They say that with age comes wisdom and last month I just turned 25. 25! Can you believe that? It’s like I’m no longer 24, but seriously, when I realized that I’m already 25 it just dawned on me that I have to leave my childish ways behind. Well maybe not all, but I believe that it’s a sign that I should take more responsibilities and act more maturely than before. Twenty-five, that means that I’m living on silver years. When you’re 25 there’s a lot of things that’s expected of you, and I think that especially with the field that I am going to go into, a lot will definitely be expected of me (a scary thought if I imagine the responsibility involved).
With all those things being said, I choose to accept the responsibilities and the tasks that will be laid before me. The funny thing is that God is really the one who’s setting me up for this. Every month, I start with a new book in the bible and what I’ll do is just focus on that book for a whole month for my quiet time. I usually do a random sampling of the bible that I’m about to read and viola, guess what book God gave me: Proverbs. Now that I’ve mentioned it, with the many times I’ve done that random sampling of books to read, the book that comes out almost always turns out to be very very timely in that season (must be coincidence (yeah right!)).
