I Would Tell Her This

“But seek first the kingdom of God and His righteousness…” Matthew 6:33a.

SHOULD I HAVE A DAUGHTER ONE DAY, I WOULD TELL HER THIS

You are never stuck.

Pretty is not the best thing you can be.

You can be scared and brave at the same time.

He has feelings too.

Thank you cards matter. Make sure you handwrite them.

Irreparably broken is a misnomer. Grace can heal things you can’t even fathom.

Your curly hair is a gift.

Emotional is not a dirty word.

Read your Bible every day. God will meet you there.

Be informed before you’re opinionated.

Know when to let go.

Know when to hold on.

Know when to let go again.

You should order the iced coffee with whipped cream every once in a while.

Growing seasons are often painful, but they yield much fruit.

You’re worth holding the door for.

You’re not above holding the door for someone else.

If you can’t tell me about something, you probably shouldn’t be doing it.

Merely saying “mhm” is no way to sustain a conversation.

Laughter is good for you.

Two steps forward, one step back is still progress.

Learn what makes another person feel loved. Do that.

Take your vocations seriously. Even your simplest daily tasks can be done for the glory of God.

Be an encourager.

Have convictions about things that matter.

Hard work in any capacity is something to be proud of.

You shouldn’t settle.

Reaching a compromise is not the same as settling.

Use a daily planner.

I love you.
