24th Birthday Dinner = Sushi Feast!
At the end of the day, I reflect back on the Scriptures. Psalm 71, some coined it the "birthday psalm" because of its references to the psalmist's day of birth, pens a great picture of how we are to be thankful to God and glorify him for giving us life and life more abundantly.
Psalm 71:5-8, "For you are my hope, O Lord GOD; you are my trust from my youth. By you I have been upheld from birth; you are he who took me out of my mother's womb. My praise shall be continually of you. I have become as a wonder to many, but you are my strong refuge. Let my mouth be filled with your praise and with your glory all the day."
May that be my birthday wish to you King Jesus! O Lord, may I only be filled with your praise and your glory all day long, radiating your magnificent new creation and regeneration you created in me, by giving me a new birth through faith alone, by grace alone, in Christ alone, to the praise of the glory of the grace of God.
