34 isn’t really a milestone birthday but in this time we are living in, every birthday you reach is a milestone. As I reflect on this day, My Birthday I am grateful for all God has done. He just gave this to me “More in store @ 34!“
Even at a young age (34 is not old) I have been tried in the fire. I have been thru sickness, loss, frustration, anger, jealousy, more loss…I just have been thru, but these last couple of years God has pulled me thru to the other side and I am coming out as pure Gold. My latter will be greater.
He has taught me plenty and he is still teaching me. I have learned patience, humility, steadfastness and long-suffering. I mean look what all God has blessed me with, not one but two degrees, a Bachelors and a Masters. I am a wife to the same man for 11 years on 9/9/17. Two handsome sons, and the doctor told me that I wouldn’t conceive (Man, if I could just visit that doctor now). And a career in my field at one of the largest health systems in MI. Please believe, I am not bragging, I’m just overwhelmingly grateful.
And now God is saying I have more in store. A closer walk and relationship with him. He wants to use me as a vessel to spread his word. He is stirring up a gift in me that I have tried to keep buried. More in store, he has more in store.
Joel 2:25 – 29 AMP
25 And I will compensate you for the years
That the swarming locust has eaten,
The creeping locust, the stripping locust, and the gnawing locust—
My great army which I sent among you.
26 “You will have plenty to eat and be satisfied
And praise the name of the Lord your God
Who has dealt wondrously with you;
And My people shall never be put to shame.
27 “And you shall know [without any doubt] that I am in the midst of Israel [to protect and bless you],
And that I am the Lord your God,
And there is no other;
My people will never be put to shame.
The Promise of the Spirit
28 “It shall come about after this
That I shall pour out My Spirit on all mankind;
And your sons and your daughters will prophesy,
Your old men will dream dreams,
Your young men will see visions.
29 “Even on the male and female servants
I will pour out My Spirit in those days.
