She stopped the conversation and threw her hands in the air with a smile. “Hey! Guess what! I turned five yesterday!”
The light and excitement in her eyes inspired me.
I had forgotten a fundamental truth that our life in God truly begins when we accept Him. “For you have been born again…through the living and enduring word of God” (1 Peter 1:23 NIV).
I think we should start celebrating two birthdays in our lives. Our physical birthday, and the day we became part of God’s Heavenly family forever.
Because when you are a part of His Family, that’s when you truly live!
