Like all stories, the exposition, climax, resolution, and everything in between are essential. And that’s definitely a goal of mine, I want to take you through each area of these different stories, even if it takes a few parts to tell it.
What if all eyes are on me just to see me fail?
Throughout all four years of high school, I was involved in what was called a “d-group”, short for discipleship group. To sum it all up in one sentence, in our group of ladies we would learn about God and how to apply His Word to our lives.
On one of our last days, we were told to pick a word we wanted to focus on for our next year and to find a bible verse that relates.
My word is TRUST and my bible verses reads,
“For my thoughts are not your thoughts, neither are your ways my ways,” declares the Lord. “As the heavens are higher than the earth, so are my ways higher than your ways and my thoughts than your thoughts.”
As much as I’m overwhelmed and stressed, this is what I need to do right now. Trust Him. Not necessarily trust that He is going to get me through these classes with a high GPA and make me super successful in the future, but trust His plan even when things don’t go as expected. Trust Him even when I face adversity.
Even though I like to believe that I know what’s best, I really don’t. Although I love to convince myself that I know the right answer, I really don’t.
His ways are much higher than mine and that’s something I need to remind myself of.
I can’t tell you that after these two posts, that I’ll feel perfectly fine about college. I start on the 27th and there is definitely still a lot of fear and doubt. But if trust is my word, what better time to practice it than now?
It’s going to be a long journey, no doubt about it, but thank you to those who are going to stick by me as we learn to live through faith & grace.
