Just Because You Are Young

Just because you are young, that doesn’t mean that you can’t make a difference. You can make a difference.

Just because you are young, that doesn’t mean that you can’t fulfill God’s plan for your life. You can fulfill God’s plan for your life.

Just because you are young, that doesn’t mean that you can’t do something big. You can do something big.

When the idea for Hashtag Encourage came to me, I had no idea what it would look like, what I would to further this idea, or anything. I just knew that I was young and that I can make a difference.

“Don’t let anyone think less of you because you are young. Be an example to all believers in what you say, in the way you live, in your love, your faith, and your purity.” 1 Timothy 4:12

This verse is so important. Don’t let anyone think less, take advantage or set low standards to what you can accomplish. Prove them wrong, show them that you can do great things; but show it through what you say, through the way you live and your actions, through the way you love others around you, through your faith in God, and through your purity. Let’s break it down and see how we can be an example.

Through your words:

“Do not let any unwholesome talk come out of your mouths, but only what is helpful for building others up according to their needs, that it may benefit those who listen.” Ephesians 4:29

Speak LIFE into the people around you, encourage and lift each other up. You never know what someone is going through and you never know how much your compliment or criticism could affect someone’s day. Magnify their strengths, not their weaknesses. You can make such a huge difference by simply being positive. Your positivity will spark in another heart and then to another and another…

Through your actions/love:

There are so many things that you can do right now, to make a difference in someone’s life. You can volunteer somewhere that is in need {a church, a school, a dog shelter}, you can help a neighbor with their groceries. By simply smiling at someone in the grocery store, or holding the door for a stranger. Small acts of kindness are what matters the most. When you put your heart into something, big or small, you have the possibility to make such a huge difference. By taking a little bit of time out of your busy schedule to go out of the way for the benefit of others can spread and show so much love!

Through your faith:

  • complete trust or confidence in someone or something.

Have big faith! Pray bold prayers! Tell your mountains to move! Always let your faith be bigger than any fears & doubts. Faith is letting go and letting God guide your steps. It can be hard to give everything to Him but if we have faith and trust that God has a plan, everything will be alright.

Through your purity:

Though we are human and can’t help but stumble, that doesn’t give us a free pass to sin all we want. We should always set a good example to others by showing them what it looks like when you have a relationship with the Lord. Ask for forgiveness, be the best version of you that you can be. Practice what you preach. Live an authentic life. My mom would always say that it doesn’t matter if you can talk the talk, what matters is if you’re walking the walk

You are beautiful, you are amazing & you are destined for greatness.

God has big plans for you, you can make a difference, but at the end of the day, it’s your choice. Everything in life is a choice and you get to choose how it goes. Every day is a different page of your life, so make sure to make it a good story, full of encouragement, good memories, and God’s love.
