Birthday Reflection

The Advent of Michelo Simuyandi

The events of history were controlled for my coming to this world

No less than for the coming of the savour

The time had to be ripe….

The place just right….

The circumstances ready….

Before I could be born

God chose the parents of his son and endowed them with the personality they needed for the child that would be born

I speak to God about the man and woman that he chose to be my parents…

Until I see that they had to be the kind of humans they were

If I was to become What God meant me to be…

The Christ child comes to the world, like every other child

To give the world a massage

What massage have I to give..?

I seek guidance from the lord to express it in a word Or image…

Christ came into the world to walk a certain path

Fulfil a certain destiny.

He consciously fulfilled what had been ‘written’ for him

As I look back and see in wonder what is written and has thus far been fulfilled in my own life…

And for each part of the script,

However small,

I say ‘thanks’

To make holy with my gratitude

I look with expectation and surrender

At all that is come…

And like Christ ….

I say, “Yes. Let your will be done”

Finally, I recall the song the angles sang when Christ was born…

They sang of Peace and Joy

That gives God glory

Have I ever heard the angles song when I was born?

I see with Joy what has been done through me

To make the world a better place

And I join the angels in the

Song they sang to celebrate my birth

And for the rest of my life on earth I will sing

Now unto him that is able to keep ‘me’ from falling, and to present ‘me’ faultless before the presence of his glory with exceeding joy, To the only wise God ‘my’ Saviour, be glory and majesty, dominion and power, both now and for ever.
