Today I enter the last year of my 20’s, and I have a variety of words circulating my heart. I’m sharing them here as a way to celebrate and reflect on another year of life with God and my people.
The most profound gift I can give the people I’m called to serve is to honestly, humbly and regularly practice exposing the false stories I carry and replacing them with a narrative of the God Jesus knows. Emily P. Freeman
I am as hungry as I have ever been for God.
I am as humbled as I have ever been that I get God at all.
I am as stuck as I have ever been with the state of my physical exercise. With my recent neck injury diagnosis, running was taken off the table for me, and I have yet to find something I enjoy and that motivates me like running did.
I am as delighted as I have ever been with the creative opportunities God has given me this year.
I am as dependent as I have ever been on the Holy Spirit to help me in any and every moment of my wife, mom, friend and daughter life.
I have friendships as deep as I have ever had them and they are truly a gift.
I long for simplicity as much as I ever have and continue taking small steps forward in it.
The greatest joys of my life are Christ and my family, biological and spiritual. I hope to spend the last year of this decade pursuing, treasuring and being changed by them.
