Twenty one is a long life
We often consider a long life to be about seventy years or more, but how much time is there really in twenty one years? I have been alive for 21 years, 252 months, 1,095 weeks, 7,665 days, 184,065 hours, and 11,044,929 minutes. This time that I have broken down are all blessings form the Lord, and let me tell you why. Every second of everyday, the time that has encompassed these twenty one years that I have lived I have been blessed with air to take in, and to push back out again. I have eyes that can see, legs that can stand, and feet that continue to walk me step by step. My heart is beating because I can feel it in my chest. Not a day has gone by where the Lord hasn't blessed me with the blessing of life, of health, and the ability to function each and everyday. I didn't make it twenty one years, rather the Lord has chosen to grant me twenty one years of life that I do not regret living. I know that each and every trial I have been through, all of the sins that I have committed, and every time that the holy spirit has moved through me has fit into the Lords plan for me one way or another. If I die tomorrow I would regret very little, and I do believe I lived a long and happy life.
God Can Do The Impossible
I do believe that if you asked my parents what the hardest time of their life was, I think today would be the beginning of that time. For three months they came everyday to the NICU to see their son, and I would imagine each day they came and I was alive, gave them a sigh of relief that is beyond the comprehension of the human brain. There is no question, that I would not be the man I am today without the Lord putting them in my life, and for that I am truly thankful. I know you will both be reading this, and I love you with all of my heart no matter what. God has used them to mold me and shape me into the servant he wants in me and I only hope to live up to the Lords expectations. Mom and dad, if the thought has ever crossed your mind of "Did we do a good job?" or "Where we good parents?" I must tell you that you have gone above and beyond the title of what good parents are, and I hope you see that in me. In turn I hope that you can say the of me that I am a good son. The Lord brought me from a measly one and a half pounds to a normal healthy average twenty one year old, I have come far, probably further than those in the medical field may have predicted. This is what makes our Lord so amazing, it isn't what we will but what God wills. If you wish to read my testimony click this link.
