Things were so easy when you were 10.
Things were simple. Shoot, even at 16 it was easy. I remember sitting in a small Bible study at my sister’s house when I was asked the question everyone loves to ask to teenagers: Where do you see yourself in 10 years?
I don’t know how you answered that question when you were 15 or 16 but for me, I knew exactly how my life was going to turn out. The plan was set. I would grow up, graduate high school, go to college, compete in the Olympics, win a gold medal, find a husband, get married and have babies.
Eventually I would trade in the cool car (more like the clunker) for a mini van and life would unfold with grace, the Gospel, and the happily ever afters I always dreamed of.
Well, here I am. More than 10 years have passed and on my list of things I “knew” would happen by now, only three have actually come to pass. I grew up (maybe?), graduated high school and graduated college.
So what if life doesn’t happen the way we dreamed when we were teenagers?
What if you graduate high school and college and you still haven’t met the one? What if your story hasn’t quite played out the way you anticipated and you find yourself single when you thought for sure you would be married by now?
