The Beginning of the End.

I am trying to get better about writing down my thoughts. Especially since I am beginning my very last semester of college.

Change…



That’s what all of this comes down to is change. I don’t always do great with change, but I am learning and getting better about it. So now here I am about to go into a season of great change. Am I beginning to get a little bit uncomfortable, why yes, yes I am. Is that all okay? Yes, yes it is. It's okay to be uncomfortable with change, because it means that you are allowing God to guide me into deeper waters. It is allowing me to trust him with my whole life.
"It's okay to be uncomfortable with change, because it means that you are allowing God to guide me into deeper waters."
          This brings me to where I am right now. My very last semester of college! This is so surreal. I have been in school for 18 years, and in just four short months I have no more school. There is so much change going on right now. It is mostly good and exciting change, but there is an immense amount of change that comes with graduating, and all the change revolves around the questions that every newly college grad gets asks. 

           The biggest question that I get asked is what are you going to do after? Which is also the hardest question I get asked because ultimately I don’t know. Do I have a plan? Of course I do. Do I have desires? Yes. I know many of you know what my plan is and my desires are. However, in the end I don’t know if any of that will end up happening. Do I believe that my desires are God's desires? Yes, completely. But that also comes with trusting in Him and walking by faith. My entire life could be uprooted in a matter of months and it’s scary and excited all at the same time.
          "Believing your desires are also God's desires comes with trusting in Him and walking by faith."
         God is teaching me how to go through change, how to handle it with grace, hope, and desire to learn more about Him and who He created me to be. I am scared, because I know God is going to bring me to places that make me uncomfortable, and I am so excited because that means that I get to rely more on God and less on myself. Which makes me laugh saying that because I should rely more on God and less on myself in every situation, but when I am comfortable it’s easy to rely on myself.
          "God is teaching me how to go through change, how to handle it with grace, hope, and desire to learn more about Him and who He created me to be."

                 So here is the dare I have given myself, this semester, the next four month I am choosing adventure! I am choosing to go places and do things that make me uncomfortable to draw me closer to Jesus. So stay tuned as I live out my last semester at WJU. I am four months away of being a college graduate. Thank You Jesus!

Goodbye for now
