Dear Future You,
I should probably start saving all of these random letters that I write to you. I have no idea if you will want to read them but here's the first that I'm actually saving.
I'm officially knee-deep in college and friends and all that comes with college. And all the expectations that come with college.
Do you know how many times I heard, "I met my husband my freshman year of college and I just knew he was the one." It's insane. Congratulations. I'm so happy you're happily married for 30-some years and have kids and a growing family. Really, I am.
Do you know how frustrated I get sometimes? With all these cutesy couples walking around that have been dating for years and are in their relationship together and with Christ.
Sometimes I ask the Lord the typical questions "WHO, what, WHEN, where?!" Sometimes a little more vocally than others.
Are you here, at school with me? Are you back home? Have I already met you? If not, when will we meet? If we have, when will the Lord reveal to both of us His plan?
I have no idea.
Future You, I can't wait to find out. I'm excited as frustrating as now can be sometimes. I can't wait to see what the Lord has for us together. If He can do crazy things in my life, imagine if we're together? (We better hold on tight in that case!)
Future You, I hope that you are solid in your faith in Christ right now. I pray you can lean on Him and trust Him with all that is in you. I pray that when we are together, we can lift each other up and lean on Him together with all of our might.
Future You, I hope you all well. I pray that life is going as smoothly as possible and you are enjoying every second with whomever is surrounding you. I pray that you are in good health and that your family is in good health as well.
Future You, I hope you love to serve. I pray that you want to serve Jesus everyday, in everything, and in every way. I pray that you have the same passions for service that I do and we can serve Jesus and other people together. I pray you have seen God work in amazing ways through your service. I pray that you give God all the glory for the things that He has done through you.
Future You, I hope you will be the best Daddy ever. You have some big shoes to fill because my Daddy is the best. I pray that you will love our children (Lord, willing) with all of your heart and teach them to love and serve Christ. He is so worthy.
Future You, I can't wait to hear all about what God has done in your life. I can't wait to laugh with you, serve Jesus with you, and just enjoy being with you. Until that day comes I continue praying for you and hoping that the Lord will orchestrate everything to His perfect will.
I am currently a teacher and life-long student of Scripture learning more about life and Jesus's marvelous love and boundless grace.
