"The glory of the young is their strength; the gray hair of experience is the splendor of the old."
I was reading Proverbs 20 earlier this morning when I came across this verse. And I was reminded that every season of life is important. If we look for it, there truly is beauty in every moment.
In our current social media culture where a glimpse into someone else's life is just a click away, it is so easy to engage in the toxic act of comparing.
People with 20k followers can't wait till they have a 100k.
Those who are single pringles can't wait to get married.
And those who are married can't wait to have kids... the list goes on.
We spend our life wishing and waiting for the next big thing, ignoring what we have in our hands right now. Moses went from a shepherd to the leader of a nation, and it all started with his shepherd's staff. In Exodus 4, the Lord asked him: "what is in your hand?" This simple shepherd staff would go on to have a starring role in one of the biggest miracles ever: parting the Red Sea (Exodus 14:16).
I guess my point is that what you have right now is valuable. As a young person, the strength in your bones is valuable. Enjoy it, use it. And if you are older, you have an indisputable wisdom that comes with experience. Appreciate it, use it.
Enjoy where you are today, my loves, because it doesn't last forever.
There's beauty in every moment that God created because God created it. See it, believe it, trust it.
