It’s my 24th birthday! And it’s also the first day of Resident Director training for me.
So as I gear up for a new year of life and a new school year, here’s a list of a few things I’m grateful for:
1) A family who raised me well and shielded me from certain things. I may have thought they were ‘overproctective’ then but I’ve learned to appreciate it.
2) Friends who not only pat me on the back but who also kick me in the butt when I need it. As I get older, I appreciate these types of friendships more and more.
3) The Lord giving me a genuine passion for His Word. I think sometimes I try to live the Christian life without studying His Word. It never worked.
4) A confidence that comes from my identity in Christ. I am not who people think I should be. I am following His voice alone and His love gives me security.
It may not be your birthday but as the summer winds down, what are you grateful for?
