Admittedly, this year, my 39th year, causes some shock waves; like a wake up call or something. Not bad, but definitely something that makes me a little more alert to what I am doing, where I am going, and the decisions I make and why.
Just a minute ago I read a question from The Pioneer Woman's Blog.
If you could be one age for the rest of your life, what age would you be?
I can clearly say, I like where I am, right here, right now. I have been through some tough waters in the last ten years, emotionally speaking. I feel I am finally gaining some ground over fear, over hang-ups, insecurities and pits. I am finally resting in who I am in Jesus, understanding that more, and living in Him with greater fullness and joy. The blood, sweat and tears have been worth it, might I add.
I am also looking forward to what God has in the journey ahead; I have hope in my heart, deeper trust and greater victory. Sorrow and Loneliness are turning into Joy and Peace - like little Much Afraid discovered in Hinds Feet in High Places by Hannah Hurdard. (If you have never read it, it's worth doing someday!)
Only God can do that.
