I feel like so many of my posts have to do with time and how I spend it and how I should spend it. But it seems to be working so why change it?

peytonThe good news is: TOMORROW (Oct. 30) IS MY BIRTHDAY!!!

I’m so excited. I love birthdays. And mine is absolutely on the best day ever. The weather is great, temperature wise, and the very next day I get to eat a ton of candy and no one can say anything.

So I’ll be 20 years old. That’s two decades (hence the title). And that seems like such a long time. Two decades. But I still feel so young. How could 20 years have gone by so quickly? It doesn’t logically make any sense. And as I sit writing this post, excited about tomorrow, there’s a bitter hint mixed in with this sweetness.

I’ll officially be done with my teenage years in just a few short hours. Did I spend my time as a teenager wisely? Was Jesus’ love for me evident in the way I talked and acted towards others? These past 7 years I’ve had the best position to talk to other teenagers about Jesus and His love for me and for everyone else. Did I take advantage of that enough?

Even if I can consider my teenage years as fruitful, they’re done. And the question I now need to ask myself is “What next?” I’m entering into a new decade and a new age. So how will I spend the next period of my life?

Overall, I am so thankful to God that He’s given me these 19 years of life. And I’m looking forward to spending my 20’s as one of His “good and faithful servants.”
