So I just turned 26. A quarter of my life’s gone by. And as I’ve just entered the silent passage of the late twenties that no one really talks about, I wanted to take this time to write down some lessons I’ve learned in the first quarter of my life. So, in no particular order, here are 25 big and small one’s.
There I was in 2012. A new Christian wanting to know more about what being a Christian even really meant. Wanting to know what I was really getting into, not based on what they told me growing up, or what someone told me recently. I had this one clue though: The person who shared about Jesus to me encouraged me to read the Bible, God’s Word, everyday. Everyday???? Could I even do it?
How did you spend your Valentine’s day?
I won’t lie to you. It wasn’t always easy being single on Valentine’s day. And like many single people, I still yearn to experience what they dub as ‘romance’ one day.
Which begs this question: In the midst of a culture that praises things such as relationship goals, what’s there for a single person to do during occasions like Valentine’s?
As I stood at the wake, I wondered, from a family breakthrough to a family member’s funeral—who would’ve thought that this would be how our January would turn out?
And just like that, half of January is already over. But I believe it’s still not too late to start the year—or the remaining days of the year—right.
January always brings for me a sniff of fresh hope. It’s the month where people usually planning out the year, coupled with writing down their goals for the year. I wrote about pre-planning a couple of weeks ago, followed by how to start the year with faith goals too.
But, try as we might, our year never really turns out the way we thought they would, does it? We plan and plan and plan, yet some things are just really out of our control. In cases like these, what do we do?
