For God does speak—now one way, now another—
though no one perceives it. –Job 33:14
You: Hey! What’s up Jesus?
Luv4all: Happy Birthday!
You: Hehe, not my bday, dude!
Luv4all: Yes it is. I would know. 😉
You: My birthday isn’t for 5 months. You feeling okay?
Luv4all: It’s all good. You don’t get it.
You: Get what?
Luv4all: My present. I send you one every day.
You: Okay… what?
Luv4all: Life! You get Life from me everyday. So everyday is your birthday.
You: Oh…like REbirth. I get you.
Luv4all: No. Rebirth is important. You get that too. But every day is a NEW BIRTH. A new chance. A new opportunity. A new lease on Life.
You: This is deep, JC.
Luv4all: I KNOW it’s deep. Remember this: “In him was life, and that life was the light of all humankind”? I want you to embrace my light, like it’s the candle on your birthday cake, every single day.
You: How come I’m just hearing about this?
Luv4all: *groans* I tried scripture–you’re too busy. I tried talking to you in your prayers–you have trouble listening. I tried speaking through other people–you always have somewhere else to be.
Luv4all: It’s alright. I’m just pointing out that the only way you seem to be able to communicate these days is through texting. Not exactly the easiest mode for transmitting Grace and Truth, you feeling me?
You: I feel you. Sorry.
Luv4all: Don’t hassle it. Short and sweet is better than nothing.
You: So, it’s my birthday. New Life.
Luv4all: That’s right. Celebrate by living the freedom that comes with it.
You: Okay. I will.
Luv4all: Okay. Gotta go. Thumbs getting tired.
You: LOL. Thanks, Jesus.
Luv4all: No prob. But remember, a little prayer never hurt anyone. And my data plan?
Have a good week,
