Today is my 30th birthday.
I’ve been mulling around in my head (and with Preacherman) just what that means, and I honestly don’t have an answer. It’s hard to believe that I’ve been alive for 30 years. Last year, I marveled at turning 29 and the faithfulness of God over the past 29 years of my life. I am constantly amazed at God’s faithfulness.
More than anything, I feel so incredibly blessed. I got saved for real when I was 20 years old. The past 10 years have been such an amazing journey. When I think of all that God has done over my life, but particularly over those past 10 years, I am moved to tears. I finished college and graduate school, had amazing jobs in Georgia and Florida, moved back to North Carolina for another amazing job, got married, and moved back to Florida with my husband to pursue the purpose that God has for our lives.
Lord, You are good- You’ve been so good. Lord, You are good- You are better than good. I can’t praise You enough. I owe You my life. I can’t praise You enough, even if I tried. You’ve been so good to me…So many doors You’ve opened, so many ways You’ve made, so many times You’ve healed me- You’ve been better than good to me!
Yeah. That kind of sums it up for me. I can absolutely look back over my life and see where God has been true to His word on so many different occasions. Goodness and mercy has followed me, His plans have prospered me; given me hope and a future, Nothing has separated me from His love– all in His word and all in my life.
Cheers to 30! I can’t wait to see what God has in store for the next 30 years
Another testimony of my 20s: “All we want and all we need is found in Jesus/All we ask is more of you/Nothing else can satisfy our hearts desire/All we want is more of you/For the Lord is good/And His love endures/Yes the Lord is good forever/And I’ll shout it out/from the mountain tops/Yes the Lord is good forever…” –Israel and New Breed “More and More“
