Dear younger me…

In June my friends and I were challenged to write a letter to our younger self. It took me a bit to get started, but once that pen started – it almost couldn’t stop. Have you ever thought what you would say?

I didn’t expect it to bring the freedom that it did. I started to apply to my life the things I warned my younger self not do to. The things I regretted not doing, I’m now doing. Getting out of my comfort zones. Doing things I thought I couldn’t. My list could go on and on.

I recently purchased the need Mercy Me album and funny enough there’s a song about this very thing. As you read them, think about what you would tell yourself.

Dear younger me
Where do I start
If I could tell you everything that I have learned so far
Then you could be
One step ahead
Of all the painful memories still running thru my head
I wonder how much different things would be
Dear younger me, dear younger me

Dear younger me
I cannot decide
Do I give some speech about how to get the most out of your life
Or do I go deep
And try to change
The choices that you’ll make cuz they’re choices that made me
Even though I love this crazy life
Sometimes I wish it was a smoother ride
Dear younger me, dear younger me

If I knew then what I know now
Condemnation would’ve had no power
My joy my pain would’ve never been my worth
If I knew then what I know now
Would’ve not been hard to figure out
What I would’ve changed if I had heard

Dear younger me
It’s not your fault
You were never meant to carry this beyond the cross
Dear younger me

You are holy
You are righteous
You are one of the redeemed
Set apart a brand new heart
You are free indeed

Every mountain every valley
Thru each heartache you will see
Every moment brings you closer
To who you were meant to be
Dear younger me, dear younger me

You are holy
You are righteous
You are one of the redeemed
Set apart a brand new heart
You are free indeed [x3]


We are called and created to live in freedom. Let’s live like it!!

Enjoy your weekend!
