An unrealized treasure

So as my birthday hones in tomorrow. It’s given me a lot of time of reflection and this morning as I was praying about some things the Lord began to show me my spiritual journey so far and this inner turmoil that I was currently feeling was not necessarily a bad thing but just me coming into a new era of, identity, and calling. I remember my journey coming to Christ for real. I was a junior in college just shy of my 21st Birthday. And up until that point, I had nothing to offer. Coming into a church family and a ministry it was a total whirlwind. I didn’t come from a preaching family, I had no affiliation to a church or organization. The college I was attending was small and obsolete. I didn’t have a skill set, or an amazing gift or ability to offer. I didn’t even have money to sow. All I had were my two physical hands to serve and hunger for deliverance. I was then what some may call an "unrealized treasure" hidden deep in the dirt. And the past nine years has been God, my spiritual parents, mentors, etc. have digging me out of the dirt. And now here I am nine years later and I’ve made some really bad falls. Some outstanding strides. And overcome some huge battles and I don’t recognize myself. It’s scary. I think turning 29 is more than me ending my twenties but more so, coming into a more realized self. And knowing that self is something that God desires to use. So cheers to “29” the year of the Realized Treasure. “But we have this treasure in earthen vessels, that the exceeding greatness of the power may be of God, and not from ourselves;” 2 Corinthians 4:7 ASV
