Intellectual and Spiritual Changes

Picture
When you go through puberty you begin to think like an adult, so you are prepared to take on the world when you leave your mum and dad. You start to question things that you never even thought about before. You start to develop critical thinking skills and learn to predict the consequences of your actions. You stop seeing things in black and white and begin to answer questions that have no 'right' answer. This new ability to question things may lead to arguments with your parents. Although you may believe that your ideas are correct, but make sure not to fight with your parents about it.

Part of this may include you beginning to question your religion. You may even begin to question whether there is a god or not. This is a normal part of growing up and not something to worry about and if you end up feeling that you don't believe, that's your decision and yours alone. 

A Bible Verse For When You Are In Doubt


Hebrew 11: 1-4 and 39
Now faith is confidence in what we hope for and assurance about what we do not see. This is what the ancients were commended for. By faith we understand that the universe was formed at God’s command, so that what is seen was not made out of what was visible.

By faith Abel brought God a better offering than Cain did. By faith he was commended as righteous, when God spoke well of his offerings. And by faith Abel still speaks, even though he is dead.

By faith Enoch was taken from this life, so that he did not experience death: “He could not be found, because God had taken him away.” For before he was taken, he was commended as one who pleased God. 6 And without faith it is impossible to please God, because anyone who comes to him must believe that he exists and that he rewards those who earnestly seek him. 

These were all commended for their faith, yet none of them received what had been promised, since God had planned something better for us so that only together with us would they be made perfect.
