Dear Younger me, be still and wait

Dear younger me,

There may come a time when you want to rush things. You will believe that your motivation is admirable and perhaps it is.

You want so badly to get to your dream career, you want so badly to meet that dream man, that awesome friend. You want so badly to be independent, so you rush towards it.

If you do that my dear, you will hurt so many others along the way. Rather than your motivations being admirable, they are selfish, because you are rushing God’s timing. Just trust His timing.

He can easily bring about your desire or He will replace it with something even better.

Don’t make the same mistake I did. Please trust, wait, and spend that energy loving and protecting others, rather than using them to get somewhere quicker.
