I am at a crossroads in my life. I will be starting my freshman year of college very soon.
For the past month or so, I’ve been really excited about it, but also very nervous. The rest of my life will be determined, to an extent, by what I do during the next four years. What should I major in? What kind of profession do I want? There are so many question marks in my future. Understandably, this has made me uneasy.
But today was the culmination of all my reflection. Today I feel a lot of joy about all this uncertainty. This is an opportunity to grow in my faith. All I need to do is place my future in God’s hands. He will guide me. This is easier said than done; I am a control freak like most human beings are. But I just need to let it all go and give myself to God.
Gosh, I’m excited! God has a plan for everyone, and I’m excited to find out what’s in store for me! Through the good and the bad, God will be there for me. ❤
Fortunately, my college also has a very active Catholic Newman Center, which factored into my choosing of this school.
Here's to a joy-filled four years!
