Hello and Happy Friday! Hope you all have had a great week so far. I have been looking forward to this weekend for a while now, because The Hobbit is finally in theaters! Yay! I’m planning on going to see it sometime this weekend [let’s be honest—probably tonight], and I only hope it is as good of a bookà movie rendition as the Lord of the Rings films were. Fingers crossed! We also are going to put together the new grill my parents got us for Christmas [sadly, it came in a box], and hopefully have our first grilled-meal tomorrow:) Pretty excited to finally have another option for cooking burgers/chicken than the stovetop. Anyways, I read another one of my favorite verses this morning, and thought I would share it instead of the usual Friday Favorites…
“Don’t let anyone look down on you because you are young, but set an example for the believers in speech, in life, in love, in faith, and in purity.”
1 Timothy 4:12
Just because we are young, doesn’t mean we don’t have important things to say. God can use anyone at any age with any experience level to accomplish his plans. What’s important is that we live our lives in a way that brings glory to him, and in doing so set an example for living to other believers [young or old] around us. We shouldn’t be afraid to fulfill the calling God has placed in our lives just because we’re young, or feel unqualified or inexperienced. With Christ working in and through us, we are more than qualified to accomplish any task he has for us.
This is something I have been struggling with lately, and definitely what I needed to read this morning. Just because I am young, doesn’t mean I can’t be used by God to do great things for his kingdom here on Earth. I don’t need to feel unqualified. I just need to keep on living in a way that brings glory to God, and continue to set a good example for those around me. God will accomplish his purposes through me in spite of my age and experience level.
Just some food for thought. Well, I hope you all have a great weekend! I’m off to go get a few things done before work. God Bless:)
