June 1, 2010 I published the last issue (at least for a while) of Girl Talk my teen girl magazine. Since this blog was originally designed for the purpose of publishing weekly devotions for the magazine and later the magazine itself I decided to create another blog that isn’t connected to Girl Talk.

I’ll probably still publish book reviews or other items here now and again but you’ll more often find me at Trusting Him with Today. I hope you’ll stop by

The Days of Youth

Remember your Creator in the days of your youth,…
Ecclesiastes 12:1

In spite of the fact that I’m no longer considered a youth I still think of myself as young, some days anyway. However, there are days (usually when I try to complete one hundred different tasks) when the reality hits me that I’m no longer a teenager. The level of energy and ability to go like the energizer bunny isn’t always there anymore,*big sigh* .

This is why Solomon encourages us to remember God and find him while we are yet young. When you are young you are in the prime of your life, full of energy and excitement. Why not use that for God? Instead of going your own way in your teens and early adult years why not go God’s way? Channel some of that excitement and energy that seem to be synonymous with youth into building God’s kingdom. Give God the best you have to offer, your heart, yourself, your youth…

I promise that if you will give these things to God now that you’ll find the rest of your life to be so much richer. You’ll never look book at your teen years and say I’m sorry I gave my life to God so soon. I wish I had waited and accepted him later in life. Most people I’ve encountered who gave their hearts to God whatever the age usually say, I wish I had done it sooner.
