I was no accident….
My parents often used to joke that as the youngest of three children I was not planned, I was an accident. That has never really affected or worried me, it’s a standing family joke. But today something dawned on me, none of us are accidents. We are all part of God’s perfect plan, he designed us, destined the day of our birth, the place of our birth and the family of our birth. Every element chosen to ensure we become who we are, to strengthen us, build up personality and character traits that he can use for his Kingdom.
Some of us may look at our circumstances, our past, our families and have regrets or questions for God. Let’s just stop and take a second to think. We were planned. God is not happy when things go wrong, when we are hurt by those he placed us with, but his intentions for our lives is perfect, he knows the plans he has for us, plans to prosper and not to harm.
So perhaps today is the day to praise God for our circumstances, to praise God for his plans and to appreciate that nothing is accidental in the world of our amazing God.
I am no accident, no chance event, I am not a fluke occurrence, I am planned, my life was meant, I am where God wants me to be right now, and this I know, God knows the plans he has for me, plans to prosper and not to harm me, God loves me unconditionally, nothing to see here no worries or fear, I am no accident, my life is real, this life is meant.
