25 to 26

I am currently in my 25th year of salvation. 7-11-22 will make 26.

Somehow I did the math wrong and thought this one coming was 25.

According to biblestudy.org, 25 symbolizes ‘grace upon grace.’ It is composed of 20 (meaning redemption) and five (grace) or grace multiplied (5 x 5).

I was so excited. I was getting a t-shirt and told people.

But then I did the calculation. I was bummed.

26 is a lot of nothing. J/K. It is a word salad that symbolizes something. But it isn’t nice and cute like 25. Lol.

We can go with 20.

But 6?

The number 6 and its meaning is related to man and human weakness, the evils of the devil and the manifestation of sin. Man was created on day six of creation week. Men are appointed 6 days to labor.

But you know what, since I came to this realization a few weeks ago, I discovered that this season of my life is one of service. So, it is appropriate. Ha.

And I stay remembering just how frail I am. To be aware of the place God has, the place I’m in, the place I came from, and the place I can return to.

Wow. I promise I don’t sit down with most of this stuff in mind. It hits me as I write it.

Someone in the Bible said that their sin was ever before them. I think they said it to remember who they are and what they are capable of. I could be wrong. I’m gonna go read it for myself and you should too.

Numbers matter. They mean things. In the right context for the right reason. That’s all I’ll say about that.

Happy Birthday to me. To the future!!!!!

Go be great. Someone is counting on it.
