“In life, where a phase ends is where another begins.”
I’ve come to a point in my life where the end of a phase marks the beginning of another. A chapter of my life has come to an end, and another one is about to be unfurled.
There comes a time in the life of a man where somethings have to be in the past. Past immaturities, insecurities, and inferiorities. The previous chapter was a roller coaster of ups and downs, joy and sadness, good times and bad times, and no doubt tears and laughter. In a wrap, it had been awesome and mind-blowing. Indeed, I had a taste of the cliché that says, ‘life is not a bed of roses.’
I’ve struggled through the waters of life almost drowning, but at the nick of time, I was rescued. I’ve been weighed down by the heavy burdens of worry and anxiety of what the future holds, but I was able to find a place of rest early enough. Many times I’ve felt useless and worthless, but at the point of giving up, I found my self-worth in Christ.
Teenage experiences, high emotions, and all the things that accompanies it did not leave me without giving me its own share of what life has to offer. Well, I dare say that the experiences garnered from this stage of my life is what has prepared me for the next phase I’m journeying into.
The beginning of another phase is here! This chapter is a work in progress. I’ve never experienced this stage, hence, I don’t know what it has to offer. Just as a popular song goes, ‘many things about tomorrow, I don’t seem to understand, but I know who holds tomorrow, and I know He holds my hands.’ All I can say is that the One who holds the pen of my life is crafting out a mind-blowing, intriguing, suspense-filled and epic story of my life. Watch out!
As I begin a new phase of life, all I can say is that I’ll enjoy the process while I await the end result. It might not be easy, I might have reasons to despair, but one thing I know is that though I am opened to a stage of the unknown, I am partnering with a known God, and that settles it.
So teach me Lord to number my days that I may apply my heart unto wisdom in this novel stage of my life.
All I can hear is the Captain saying, “welcome on board for the next journey. It might not be an easy ride, but just trust me all through the journey, and you will be fine.” To this end, I congratulate myself on a successful journey into a novel phase of my life.
The Lord bless me and keep me, the Lord make His face to shine upon me, and be gracious unto me. The Lord lift up His countenance upon me, and give me peace. Happy birthday to me.
