It’s been a weekend full of celebrating and I’m grateful. I’m officially 37 years old today! 🎂
I was looking through Facebook memories and pictures that friends sent me along with birthday wishes today, and just reminiscing on my adulthood.
I’m not where I want to be but DANG I’m not where I once was!
In my opinion, the essence of a well lived life is continual growth. I never want to stay the same. I want to grow and become more like Jesus until the day I die.
I surely don’t do it perfectly. I’m petty, I do and say things I don’t want to do and say. I still struggle with so many insecurities and imperfections. And a lot of childhood heartache. A lot of hard emotions with unhealthy coping mechanisms.
BUT I can wholeheartedly say that I am a new creation. I’m not living my life in vain. God created me for a purpose and I am striving to tap into that daily.
It’s a continual surrender of myself and He’s healing me and changing me and it’s beautifully, painfully awesome.
The following are some lyrics from one of my favorite current songs. Thank you, Lord for all you’ve done and will continue to do in my life.
”Look what You’ve done,
look what You’ve done in me
You spoke Your truth into the lies I let my heart believe
Look at me now,
look how You made me new
The enemy did everything that he could do
Oh, but look what You’ve done
Suddenly all the shame is gone
I thought I was too broken, now I see
You were breaking new ground inside of me
Standing in Your presence, Lord
I can feel You digging all my roots up
I feel You healing all my wounds up
All I can say is, “Hallelujah”
Look what you’ve done!!!! 🙌🏻
