If You Had A Crystal Ball

A long time from now in a galaxy not so far, far away ...

How's that for a dramatic opener? When we think of the future, we usually see it through one of two lenses. Either everything looks all Star-Warsy and futuristic with galactic cars and metal fashion or it all looks kind of blurry—like we have no idea what our future will look like, so we'll simply cross that bridge when we get there.

woman looking at crystal ballEither way, our future will eventually become our present. I can't predict whether hovercrafts will be involved, but I can tell you that if you want to see your future, you should take a hard look at your life right now.

One of the top twenty-five lies identified in the book Lies Young Women Believe is "what I do now doesn't affect me in the future." It made the list because we encountered so many girls who thought that the choices they make today were unconnected to their lives in the future.

Galatians 6:7 says, "Do not be deceived: God is not mocked, for whatever one sows, that he will also reap."

Translation: Today impacts tomorrow.

In Lies Young Women Believe, Nancy Leigh DeMoss and Dannah Gresh write about it this way:

Habits are the result of seemingly insignificant individual choices and acts that you sow when you're twelve, fifteen, or twenty. They can be good or bad. You'll reap what you sow. You're sowing seeds now. What you do with your time, your eating habits, your exercise habits, the way you talk, the way you talk to your parents, the way you treat your friends, the way you spend your money, the way you work, your sleep habits.... These are habits you are developing today.

With that in mind, I'd like you to consider what habits are in your life today that you don't want to be there ten years for now (or twenty or thirty or ...). Specifically, what habits have you developed (or not developed) in your walk with Christ that you'd like to change in the future? Got something in mind? Good! Now I'm going to ask you to do something that may feel a little strange. I want you to write a letter to yourself in the future right here in our comments section. Tell yourself what you'd like to be doing differently in the future. This will serve as a good reminder that today you are practicing for whom you will be tomorrow.

While it's good to think through the future impact of our habits, I also want to point out that the responsibility for changing bad habits doesn't rest all on your shoulders. God is constantly working to make you into a "new creation" that looks more like Him. After you've written a letter to your future self on our blog, write a private letter to God asking Him to shape you into whom He wants you to be tomorrow.

Listen to advice and accept instruction, that you may gain wisdom in the future (Prov. 19:20).

    To my future- when I get to you as the present, I would like to look back at this time and see that my patience and my out bursts of anger would have grown under control. I pray that my life will be honouring to Christ in all things and in all things I would have learned to give thanks instead of running away....

Also I hope you have mastered the strength of living in a house with inconsiderate people,but not complaining about everything they do.

    Dear me,

    How's life gonig for you? Remember when you didn't want to clean your life up, or try to? That probably impacted you a lot.
    Remember when you expected God to just do everything for you? Why did you stop praying, anyway? It's not too late to pray, God wants you back.
    Remember how selfish you were? How it was your way or the highway? It's been affecting you deeply, now. You want to turn back, but don't know if you can.
    Remember what a hypocrite you were, and still are? You always did want to change, but were afraid to repent. Maybe just too lazy to.
    Remember how lazy you were? Where's that gotten you? Don't give me the whole "I just don't want to overwork myself like I used to". I should know that's pointless to say.
    I hope I can change so you can also change.

    Hopefully, your bad habits about being boy-crazy are over otherwise my efforts are good for nothing >:'( !
    <8'D Did you forget about your crush? Or you two eventually started to talk and get closer? Either way, I bet you'll get all teary 2 years in the future when you'll read this. I am 100% sure you'll cry since I always was a crybaby, I wonder if you got stronger and cry less?
    Time passes fast so I bet you'll read this pretty soon...
    Cheer up girl!
    Whatever it is going on there, it is part of God's great plan, I hope you got to talk to God more often and listen to Him more and pray more.
    I hope you got that scholarship you always dreamed of, and I hope you're not such a couch potato like I am! I will do my best to change, otherwise you'll be very embarrassed and disappointed of me :'( .
    Psst, hey ! About the crush part...are you still praying for him? Is your love so undying like you thought at the beginning? Ahaha... don't forget to always trust God, always always! :'D

    I do know that what we do now does affect our futures, and habbits that we have in our teen years will end up being how things are for us when we are adults. While we are a teenager, we are setting our foundation for while we're adults. In the future i imagine things to be the same, i don't imagine big change.

