It’s my 20th birthday today!
Yikes! Two full decades.
I remember reading people’s blog posts about their 20th and I was always like, ‘woah, so mature – so old – wow!’ And now that’s me. Hm.
I would also like to note that I TOOK A DECENT SELFIE – first accomplishment of my twenties!
I’m still working out if I feel older or not!
Part of me does,
but I think that’s also because I’ve been learning to trust how God’s made me,
And not worry about the expectations of other people.
It doesn’t matter what they think of me – I can’t please everybody!
Rather, in Christ, I am free to be myself no matter what that looks like.
I am free to dress the way I like
Wear makeup the way I like
Be my kind of crazy
Like the things I like
Have the hobbies that catch my interest
Be as fit as I deem
Spend my money on the things that catch my fancy
Make my own decisions
Try new things.
It extends to the smallest things, like the food I like best
And the food I detest.
I can have my opinions
And disagree with others’.
There are things that are nonnegotiable to God,
But inside of that
There is still a lot of colouring in to do!
On the flip side,
I know I’m not perfect yet.
I still grapple with God’s love.
I don’t understand faith.
I get shy and frazzled and selfish and proud.
I don’t always think the things I should.
But thank you God that you accept me the way I am!
So here’s to another twenty years,
With God leading the way!
