I’ve been afraid. Maybe even hesitant. Doubtful really. Nervous about September turning into October and my birth month arriving; therefore, my birthday getting even nearer. I’ve been scared because this time last year I thought I heard God. I thought He told me not to worry because I wouldn’t be single anymore. Yet here I am, single as ever. So, I was heartbroken to think I heard God wrong or that maybe He had forgotten or left me. I didn’t want my birthday to come up because I wasn’t ready to face the disappointment of an unanswered prayer becoming a reality.
Yet as I walked around Tokyo Disneysea… The beauty and detail of Ariel’s grotto… The reality that I was in Japan… All the amazing things that are happening and will happen in the month of October… God must have chuckled as He said, “It’s not as bad as thought it would be is it?”
Because the reality is, this month is going to be amazing. It’s a month I should be excitedly anticipating instead of dreadfully ignoring. It’s a month of travelling to new places, spending time with family, and most importantly, celebrating my birthday.
There was nothing I had to worry about. There
still is nothing I have to worry about.
