I am officially 25. How crazy is that? A quarter of a century has already gone by!
For some people this age freaked them out or made them feel old, but this birthday feels like the best one yet. I finally feel like I am the age that I feel and I am just truly enjoying life as a 20-something.
Just a couple of years ago I was so full of discontent, anxiety, fear, and sadness. This year has been so different from that way of life. I have changed so much internally that it’s crazy to look back and see how different life was. Some may look at my life and tribute this change in my life to my change in location, but it is so much more than that. My change is not due to anything I did, but what Christ has been doing in me. I have had sin be addressed in my life and facing it head-on. Acknowledging these things as sin has been the biggest factor for change. Many times people tell us that we are “born that way” and therefore we have a right to stay that way. This is so not true. Christ’s birth, death, and resurrection tells a different story of change and sanctification. I have found so much hope in that this year, and I hope you do too.
All that being said, this year has been incredible physically, emotionally, and spiritually. I can only pray that I continue to learn, grow, and change for the better in the coming years. I am so thankful.
