This is my last full day in my 20's...

Nicki just called me and said "Hey I just wanted to let you know that today is the last day you're going to be in your 20's. Have a nice day". That is CRAZY! I honestly feel like I'm still in my teens. (Ask my CEO, he'll tell you the same) The past few days I'd been really bummed out about what I had perceived as my failure of achieving the goals I had set out for myself. I had quite a few things I wanted to accomplish professionally and personally in my 20's, and quite a few of them were never realized. I got really depressed for a couple days. Nicki tried giving me the pep talk about "You've provided for your family, helped me get through college, been a great dad, ate some steak" but it didn't make me feel any better. At 30 years old, the fact that I'm sitting behind a desk fixing computers and taking phone calls all day isn't what I had envisioned for myself. Despite being the best dad that has ever lived and providing for my family, my place in the "rat race" really had me bummed out.

Until I was reminded that this life I'm living is NOT my life. It's God's. Everything I've been blessed with and given in terms of talents, awesome hair, incredible good looks, smarts, jobs, houses, cars, kids, wives (I have an entire separate life in Peru. I can't really talk about it) has been given to me from God, and I am where I am right now because God wants me here. So far beit from me to bitch and moan about where I'm at in the totem pole of life. Then this morning my bible study really drove everything home.

"Likewise there are many who try to find excuses in life because someone has taken advantage of them, has cheated them, has said something bad against them, someone has acted with prejudice against them, has abused them and this list can go on and on and on. But God has demonstrated with innumerable examples of peoples in history, that any set of circumstances can be overcome. People have been born poor and have become wealthy. People have been born wealthy and have lost it all. People have been abused and have risen above their heartache. People have been thrown into concentration camps and have survived. In fact there is most likely no set of circumstances that have not been made an example of in all of human history. So, in short, no matter who you are, no matter what your past, you do not have anything unique about you that cannot be handled by God. To presume so simply means that you are arrogant and naive about life and God."

Besides, 30's are the new 20's ya'all. Haven't you heard?
