Dear Younger Me,
When your heart is racing in the middle of the night, and you’re so unsure of how to handle what you’re worried about, remember the voice of God calmly saying, “Trust me.”
As you spin your head in circles, you forget that you have someone in your corner who knows exactly what’s up. He knows your story, He knows your next move, and He holds your heart, too. No one else knows you better, and He knows all the pages. Remember those choose-your-own-adventure books you used to read? You would get frustrated trying to choose the right pages to get the ending you wanted. Even now, you might know what you want and aren’t sure how to get there, but you really don’t know what adventures God has planned for you, either. You can’t fast forward to know the ending or skip ahead to read the pages you’re anxious to read, but you can trust that God knows.
Because if God gave you a remote to fast forward or He presented all the pages of your life for you to read, you’d not lean on Him. You wouldn’t learn to trust. So when your heart is racing as your mind is spinning and you’re trying to tackle all of your problems in your own hands at 11:30 p.m., remember the voice of God calmly saying, “Trust me.”
