30ish

     For someone like me, reaching this milestone is my biggest achievement so far. I could still not believe how I have reached this far. Well, there is the only one answer to it. I AM BLESSED. I AM BLESSED by my Almighty Father.
    Turning thirty might have been hard to imagine, but it is something that someone should not miss out. If I go down the memory lane there would be not enough room for how many times I fell and made myself deeply wounded. There are countless times of misery and cliffhanger moments. Whirlwind emotions or even desperate seasons. However, no matter how complicated my life was, the certainty that I could eventually surpass everything was always in my heart. I might have reached the verge of giving up, yet at the end of every day, I would still get myself being salvaged by the promises of God that He has instilled in my heart. I could just rely on Him each time I go though thick and thorns.
    Like the colorful sunset, those thirty years had its own spectrum of colorful learning and experiences. In fact most of those times I have been grateful. Grateful to all the favors and blessings that God has provided in my life, that despite how lacking I have been, He would always fill me with His might , love and grace. Now, as I embark this new mileage, I can only say that I would still anchor my life to God. Whatever He has pre-planned for me in the journey, I will lift and let everything to Him. The next incoming years might be uncertain, yet I know I have no time to complain because my faith and commitment to Him is certain. The world has strained me so bad. This time I will try my hardest not to listen to its demands.
   To my family whom I care and love so much, I pray  to God that His perfect and beautiful time will come for them to commit themselves wholly to His sovereignty in their lives.

   To myself, yes it will be hard for sure. Do not be blinded by the hardship. Always speak your heart out and stand firmly and boldly according to God's will in your life. Be patient.The standards of this world doesn't define the plan of God for you. Be more understanding. Live simply for God's glory. Live the way that glorifies His Name. Always seek His Word and His Will. Aim higher for your life as it is to the Lord. Most especially aim to inspire others by living like Jesus. Let them see Jesus in you and your life. Forgive. Love. Love. Love.
    To all 30 years old: to be thirty is not something to be anxious about.

 Do not conform to the pattern of this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind. Then you will be able to test and approve what God’s will is—his good, pleasing and perfect will.Romans 12:2 New International Version (NIV)

   Never let the world's standards define who you are and you will be. It could be in your career or relationship status.  If you're still single, take it as an opportunity to use your freedom to serve God. Remember family life is a juggler's life. It is as if you juggle too many balls at the same time. So, before you get yourself into that irreversible commitment and as long as you still can, make it as the most meaningful out of your single and blessed life. Living the life is not as easy as flipping the pages of a book. It's a deep dive into the unknown. Remember that we are winning and losing as we live every single day of our lives. Embrace the process. Prioritize what has to be in  front and center. Lay down all those areas of your life on God's altar. Make a commitment with Him. Surrender everything to Him. Seek His counsel and let God be your North Star. As the world changes around you let God be the constant that you can depend on in your life. Let God decide and let His purpose and will be accomplished in your life. If He answers all those desires in your heart, "Praise God!" If He doesn't, remain joyful because His love for you remains and He is always there for you. Never grow weary. Use your prime to focus on the assignment that God has given you. Anyway, if those desires are for you, He will definitely bring you to completion and victory. When His beautiful time for your life unfolds, it will be perfect. 

“But blessed is the one who trusts in the Lord,
whose confidence is in him.
They will be like a tree planted by the water
that sends out its roots by the stream.
It does not fear when heat comes;
its leaves are always green.
It has no worries in a year of drought
and never fails to bear fruit.”


Trust in the Lord with all your heart
and lean not on your own understanding;
in all your ways submit to him,
and he will make your paths straight.
