Thoughts on my birthday

I celebrated my birthday last month and I promise as I get older I feel younger! The years are going by but I've never felt more alive and expectant for the good days that I know are so soon ahead. 

This year I'm grateful for all that God has planned. 

Many people look at my life and don't see much; nothing grand. But I am a girl with a lot hopes and dreams. I've been this way since I was a little girl, more so when I became a Christian. I've always believed that I can do great things, things that matter. That belief and faith comes from God and I definitely don't believe that my hope is in vain.

I always say, you don't judge someone that's in the 'process' of life. You never know what can happen. If you do have to judge, do that when the person's dead and gone. And even still you don't know if they fulfilled what they were put on this earth for. God can redeem all things.

I read about persons in the Bible like Joseph, David and Abraham, to name a few, that had to wait at least a decade and more to see the fulfilment of their dreams and what they were trusting God for. So I’m thinking I'm in good company.

I’ve had days where it seems easier to just give up; stop with all the hoping and believing that’s been going on for years and years. But somehow I find that extra strength to think, “maybe, just maybe if I keep hoping…” I’ve come to realise that it’s the grace of God that gives us that extra teeny push to keep going; to keep believing. And when we take hold of that little extra help it’s like a floodgate opens and a whole lot of strength is poured on you. Maybe that’s what kept these ladies and gents in the Bible going and believing and trusting.

As the years go by it’s easier to think that “this is it”, life wouldn’t get better than this, but with God it’s the total opposite! You have this confidence that there are better days ahead; you haven’t dreamt your greatest dream yet, and you haven’t seen your greatest miracle yet.

I have been waiting patiently and trying my best to be hopeful (it can be a struggle) and obedient and I think that's a great recipe for God to open some great doors!

So keep dreaming dreamer, it keeps hope alive!
