“Dear Younger Me”

As we look back upon our pasts and the many things that we would change,
there is one thing that we need to remember…
all that we have gone through has made us who we are today.

And though we’ve suffered abuse, abandonment, rejection,
and all the negative things that brought brokenness to our lives…
it is in this state of brokenness that we finally let God have His way.

Now we could all write ourselves a letter entitled “Dear Younger Me”
but remember that you are “who you were meant to be”…
and God is not not surprised by anything we do or say.

“Dear Younger Me” by Mercy Me

Dear younger me
Where do I start
If I could tell you everything that I have learned so far
Then you could be
One step ahead
Of all the painful memories still running through my head
I wonder how many different things would be
Dear younger me

Dear younger me
I cannot decide
Do I give some speech about how to get the most out of your life
Or do I go deep
And try to change
The choices that you’ll make ‘cause they’re choices that made me
Even though I love this crazy life
Sometimes I wish it was a smoother ride
Dear younger me

If I knew then what I know now
Condemnation would’ve had no power
My joy my pain would’ve never been my worth
If I knew then what I know now
Would’ve not been hard to figure out
What I would’ve changed if I had heard

Dear younger me
It’s not your fault
You were never meant to carry this beyond the cross
Dear younger me

You are holy
You are righteous
You are one of the redeemed
Set apart
A brand new heart
You are free indeed

Every mountain every valley
Through each heartache you will see
Every moment brings you closer
To who you were meant to be
Dear younger me
