So, I am not sure how it happened, but I turned 30 today.
Not gonna lie, I love birthdays! I mean, who doesn’t – one whole day dedicated to muah! I was reminded of this happiness as I rubbed my eyes and hopped out of bed this morning. And then it hit me, I am no longer in my twenties. Though I don’t feel any different today than I did yesterday – the sheer knowledge of turning 30 bothers me.
I’m no longer the care-free 20 something anticipating life as it unfolds. Nope, I’m an adult with a job, mortgage, dog, chores – ya know, the works. Please don’t get me wrong, I am incredibly blessed, and so very thankful for all that God has entrusted to me. But it is a reality check.
As I embark on this new decade, I pray I am more intentional with my faith. I desire to be in the center of God’s will and to start making an eternal impact for His Kingdom. No small feat, I know. But as I am granted another year of life – I believe it’s important to spend it for His purpose.
So here’s to my 30’s! Oh and now I’m off to my favorite Mexican restaurant for dinner with my hubby. Yumm!
So that you will walk in a manner worthy of the Lord [displaying admirable character, moral courage, and personal integrity], to [fully] please Him in all things, bearing fruit in every good work and steadily growing in the knowledge of God [with deeper faith, clearer insight and fervent love for His precepts].
Colossians 1:10 (AMP)
