You go before me and follow me.
You place your hand of blessing on my head. (Psalm 139:5 NLT)
In the Old Testament scriptures, a year of Jubilee was decreed by God for the Israelites to forgive all debts and have a year of rest for the land.
I plan to observe this ancient practice in my own unique way for the next year.
I have been looking forward to this year of Jubilee for fifty years. Well, maybe not consciously, but I have been alive for fifty years now. I have been counting the days to this moment, so that I could offer a special thanks to God for getting me here.
To recount all the blessings and ways God has kept me would take at least 50 blog posts. So instead, as I mark the beginning of a new era, I compiled a list of things I’m looking forward to in the next season of life.
My greatest longing is to see God face to face, but until then I will seek His presence in the here and now.
So here’s my list for what I am looking forward to as I celebrate becoming 50:
I am looking forward to . . .
more celebrations, more surprises, more adventures, more joy, more art, more reading, more writing, more love, more travel, more living and more of God’s grace.
