The psalmist wrote, “Praise the Lord, my soul; all my inmost being, praise his holy name.” - Psalm 103:1 (NIV)
I used to look forward to birthdays. My 16th birthday was a milestone I greatly anticipated. I was not just excited about getting my driver’s license and being able to drive. I was excited about growing up.
As I got older, birthdays lost their luster. I did not look forward...
Birthdays can remind me of God’s faithfulness.

I join many of those who will pray for you as you seek to discern what you are called to be at this moment. May God grant you the courage to fulfill that calling. May we all open our eyes and see the misery, open our ears and hear the cries of God’s people, and, like God through the Lord Jesus Christ, be incarnate amongst them.”
