I’m a few years older than the last time I offered advice (A Little Advice), and while I still don’t feel like I can tell you all that several more years could tell you, I do think I can tell you more than before.
Get the truth, the whole truth, and nothing but the truth. Learn and know it inside and out. Know how to tell it to others respectfully and with love.
Seek God’s best. Strive for all that He calls you to. Learn the difference between what is simply good or better and what is truly best.
The best decisions are often the hardest ones, but God will give you peace if you honor Him with the right choice.
If you can’t handle a little bit, you’re not going to be able to handle a lot. If you can be responsible and consistent with what you have, then you can graduate to bigger responsibilities.
Sometimes faithfulness isn’t a monumental effort all at once, often it is the constant, persistent plodding towards a goal.
Keep learning new things, not just for your brain, but for the new lessons God can teach you through new knowledge.
It takes a village to raise a child, but just because you’re grown doesn’t mean you don’t still need the village. Loving family and friends are there for a reason. You’re allowed to ask for help, and sometimes you really should ask for help. People are allowed to offer you help, and sometimes you really should accept the help. And remember, you’re part of the village, too. You can help someone else.
Sometimes people don’t know you need help until you ask. Sometimes people don’t know how to help you until you tell them what you need. Sometimes offering to help someone is how to find out that they need help and what kind.
If God says no, that means no. If God says yes, that means yes. If God says wait, that means wait.
Uncomfortable conversations wouldn’t make you so uncomfortable if they weren’t important. Make some time to have those conversations. Sometimes you can clear everything up at once, sometimes you might have to have a conversation in parts over time, but make sure you communicate.
