Writer's Block: Back to the future

If you were 12 and could see yourself now, do you think you'd be happy or disappointed, and why?

Photobucket
This is really strange, but when I was around 12, I can distinctly remember being somewhat fearful of growing up. I didn’t ever want to lose my faith and turn away from everything I believed in and loved.

Now, almost 40 years later, my 12 year old self would have been relieved to know…

I still believe.

I still believe in Your faithfulness
I still believe in Your truth
I still believe in Your holy word
Even when I don't see, I still believe
- Jeremy Camp

When I was 12, I was not yet born again. It blesses me to know that some 12-year-olds are, and some of them reach middle age and beyond.

I feel like entries like this are real gems, because I get a different type of glimpse into who you are and who you used to be.

One of my favorite songs ever.. he wrote that song after the death of his new bride.

Beautiful song in the midst of such heartache. And now God has turned his ashes to gold and given him a new bride.
