Have you ever thought back to when you were a teenage, thought you knew everything, and thought life would be easy?
I’m not sure I ever believed life would be easy when I was younger, but I’m sure I thought I knew how to act, what to say in every situation, and of course every decision I made then was always the right one!
Yes, when we’re young, we think those who have lived more of their lives than us, don’t know what they’re talking about, because life surely can’t be that hard, can it? But as we live our lives and learn from our experiences and our challenges we realise, we’re not actually right in every decision we’ve taken or every choice we’ve made. But despite that, we try to learn from our past, and realise it was all those decisions that have brought us to where we are now, and who we are now.
I love ‘Dear me’ by Nicole Nordeman that I shared at the start of this blog post. I think if I had to write a letter to a younger me, I say some very similar things, but I would also say, never assume others know how you feel (physically or emotionally), always tell those you love just how you are, they will help you if you’re struggling.
Also, never think you know better than God, you don’t. God must be your rock, the One you always rely on, even when you think He’s ignore you, because he isn’t.
Dear Me You did not learn this in a day or two or three So ask a lot of questions But Jesus loves us, this I know And there are no exceptions