    For me, there used to be things that i did that were bad, but all of that dead weight was dropped off in January of this year. God has changed my heart and i've grown so much in Him! The way i am now, i'm ok with it. I'm a Godly young lady and love to serve Him and others. I'm not much of "education" smart, but i am Bible smart and i have common sense:) I have the talents God gave me and i'm the way He wanted me to be, i wouldn't wanna be any other way:) Through the years i will continue changing and growing in Him, my seed of faith inside me will continue getting bigger and bigger:) Once it has reached it's max for me, i have fulfilled my will, done all that God wanted me to do on Earth, then He will call me home!

    Dear me in ten years,
    I hope you're nicer and more sensitive to other people's feelings. I hope you're less over-sensitive to criticism. I hope you've gotten better at being disciplined about going to bed on time and spending more time reading the Bible and praying. Have you gotten over any of your self-consciousness and have learned to trust God more have a much stronger faith in Him? And I hope you're less of a people-pleaser and less afraid to speak up for the truth even if you might not get liked for it.
    Love,

    I hope you have, first and foremost, overcome some of your major doubts about God, and have learned to walk with Him and treat Him like your best friend. I hope you have gotten over some insecurities and have learned how to better get out of yourself and learn to truly love and bear with people. I hope you did your best with your college and did not cut corners. I hope you got off the stinkin' computer and did something useful with free time, like art and learning your violin, guitar, and piano. I hope you learned how to get up early and go to bed on time. I hope you got in shape and exercise consistently. I hope you learned Spanish and practiced hard so that you could actually talk to people. I hope you learned how to be a better youth leader. I hope you learned how to manage your time. I hope you learned how to have peace and true, infectious joy and are not afraid to witness. I hope you find the life that is truly life. I hope you learn how to give recklessly. I hope you learn how to stop caring so much about boys.
    See you in about 5 years.

    I pray this letter finds you having enjoyed your husband, kids, and life more. Being less stressed out about what turned out to be trivial stuff. I thank God now that He has plucked that angry, resentful root out of you and that you are able to just live every day not worrying about the next and not wasting time being angry or frustrated at the people you love most and who love you/look up to you most. I pray that your children remember you as an outstanding Mom, grounded in the ways of God and always safe to talk to. I pray that you laugh more and more, letting that good joy-laugh fill your belly, rather than the festering irritation that harbored there for so long. I thank God for years' worth of deliverance from self-destruction and ungratefulness. Yes, life is busy, but I would never trade my family for anything - not for more "me" time, for more money, or for a life geared at pleasing myself. Thank You, Father, for your steadfastness and for making me a new creation every day. Here's to the future! :)

    Dear future me,
    I hope you have gotten over your jealousy for that one guy. I hope you are happy for the girl he is with and you're realizing that he is not the type of guy for you anyways.

    Lord willing you have torn down the idol of people-pleasing down. It really tears me up sometimes, so I hope I am changing so that you won't have to deal with it anymore.

    You are out of youth group now. Please remember that you don't need your youth leaders in order to be happy. Be thankful for the time that I get to have with them and the impact they are making on my life now and be willing to let them go now that you are older. They are not your connection to God.

    Stay faithful to God! You are here on earth for Him NOT YOURSELF!

    This is for Brittany: take life one day at a time...Wake up and say "This is the day that God made, and I'm going to rejoice and be glad in it" (Psalm 118:24) Pray that verse and ask Him to help you to live it out... I know how disabling depression and bipolar disorders can be. But God is a mighty God; He's near and He holds your future. "I don't know what the future holds, but I know Who holds the future"...it's a totally cliche quote but sooo true. You just take life one day at a time, worry about your responsibilities just for that day and show yourself some love.

By Gods grace, today was SO SO SO much better! I actually spent real time in prayer and the Word and it was precious! I worked out, I folded clothes, I did normal stuff, ya know!? LOL so today was great! One day at a time, huh Sarah? <3 <3 True in retrospect. Don't know if I could dwell on that when it HURTS so bad tho!!! But I DID want to say THANKYOU to u Sarah for your comment "I know HOW DISABLING depression......can be." I don't know ur story but THANKYOU for the kind understanding instead of ... Everything else u could say.
    Thank you so so much. And Brittany, I'll be praying for you as God brings u to mind. <3 "God hath not given {you} the spirit of fear but of lOVE and of pOWER and of a SOUND MIND!!!!!!!" (That's in 2nd Timothy)

    Dear future which is now present,
    Lets go over the checklist as follows:

    1. Should be well over one boy that consumed your life for many years. There are better more worthy men that will treat you with respect and love. No more time and emotion will be wasted on this one.

