It makes no sense but this is Grace! I know you’re with me in this place.Β 

Today i turn 25, major age…yap i know, and all that is on my mind is how much time i have wasted messing up, how grateful i am to God for sticking with me through it all and what the next couple of years has in store for me. This is a time to step back and take stock of the overflow of blessings from heaven into my life.πŸ˜ƒ I have so much to be thankful for, especially this year.

I love to have a plan, but lately…well rather this year(2016), i have learned to stop trying to plan my life and let God plan for me. It takes a lot to get to this stage, and the number one achievement i am most proud of after 25 years on this earth is my ability to do that.

Ideally, at this point in my life, i would have loved to; have completed my masters degree…anticipating starting my phD, be successfully working in an engineering firm in my very first apartment, be in a stable relationship with hopes of getting married in a year or two, but guess what? I am still working on finishing my undergraduate degree, no job yet(well, a couple of really good internships), parents still supporting with my current apartment, and no man!..LOL.

I would have loved to celebrate my 25th birthday with friends and loved ones, possibly get a cake for the secondΒ time in my life, take a trip to some relaxing island, and chill with lots of wine and champagne πŸ™‚ , but aah well, life happens.

What you probably do not know is that, for my 25th birthday this year, all i wanted to do was to give back to God for all He has done for me, even though that would not have been as close enough. In doing that, i had planned to join my church to go on a mission trip to SouthEast Asia to reach out to many and share the true meaning of Christmas to many others. Basically Christ over all, this Christmas. But at the eleventh hour that plan came crumbling down…very disheartening, yep i cried, and to be honest, i didn’t understand it at all. But i was reminded of His words, “Isaiah 55:8-9, ESV For my thoughts are not your thoughts, neither are your ways my ways, declares the LORD. For as the heavens are higher than the earth, so are my ways higher than your ways and my thoughts than your thoughts.”……..“Proverbs 3:5-6, ESV Trust in the LORD with all your heart, and do not lean on your own understanding. In all your ways acknowledge him, and he will make straight your paths.” andΒ “Psalm 94:19 NLT When doubts filled my mind, your comfort gave me renewed hope and cheer.”Β and these words comforted me and calmed me down.

What i am trying to say is a very big thank you to God for this year. He has seen me through very deep waters. I am very grateful for the many hoops i have jumped through because i know they are in line to help me fulfill my destiny. Just in this year, i have met so many wonderful people. People i believe were carefully placed in my life to help shape me up at various points. These angels(as i like to call them) have helped make me the person i am. My heart is overflowing with love because i am grateful to you all for loving me, and ultimately to God for loving me unconditionally.

YOU BRING OUT THE BEST IN ME,LORD AND THAT’s WHY I’M NOT LETTING YOU GO. SO THANK YOU. THANK YOU FOR THIS AMAZING MILESTONE. HAPPY BIRTHDAY TO ME!Β πŸ˜ƒπŸ˜ƒπŸ˜ƒ

  2. A very open and honest post! We do not know right away what the Lord has planned for us. That is why we continue in the good works of the spirit of faith and look for the opportunities He may offer us. He may be getting you ready through your “trials” for some very rewarding work…you just don’t know. But stay encouraged and pray to Him for guidance. Give Him praise always, for His love for us is unmatched. He will make sure you have the things which are the best for you…just be faithful. Trials develop perseverance, stay with God!

      1. It is my pleasure. Just be “still” and endure the trials. Let God do what He needs to in your life. Fight through the challenges knowing you will be better for it all…
