I’m 36 years old, as of today. I have a feeling this year will be challenging and full of growth, in a really good way. It’s so easy to get lured into comfort and the convenience of things in our modern world. So sometimes, we have to allow ourselves to be uncomfortable, and create challenges for ourselves to help us stay sharp and awake. (Of course, God will also take us through those uncomfortable times as a way of refining us, as well.) •
I know for sure, I DO NOT want to get lulled to sleep by allowing myself to get too comfortable.
Sometimes I run outside barefoot, in a tank top, just so I feel the cold and to not let myself get too soft. Which of course, isn’t what I mean at all, but it’s a picture of what I have to do to stay awake and alive!
Maybe it’s the one year older thing, or the fact that I’m on the other side of 35, but holy smokes, if it isn’t time to get to work making a difference in the world. This is not the light hearted birthday post I had imagined, but it just flowed out there.🤷🏽♀️ So, here’s to 36, growth, feeling- no *being* alive, and pressing further in to what God has for me.💫
