Do you know about your DNA? You inherited your earthly DNA from your parents. Usually tall parents have tall children and short parents have short children. Athletic parents usually have athletic children. There are exceptions of course. I know several parents who are around five feet l0 inches tall who have children who are well over 6 feet tall. You can never be sure about your children. There is an area where you can be sure about your DNA. Your Heavenly Father created you. Before you were a gleam in your parents eye God knew all about you. God breathed life into you. You have his genes. You have his wisdom, strengths, talents and abilities. God has a purpose for you. You are not a mishap. Your life is planned. You have the ability to do what God has planned for you. Do not be discouraged when things don't go as you have planned. Follow the path He planned for you.
