Give Thanks and Praise on Your Birthday

Birthdays are a blessing from God.  Without God we wouldn’t be born, and we wouldn’t continue to be alive.  Every day of life is a blessing from God.  Birthdays are extra special days since they’re filled with loved ones, good food, and fun.  Birthdays are a day to celebrate life and get to do something extra special.

As Christians we should take the time and remember God on our birthdays.  We should thank him for our lives and for all the blessings that he gives us.  We should also give him praise for creating us in his own image.  He created us to be loving and compassionate beings, and I know a lot of Christians who are.

I normally give thanks to God every chance I get, but I know that I have a lot to be thankful for on my birthday.  I am thankful for being born, I am thankful for the people God has put in my life, and I am thankful for opportunities God has put in my life.

On my birthday I also give thanks and praise for the best birthday present I ever received.  I’m also almost sure that it’s always going to be the best birthday present I’ll ever received.  For nearly 25 years I wished for and waited for a cat. Three years ago for my birthday I finally got the cat I had always wanted.  Needless to say she was the best birthday gift I could have ever asked for.

Christian’s and Birthdays

Since tomorrow is my birthday I decided to do my blog about birthdays.  Birthdays are a day we tend to focus on ourselves and the fact that we were born.  I am guilty of it myself.  As Christians we should take the time to remember that it was really God who created us and made our birth possible.  God is also the one who has been there for us since our births and will be there even after your worldly death.

Normally we make a birthday wish for ourselves every year.  Why do we do this?  Yes, it is our birthday but do we not care about others or the rest of the world?  What do we do with the birthday gifts that we get?  Do we hoard them all or do we share some of it with those who need it more?  Sometimes if I get money for my birthday I’ll donate a little of it to a church or charity.  Last year I shared my birthday gift with my beloved cat.

Sometimes on our birthdays we can get sad thinking about getting older.  Instead of getting sad, I get happy that I’m getting a little closer to being in heaven.  Sometimes we can also get sad that we didn’t get what we really wanted as well.  Remember, God has the ability to give you what you want any day of the year.  Just ask him for it!

Thank you for reading my post and may God bless you with many more birthdays to come!
