I have always been told that I am mature in my thinking and writing. And for this I am sorry because I might have made some of you think that I am older than I really am. But the point in me writing this post if for you to learn a tiny bit more about me. So here goes:
I am in my Freshman year of high school. I am only 14. I'm sorry if I made you think that I was older, but to be completely honest, that was kinda' what I was going for. I wanted people to think that I was a young adult so that maybe I could connect with a wider range of ages. In the world we live in today, kids aren't really looked to for advice. We are more so looked down upon as inexperienced at life because we haven't lived as long as everyone else. (What's funny about this is that the oldest generation isn't always looked to as wise either, but merely "stuck in the old ways". Which I think is really ironic. It's like the world can't make up its mind.)
Since about fourth grade, many people have been telling me that I have the writing ability of someone much older which is why I decided to create this blog. I thought that since so many people believed that I was good, I should use my ability for God somehow. I wasn't very sure about the idea of a blog at first, but then I saw a Weebly commercial. It was on my mind for the longest time until finally I asked my mom about it. And Ta Da! Here is the outcome.
Anyways, back to being only 14. I thought that I would have to tell you my age sooner or later because the Bible say that lying is wrong and I agree. Since deceiving falls in the same category of lying in my book. It was definite. I had to tell you. To explain this more, when I have said "I remember a time in high school or middle school", I was really saying is "I remember a day between two years ago and today."
To be honest, again, the thought of posting this is really scary. I don't know how you guys are going to react. I don't know if you are going to start ignoring my blog or if you are going to blow off everything that I have wrote before. I really have no clue. Maybe you are going to want to read it more than you did before. But one verse that I do really like to use is 1 Timothy 4:12. This is where Paul is telling Timothy not to let people look down on him because he is young. I like this verse because I am young and I want to be able to use my gifts for God now. Not later in life when I am older. I don't want to wait. And so I hope that you continue to read my blog without judging me based on my age.
Thank you for understanding.
