Dear Younger Me

Updated: Feb 14


It’s no shocker for me to say the main way I connect with God is through music (Well, duh!!). The music coupled with the lyrics sink into me and stay with me giving me ideas to think about during the day (Phil 4:8) and help me figure out or simply apply scripture (Heb 4:12, 2 Cor 10:5). The lyrics that zinged me the other day were from Mercy Me’s "Dear Younger Me" (Do you know Bart Millard’s story behind writing this song? Super easy to find if you google it.):

“If I knew then what I know now condemnation would’ve had no power"

“My joy my pain would’ve never been my worth”

“Dear younger me, it’s not your fault. You were never meant to carry this beyond the cross”
