What I Want For My 30th Birthday

What I Want For My 30th Birthday

Today I turned 30.

I feel like I’m supposed to lament, but I haven’t really been emotional about it.

Maybe because I’ve always been kind of an old soul.

In the past 3 decades, I’ve realized how important relationships are.

Real, solid, lifelong relationships.

I have people in my life who I can call when I need prayer.

I have friends and family that will encourage me when I’m down.

I have mom friends that won’t judge me when I say, “I need a break from my kids!”

I have a husband who loves and cares for me deeply.

I have 2 children who adore me even on my “bad mom” days.

I don’t have earthly treasures, but I know I’ll have something far greater in Heaven.

It is strange to think that my 20’s are gone.

Did I do enough the past 10 years?

How much time was wasted?

How many souls did I impact?

I’m determined to make this decade my best one yet.

If the Lord tarries, and I make it to 40, I want to start sliding down that hill being happy with what I did to further God’s Kingdom in my 30’s.

I want to be a better disciple in my 30’s.

I want to be a disciple of disciples.

I want to change more lives.

I want to touch Heaven more.

I want to shine my light brighter everywhere I go.

I want to have a bigger part in populating Heaven.

I want to minister more.

I want to encourage more.

I want to love people like God loves people.

I don’t want to waste a day not doing the Lord’s work.

I don’t know how many days I have left.

Jesus didn’t start His earthly ministry until He was 30.

I’m just getting started. 🙂
