“Train a child in the way he should go, and when he is old he will not turn from it.”
How do you define the word training? What does it mean to you? Are you afraid of being disciplined in your training? Do you know how to express your feelings? If not, please listen! The statements above, are the thoughts of my adolescent self. The mind that I had, is not the mind that I have now. I am more honest as to why, I thought the word training meant, growing up to fast, or not even having time to just be me. Which was definitely not the truth. My growth process was so beautiful, and I had so much time, to find out what my purpose is.
Nevertheless, I know now that my mind was so focused on the negative, instead of the positive. You know, my only regret is not giving myself a chance. As the old saying goes, we are our worse critics!
So instead of getting down on yourself, give yourself a chance and allow yourself to grow tall!
Dear Heavenly Father, I thank you for giving me this chance, to realize how I should think and I’m sorry for not appreciating the journey you are leading me on. I pray for understanding, so that I may truly see your purpose for my life. I love you. Amen.
