“He who began a good work…”

This past weekend, I experienced more than one type of celebration of life.  Although we celebrated life coming to an earthly end, we also celebrated it’s beginning.  Meet Parker Benjamin Bizarro, my cousin Holli and, her husband, Pascal’s three-month old baby.

“For you formed my inward parts;

you knitted me together in my mother’s womb.

I praise you for I am fearfully and wonderfully made.

Wonderful are your works;

my soul knows it very well.”

Psalm 139:14

Life is a beautiful gift that God has given to each and every single one of us.  Before my grandfather passed away, I heard this over and over.  I believed it too, but not like I do now.

Seeing Parker and holding him in my arms reminded me that every single life–no matter how young or how old, well-known or unknown–is important.  God created your life with a specific purpose because He created it with YOU in mind.

I’ll leave today with a Bible verse to think about.  It’s Philippians 1:8, and it says,

“He who began a good work in you

will bring it to completion at the day of Jesus Christ.”

Be encouraged!
