TEENAGERS: THE SECRETS TO GROWING UP WISELY

Let me share with you the best advice I know. Being a teenager is fun and exciting as you grow into adulthood. Middle School, High School and College are great times for you to become and blossom into who you are meant to be. There will be times that are challenging with school work, making friends, hanging out with the "right crowd" and choosing the right path.

But you can make WISE DECISIONS, GET THE HELP YOU NEED AND GET THROUGH ANYTHING WITH GOD BY YOUR SIDE. You see, God is really watching and can participate in your life. There are three very important people you may want to rely on for help. Build your relationship with one, two or all three. You pick and decide.

ALMIGHTY FATHER
If you want to talk to a "Father Figure" or "Grandfather Figure"...go to HIM.
He is all wise, loving and powerful. HE will take you under HIS wing and protect you from any harm. HE will help you grow up into the man or woman you are destined to become... Ask Father for advice in any situation and become devoted to HIM. Father is loving and will guide you with everything. Think of HIM as an extra FATHER....BECAUSE HE REALLY IS.

JESUS CHRIST
HE is my best friend. HE is super powerful, cool, has a lot of patience and forgives us for our mistakes. However, HE will not let anyone "bully you around".
Jesus is the MOST POWERFUL NAME IN THE UNIVERSE...just saying "it", makes you stronger and HIS HELP IS ON THE WAY. Jesus can be the best friend you grow up with now...and keep throughout your lifetime. By getting close to Jesus, you will be more confident, make wiser choices and have a really cool powerful friend. HE will help you with everything.

HOLY SPIRIT
Let the Holy Spirit walk with you everywhere, sorta like a guardian angel. Open your heart and mind to the will and love of God...and you will find the HOLY SPIRIT. The Holy Spirit can guide you through everything too. HE is that "little voice" inside of you that talks to you. Always listen to that little voice...for it will always be correct. For example, if you are running out of the house and forget your phone, the "little voice" might say, "Go back and get it". But you think no, I don't need it...I am already running late, so I will just go. Then later on...you realize, "I should have taken my phone. I need it". Now I don't have it. ASK THE HOLY SPIRIT TO HELP YOU...AND YOU WILL SOMEHOW FIND A PHONE TO BORROW. BUT THE IMPORTANT LESSON IS ALWAYS LISTEN TO THAT INNER VOICE...it will never be wrong.

To have an easier, better life...get close to God. If you are smart you will. Let God guide you. Get rid of worrying, learn to lean on and trust in HIM. There is no problem too big for God to solve! God loves you and will never let you down.

I wish I knew these secrets when I was growing up... but hey, I KNOW IT NOW. Better late than never...

Very good advice. I did not get it either growing up. I was well into my 30's before I could appreciate my relationship with God, Jesus, and the Holy Spirit. I think sometimes it has to do with ones readiness to commit to the Lord. My neice who is 25 just now had a "conversion" experience and is on fire! It is so wonderful to see her so excited to want to change her life and live for God and His desire for her life.

Hi ginny,
As I said...Better late than never in finding God, anyway we can...

My hope and goal is that young teenagers and adults may find God now in their life...
You and I are both Blessed to know the love and goodness that comes from HIM...
and especially today, if our younger ones can find GOD ...they will feel much more empowered and loved. Their relationship with God will help prepare them for their future and guide them in their journey.
Thanks for sharing...
Have a great day.
God Bless You.

Warmest regards
