Each reflection this week features a meditation written by teens for other teens. Listen for words of wisdom from another generation.
WHEN I THINK about my future and what the rest of my life will hold, my mind starts going a hundred miles an hour! It’s not that I don’t know what I want to do; it’s that I don’t know which idea I should choose. There are so many opportunities and hopes and wishes floating around in my head that I don’t know what I want to do the most. But I have confidence that God will lead me in the direction that God wants me to go.
—Christy Lee, age 17 (Winston-Salem, North Carolina)
