Happy Jesus Day:
For years, I was told that I chose the father of my children, and I believed it because that’s what I heard and when trouble arose. Then I was having trouble because I didn’t wait on God for the man. None of this matters when God is in control. I now know I was a vessel to be used by God. God says in (Jeremiah 1:5) “Before I formed you in the womb, I knew you; before you were born, I sanctified you; and ordained you a prophet to the nations.” I realize God uses humble people to accomplish great things. Jeremiah is known as the weeping prophet. If we are not humble, He can bring us to our knees. God has total control even when a child is conceived. It is God’s plan, not ours. A child’s birth is not a mistake or mishap; you may not have planned on a child, but God did. God decided how you would be born. Regardless of the circumstances of your birth or who your parents are, God had a plan in creating you; It doesn’t matter whether your parents were good or bad or indifferent. God knew those two individuals possessed the genetic makeup to make the child He had in mind for His purpose. They had the DNA God wanted. They may have been illegitimate parents, but there are no illegitimate children. Children might be unplanned by their parents, but not by Go. He is not surprised by their birth. He expected it. God does not make mistakes. We were conceived in God’s mind and vessels to be used by God. I thank God for allowing me to be the mother and the vessel that brought my children into this world.
