Do you ever have those days when you just don't know where your life is headed?
I've been having quite a few of those days recently. As I watch many of my friends land jobs, get married, and start new chapters in their lives, I can't help but feel I'm stuck in an old chapter, desperately trying to turn the page. As much as I try to squash it, that little voice in my head sometimes says, why don't I deserve those things? When is it my turn?
I'm not a very patient person, and I'm ready to move on.
But then again, change terrifies me.
As I move towards my 25th birthday, graduation, and a job, part of me wants to dig in my heels because I can't see what is around the bend. But another part of me wants to plunge forward, emerging as a new - and hopefully wiser - person.
During these days of doubt - and sometimes sadness - I've turned to one Bible verse:
"For I know the plans I have for you," declares the Lord, "plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future."
I trust that God has my future in His hands, and I need to have patience in knowing that these things will come in His time, not mine.
"Then you will call upon me and come and pray to me, and I will listen to you. You will seek me and find me when you seek me with all your heart."
I hope everyone has a beautiful Sunday!
