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. 🙂
