This year is my golden birthday! I turned 30 on March 30th.
If you asked me at 20 where I would be at 30 it would not say here. If I’m honest I don’t remember what I said but I know I didn’t say this lol
But I’m thankful. Thankful to be on this journey with God. Thankful that I don’t have to figure anything out. Thankful that God has never let me go.
In the last 30 years, I learned what it meant to flirt with people and sins that I should not have and it never ends well. I always end up too far down a path I was only trying to peek down. I’m thankful that God always allows me to turn around. He didn’t always save me from the consequences of my bad decision but he always saves me from myself.
I learned what it means to be in dirty situations and get out alive. That sounds dramatic but I’ve had more car wreck than someone my age should. In each wreck, I come out alive. I’m thankful to be here.
I’ve learned what it means to be unworthy of so much but receiving it because of the goodness of God. His acceptance of me as his child is what made me worthy, nothing I ever could do.
I’m thankful for the journey of the last 30 years. The lessons from the first 30 I will take with me into the next. God is my sustainer, my provider, and most importantly he loves me. If I can remember these simple truths I know I can make it through the next 3 decades.
I’m excited about what 30 has in store for me; even though I don’t quite know what it is. But what I do know is…
God is good y’all!
