In our teen/twenties there are a lot of decisions we have to make that will effect the rest of our lives...our future and much of what we do is to prepare for our future. Be it finishing High school, finishing college, deciding to stay home and learn on our own, which career to learn, start working at _____ or wait till_____.
How many times do we say: "When I am done with school I will.....", "When I am twenty-one......", "When I get married....." We are constantly living in "One day" instead of "To-day".
I want you to look around you. Do you have a good home? Good parents? Good church? Godly friends? Education? If you can say yes to any of these you are really blessed! How about the simple things like 3 meals a day, running water, a kitchen or washing machine. Then we all have those things that we get so attached to like computers, Mp3 players, treadmills, cars.... We are blessed beyond measure.
I think you and I need to enjoy the time where we are at right now....we will never get this time back. It will never be the same. If you are single....enjoy it, hang out with your friends, be a blessing to others, travel and see missionaries, put your whole heart in the Lords work.
If you have a boyfriend or are engaged it is natural and good to look forward to the day when you are married but its also good to enjoy the time of courtship and dating....I hear its one of the best times. ☺
So girls, today, just look around and see the beauty in how life is now.....Love the present!
