"I remember the days of old;
I meditate on all that you have done;
I ponder the work of your hands."
Today I turn 24 years old and I can hardly believe it. So much has happened in those 24 years that I could spend all day reflecting on it, but even though I've been alive for 24 years, I've only been living for 3.
It all means nothing without Jesus.
In the 3 years that I've known Him, I've learned and grown more than the previous 21 years combined. When I consider the work he's done in me, how through everything he has lead me to this point, I am amazed. In a certain sense I believe in free will, but I also believe in destiny. Everything that's happened in my life has happened so that I might know Christ. The same is true for everyone.
Now every new day is an adventure. Everyday there is something new to learn or discover or experience and I am just happy to be able to enjoy it while I last. Truly if not for Christ's suffering I would have no freedom to live and love life.
So here I am free to do whatever I love, but the only thing I could ever want to do is love Christ. How could I not? He has never betrayed me!
So here's to one more year serving in Christ!
