16. Where (spiritually, physically, emotionally, OR vocationally etc.), do you imagine yourself in 10 years?
In 10 years, I will be 34 (minus 2 months). Wow, 10 years is a long time. I’ve had a lot of changes in my life in just the last year and a half, like graduating from college, getting married, working fulltime, raising my own puppy, cooking, maintaining a blog. Lots of great changes!
Well, let’s see. In 10 years, this is where I see myself:
I would like to be perfect. Ha! But do you feel this way? I mean, I want to worship God perfectly and obey Him perfectly. But we all know that’s not going to happen—at least, not until I die and go to heaven.
In the mean time, I am thankful that God promises to grow me in holiness day by day. And I am thankful that He sees Christ in me instead of my imperfection. I will rest in Him.
Well, by then I hope that I’ve already had some children, and Michael keeps telling I’m going to be pudgy after the whole giving birth thing. Not necessarily, right? Anyway, I’m glad he’s fine with the pudge I may gain, but my goal is to be the same weight-wise as I am now. I would like to gain some strength in my arms, though, for things like lifting pots and carrying around wiggly kids.
I have always been an anxious person, and I fear rejection. But I do not want fear to control my life—I want God to control my life. My prayer is that in 10 years I will have learned to trust God with more of my fears.
I hope to be a stay-at-home mom. Michael and I also want to home school—so I’ll be pretty busy with that. :)
I’m excited about the future. How about you?
