BUT...her comment got me thinking a bit more. What exactly HAVE I accomplished? What do I WANT to have accomplished? Really....what are my life goals? And I think I discovered why I was ok with it all. Because I really just want to be more like Jesus today than I was yesterday... or the day before...or the day before that. I want my kids to know that I love Jesus and I want them to see that love overflowing into their lives.
I frequently get down about how I feel like I'm not making any progress in the areas of being more patient and loving. I'm not very much like the Proverbs 31 woman who
"Opens her mouth with wisdom"
and who has
"the teaching of kindness" on her tongue.
So....here's to another 30 years (Lord willing! lol) of growing in Him and walking "in a manner worthy of the Lord, fully pleasing to him, bearing fruit in every good work and increasing in the knowledge of God."
