Everything in my life is currently changing. I graduate high school in a few days. Although it is a day I am and have been looking forward to for years, I am nervous beyond belief. Along with all the excitement comes deadlines and change.
I move to an island to work at a Christian camp 10 days after I graduate. I feel like I am leaving my entire world behind. When I get home, most of my friends are heading off to great Christian colleges while I stay for my fourth year at my community college.
Most of the changes are not bad, but in fact good! But, they are changing! I never thought that I would be one of those cliche people who had to work through change and even sulk through it. It is much scarier than I ever thought it would be. So much is happening in such a short amount of time. At this point in time, I am not really sure what to say. I don’t think that I have really handled the change very gracefully. I do have some encouragement, however. If the winds of change are currently engulfing you in a tornado, here is what I would say to you.
Darling, you will make it through this. This change may test you. This change may bend you. But this change will not break you. Allow God to be your strength and ever-present help in times of need. Stop pushing Him away. Allow Him to bestow His love and grace upon you and fill you with his joy and peace. You mean the world to Him and that’s all that really matters. HE will never leave you or desert you like many humans. His plan is flawless. Trust the process and don’t rush ahead of God. You are loved and treasured. You don’t have to lay up your treasures here on earth. This earth and everything in it is temporary. Your soul is not. Feed your soul during this time and rely on God for the rest. Have faith dear one.<3
You know, if someone would have told me this a few weeks ago, I could have saved a lot of heartbreak and tears. Our God is an amazing God!
Have a beautiful day! xoxo ❤ ❤ ❤
