Tomorrow is my birthday. I’m turning 22. It would seem that the past 22 years have been well, a time of learning. I learned how to talk, how to walk, go to the bathroom on my own, how to ride a bike, learn my ABC’s, throw a ball, kick a ball, write in cursive, get in trouble, get a friend, sleep over at a friend’s house, get a bad grade, blog, graduate from middle school, become a freshman in high school, sleep in, get a job, quit a job, drive a car, go to a dance, have some drama, complete my high school education, own a car, get another job, go to college, get married, and last but not least I have learned that no matter how much I learn, I can’t outrun time. There’s no way for me to beat the clock of life, it just keeps ticking.

Recently we have been studying the book of Daniel in church. My pastor has been quick to point out that Daniel’s life is marked by a Godly character and from his young age of sixteen to his late eightees Daniel walked with the Lord. The better question is to ask myself if in my twenty-two years on this earth if I have walked for the Lord? Because when that “clock of life” stops ticking I will be held responsible for what I have done here. I can’t escape that, and I don’t plan to. I was just asking myself this week and I said, “Self, are you at a different place in your spiritual life then you were a year ago?” It’s a good question. I think I am, but I know it should more clear than just “I think..”

And if you didn’t catch the lyrics to the song above I have added them here.

“Let That Be Enough”
by : Switchfoot

I wish I had what I needed
To be on my own
‘Cause I feel so defeated
And I’m feeling alone

And it all seems so helpless
And I have no plans
I’m a plane in the sunset
With nowhere to land

And all I see
It could never make me happy
And all my sand castles
Spend their time collapsing

Let me know that You hear me
Let me know Your touch
Let me know that You love me
And let that be enough

It’s my birthday tomorrow
No one here could know
I was born this Thursday
22 years ago

And I feel stuck
Watching history repeating
Yeah, who am I?
Just a kid who knows he’s needy

Let me know that You hear me
Let me know Your touch
Let me know that You love me
And let that be enough
