State of the Union: Turning 24

Turning 24. Nothing groundbreaking here.

For the sake of cliché, I’m listening to Switchfoot’s 24.

It’s 6:37am and I’m in my living room in Coeur d’Alene, ID. We are afraid to turn on the heat because of the electricity bill so I’m cold. Megan got up to go babysit some kids this morning, but she’ll be back soon. Hopefully with cup cakes.

Last night we went over to her parents’ house for my birthday dinner. We had cheesecake and opened presents, I felt very loved.

We then watched Louie Giglio’s DVD Indescribable. Though I’ve seen bits and pieces before, it was great to watch it from start to finish. Needless to say, I am moved by how much I’m truly loved.

In some sort of preparation for the DVD, God painted the most amazing sunset I’ve seen in a long time last night. Megan and I were both in awe of God’s artistry. I would try to describe it to you, but as you guessed, it was indescribable.

That is where I’m at this morning. My state of the union for turning 24: I’m in love with a God who is an artist and a lover of His creation. My faith has grown so much in the last couple years. I guess you can say, that I’ve turned towards God.

Looking back, it’s crazy to think of how much money, time, and energy I’ve wasted. I used to think I was chasing after God and searching for Him, but I wasn’t. I think my “chasing after Him” was a chasing after the wind. I’m convinced that now; I don’t have to run anymore. I don’t have to search or seek.

After that Sunset last night, I’m convinced that He’s been chasing after me. I am loved.
