As I mentioned in my first blog, being a recent graduate is not a easy task.....No longer can you get by on the excuse that "I'm a college Student". Instead, you are now expected to do something with your life. Your expected to have a good job and some collateral of your own, your expected to have more......This was a part of my plan. Going to school should have opened quite a few oppurtunities for me. Instead, I am either overqualified educationally but under-qualified work-wise. The real world is rough!
After school I was supposed to have a good job (in my field I might add) and I should also be saving for my own house. Neither of these plans have come through. I had my times of crying and feeling depressed about the seemingly purposelessness of my life.......However God turned on the light in a certain compartment of my brain that told me that I should trust Him. So I decided that I will no longer worry about my future for He said in Jeremiah 29:11 "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'll trust his word.
Everyone says everything happens for a reason so I decided that I'll take this time to better myself. I decided to read my bible more, pray more, build a better relationship with God. He said " But seek first His kingdom and His righteousness, and all these things will be given to you as well." (Matthew 6:33) I am on my journey of testing this hypothesis. I'll let you know how it goes.
Life has given me some struggles, I've had so bad days, but when I look back at all I've been through. The struggle doesn't feel so bad anymore. So I encourage you to stay strong. Hold on! Your breakthrough is right there! Just wait for it...
