Back in the day ... long before texting, snaps, and social media drama ... this was a thing.
Passing notes via a best friend who was related to someone who once liked someone else but now was BFF's with your crush of the month. And then waiting, waiting, waiting for the note to get passed back to you with the answer that was sure to either crush you or seal your relationship destiny with the love of your 13-yr-old life.
This. Was. Torture.
High school years were not much better. No notes but rather, spoken words said to a BFF who shared with the head cheerleader who then told a classmate who was related to someone who used to live acoss the street and now shares a chair next to you in Biology class. "He likes you but thinks you are too ______." Well, you fill in the blank.
Those days are just a blip in the past. And yet...I can still recall the brief moments of elation and all the moments of deflation. Adolescent years are tough.
In my devotion time this morning, this comment caught my attention and had me spiral down the rabbit hole to my adolescent years. "Ask God how he feels about you and He will tell you!"
Here we go again... 40+ years later and still the same emotions of the waiting, waiting, waiting.
I just couldn't do it.
And yet...I did.
If this sounds familiarly painful, know you are not alone. Ask the question and pass the note to God.
His reply just might surprise you.
(Spoiler alert...He REALLY likes you. I promise. )