    2. Your skin scratching problem will only be a distant memory. Scars will fade.

    3. Success in whatever you choose to do! Even multiple things!

    4. Recognition from friends and family, and this time I'm the one supporting and helping them.

    5. Be sure to have taken on a person in need of help. Offer your knowledge on life and help them grow and get out of a bad situation.

    6. Stop worrying about the future!! Enjoy life!!!

    7. Depression problem is under control and you accomplish so much now.

    8. Making more time for you has helped your skin clear and de-stressed you.

    Good job and keep it up.

    I have many flaws that I believe I can fix. But the one that I honestly cannot stand and that I'm scared might get me in trouble one day is this: I have to learn to hold my tongue. You know what I'm talking about? I can talk your ear off! Most of the time, I don't really say bad things, but I have to be able to think before I speak. I have said things in the past that wasn't that bad, but I'm not proud of it. So, I want to be able to hold my tongue. Also, to control my lust. I have a hard time keeping my mind off guys.

I hope you stuck to not dating in high school, I hope you kept in touch with your friends even when you graduated, I hope you kept your grades. But I hope you grew too. I hope you learned to make time for God. I hope you learned the importance of trust and prayer. I hope you read your bible more than your favorite blog. Anyways, Till later,

    How is your relationship with God? Have you grown, or is it the same? Have you been focused on him or other things? If you have been focusing on other things more than you have been focusing on God, then those things have become your idols. God is supposed to be your number one! These struggles you've faced throughout your life are because you are becoming stronger whether its to help somebody else, or learn for yourself. People who have been making fun or you because of your beliefs as a Christian, don't let them bring you down. God will protect and fight for you as long as you trust what he's doing. Always trust! Don't feel sorry for yourself, it's them you should feel sorry for because they don't have the relationship you have. Pray God will open their eyes and show what they're missing out on, and that they can have it too! Forgive them, Jesus was persecuted and if you've excepted then, you will be too because he lives in you! But God says to forgive them and offer what you have. Show love just as he did. Are you still holding onto the relationships you have had? Let them all go! God will provide somebody for you in his timing! And if I'm looking back at this when I'm much much older, I pray God has already found a man for me and I would be with him because of my dedication in his timing. And if not, then I will continue to pray and serve him!

    Did you stop worrying so much yet?
    If not, I really hope it isn't over the petty things you constantly worry about now. You probably didn't even get a job in the field you majored in during college. God's plans will prevail.
    Remember to live in the here & now, and that by doing that, you will have the ability to affect lives like you want to. God gives you opportunities every day to make a difference, but you have to find them and take them, as little as they may be, if you prove yourself worthy with little, he will entrust you will more. Always be real with people, and remember to embrace Philos. Agape, and Storge. Do not submit to Eros... for your heart is Gods. :) and Be GRATEFUL for even the most simplistic things.

    on Monday, November 26, 2012 at 1:18 am
    Dear Linsay,
    Remember all those summers at camp when you drew close to God and felt his fire burning, and you promised yourself to him? And remember how after every one of those weeks, you went back to your old habits; knowing what was right, but knowing what was easier? Remember that? And that summer before 9th grade when you started feeling God for real. Instead of "My Lord", the one you must obey to be christian, he became "daddy" and a friend. He was there to protect you and love you and for once in your life you felt the complete joy you'd been searching for all your life. It was wonderful, having a love like that, wasn't it?
    But High School soon got to you and all your prayers to Him to stay faithful failed you. It wasn't God that failed you, it was you that failed God. So tell me, Future Me, did you keep that promise to "pick up Jesus when you graduate"? You always knew that was stupid. Did you get knocked up, did you get in with the wrong crowd? Try to remember that summer you spent so preciously with your loved one. Remember that he's all that satisfies, and if you haven't already, come back to the one who wants to set you free of all your bitterness and hatred. You know the truth from all the lies you're pretending to believe. It may be hard, but Jesus is worth it. Get back on the right path, Linsay

    Hey girl!

