It probably comes as no surprise to those who know me best that I really like to be prepared. I’ve learned in the course of my life that I function with excellence when I am prepared. I crave being able to be thoughtful and intentional with every task and endeavor that I undertake. You may remember my post just a few short weeks ago where I outlined my plan to fast from Facebook, partially in preparation for tomorrow. I wrote:
I feel like 25 marks the beginning of a new era. I really want to go into year 25 intentionally. I want to have a list of things I want to say I am or have done by 30. I really think I need to take a break from vegging out in order to get a clearer grasp on what that means and where I think God is calling me to with the next quarter century of my life.
When I’m blind to my way, There Your Spirit will pray; As You open my eyes to the work of Your hand,
Oceans will part; nations come, At the whisper of Your call. Hope will rise; glory shown. In my life, Your will be done.
Present suffering may pass, Lord, Your mercy will last; As You open my eyes to the work of Your hand. And my heart will find praise, I’ll delight in Your way, As You open my eyes to the work of Your hand.
