Two days ago on September 23, 2015, I turned 22 years old. I must admit the honest truth. God has truly been blessing me. I’ve had my days of ups and downs, but I thank God for Jesus. With him by my side, I feel royal, powerful, and extremely wise. I can say this because my entire life is in God’s hand. That is why I trust in the Lord ALL the time. When I awake in the morning to go to work or school, I give God all the praise. If it wasn’t for God in my life, I’d be lost in this wicked world. I would be partying every night, drinking, and doing who-knows-what just to feel like I’m somebody. But I already know that I am somebody. Actually, I was born and raised in Christ so I am very sure that I am somebody. I have a purpose and that is to follow my dreams, make a difference in this world and those around me, and spread the Word of God.
I thank God for my number 1 support team, my family. They have been pushing me onward my entire life. Their encouragement keeps me sane as well as closer with Jesus. I love my family. Not too many people can say that today with their whole hearts. It is sad, but in God, love is victory. On my birthday my favorite scripture popped up at least six times throughout the day. I see it as a sign from God that I am doing the right thing with my life. I may not be a well-rounded social person or look and act like my peers, but I must remember that when you have Jesus you will always be different. God’s spirit dwells in me and I am thankful, grateful for it. Because at the end of this world, I know where I will be. I know my end destination is eternal life. I will keep holding on, because my life is Jesus Christ. So I want to thank him for blessing me with his loving mercy to live through another year.
