[quarter of the century]
In exactly 12 hours from now, I will turn quarter of a century old.
Some don’t like sharing their age, I don’t mind because every single day was given to me by God and I am happy to have lived this long.
As I got up to get ready for work in the morning, of all the things to ponder about in the shower, I thought about all the times when God saved me from what could’ve been a disaster. Almost drowning in a swamp, getting into a car accident, encountering a guy who would’ve done real bad things if only God wasn’t there and gave me wisdom to say that my grandma might worry that I am gone and that she’s got heart problems… It wasn’t technically a lie, but I didn’t really worry about that back then – grandma was the strongest woman I’ve ever known… Yet I said it (which to me is a proof that God exists, besides all other proofs, because I know that I would never really think to say that myself at that very moment), and thankfully he let it pass… I have managed to break a trolleybus’ side mirror with my head and not even get a concussion… There were other times I look back at and marvel at God’s amazing protection.
All this brings me to think: He’s got something planned for me – He kept me alive this long.
I can only imagine, the words of a song come to mind. Yet, to be honest, I cannot even imagine what He’s got planned.
Since before time began no one has ever imagined, no ear heard, no eye seen, a God like you who works for those who wait for him.
Isaiah 64:4, MSG
Amazing, He is.
