20 to 20.

Processed with VSCOcam with b5 preset

In less than twenty days I’ll be losing my coveted teenager title, and it’s something I’m completely dreading. I’ve loved being nineteen more than any other age I’ve experienced. At nineteen I traveled the world, I followed God’s call in my life, and I had a memorable time.

From Spain to France to England to Hawaii to the Congo, I had my fair share of catching flights and receiving passport stamps. There isn’t anything I would trade that could top my experience seeing the world. Now I understand traveling won’t end when nineteen ends- and quite frankly traveling from here is only going to happen more and more- but nineteen was a year of traveling firsts. The first time I flew to Europe, the first time I saw the Eiffel Tower, the first time I explored the streets of London, the first time I lived in Hawaii, the first time I stepped foot on Africa. All firsts that in one way or another, big or small, changed my life. Firsts that I’m infinitely proud of.

Nineteen was also a year where I said yes to God and no to me. I said over and over “God I want more of you!”, and I sought after Him more and more. For a whole summer I invested my life to full time ministry. Ministry is something I would never have seen myself doing, but now I’m here and I’m loving it. I love teaching people about God and playing an active role in the church congregation. In addition to partaking in ministry, I served with all I could give. I served in the Democratic Republic of the Congo. I served the ones who had far less then me but loved infinitely more than me. During my three week LoveWorks trip I learned how to worship, how to love, and how to be happy. I’m proud I spent nineteen serving God.

It has been a memorable year to say the least. A year I’m proud of. A year I want to brag about. A year I would relive over and over again. In less than twenty days I turn twenty, and I’m don’t quite know how I feel about that.
