Jessie’s Gems


Why is it that I have so many questions? Wheather they be big ones or small ones, I still seem to have many questions about life and myself. “Will they accept me for who I am?” “Should I be doing this?” “Will this dishonor my beliefs and disappoint others if I made this decision?”As teenagers and young adults we tend to have many questions. And I can see why! Being a teen/young adult can be a very difficult age, because we are no longer kidsn but at the same time we are not fully grown adults yet. This is the time in our lives to find what God truly has in store for us. To find who we are in His identity and put the ambition in our gifted passions. And as we explore, questions will be asked. We just want to make sure that we are on the right path. I can be very guilty of overthinking. In my life expereince so far I’ve learned that overthinking too much can lead to unwanted anxiety and depression. I had to learn that it is okay to not know every question. It is okay to fall apart sometimes. Falling apart makes us human and gives us the ablility to learn from our mistakes. No matter what age we are, we are still God’s children and He will give us the strength to guide us to where we need to go. So stop, take a breath and see where the path takes you. Life is too short to have that many questions, so go out there and have them answered by doing!
“Trust in the Lord with all of your heart and lean not on your own understandings. In all your ways acknowledge Him and He shall guide your path.” Proverbs 3:5- 6
