We Could Soar On Wings Like Eagles

It hurts me to watch teenagers with the attitude of " You only live once." "Come on loosen up, stop worrying, have fun for once." The students who engage themselves in parties every weekend. The people who have no self respect and who started off saying they would never harm themselves in those ways. They believe that if they take part in these activities they are living their life to its fullest and having fun, but truly- they aren't. I have sat and watched a close friend become distant, who has become someone I hardly recognize. An individual who takes pride in making poor decisions every weekend and then comes to school bragging about it. And I can honestly say one of the hardest things is to sit and watch one of your best friends harm themselves. The problem is that people around me try to explain to me "Everyone goes through a party stage." "This is the real world, stop worrying about everyone so much, live your own life." Yes, we live in a fallen, evil world, but that doesn't mean we have to follow the ways of the world. One thing I wish I could explain to every teenager on this earth is that living your life to the fullest- is something you can only accomplish while walking with Jesus Christ. Only He can give you the satisfaction of living the most miraculous and joyful plan of all. A plan to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future. (Jeremiah 29:11) Teenagers worry that if they have a close relationship with God that they won't be able to have any fun. But you are completely incorrect if you believe in that statement. Following God is the best decision you could ever make. He gives you the greatest joy, love, and fulfillment. He works and speaks through you in unspeakable ways and the greatest filling is knowing that you are being apart of God working in someone else's life. If each of us would put all of our hope in God, we could be part of something so much greater. We could even soar on wings like eagles. (Isaiah 40:31)
