Meant to Be

I hope my children always know that they aren't on this earth by random chance. 

I hope each one of them understands and never forgets that they didn't just "happen."  They aren't just blobs of flesh & tissue, they are beautiful human souls with a purpose. 

I hope they live each day with joy, knowing that their lives have meaning and their Creator loves them dearly.

I hope YOU know it, too.

Here are the lyrics to the song above...it's beautiful!


Long Before You Drew Your First Breath

A Dream Was Coming True
God Wanted to Give A Gift To The World
So He Wrapped It Up In You

Every Step That You’ve Taken
Every Move That You Make
Is Part Of His Plan

You Were Meant To Be Touching
The Lives That You Touch
And Meant To Be Here
Making This World So Much More
Than It Would Be Without You In It

You Were Meant To Be Bringing
The Gifts That You Bring
And Singing The Songs
You’ve Been Given To Sing

You Are Perfectly, Wonderfully,
Beautifully Meant To Be
You Were Meant To Be

Long Before You Took Your First Fall
You stumbled to the ground God started telling the story of you to the angels around

Every failure and victory
Everything in between
Its all in His hand

You Were Meant To Be Touching
The Lives That You Touch
And Meant To Be Here
Making This World So Much More
Than It Would Be Without You In It

You Were Meant To Be Bringing
The Gifts That You Bring
And Singing The Songs
You’ve Been Given To Sing

For every breath that your taking

And every move that you make
It's a meaningful life you've been given
Live it well

What an awesome song! I wish that was required listening for every child who is lonely, or sad, or feeling forgotten. I think I'll make it required listening at my house...
