I feel like this is a question that a lot of young adults my age (I am almost 22) ask themselves all of the time. “When will my life finally start?” We sit around looking at our life, wanting so badly for the next phase to start so that we can be happy and experience REAL life. It looks different for everyone. For me, it is getting married and having a family with the man God has picked for me. It is easy for me to feel like I am not able to truly experience life without being a wife or a mother. I think to myself that if I was married, with a husband and child(ren) to care for I would truly experience life and the utmost joy.
Wow! God has really been working in me these past couple of weeks. God has been showing me that my thinking is false! I do not have to wait for my life to start while I am waiting for my husband to come sweep me off my feet. I can live TODAY! Glorifying God in all that I do, serving Him, experiencing life with Him and with people (believers and non-believers). Waiting for tomorrow is doing nothing for my soul. Experiencing God, serving God, and LIVING today is the ultimate sense of joy, granting me the ultimate tomorrow. Eternity in heaven with the Lord! The one I am becoming to know so well.
