I’ve used this Chinese Fortune Greeting card base many times because it is an all occasion card and I since I have a printout of funny fortunes they go together fast for a quick greeting.
“Living your life is a task so difficult, it has never been attempted before.”
That is a whimsical way of saying the truth! We are all one of a kind and what a journey we have been on since the day we took our first breath.
You made all the delicate, inner parts of my body and knit me together in my mother’s womb. Thank you for making me so wonderfully complex! Your workmanship is marvelous—how well I know it. You watched me as I was being formed in utter seclusion, as I was woven together in the dark of the womb. You saw me before I was born. Every day of my life was recorded in your book. Every moment was laid out before a single day had passed. Psalm 139: 13-18 (NLB)
Wow! “Every moment was laid out before a single day had passed.”
God knew everything I was going to encounter before my parents even saw my face for the first time. He knew my talents, faults, personality and the ups and downs in this life I would encounter. It’s a good thing He knew, and I am exceedingly glad I didn’t know.
I consider myself an overcomer (not a victim) and part of my purpose is to join hands with those on the path of my journey to encourage them overcome too.
After thinking about it, this whimsical fortune really hits the nail on the head. Life is sometimes tough, but God is good. He watched over us before we were born and knew in advance all rejection, unfairness, and injustice we would encounter. Those negative experiences carved us into who we are today. Adversity makes us strong. In my life every experience of unfairness has eventually led to a conclusion of forgiveness…. that is so good for the soul. So…. we just keep on keeping on!
