Dear Future Child

Dear Future Child,

Life is not easy, you are going to get kicked in every direction.

You will get lost, you will get confused, and you will not know what to do.

The fact of life is, it is not if a disaster will occur, but when will it occur.

I promise you, there will be adversity, there will be failure, and there will be pain.

But I tell you this, you must not fear, you must not cower, you must not cry.

This will do nothing for you, but what will help you is hope, faith, and action.

When times get bad, always lean toward God. God has a plan for you.

He will lead you beside still waters, and carry you when you are weak and weary.

Turn not to sin and hatred, but to love and hope.

If there is one way to live your life, it is to embrace the faith.

Embrace the fact that God is real, that he is there, and that he will heal you.
