Dear 18 year old me,
Trust me when I say that the most important relationship in your life is your relationship with Christ. He is the Only One Who will never leave you or betray you. He adores you, and loves you with an everlasting love. Give Him your heart to have and to hold from this day forward.
Right now, you think when you graduate you will begin a career that you will continue until retirement. WRONG! “Your ways are not my ways,” declared the Lord. Believe it or not, His ways are much better than yours anyway. Following Christ will take you on adventures you could never have imagined in your wildest dreams. You will soar like an eagle, but you will also have times when crawling seems to exhaust all of your energy. Just remember that in those times, He is strengthening you much like the caterpillar must draw strength in order to fly.
Life will throw you some curveballs, and there will be times when they smack you straight in the face. While the bruising is painful, it will not last forever. Keep going. Keep trusting. Keep living!
Love you, (wink, wink)
Your older and wiser self!
