I may have hinted that I am quite young, and it may have been obvious because I don’t consider myself to be very mature, but I am actually 17 years old. I don’t know why I kept this so long. It was really silly of me, but I truly was afraid of admitting this. I guess I felt like I couldn’t help people if they knew I was younger, but I am reminded now of 1 Timothy 4:12: “Don’t let anyone look down on you because you are young, but set an example for the believers in speech, in conduct, in love, in faith and in purity.”
I would like to sit here to thank all of the older people whose blogs I follow. You have done a great job of convicting me, encouraging me and teaching me, in moments where the light was so hard to see, and when I was so willing to give up. And best of all, you didn’t even know that you had done all this for me, and not just for me, but for many people who have stopped by to read your posts. Please keep doing it, for the sake of all your younger brothers and sisters in Christ. We need your mature guidance.
Please pray for me and take care of me, and I will try my best to do the same.
