21

So today I turned 21. 



Where has time gone? 

Had such a chill birthday working all day and spending the evening with my family and Mark's family. It was so nice to be surrounded by people who truly love me and would do anything for me and for that reason alone I am so blessed. 

I get to do a lot of things when I'm 21 years old. For starters I get a husband, I move out to my own place, I get a degree and I get to start the working world. I love change and I am excited to see where God wants me. There is a lot of unknowns- where the heck am I going to work? How are we going to pay the bills every month etc- but there is also so much beauty in unknowns and that is what I'm choosing to focus on. 

I will be at a place in my life where the next chapter is not written- it's a blank page. What a beautiful place that is for the Lord to totally write my story. Unknowns restrict me from doing and gives me the opportunity to let God tell my story. As scary as it is I want to have the faith to know that He will place me right where He wants me and that is always enough. This fall season there will be lots of "knowns" but I want God to still write this year. I want each day to glorify Him and I want every action to reflect His name and His name alone. O how I screw that up all the time but God has been teaching me I need to act that He is enough and not just say it or type it on a blog (even when my heart is in the right place). Envy usually gets in the way of showing God He is enough in my life but I'll expand on that in another blog. 

I want this year to scream God. That's it. That's the reason I'm on this earth. There are too many hurting people who need to know there is a God who loves them for me to focus on my plans. This next season is going to be chaos but I know that my day isn't worth doing if God isn't the center. 

I can't wait to blog when I'm 22 and look back at this year and see all the incredible and difficult lessons  God has taught me and journeyed with me on. Reflecting tonight, God has done so much in my heart this past year & I want to go deeper this year. I want the Lord to lead me to waters where I've never been and I know He will.

I am so blessed to be 21 and so excited to this next year! 

Here's to the unknowns and knowing we serve an all knowing God.
