Twenty One



Twenty one.  A mixture of happy and homesick.  A mixture of thankful and thoughtful.  Unsure of how to balance it all yet feeling weightless at the same time. 

Twenty one years of laughter and heartache, learning and mistakes, and learning from mistakes.  Twenty one years of  having my heart impacted by people, the blessing of family, and friends who feel like family.  Twenty one years of growth and exploring, love and loss, strength and fragility. 

Twenty one years, countless heartbeats, immeasurable moments; all held together by the beauty of His grace.  It's strange to think that the One I once ran away from is now the One who I am constantly running to; calling His name and aching for His presence.  That even though I am so unworthy of His love, my Heavenly Father is crafting together my life with the most intricate detail and precision. 

Twenty one years of His beauty on display for all to see, although often messily hidden by my selfishness.  Now His reckless love shines through and He uses my broken past as the platform to display His mercy and the transformation only he can bring.  The cracks in my façade give way to a light that is far more powerful than my brokenness.  Years of feeling lost and now I am facing the future years with Him by my side, never leaving me and always loving me. 

Twenty one years old and yet, a child to my Heavenly King.
