In Others’ Words: Old Nonsense
Such weighty invisibles … slowing us down, holding us back. If I’m looking in the rear view mirror, how can I be aware of what’s happening up ahead? How can I be prepared for the future if I’m mired in the past?
The question that has lingered with me all weekend is this: What would I tell my younger self?
Oh, so many things.
- People aren’t always trustworthy … but they are worth loving just the same.
- God isn’t understandable … but he’s faithful and he loves you, loves you, loves you in an immensely unfathomable way.
- Forgive yourself … and in those moments when you can’t, throw yourself into the depths of God’s lavish grace and mercy and drown.
- Failure can be a good thing. Go ahead, don’t believe me now. You’re young. You’re allowed to doubt. But when you’re older, make sure you come back and tell me, “You were right.” And I won’t say, “I told you so.”
