I remember being a kid and thinking about the future Sydnie. I remember thinking about what life would be like to be in my twenties and beyond. I didn’t go too far into it because I really couldn’t imagine that far. To sum it up, I couldn’t really imagine my life beyond a certain point.
- I thought about graduating from college.
- I thought about getting married some day.
- I thought about having a “good job.”
- I kind of thought about having kids.
- I kind of, even less, thought about owning a home.
That was the extent of my thoughts really about what my life could entail. To be honest, that’s really the main picture you get from the world’s perspective as someone who is successful with life. You go to college, graduate, get a job, and live life… or rather let life happen to you with no major purpose driven direction.
At this point in my life, at 25, I’ve reached those thoughts I could imagine and so I’m at an interesting place… a crossroad. A place where I’m forced to look further. A place where I’m forced to expand the borders I unknowingly placed on my mind. A place where I’m challenged to look to what’s next, without neglecting the testimony of my present.
If it wasn’t for Christ, I probably would have no idea and would most likely be wandering on a direction-less path. But I’m encouraged and excited because I have access to greater in Christ. We have the ability to take our faith to the next level. We have the ability to do greater works, and manifest greater glory in our lives! I’m thankful because, when my limits run out God’s don’t. He has had a plan for us since the beginning. He has good things for us, that are beyond what we could ever have imagined.
So cheers to not having everything figured out because that’s ok. Its ok because, I’m in God’s hands, the best place to be! Having no limits, is when you really can grow.