    So, I don't know where you are right now. I just know where I am. God is the biggest part of my life right now. He's everything to me. I read my Bible about twenty times throughout the day, do you still do that? If not, you need to. There's never going to be anyone there for you like God is. He wants you to talk to Him. You need to talk to Him. I know you; you're probably going to stray from God a thousand times. You're going to feel like you failed Him. But He'll always take you back, just go ahead and ask! He'll forgive you. Even if it seems like you've let Him go, He's never let you go. Just go running back to Him and He's there with open arms.

    I have no idea what's going on in your life right now, but whatever it is, what I've said will apply. Whatever challenge you're going through right now, it's not too difficult for you. God would never give you anything you can't handle. You can do all things through Him. Ask Him for His guidance, He'll give it to you.

    A relationship with God is worth the troubles of this life. A relationship with God is the most precious thing you can have in life, so don't take it for granted.

    You know exactly what I'm saying, don't you? He's working in your heart right now, isn't He? Of course He is. Listen to what He has to say. Follow Him. He'll lead you. My past and present are confusing; I bet my future is, too. Well, God is there. He'll lead you down the right path, even if you're confused beyond comprehension. Reach out to Him. He is there. He is. He will open your eyes. He will teach you. Somehow, this pain will be turned into you being drawn closer to Him. That's pretty awesome, isn't it?

    I just felt the need to remind you of all of those things because no doubt, you've forgotten. I know you. You get obsessed with things of this world. Whether it's classes or people or the Internet or whatever. I'm sure things aren't much different in the future.

    You take your eyes off of God when you get scared. That's who you are. But it's okay. God forgives you. It's something you need to work on. I'm going to work on it right now and I hope you do, too. We can get through this together; you, me, and God. :)

    Like I said, God's always there even when you reject Him. Don't reject Him any more. You need Him. Trust me.

    Love you, girl.

    Dear future me,

    How are you now? I'm sure you're superwoman now, i know you have dealt with prayerlessness and your fear of backsliding. I'm sure you're a role model to every one in Africa now. I'm sure you're doing great exploits for Christ. How's the biotech company? Have you really imbibed patience now?
    How are your employees? Do you still giggle while having a conversation with the Holy Spirit? How's your husband? He must be so handsome and God-fearing.... I'm learning submission now, so I'm sure you don't have a problem with that?
    Don't ever forget to give, don't forget that your life is like a drink offering and must be poured out. Don't forget the homeless children you planned to take care of.

    Much love,
    2013 you.

    I have become lazy with my studies; I need so much motivation to concentrate on completing my assignments.

    This is something which I want to change because if I continue like this I know that nothing will change.

    See you in six months

    It's so sad to go on youtube and see so many great singers who are yet to be discovered. I myself am dying to be a Broadway singer, but I know it's a job that required a lot of luck. But I've heard that when you're in show-biz stuff you're so busy that there is no room for a back-up plan in case it doesn't work out. I really worry if this Broadway dream won't cause me to starve, because I wasn't lucky. Is doing this whole show- biz thing too risky?

    Dear Future

    Will I be able to look back on the past (my current present) and be proud of decisions I made since? Have I grown into real womanhood?
    I hope that you are careful with what you do, do you take care of your temple? Please eat healthy, don't spend as much time online, outside of the real world, as I do now. Sleep well, wake up early, you know you're a morning person. Go see God's nature or enjoy His works wherever you are!
    Please have patience with others, pray daily, for yourself and others, please take care of those around you. And above all, I hope you have JOY! Jesus first, Others second, You last. Practice humbleness.
    I hope that You. You right now are a Godly woman, living a life worth living and a live to be remembered as an example, great or small.
    Your past self, 2013

    Dear Future, I really want to be in such a better relationship with Jesus. I want to be able to not be negative and stand up for others. I hope I am more of a leader that loves God so much! I also hope I will stay pure!

    Its like you learn my thoughts! You appear to understand a lot approximately this, such as you wrote the e book in it or something. I feel that you can do with some p.c. to power the message house a bit, however instead of that, this is great blog. A fantastic read. I'll certainly be back.
