We Were Not an Accident

accident

Jeremiah 1:4-5 (NIV)

The word of the Lord came to me, saying,

“Before I formed you in the womb I knew you,
    before you were born I set you apart;
    I appointed you as a prophet to the nations.”

God knew us before we were even born.  What an amazing thought that is!  He saw our unformed substance and said, “I have a purpose for this life.  I have good plans for them.”  Then He breathed His life into us and sent us through our mothers and fathers.  We have been handpicked by the Almighty God to be here at this time in this place in history.  There is nothing but ourselves that can stop us from being all that God intended for us to be.

Sometimes we hear parents say, “We weren’t expecting this child.  They were a surprise.  They were an accident.”  That is not true.  While that child may have been a surprise to the parents, they were not a surprise to God.  No child can be born without God breathing His life into them.  You may think, “I was unwanted.  I was an unplanned pregnancy.”  No, you would not be here if God didn’t want you here.

In God’s eyes, there is no such thing as a mistake.  God does not make mistakes.  God never says, “Oops.”  Remember that God knew each one of us before we were even born.  We need to be confident in His love knowing that we are each a person of destiny and we are each a part of His mighty plan.

Let’s take time today to thank God for the life He has given us and for putting us here in our earthly families.  If we have the approval of God, the approval of others should not matter that much.

About wmarsau

Most of the people who visit this blog already know me so it is kind of pointless to try to describe my life in this short little blurb. What is the purpose of this blog is the question. Over the course of this last year I have been exposed to some amazing people and have made personal development an important focus of my life. Being successful, not by the world's standards, but by God's has become my main focus. Mainly, I want to work to develop myself as a person who is kinder, reaches out to help those in need, and truly makes a difference in this world. To this end I am constantly reading and am exposed to so many differnet things along the way. These have been amazing and it is helping me grow so much. Then I started to think, "Why am I being so selfish?" You need to share with others these amazing things you are learning and being exposed to. That is where this blog comes into play. As I am reading and experiencing things that are truly amazing and life changing, I will be posting them on this blog. Obviously, I will not be able to post everything in it's entirity, but I will be summarizing them and letting you know the source of the article or book they come from so you can check them out later if you wish. I want this blog to be a place where you can go to often and be inspired and leave here with a smile on your face. I will be covering all kinds of different topics dealing with success and personal development. Topics like taking action, relationships, living to your potential, reinventing yourself, finances, leadership, presenting, goal setting, time management, etc. I will also be occasionally including topics on cooking, music, and gardening because they are special interests of mine. As a little disclaimer, I have given my life to the Lord and he is #1 in my life. I am his servant and everything I do in life is for his glory. With that being said, religion influences all areas of my life. There will be references to God in this blog because I can't seperate God from this or any other area of my life. I want you to know that if you do not believe in God, that is fine. That is your choice. This blog is open to anyone who wants to better their life. I will not be trying to influence or pressure anyone into having a relationship with the Lord from this site. Please don't feel uncomfortable. You can just read the portions of the blog that you wish to. I am inviting you to go on a journey with me. We will learn together to be the kind of people we were designed to be. Anyone can make a difference in this world, but it starts%
