The first piece of advice I would give is to start memorizing scripture and cling to His word. Recently I’ve been memorizing Psalm 63. The first half of the Psalm reads, Oh God, You are my God, earnestly I seek you; my soul thirst for you, my flesh faints for you as in a dry and weary land where there is no water. So I have looked upon you in the sanctuary, beholding your power and glory. Because your steadfast love is better than life, my lips shall praise you. I will bless you as long as I live, my mouth will praise you with joyful lips. My soul will be satisfied as with fat and rich food when I remember you upon my bed and meditate on you in the watches of the night. My soul clings to you; your right hand upholds me.
The harder it is to memorize, the more you are required to meditate on the words—I have found in my life that sometimes God does that because I need the extra meditation time! The time is transformative.
Whatever season of life you are in, cling to Christ with your heart, soul, mind, and emotions. Maybe because I have young grandbabies, the picture He gives me in my mind whenever I think of those verses is of a baby wrapping their arms around their mother’s neck and how the mom holds them up with her hand. That’s the picture I have of God doing for me.
He has called us to Himself for Himself and everything else is peripheral. If we can get that, and believe me I’m saying this to myself, then we will have everything we need in life. I have to remind myself that knowing him is the best gift in life we can possess and the best gift we can share. When I get to see Him face to face, I want to behold Him as a beloved. I don’t want Him to be some stranger.
Lastly, I would say your life is going to be very adventurous and you’re going to do things you never thought you could do. You don’t have to dream them up because God will do that for you, and He will be with you every step of the way.
