I am not an accident…



I am not an accident. My birth was no mistake or mishap and my life was not a just coincidence. My parents may not have planned me but God definitely did. He was not at all surprised by my birth. In fact, he expected it.

Indeed, long before I was conceived by my mom and my biological dad, I was first conceived in the mind of God.

It is neither fate, luck, coincidence nor chance – that I am breathing at this very moment. I am alive because God wanted to create me.
The Bible says, ”The Lord will fulfill His purpose for me.”

These are just some of the learning I had from one of my favorite inspirational books, The Purpose Driven Life by Mr. Rick Warren.

These lines were perceived and learned from its Day Two. These words have taken away my grudges, bitterness and resentment over my biological father. Most of all, these words of wisdom and reality have encouraged me to pursue and continue what I am doing right now, to be inspired and feel so blessed, and to keep on breathing with much optimism, love, determination and courage.

Hear! Hear!

It is so good to know that you are realizing all of these now while still at a young age. Imagine carrying all these burden if you haven't.

Best to always have an open mind about things, that way more positive things get attracted into your life.

My daughter, my eldest was not planned. She is now 32. And everyday of my life I thank the Lord for her.

God is good!
Cheers!

Oh yeah I am selfish. I am happy that you have seen what I have yet to encounter, but I thank you for inviting me on such a journey.

When you are done scratching you head, trying to figure out what I am talking about. Say Hello.

That is exactly how i feel about first son who was a complete surprise and a tough pregnancy for me (i left his sperm donor which was an abusive relationship and didn't have support from my parents). Thankfully God knows exactly what he is doing! i know Chandlur was created for great things in his life!
