Age is Just A Number

Indeed your age is just a number.... According To God

Yes, Today is my birthday.





 And well simply, age is a number. Not saying I'm getting old, and having a mid life crisis. Your birthday is just another step forward in climbing the hill of life. Taking that next step up. Some are lower on that hill and some are further up. Where ever you are, it's the experiences with Family and Friends that make that hill to climb more interesting.

11 'For I know the plans that I have for you,' declares the LORD, 'plans to prosper you and not to harm you; give you a future and a hope12 'Then you will call upon Me and come and pray to Me, and I will listen to you. 13 'You will seek Me and find Me when you search for Me with all your heart.
Jeremiah 29: 11-13
God has a plan for us all. Whether we like it or not. God has planted something special in us. Something that will grow and grow, that will help form, new experiences, new laughs, and maybe even new tears. 

I personally HATE it when people judge one another for what they do in life, or what they have ect... God put us all in different settings; different situations, to live through and to live by. He all gave us something different in life. Knowing that, I really hate it when people make fun of others for what they have, what they like for two reasons. 1 They are making fun of God indirectly and 2 They could be hurting the persons feelings.


Indirectly, they are making fun of Gods plan for another person. Everyone was given their own thing; their own talent why make fun of them for that? God entrusted us to use these gifts for the good. For those people who make fun of others are usually self centered, self appraised, and self focused  They seek their own ways, and not that of God.

 It's them being scared of not knowing where they are going next. If they have their own way, they would simply plan out the rest of their life and plan things to go exact, but God knows life doesn't work that way. It simply doesn't. God has his own plan hidden from us. So we can't shape it into our own. It's for the better.

Regardless of your age, GOD WILL USE YOU! God will guide you, and use you to be part of his almighty plan. He is the GREAT and ever lasting God! God uses everyone, some may be in a smaller way and others in a bigger way. But at the end he uses us all. 


This takes great Faith. Faith defines us in Gods eyes. Our belief in the invisible; in the things which we cannot see.  Many people may find this strange but just has Jesus said,  "Blessed are those who have not seen and yet believe.” 

What a miracle it is to be given our own fruits; our own gifts. To be given that one thing that defines us for who we are. We are all given our own thing, our own identity, and it is with Faith that we are called to pray, to discern what that thing is, that we are meant to do. We are all called to do our part for this world. What ever our age is.


As much as I may not like Lil' Waynes music, I do certainly like the commercial he was put in for Mountain Dew. I fell in love with it from the moment I saw it. It's been on t.v for a while now, but if you haven't seen it Check it out: 



So, regardless of how old you are, God will use you. God has a plan for all of us. All you must do, is Pray To God Today, and Everyday, to discern his will for you. For God has plans to prosper you and not to harm you!!! God is Great! Have Faith!
