One Year Older

I just recently celebrated my birthday. Some dread this day because it means they are another year older. Others get excited and look forward to being another year older. I look at it as another year of opportunities and adventures!

 

With each new year there are new expectations. For me it seems those are to be married, have children, be in a career working full time, but what if that’s not what the plan is for my life? What if God has other plans?

 

I am newly 28 years old and I have many friends who are married, have children and I have none of those. I have been in 2 weddings this year and will have attended and been invited to about 8 just in this year alone! I am at “that age” people tell me. And you know what??? I am very happy with where I am in life. I do desire to be married and have children one day and I know it will happen for me, but not yet.

 

I can tell you that with each year it gets better and better. This year I have discovered who I am and what God wants me to do and I am launching my own business! I don’t have my own family, but I do have parents who love and support me, family and friends who stand beside me, and a God who will never leave my side or let me down. I would have to say I am pretty blessed and happy where my life is now and where it is going.

 

I know from the outside looking in I am not where society says I should be and that is more than ok. I am NOT OF THIS WORLD and I am following the one who made me the way I am. I am trusting in his plans for my life and I know with each year, because I am trusting in Jesus, my life gets better and better.

 

How are you viewing each of your years? Are you going into your next year of life with goals? Are you excited for all you can accomplish? Are looking forward to your next adventure? Are you happy where you are? Whether you just had a birthday or it is months away, it is never too late to make this your best year yet!

 

I am 28 and feeling great! : )

Commit to the Lord whatever you do, and he will establish your plans.

Proverbs 16:3

Many are the plans in a person’s heart, but it is the Lord’s purpose that prevails.

Proverbs 19:21

For I know the plans I have for you,” declares the Lord, “plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future.

Jeremiah 29:11

  7. I’m impressed, I have to admit. Seldom do I encounter a blog that’s both educative and amusing, and let me tell you, you have hit the nail on the head. The problem is something that too few men and women are speaking intelligently about. I am very happy I found this during my hunt for something relating to this.
