I have a question and I beg you to answer it! I want to hear from you but please stick to the question at hand.
According to you: Are babies born from Divine Intervention or are they born from the sins of man?
My take: If they are born from Divine Intervention then ALL babies are purposeful, thought of, and are not an accident, made by their Creator. If they are born from the sins of man then they are ALL consequences, ripple effects of the cause and effect of sin and can therefore be categorized as accidents or unwanted troubles which we keep dealing with from generation to generation.
So which one?

Don’t you hate being known as “that person”?
“That person”, the one who loses it at the end of the day in tears. “That person”, the one who loses it because of someone else’s actions. “That person”, the one who everyone is waiting to see when the fuse will be lit. “That person”, the one who they expect some kind of reaction from. “That person”, who collapses due to insecurities and weakness.
What if I could be known as “that person” who is known for the positive instead of the negative?
“That person”, who overcomes the day. “That person”, who rises above the challenging person. “That person”, who doesn’t accept defeat but accepts victory through grace, kindness and love in response. “That person” who smiles in the face difficulty.
I so desire to be “that person” who exemplifies Christ’s grace, mercy, love, kindness, and forgiveness. I also desire to be “that person” who exemplifies Christ’s strength in me where I do not fall apart and I do not crumble in my own insecurities. The only way I can truly be victorious is through Him so I can become “that person” who He has created me to be, not who I have created, in and through Christ, His strength will be seen.
Look for me, I am going to become “that person.”
