I reread all of my old msgs and my old diary entries from jr high and I thank God that I’m not that lil girl anymore.
I read what I used to say and think to myself “I was so young. I was so naive. “
I think to myself that I’ve grown so much.
I’ve grown up. I’ve matured.
And how I look a heck of a lot better than what I used to.
I thank God that I’m not that lil girl anymore.
That I’ve grown more secure in who I am.
Yes I have my days where I lose control, but I always find my way back to where I’m supposed to.
Jesus has helped me. And I don’t care what people label me as. I truly love God for helping me and guiding me through my life as a teenager.
I’m glad I don’t do drugs. I’m glad I don’t smoke or drink or harm myself. I’m glad I’m not pregnant.
I’m glad to know that I’ve made it this far on my own along with God’s help.
Of course I have my ups and downs, but it’s through the downs that I pick myself right up
again and move forward.
God is with me wherever I go.
Ive learned many lessons.
I’ve learned to forgive. And to let go.
Because without God I wouldn’t be here today.
I would be dead. I would have done all of those horrible things. And so much more. But it’s because of God that I’m so pure. I’m pure.
I’m aware of the harmful things out in this world.
I’ve gone through pain and heartbreak. I know what that’s like. I’ve heard and said every cuss word you could even fathom. I’ve seen every explicit thing you could ever name. I’ve done horrible things that no one would ever picture me doing.
But it’s because of God that he has washed away all of what I’ve done.
Some may call it innocence. But I call it God’s mercy.
Because he gives me another chance to be the person he wants me to be.
Yes I’ve changed.
I’m not the lil insecure girl I once was.
I grew up.
For the better :)
