Growing up is tough. You can find refuge here.

Think about your future


It’s really hard sometimes to get past the things that have hurt us.  We tend to get so caught up in them that we can’t even see what is happening in the here and now; and what’s worse, we can’t find hope in the future.

So what do you want to do with your future?  What do you really want to do?  Go to college?  Study abroad?  Maybe you just want to set short term goals like making the volleyball team or getting on the honor roll.  It really doesn’t matter what your goals are, the important thing is to set them.  Keep pushing yourself forward.  Stay away from the people that drag you down, even if that means sticking with family for now.  God will send the right friends at the right time.

Don’t get so stuck on your past that you miss what’s happening around you.  Let it go.  Look ahead to all the exciting things you could do with your life.  I’ve said it before; there is a reason God didn’t put eyes in the back of our head.

Keep moving forward and look up as you go.Image

It’s okay to just breath


ImageHello to a beautiful generation of young people.

 Growing up in today’s society is so very hard.  I say that not because I am in your shoes, but because I see you struggling; and I am here to tell you that you will be okay! I know that I know that I know this!

God did not put you on this earth to watch you suffer.  He put you here to fulfill His purpose.  Let me be honest with you dear one, life is just plain hard sometimes.  It doesn’t make sense, and we feel stuck and alone.  It seems like at times we have no direction to go.  We feel numb, abandoned, lost.

Listen to me…..”YOU ARE NOT ALONE!” Sometimes it is okay to just breath.  If you need a direction to go – look upward.  Talk to God like He is your only hope, because He is.  It may seem like He left you alone with your struggles, but infact He is holding your hand.  He is allowing this struggle because He needs you.  He needs you to be strong and get through this because someday…..maybe sooner than later……someone else will be hurting; and you will be the one to say “I know how you feel, and you will be okay”

Hang on my love…..hang on tight.  It’s going to be okay!  We need you in this world!
