30 Years of God's Goodness

by Regin Reyno

I just turned 30. Yes, time flies really fast. Yesterday, July 26, 2013, I celebrated my 30th birthday. 

As I contemplated on my life for the past 30 years, I can't help but praise the Lord for His goodness. 

Family, good health, friends, relationships, protection and experiences-these are the things I am most grateful for. He has given me all of these. God is really good. 

O give thanks unto the LORD; for he is good: for his mercy endureth for ever. Psalms 136:1

At 30 years old, I was able to experience 19 countries , scaled 6 mountains (Makulot, Batulao, Cristobal, Banahaw, Manabo, Makiling), visited 10 UNESCO World Heritage sites, participated in 3 international choral festivals, and 1 international blog festival.

All of these were accomplished because of God's goodness. And in all my travels and adventures,  He's always there, and sending His angels to protect me from any accidents and bad intentions of men. 

Hitting the 30 year-old mark, I visited my bucket list-the 50 things I want to accomplish before the age of 40-and discovered that there are 23 more things to tick. So, 10 more years to go to tick all of the 50 list.

“We have nothing to fear for the future, except as we shall forget the way the Lord has led us," -Ellen G. White

Thank you Lord.
