There comes a time in one’s college career when Senior year hits and the questions begin to arise as to just what you’re going to do for the rest of your life. Try as I might, I can’t seem to answer this question at the moment.
I’ve talked on here so many times about how we need to trust in God’s plan for our lives and believe that he has good intentions for us. But right now I think there’s more than just lack of trust that’s hampering my view of my future.
I have this innate desire to excel. I am driven to find my niche and be the best that I can in that area. But what exactly does that look like for me? I have so many passions from A to Z that it seems impossible to melt down into one dream career.
Thankfully, I have parents that have spoken destiny into me since i’ve been a little girl. Even when I’m feeling unsure and uncertain about what my future is going to look like, they have complete confidence in me.
My dad, being the quote king that he is, emailed me a list of goodness to help me through my mid-week breakdown. This one in particular spoke to me in profound ways:
“People are never more insecure than when they become obsessed with their fears at the expense of their dreams.” Norman Cousins
Instead of focusing on my fears and uncertainty, I need to dream. I may not know the exact path I’ll be taking, but I believe that I serve a God who opens doors when they need to be opened. There are endless opportunities in this world, and so many things to go and do and see. So if you ask me what I’ll be doing after graduation next December I may list off 50 things, and I’m perfectly okay with that.
