Is There A Message Just For You?

Today's post is a bit unusual I guess.
But I wanted to ask you...
Do you have a lucky number?
 A special number that means something to you.
Do you put any faith in luck?

Well in some way.... I do.
My number is 12.
For as long as I remember I have thought of this as my lucky number.

I was born on the 12th of March...
a few too many years ago.

So 312 is what I would call my lucky numbers.

What does that mean to me?
I always wanted to be #12 on a list.
Sit in the #12 seat.
Weird I know...

When I was in High School I showed quarter horses all over the Midwest.
I was Nationally ranked for two years.
And every single time I could use 312 as my show number I did.
This continued on thru adulthood.
When it came time to choose a wedding date I sure tried
to have it on the 12th, but the idea of having it on a Tuesday 
was not to be.... lol.
Then came my pregnancies and motherhood.
I was due on Nov 7th with my first child.
For weeks I told everyone I would have her on the 24th of October.
I have no idea why I felt so strongly about it.
Sure enough... she came early that morning.

12 x 2 = 24

Oh the crazy continues.

Then when I became pregnant with my second daughter...
She came on April 8th.

I it is a little weird...
Maddie: 24
Morgan: 48 (4/8)

Oh it even gets better....
My parents were born on the 4th and the 8th...
4 +8 = 12

So what does that mean to me now?
It is just a funny quirk I guess.

No, I don't go buying lottery tickets with those numbers.
But if I did, that is what I'd use.

So today I thought maybe those numbers could mean something else.

Maybe there was a message for me.

So I did a search to see the 3:12 verses in the Bible.
Here is what I found.....

Colossians 3:12
Therefore, as God's chosen people, holy and dearly loved, clothe yourselves with compassion, kindness, humility, gentleness and patience.

Ecclesiastes 3:12
I perceived that there is nothing better for them than to be joyful and to do good as long as they live;  also that everyone should eat and drink and take pleasure in all his toil—this is God's gift to man.
Ephesians 3:12
In whom we have boldness and access with confidence by the faith of him.

Philippians 3:12
Not that I have already obtained this or am already perfect, but I press on to make it my own, because Christ Jesus has made me his own.

Thessalonians 3:12
May the Lord cause you to increase and abound in love for one another, and for all people, just as we also do for you.

They all speak to me in different ways.
Maybe this was the message all along.
Made just for me to know.

Colossians 3:12
Therefore, as God's chosen people, holy and dearly loved, clothe yourselves with compassion, kindness, humility, gentleness and patience.

This is the one that speaks to my heart.
I will have it near me now as a message.

Have you thought about what your message might be?
It might be fun to look and see.
Leave it in the comments if it speaks to you as well.
I would love to hear about it.

Thanks for reading and God Bless.....Brooke
