I have started several things for you, Lennae, but each time they for some reason got deleted. Hmm. I hope this can encourage someone!

I’ve been struggling recently in simply trusting God. I’m in my senior year, one semester left to go, and I’ve still not received direction from God on where He wants me to go from here. The future has been preying on my mind, rearing it’s head in the problematic question “so what are you going to do after you graduate?” that people are so fond of asking. It’s nothing short of humbling for me to reply “I’m not sure yet…”. I can just see their eyebrows raise, and am sure they’re thinking “well…she’s either lazy or just plain stupid.” haha, ok, so maybe it’s not that extreme, but the disapproval is easy to read.

I want to trust God fully, and be content in this last stage of…well, childhood, really. I want to enjoy it, I want to learn from it, and I want to use it, as there will never be a time like this in any other part of my life. Paul’s statement “I have learned in any circumstance to be content” has challenged me to find my fulfillment and security in Christ, and not in the flicker of a life that has been entrusted to me. God has written out His plan for me, and for now…I’ll wait.

God bless :]
