I'm still questioning myself on this one, but yesterday I decided to get the chicken fajitas from the school cafeteria. End result: I hurled all night and now I lay helpless in my bed (talk about a day off). I'm like ok Lord, what is really going on?! When faced with adversity,I oftentimes ask the Lord what is it that he wants me to learn. Well, I've come to the realization that no matter how much I subtract from my age, I'm still getting older and my body is changing. I can't eat everything I ate when I was 19, I can't stay up past 12 and expect to function properly the next day, and when it rains something will ache.
As Christian women, we must take on this same mentality. We are maturing so we can't do the things we did at 21, go the places we went or say the things we said. There has to be an awakening within us that says change is inevitable. I cannot stay right here because all of the dynamics around me are changing, so must I. And this change is needed in order for us to lead healthy lifestyles and not to continually suffer the consequences of our immature actions. God has a greater plan for us all. We must embrace it by taking the necessary actions to grow beyond where we are.
I will leave you with this: Philippians 3:12-14
"Not that I have already obtained this or am already perfect, but I press on to make it my own, because Christ Jesus has made me his own. Brothers, I do not consider that I have made it my own. But one thing I do: forgetting what lies behind and straining forward to what lies ahead, I press on toward the goal for the prize of the upward call of God in Christ Jesus."
