I started this post months ago and finished it a few weeks before my 30th birthday. I celebrated the occasion in November, but held off on sharing my thoughts until today. Here’s what I would tell my 15-year-old self:
This morning’s “Meditation of My Heart”:
When I was single, I had a vision for my life and the woman I wanted to become and God was at the center.
Now that I am married, we have a JOINT vision for our marriage and the future we desire to build–with God at the center.
Having a vision is KEY–it keeps your motivated and helps you push through those hard days, but without God, that vision won’t work (or will only get you so far)! He causes seed to bear fruit in its season. If He’s not in it–it’s not something you should want.
This morning, I challenge you to ask yourself: “What is my vision?” and “Is God apart of it?”
Where there is no vision [no redemptive revelation of God], the people perish; but he who keeps the law [of God, which includes that of man]—blessed (happy, fortunate, and enviable) is he.
“If you follow my decrees and are careful to obey my commands, I will send you the seasonal rains. The land will then yield its crops, and the trees of the field will produce their fruit.
Seek the Kingdom of God above all else, and live righteously, and he will give you everything you need.
