Purpose: Better Than Yesterday

When I was younger, I imagined being married with kids by the age of 28. My plan was simple: find love, get married, and have a few babies. I can remember day dreaming about how my life would be-- getting up before my husband and kids to pack lunches and cook breakfast. Holding down the household with a job that would allow me to spend most of my time catering to my family. While my husband, head of the household, would protect the house and make sure that we had all we needed. At the time of imagining how my life would be, I didn’t realize how difficult it would be to make my plan a reality. My plan was flawed and missed a key component. No where in my dreams did I think of the role that God would play in my life. It wasn’t even on my radar. Little did I know, God had a different path for me. He looked at my detailed plan and thought, how cute, she thinks she is in control. 

My reality is somewhat different. At the age of 33 I am single (no potential husband in sight), and no children. I wake up just in time to make it to work a little late. I make breakfast to go and sometimes pack my lunch for the week on Sundays. I have family and friends that I adore and a job that I am super passionate about. I own a condo and have enough money to do SOME of the things that I enjoy, but on a budget (that I never follow). I am blessed...I’ve accepted my season and can say that I am at peace with where I am in life. I am a woman that is constantly evolving, learning, and wanting to be a better person. There are some key differences with my life and where I thought I would be at this age. However, the most significant difference is that I now understand that I am not in control and that the path I am on is by design. Everything that has happened, has happened FOR me and not TO me. By no means have I had a rough life. I am fortunate to have a loving, supportive, fun, and amazing family. A family that also includes my circle of friends who I adore. But we all have a story to tell. We all have a journey. 

The purpose of this blog is to document my growing in Christ. My ever evolving walk with God and the challenges I face as I still struggle with the wants of my flesh VS God’s Will. This is my journey and I share it because…I can and desire to glorify God. Maybe you will find that by reading this it will move you to strengthen or create a relationship with God. Maybe no one will read it, and that’s okay too. However, I must do my part. I am in NO WAY an expert on religion, I just recently learned the true significance of Jesus and the amazing gift that he is. I’m not embarrassed that I am so immature in my walk, this is my beginning. The point is I now know, so with that information alone, I am better than I was yesterday.
