Advice to my 23 year old self: seek the Lord

When I was 23 I had graduated from college and was in my first full time year of work and preparing for my wedding. My advice to me/you would be:

Seek the Lord as you dream about your future. As long as your dreams are in line with God's, have the courage to pursue them and the patience to wait for what you truly desire -- NO COMPROMISES. If you are truly living for Him, He will give you the desires of your heart. Bypass what is good for what is GREAT!

Follow your gut, your inner promptings - this is the Lord guiding you. Don't ignore this, it can often be that still small voice that guides you in your best decisions for the future. Don't let anyone but the Lord influence your decisions. Listen closely only to those who know you best and have godly advice, even if it is not what you want to hear.

And on a lighter note - DON'T COLLECT CLUTTER! Get by with only what you NEED and/or LOVE. Don't let your house fill up with meaningless clutter. Instead of having lots of stuff, only choose meaningful high quality things. It will make your environment special and easier to manage.


Lori is Executive Director at Fresh Start Maternity Supports. For over two years I called her "boss-lady" but we became easy friends and still keep in touch on a regular basis.

Thanks, Lori, for your advice - I always appreciate your perspective!
