You are 18 years old and you have the world ahead of you. You are a bright young woman who is searching and wondering what life will be like in your20’s, 30’s, 40’s and 50’s. well I am 51 next month and I want to tell you that you are going to make. It is going to be rocky and painful but you are going to make.
God loves you with an everlasting love. The enemy is going to try and take you out but it will not work, because God has your name written on the palm of his hand.
Continue with your passion for books and reading because it is going to serve you well. One important thing my dear, develop a relationship with The Holy Spirit, love your bible because that book will literally save your life. Read it, digest it, memorise it. Do not listen to anyone who says God is not real, trust me he is very very real. I have seen and experienced things and if it was not for the very present help of God I would be gone. Trust me younger woman, God is real and he has your back even though it may not feel like it but he does.
Oh my goodness if you only knew how much he loves you, oh my! He is going to lead you and guide you through every fiery trial, but you know what you are going to come as pure gold.
Younger me, don’t let your fears, low self esteem or insecurities stop you. I know you don’t have any positive role models at the moment but hang in there because better is coming. You are going to grow into a woman who has a tangible experience with God and when feel like giving up he won’t let you. When you experience shame and embarrassment, stand tall. When you are called evil names remember what God calls you and tells you who you are and what you mean to him. When you cry at 3am in the morning remember those tears are silent prayers to Father God. When you are abandoned remember you are accepted in heavenly places with Christ Jesus. Yes whatever poison is thrown at you Jesus has the antidote.
The Holy Spirit in you is a treasure in an earthen vessel, an earthen vessel of honour and high esteem. You are beautiful no matter what anyone else says. You are a great mother no matter what anyone else says, you are a loyal wife no matters what anyone else says.
Be encouraged sweet one because the world will know of the great gift that the Father himself has placed inside of you. It doesn’t look like must now, just remember mining a diamond is a long process but when the process is done and from what ever angle you see the diamond all you will see is something perfectly cut by the hand of God and as the light reflects on it from different angles all you will see is beauty. You are beautiful, you may not always feel like it, but you are.
Be encouraged because your expected end will be great, so be faithful to what God will put in your hand. You will be taken advantage off, but remain faithful. Your future is so bright, I am excited for you.
All my love Me at 50 👏🙏😘
