I found this in my prayer journal. It was dated June 12 2010 at 1:30 AM, titled “Things I need to remember when life gets confusing.”
Jesus is the answer to everything, especially the confusing questions that He couldn’t possibly be the answer to.
Grades aren’t everything.
Friends are a phone call away.
Jesus loves me this I know, for the Bible tells me so.
God is not confused. He never punts. He has no plan B. There is no such thing as an “outside chance.”
Loving is more important than being right.
Things are seldom as bad as you think, and were rarely as good as you remember.
“Hold Me Jesus” is appropriate ALL the time.
Love at first sight is silliness.
Time spent with God is never wasted.
Be yourself. Those who mind don’t matter, and those who matter don’t mind.
Rely on God for everything.
This isn’t a complete list, but it’s everything that was in my prayer journal. Not sure why “love at first sight” was in there… and the Be Yourself quote was from Dr. Seuss.
