Dear Younger Me, 

Wait patiently. I’m so excited for you to someday see what God has in store for you. You are worried now about the future, you are jealous now of others who have what you don’t, but God’s ways are so good in His perfect timing for your life. So good. I can tell you now that all you need to do is just be patient, which is hard. Those longings and times of impatience, though, will point you to God who is where satisfaction is found. Where all fulfillment is found. As you would wait for any family member or friend in daily life, wait for God. His leadership, His care, and His knowledge are so above you.  

And goodness, how thankful you can be for the times that God didn’t fulfill your desires at the wrong times. More patience is required, but oh, how sweet it will be when you see what God was leading you to all along. So, follow Psalm 27:14, and all the other times this is said in the Bible, “Wait patiently for the LORD. Be brave and courageous. Yes, wait patiently for the LORD.” 

Praise Him, for He is good!
