If you could go back to 18 years old, just out of high school, maybe starting college, what advice would you give your 18 year old self?
I was discussing this with a friend of mine last night who is dropping her son off at college tomorrow. I didn't quite know what to say, except to tell her I'd pray for her.
But, after talking to her last night I did know one thing to do. I made sure to go kiss the sweet little cheeks of my 4 year old son, Andy, sleeping soundly in my home. It was a reminder that I won’t always get that chance.
As for the advice for 18 year olds? I think Sidewalk Prophets said it best in their song, "The Words I Would Say"
Be strong in the Lord and
never give up hope.
You're gonna do great things
I already know
God's got his hand on you so
don't live life in fear
forgive and forget
but don't forget why you're here
Take your time and pray
These are the words I would say
