Dear Younger Me,
Already and not yet...is the kingdom of God, and your freedom. Because of Jesus, you know that freedom from worry and anxiety are yours. And you might not experience that total freedom until you see God’s face because in your own humanity, you are prone to anxiety. It hurts and it’s hard that as much as you might try to recite verses about peace that relief doesn’t come in the way you want. But hold tight to the promise that victory is yours because of Jesus. Healing is yours. Clench His promise and His Truth, and know His joy as you cling. And some glorious day, you’re going to know what being carefree really looks like, a gift of His grace to you whether in this life or in Heaven. Hang on, sweet one, it’s coming.
