And the turning thirty w1ne happened!

A lot can happened in 1 year. Last year I entered my Thirties aka #Classy360 and today (Jan 28, 2019) I turned 31! It safe to say I’m no where NEAR where I thought I would be.

My life just isn’t going according to my plans. I’m truly learning what it means ‘God orders my steps’. This statement is so loaded. The God of this universe is ordering my steps and majority of the time, I am not consulted, forewarned/told about that next step or what’s to come. I have no idea what I thought walking by faith was but I definitely didn’t think it was this. What I see happening and think that I could predict the outcome or next step is going to be is usually not my next step, this has actually caused frustration in my life. Although sometimes frustrations come with ‘walking by faith’ my trust in God is being strengthened because I have no idea what the next step is. And sometimes even if I know the next step, I don’t know how to take the step. It’s almost like I become a baby learning how to walk as I enter each season and God says, ‘Come on, you can do it!’

So here I grow again I stumbling into the next season totally trusting God’s word that I can do it. It’s not like I can do it on my own, definitely learning this by trial and error🤦🏾‍♀️🤦🏾‍♀️🤦🏾‍♀️. I’m learning that the doubt I have, was in myself and I’m learning to constantly remind myself that I can do ALL things through Christ who strengthens me! I can do this. Whatever God has called me in and through, I can do this!

Alright so here’s a one year update:

Side note: My birthday theme this year is #thirtyw1ne. I totally planned this wine tour in Texas and those plans ceased to coming to pass so I dipped off to Guatemala to celebrate entering in a new year of another age for me. The first well known and documented miracle that Jesus did, was turning water into wine. I’m learning to give God what I got and watch Him turn water into wine in my own life. Witnessing this first hand has been quite magnificent. At the time Jesus turned water into wine, the disciples didn’t ask for a miracle because they barely knew Jesus, they didn’t know what He was capable of but Jesus’ Earthly Mama- Mary knew Him. She informed Jesus of a problem and commanded the wedding servants to do as he says! Sometimes we may know that God can do it and other times the thought that God can do it never crosses our mind. I’m so thankfully God performs miracles in my life whether I think to ask for them or not!💯

I’m so very thankful that God knows the plans He has for us. He knows the path He has strategically chosen for our each of our Life. I’m so excited about my future because I know my God will keep me. He has kept me so far and I’m so blessed by this keeping. So 🥂’s to allowing God to take the lead and being willing to and actually walking in the steps God has ordered! 💋 #thirtyw1ne here I come!
