ADVICE FOR 20 SOMETHINGS


A voice memo by Peter Louis.

Leaving the coffee shop: “I wonder when we’re gonna start that business.”
Waking up to work: “I wonder when I’ll recieve the promotion.”
Hanging out with friends: “I wonder when I’ll find the ‘one.’”
Jumping into a friend’s car: “I wonder when I’ll have a car myself.”
At an ATM: “Man, I wonder when this is gonna change.”

And we can work hard toward the “I wonder”s.

Hustle harder, work longer hours, slide into DMs, look up loans — stress out.

Our desires for more aren’t simple or small, most of our dreams as millenials are fantastic: owning coffee shops, becoming artists, muscians, photographers, designers, influencers. . . all the things that seem like impossibilities.

But these desires aren’t random, not products of coincidence — happenstances of getting “participation awards” or “positive reinforcement.” These desires, we believe, are groans to be who we were meant to be — a generation which changes the world.

In our desire for more, we can lift so much weight upon our shoulders. However, It’s not for us, the world isn’t the weight we are meant to carry — at least not alone.

“Take my yoke upon you, and learn from me, for I am gentle and lowly in heart, and you will find rest for your souls. For my yoke is easy, and my burden is light.” - Jesus. (Mat 11:29-30)

When we’ve spent 2,567,734,879 hours at the coffee shop, baby sitting, working in a cubicle, getting ‘no’s and ‘maybe’s — a gentle and lowly heart can weather those winds and navigate those seas. All the while Jesus pulls the weight along with us, our captain and first mate. He guides us through the seasons and changes, His presence a shelter to our hearts — until we see the new world He’s made through us.
