At the age of 24 (soon to be 25) I am desperately trying to get my life on track. My main goal right now is to take care of my debt. I am slowly getting myself on track but I have a long ways to go. I decided to really take control of my finances. In the year and a half I wasn’t being a very responsible adult and did not budget correctly. I was late on payments often. I definitely dug myself into a big whole. Therefore I decided to write down goals for myself and take more responsibility for myself and my money. Although most of my money really just goes to lunch for work. I still find myself struggling to catch up and pay.
I am working on my discipline and pray that I will be at least caught up by the end of this year or early next year so that I can start saving for mine and my family’s future!
Dear Lord Jesus:
Thank you for waking me up this morning. Thank you for watching over me and my family throughout the night. I ask that you continue to watch over us today. I ask that you guide us through our battles and obstacles. We love you and are forever thankful for your loving grace.
My greatest joy is going to be watching you grow.
I was chosen to be your mommy. Forever I will be your mommy. I will go to the ends of the earth to defend my right to be your mommy. I will protect you to the best of my abilities because I am your mommy. When you have your first booboo I will be there to kiss it and make it better, because I am your mommy. As your mommy I will love you through the good, the bad, and the ugly. As your mommy I will pray for you every morning and night. As your mommy I will look to the Lord to guide you through this world. I will try my best to protect you from the Devils in this world because I am your mommy. I will be your shield in times of hardship because I am your mommy. As your mommy I will practice unconditional love. As your mommy I will teach you how to be a strong woman, an intelligent and witty woman, and a woman of God.
And just like how I’ll always be your mommy, you will always be my babygirl.
I have imagined my life very different. I always had a plan for how I would live my life – when things would happen, who would be in my life. These past few years really took me by surprise. God had other plans for me. God wanted me to learn and grow. God needed me to see that I was not living the life he intended for me. Although this path God is putting on is tough, some days unbearable, I know he has not left me alone. He gave me people to help me through it all. He gave me people who love me. He gave me people to teach me. I just pray for strength to fight these battles and trials that you are putting me through so that I will become the woman you have always meant for me to be.
Please forgive me for my sins and guide me to live a life that honors you.
