Who knew that Winnie the Pooh could have such wise words of encouragement – not bad for a teddy bear! Whether they originated with him or were something Christopher Robin said that Pooh reiterated, they still have an important meaning.
Here’s the quote, “Promise me you’ll always remember: you’re braver than you believe, stronger than you seem, and smarter than you think.”
As I think of young people, and some older people graduating in this season, those words are ones I want YOU to remember.
The future is like a blank canvas that you get to paint on with your true colors. Sometimes you may not be quite sure what those colors are. Sometimes fear causes you to forget, sometimes you feel weak compared to the challenges you face. Sometimes you feel like others must be way smarter than you are.
One thing you can be sure of is that God is always WITH you and FOR you – and He loves you MORE THAN YOU KNOW!
You are LOVED more than you know!
If you know that one thing, you will face the future with confidence, courage, strength and clarity of thought.
I have a couple of special offers for those of you who are graduating and for those who would like to give your grads something more personal than a check or a gift card.
