One thing I find such joy in is celebrating with others. I used to think, I’ll never be happy if I don’t have kids or get married. My way of thinking was, I need a big beautiful home, a big beautiful husband and the pitter patter of little feet all over the place….. WRONG!
I spent the majority of my 20s running the race for marriage and children. I’m from the south, that’s what you do right? Apparently God had a different plan. When I turned 29 God entered my brain and did a bit of rewiring. I am so thankful because through prayer I began to slowly chip away at my bitterness and learn to find joy in life differently. The desire for myself faded and the desire for joy grew and grew.
There are so many wonderful things happening in my life right now. I have a beautiful nephew, my beautiful cousin just got engaged and my job is flourishing more and more everyday. I find joy in the small things. Jesus is my true love and he fills all the empty places in my heart.
The point of this blog is, if you find yourself wallowing in self pity and dead end roads. STOP! Life is too short to cling to what you thought your life was going to be. Better yet what people think your life should be. You are important! You have a purpose! The Bible says “For I know the plans I have for you, plans for good and not disaster, plans to give you hope and a future.” Jeremiah 29:11 Now that’s a cause for celebration!
