And just like that, another year has passed. Today, I turn 31.
I don’t really know what to do with 31. I think that after 25, you just have the big celebrations for the years that are multiples of 5. So…that means I have a few years to get ready for 35.
But what do I do with 31?
I feel really blessed and really grateful. That has everything and nothing to do with my birthday at the same time. But as I reflect on this year, what it has meant for Preacherman and our family, I think of this song, written by our friend Jordan. Here are the lyrics:
“I just wanna sing about His glory. I just wanna speak to you about how mighty He is. I just wanna praise Him because He’s worthy. I just want to live according to His will…Words can’t express my God and His ways. I give You all of the glory and praise. Your name above all other names. Your name above all names. I know a God who reigns over everything, won’t change when everything around me does. My faithful God loves me more than anything when I haven’t done anything to deserve His love…”
If there’s anything that I’m confident in, it is that I know this God of whom my friend sings so beautifully and passionately. And I’m so grateful for His steadfast love and faithfulness.
Be encouraged! Peace and Blessings!
