEN GOD MADE YOU lyrics
by Newsong featuring Natalie Grant

(Guy)
Its always been a mystery to me,
How two hearts can come together,
And love can last forever.
But now that I have found you I believe,
That a miracle has come when God sends the perfect one.
So gone are all my questions about why,
And i’ve never been so sure of anything in my life

Chorus:
Oh I wonder what God was thinking,when he created you.
I wonder if He knew everything I would need,
Because he made all my dreams come true.
When God made you, He must have been thinking about me.

(Girl)
Ooo ooo,I promise that wherever you may go, wherever life may lead you,
With all my heart I’ll be there too.
And from this moment on I want you to know,
I’ll let nothing come between us, and I will love the ones you love.
(guy)o gone are all my questions about why (girl echoes):about why

Duet:
Oh I wonder what God was thinking when he created you,
I wonder if He knew everythin I would need,
Because He made all my dreams come true.
When God made you He must’ve been thinking about me.

Bridge:
He made the sun He made the moon,
To harmonize a perfect tune,
One can’t do without the other they just have to be together.
And that is how I know its true,
Your for me and i’m for you and my world
Just cant be right without you in my life

Chorus
(Guy) He must have heard every prayer I’ve been praying (girl echo)
I’ve been praying (both)He must’ve knew everything I would need

When God made you, He must’ve been thinking about me.♪♫
