Today is my birthday. To God be all the glory! This is how @66 looks like. When I was young this age looked like an eternity. I had no imagination for myself, of how I will be and what will I do at 66. But here I am, stepping into the mystery called ‘old age’. Like with any age, there are challenges and there are blessings. I lost some of my physical strength but I gained much more patience and wisdom! My heart is now established! Heaven is sure! I lost my fears, I abandoned my desire to prove something to any man! I killed all my inferiority complexes concerning my looks. I have stopped competing with people for positions or visibility credits! By the grace of God, I am who God made me to be! I love God’s creation and art work in me!
As a woman of God, wife, mother, grandmother and pastor, I love who God made me to be! I am God’s work, beautifully made for His glory! I used to be shy in public, but not anymore! This is my secret: I am filled to overflow with the Holy Spirit, the Spirit of Truth, the Spirit of Resurrection Power that scatters cages of limitations and graves of shame. I am a wonder to myself! Praise the Lord! Seasons come and seasons go but God never changes! The love and the presence of Jesus Christ, my Savior, is more precious to me as I get older. And that is all that matter! Thank you all for your prayers and well wishes. God bless you all!
