The Tale of the Same Birthday

Nov 17, 2015  |     |   General

     Last week, as I was helping a guest fill out her Adopt A Guest Christmas form, I realized that we have the same birthdate, different years.  When I pointed it out to her, she asked me what year, and I told her.  She told me that on that exact date and year, as I was being born, she was beginning her sobriety! 

“Indeed, the very hairs of your head are all numbered. Don’t be afraid; you are worth more than many sparrows”.  –Luke 12:7

     This woman was very encouraged by how God cares about every detail in our life.  My guest said, “As you were being born, I was being reborn into a Child of God.  I made the decision to give my life to Jesus and be sober!”
     She was encouraged what a beautiful picture that was, saying she felt we had a spiritual connection and that she felt empowered by me.  That is Jesus at work, my friends!  What is awesome is that even when I was being born, God knew that someday I would meet this woman.  Praise God for divine callings and divine appointments!  We have a good, good Father!
