Ola from your Tita! We’re now on the third month of the year (check out my 2018 faith goals and 2017 year-end review) and I do hope everything is going well for you. And as I turned 25 last month, I jotted down some lessons I learned [and words to live by] at this time of my life.
I love to travel. I always do, yet I’d be honest that it’s not on my priorities this year (or more) as I’m geared towards long term goals (naks! #AdultingIsReal guys) and delighted on what and where God is placing me that I don’t want to miss every opportunity to work, serve and be more productive in this season. But of course, I’d still love to visit new places – especially if it’s for free or super budget-friendly, why not!
My heart is filled with gladness and gratitude as I’m blessed with another year. It’s His grace that kept and keeps me going and life is just so better with JESUS – my Lord and Savior, my strength, shield, my Solid Rock and portion forever. I’m also thankful to every person I’ve shared life with – even to you who read this right now.
I don’t know what’s going to happen next but God certainly does. Whether it’s family, career, ministry and future relationship/husband, not mine but His will be done. God bless us all!
Next to Bible reading and journaling, I usually find myself carving out time for books. There are so many good books and grateful to friends who share with and give me such beautiful reads. I’m just finished with “The Purpose-Driven Life” by Rick Warren which is a really, really good devotional. Let me know if you want to borrow my copy! *wink*
While it’s sad to think that some girls and guys feel left out because they don’t have a significant other to spend [Valentine’s Day] with, it’s not too late to realize it’s not a “couple thing” at all. It’s a great time to express and experience love in all relationships – another special day to celebrate the people we love. And we love because He first loved us (1 John 4:19).
