Advice for the younger me

June 3rd, 2009

Rodney Olsen did an interesting post a few days ago. In it he talked about giving advice to himself as the young child in his photo.

This got me thinking what advice that I would give myself if I could go back knowing what I know now. Here are the four things I would say to myself if I could go back to visit myself when I was about 12 or so.

1. Listen to those people in your early teens who told you about Christ. They are speaking the truth.

2. Wait for the right girl. God has someone very special for you. So please be patient.

3. That God will use your illness to shape your life in a positive way and others will come to Christ as a result. Just be patient as there is purpose in all the suffering.

4. God has an amazing plan for your life. Trust Him and live it out.

I found it an interesting exercise of reflection. What would you say to your younger self if you could go back and talk to yourself?
