Here are some lyrics from Avicii’s song Wake Me Up for your Soundtrack today:

‘So wake me up when it’s all over / When I’m wiser and I’m older / All this time I was finding myself / And I didn’t know I was lost’ YouTube vid here: http://bit.ly/1aOBMjM

Being a teenager is hard. Are you ever tempted to say: ‘this is actually TOO hard, wake me up when it’s all over’?

Don’t do it! We are changed by the journeys we are on. Being mature comes only from the messy, painful process of maturing. David said in Psalm 16v8: ‘I have set the Lord, always, before me. Because he is at my right hand I will not be shaken.’

Keep God in sight, live boldly, stay wide awake.
