When I first started writing & teaching, I really struggled. It wasn't that I wasn't sure of my faith. I was. I will tell you - that one night, the one explanation - everything just clicked for me, and I haven't seriously doubted my surrender to Christ ever since.
But, I will tell you, when I first started stepping out in faith and reaching out to others, I struggled. I kept thinking...."But, I am so young" (relatively, mind you - young as in - I'm not old enough to be an "elder")
However, God doesn't care how old we are, we can still be an instrument in His great hands. He has a purpose for each of us - and we must just follow let go of our "hangups" and excuses, and simply follow His lead.
"Do not say, 'I am a youth,' for you shall go to all to whom I send you, and whatever I command you, you shall speak."
~Jeremiah 1:7 (NKJV)
Yes, I am younger than some people who teach and write. however, I am not the youngest - and my age shouldn't matter - I didn't realize it, but, I was using it as an excuse, as a crutch. I simply needed to go to all the Lord sends me and speak whatever He commands, and so do you. Don't let anything stop you from following wherever the Lord sends you!

Your comment surprised me... you are certainly older than David when he was chosen, than many others when they first received the word and started proclaiming it - hah! Too young indeed! Not in HIS eyes! Keep it up!
