The saying goes.. Dirty Thirty… I’m not too sure who came up with this for the turning milestone of thirty.. but I’ll have to take a pass on that negative entrance of this milestone.
As the big THIRTY was approaching for me.. I had a lot of feelings of anxiety And high expectations for myself and for God. I couldn’t help it feeling like my time was running out for certain things to happen in my life.. but let’s be honest, certain things just don’t happen over night on our own.. with God tho.. time has no barrier and things could happen within a blink of an eye.
Sooo The Holy Spirit dropped in my heart that instead of that terrible saying.. I was rather entering WORTHY THIRTY.
WORTHY THIRTY, WORTHY THIRTY, WORTHY THIRTY!! Try saying that one 3x fast,😅.
Ahh, Sooo according to Urban Dictionary the saying “Dirty Thirty” means: “The top definition is: The age at which single women without children realise that their biological clock is ticking, As a consequence they may lower their standards and increase their willingness to perform sexual acts as a matter of desperation in order to find a mate/sexual partner.”
Exactly why I’ll pass on this phrase.
Upon turning thirty, I in fact did have much worry about being unwed, childless and still growing roots.
But I was quickly reminded of my theme scripture for the rest of this year..
He has made everything beautiful in its time. He has also set eternity in the human heart; yet no one can fathom what God has done from beginning to end. (NIV translation)
So instead of the unnecessary weight that being Thirty May bring to other ppl, I now have a sense of peace because I am still a prized commodity, the daughter of the most high King and absolutely Worthy of being Thirty and can wait patiently on My Heavenly Father. He always has me in mind and never ever ever ever forgot about me.
The same as how he will Never ever ever forget about YOU👈🏾
I feel like my duty is now to help women entering their thirties in my shoes or boat know that.. they are indeed Worthy and they should kick those lies of dirtiness into the wilderness. We should never ever adopt any worldly term as a characteristic of ourselves. What does the world know… they’ve forsaken Adonai as their Father and King.
As I continue through this journey of being Thirty… especially it being the second half of the year… July to be exact.. I hold my head up high anticipating all my Heavenly Father has to offer me.. and according to Jeremiah 29:11… He has really great plans for me and I’m still a winner in HIS book.
There has been much that has transpired since turning Worthy Thirty but, for now I’ll keep it short.
I urge you sisters… and you brothers.. entering your thirties.. unwed, childless and still planting roots.. the last shall be first and the first shall be last.. never despise small beginnings. Abba Papa still has much much in store for you. Sooo continue to hold onto him because Great is his faithfulness and his promises still stands. He is NOT a MAN that shall lie… but A GOD whose promises are YES and AMEN.
Shalom and stay tuned for the next writing… this one took long enough… 🙄😅😁😇 his grace is sufficient for me.
