Happy Birthday: The End of an Era

Every birthday since I started my blog, I try to make a post. This year, I almost gave up on this tradition because I was so overwhelmed. However, in the midst of all the activities, I am constantly reminded that growing old is a gift and one that I never want to take for granted.

I remember as a wide-eyed 9-year-old in JSS 1, I had a Principal that made it a point of duty to address us every morning, and at the end of his speech, he would emphasise Psalm 90:12

“So teach us to number our days, That we may apply our hearts unto wisdom”.

Today more than every other day, I am overwhelmed by God’s favour. I’d randomly catch myself crying.

This year God said she wants me to go down memory lane, and not once has He failed. Not that I have not felt disappointed, but On His own side of the bargain, He doesn’t fail.

So this year, God says Be still,

Don’t be anxious; I am only good Always.

As you grow older, you want to be more conservative, but God is telling me this year to open up and free myself so that He can work in me and through me.

With God, it’s hard truth—truth that exposes exactly who we are—and it’s ridiculous grace—grace that meets us right where we are.

When God tells you something, you can go to sleep, take His word to the bank.

So in this new year, It is less stress and more trusting God.

Today, I am grateful for the wisdom and the grace to forgive the people that hurt me.

My major prayer for this new year is to eat and not add weight.

Happy birthday to the apple of God’s eyes.

This year owes me nothing.
