It’s hard to write a letter to you. I mean, you’re 20 years older and assumingly wiser, stronger and better.
These then are my simple words to you my dear friend…
I hope that through the wind and storms of life your footsteps have remained strong and sure. That your heart continues to love radically. That your heart continues to fill and overflow with your Saviour’s radical love. I hope that each person that encounters you knows and experiences love deeply.
My dear one, if life has left you walled off and scared, look deep inside. Do not feel ashamed. I have known struggles and despite the darkness that threatens to overwhelm, there is always a spark. Look deep, find the spark and allow it to glow and burn once again. You are created for love, to be loved and to love.
However this letter finds you, continue to put one foot in front of the other.
Your 32 year old self.
p.s read and study Isaiah 43 and the Song of Songs. Yep, all of it.
