Where is my youth?

Young people, it’s wonderful to be young! Enjoy every minute of it. Do everything you want to do; take it all in. But remember that you must give an account to God for everything you do. So refuse to worry, and keep your body healthy. But remember that youth, with a whole life before you, is meaningless.

— Ecclesiastes 11:9-10 NLT

It sure was good to be young once, but now I’m responsible for young people.  I’m trying my best to give them all the information that they are wilking to retain.  Ultimately, it is up to them to gather all they can before its to late.  Man, if I would have known all this then.  I would have made better decisions about my future.  God knows where He placed us on the board.  We are the ones trying to move ourselves, when He is in control of all the game pieces including the devil.  Wisdom comes with age they say, and I happen to believe it.  Even if what you learned during your journey is all together diferent than what I had received.  Everyone doesnt learn on the same pace or with the same teaching methods.  You have to give each child their own lessons.  Even if your methods are the same, they still need their one on one.  It was good to be young and strong back then.  Now we associate strength with stubborn.  Instead of holding on, we complain about having to endure.  As children we donit see the head aches of life.  Once we make it to adult status we get instant replays.  This Scripture is fornthose youth who ned to relax and enjoy being young for now.  The time will soon come when we will have to stand uproght and be a different protector for our families.

Do not waste your youth on easy get quick schems or mischevious actions that will punish the adult you will become one day.  There is nothing like having to answer for childish antics that is done by an inexperienced person who doesn care about consequences.  So, if we can say anything you are willing to hear.  

Dont let the young you punish the old you.  Give yourself a life and have fun playing tag or singing with your friends on the stoop.  Whatever you do, dont allow yourself to be awakened to adult status until it is your time to handle it.
