Thoughts for 16 year old me

Sunday, January 27, 2013

Well now Panthers, this is a very interesting weekend challenge for me...when I was 16 years old, I weighed about 105 pounds. My father had kicked me out of the house and I was living with my boyfriend's family. His mom was NOT happy to have me there but since BF told her we would get married if I couldn't stay there, she grudgingly agreed to let me stay. I was SO sad and unhappy. The food they ate was different so I ate very little, I couldn't see my own family and I didn't know what was going to happen to me.

This all sounds very bad, doesn't it? It was very bad but there's the other side of the mountain where God is always leading us. My boyfriend has been my husband for over 30 years. My mother in law (recently deceased) told everyone that I was her "other daughter" and my father (also recently deceased) eventually began speaking to me and allowed me to be part of our family again. I have the greatest most awesome life ever and I am SO thankful every day.

What I would tell the scared little me is this: keep trusting God, it WILL be okay. HE's got you covered. He never fails no matter how bad things get.

Luckily, I knew that then, even in my most darkest days...just didn't know how very wonderful it was going to be.

    Knowing what you know now, I bet you do wish you could go back in time and reassure that 16yr old that she was doing the right thing.
So glad you've shared this story with us.
