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 139:16, NLT)
I have heard of journaling, and some believe it’s a healthy lifestyle; good for the soul. You probably have done it before or perhaps are actively journaling your daily life.
Do you know God has a diary of your life? He keeps a record of your life in His book every single day. That’s how much the Father pays attention to you. Why would He bother to do so since He is a busy ‘man’? Yet He found time journaling your life every day.
Two possible reasons
He loves you
That would be the first reason He is recording your life. As a father, He would not want to miss out on anything related to you. He adores you like the way He loves His only Son.
He is proud of you
He chose to keep all of your progress in this lifetime in His diary because He is proud of you. Maybe He does this as a memory to share with you; when you return to His eternal arms.
You may think insignificantly about yourself. But I can assure you that God thinks highly about you. He is so proud of you, and if you could hear His voice every day, He would announce your name and all that you do to the cosmos.
Let us pray
You are such an amazing, wonderful Father to me. Even though You are sovereign and super powerful, You take time out for me. You keep my life stories in Your diary since I was in my mother’s womb, and the journaling continues daily until when I return to Your loving arms. I’m speechless because of Your love. I love You too.
