Today I turn 29….
I’m really not sure how or when that happened but it did. I’m thankful for 29 years…it seems like time passes so fast even if it seems like our days move in slow motion….
I don’t know if it’s because it’s the last year of my 20s that has me deep in thought but God has gracefully reminded me this week that He has set my feet right here and right now for His calling and purpose. Thursday night He laid out a moment that reminded me that HE is the author and illustrator of this story…and I am just here to glorify Him.
I have seen A LOT in 29 years…and I have experienced A LOT in 29 years. There has been grief and joy, laughter and saddness, there has been darkness and there has been light. God is shaping me, God is making me into what He wants…
I made a mess of things until I surrendered my life to Jesus at 19…I still make a good mess don’t worry but my messes are quite different from those I made before. When reading and trying to find a verse that fit how I was feeling this year on my birthday God showed me this…that HE makes all things beautiful in HIS time. There are days when I wish I had made different choices and there are days when I can’t figure out why I have faced some of the things I have. As I look at where I am at, I am a testimony that God will make all things beautiful in His time….not perfect or mess free but beautiful.
