I was thinking about the future today. I usually try not to do that too often, because the Bible says in Matt. 6:34 not to worry about the future. Sometimes, though, I guess you need to think about it.
What will this life bring to me in the near future? What will I be doing in say, half a year? These are the kinds of questions I was thinking about today. I was prophesied over last Wednesday, and a few things stood out to me with regards to this. I was told to take advantage of the time given to me, and that the next three years would be a great time of spiritual growth for me. I should not worry about things like future relationships, but I should use this time to grow in the Lord.
Honestly, I have no big dreams for the future. I don’t know “what I want to be when I grow up”, if you will. I know that God has called me to greatness, as He does everyone, but I have no idea what that means specifically for me. Right now I think I want to stay in Tallahassee after I graduate, at least for a while. I want to find a job and support myself, but ultimately, I’m waiting to find my purpose. I want to grow in my relationship with God.
I’m tempted to stay in Tally just for the fun of it, to hold onto some sort of “college life” feeling, but I think that’s wrong. Once I graduate, I will not be in college any more. My life will be different. I need to move on from the former things. After high school, I knew needed to move on to a new city, a new college, a new church family. This time, I know I need to move into a new season of life. It may not be moving to a new city, but I will still be in a completely different season than I’m finishing now. God wants me to embrace this new season with confidence, knowing that whatever it brings will be good and for my benefit. He will do everything in His power(that’s a lot, by the way) to help me start fresh.
“Because of the LORD’s great love we are not consumed,
for his compassions never fail.
They are new every morning;
great is your faithfulness.”
