Today I turn 25. A quarter-century. It almost seems like 25 is the marker for being “older.” And I mean that at 25, you’re supposed to have your career figured out and be well on your way to making yourself the President of some Fortune 500 company. I dunno. That always seems the stereotype of what is expected of people my age.
I am the complete opposite of that right now. I don’t have a ton of career aspirations and I have just started “real” school this last year. All I really know is that I enjoy leading worship and that I want to do that for as long as I can. We’ll see where that takes me.
My ultimate goal in the end is to be a follower of Christ in wherever He leads me. If that means turning left when the world says right, I’ll turn left. If that means I drop school right now and go live in Africa, I will. I want to be caught in the center of God’s will, chasing after those things that make Him smile.
I guess you could say that’s my birthday wish (I know I’m not supposed to tell ;)) but that is the desire of my heart; to chase after the desires of His heart. I hope I can get there some day. I need to work harder at it. More discipline to keep focused on Him and His desires. More time spent in prayer and in the Word… Lots of changes I need to make in my life. I pray for the discipline to be the disciple I want to be.
So here’s to 25 years of life, and to hoping I have another 85 left in me :p
