I’m in my 30’s now and I’ve been thinking back to how I different I feel compared to when I was a teen. I remember feeling like my faith blew hot and cold all the time. Sometimes I was an amazing Christian, but it never seemed to last long.
These days I’m far more aware of my own sinfulness (I feel amazing less often) but also far more consistent. I want to go back and tell ‘teen me’, ‘It’s okay, you’ll get there in the end. Just keep plugging away at learning to come back to God, asking for forgiveness and grace to change. If you keep doing that then one day you’ll see that change.’
