Happy Birthday! You’re now 33. Can you believe it?
So many things has happened in your life since you started 30s and most of them, good… some of them not so good, but look at where you are at now! Standing still and calm and beautiful – as I may say. You know very well how much you have gone through and the pain in your heart which you have hidden for so long. You were down, beaten and broken — you were torn apart, abandoned and forgotten. But you stood up again and again no matter how many lashes were against you. And why is this?
It is because you knew in your heart that Christ is with you and FINALLY, you have given your whole life fully to HIM.
For the past 3 years, you found yourself changing. Slowly but surely into the woman you are now. From the selfish child you were, you slowly gave up things — you slowly worked yourself up from delusion to reality. You let go of so many things and you did try to declutter your life until what remained are the bare essentials： Your FAITH. Your INSPIRATION and CREATIVITY. Your SMILE. Your TENACITY and COURAGE. Your POSITIVITY. Your FRIENDS.
You were stripped of everything. But now you are clothed with love of family, TRUE friends, real Talent and INSPIRATiON, and the fulfillment of lifelong dreams.
Who knew that by giving up your pride and your whole self, you would be rewarded by this?
You wake up everyday now, pinching yourself to see if it is a dream or its real. You are LIVING YOUR DREAM! Because you let go. Because you waited, you persevered and let HIM work in your life. Never lose the faith and always believe in the words in Josh 1:9 DO NOT BE AFRAID OR DISCOURAGED for the Lord your GOD is with you wherever you go.
Yes, God and this wonderful company has given you the dream of a lifetime. The best birthday present ever.
Yet, Maria, remain humble. Remember all that you have been through and keep doing your best. In Ecc. 9:10 it said`”Whatever you do, do well for when you go to the grave, there will be no work, or planning or knowledge or Wisdom.” Keep your feet on the ground, and your eyes to the stars.
Never let go of that faith and inspiration that led you to be as COMPLETE as you are now.
Still, you believe that you are a work in progress– yes you are. And you still yearn for your GOD’S BEST. Wait a little more, Maria. He will come — at the right time. When your heart is fully healed and not broken into a million pieces. He will come when you are truly ready. He will surely come for you and sweep you off your feet.
Don’t hurry. Enjoy yourself. Love yourself. Be a blessing wherever you may go. Keep that pretty smile on your face, Maria. You are doing well.
God rewards patience.
God loves you. you are not alone.
Remember Phil 4: 6-7.
He promised. He will surely follow through.
Now, GO PARTY like a ROCKSTAR and LIVE THE BEST LIFE YOU CAN. IT’S YOUR YEAR!!
your 33 year old self.
