Me At 30



When I was a little girl, I always daydreamed about becoming a woman. I envisioned everything from want kind of career woman I’d be to what kind of man I’d marry, but I never planned on turning 30. It just never dawned on me, I guess. But, now that it’s officially here, I’m excited. Don’t get me wrong, though. The thought of turning 30 was a tough pill to swallow at first, but the more I spend time with God, the more I realize I have so much to look forward to.

I read the post I wrote last year on my birthday, and within it I shared my aspirations for spiritual growth:

You should be able to say that you’re a better version of yourself this year than you were last year. And, if you honestly don’t see where you’ve grown, use your birthday as a time to set goals and make new confessions. Me, personally, I can definitely see where I’ve grown, but I want to grow more in Love this year (I want to be more patient). I want to downsize pride (YES Lord). I want to give more tithes & offering this year than I did last year. I want to step up my prayer life, and grow closer to God. I want to get better at knowing His voice. And, the list goes on.

God has helped me grow in every area I mentioned last year. Thanks to Him, I’ve matured more in Love, especially patience. My humility became stronger as pride became weaker. I got a new job, which paid more and I was able to give more than I gave the year before. My prayer time increased drastically, and the Holy Spirit’s voice became louder & more distinct.

So, what are my goals for this year? So glad you asked! This year I want more of Him. I want to walk even stronger in my calling. Something I’ve been confessing for the past few months is, “Like Jesus, I believe my ministry will ignite at 30.” When I say “ministry,” I mean helping others (not planning on starting a church. LoL)…I don’t know everything that God has planned for my life, but I want to become so close to Him that He considers me a confidant (*Psalms 25:14 & *John 15:15). I want Him to be able to trust me with His plans, so my prayer is that He prepares me.

This year, I just want Him to pour more into me so I can pour more out…**G.I.G.**


*Psalm 25:14 AMP – The secret [of the sweet, satisfying companionship] of the Lord have they who fear (revere and worship) Him, and He will show them His covenant and reveal to them its [deep, inner] meaning.

*John 15:15 MSG – I’m no longer calling you servants because servants don’t understand what their master is thinking and planning. No, I’ve named you friends because I’ve let you in on everything I’ve heard from the Father.


P.S. – Here’s a cute song that I absolutely adore! Love the lyrics, the vocalist, the music, everything! I hope you enjoy it…oh, and I’ll be sharing pics & details on what I did for my b’day in the next day or two! So, stay tuned!
