Reflecting over my first year of college and it is so crazy how much everything has changed.
I have the same major but God’s changed my path. Now I want to go into middle school/high school ministry. Something I have never imagined myself wanting to do. I never felt called to do anything like that, but after this year, being a small group leader I realized that I just wanted to do that all the time. That that would be the most fun and rewarding job of them all!
Something I never thought I would do or even want to do is to stay home for the second part of my college degree. I didn’t even want to stay home for my first half of college and now I plan on being home for the rest of my college career and working and paying for school that way.
All of these changes made me think about Proverbs 16:9 “In their hearts humans plan their course, but the Lord establishes their steps.”
I had all these plans for what I wanted to do and how I was going to get there through my senior year, then it changed. Through my first semester of college, I had this plan on what I wanted to do and how I was going to get there and now, where I am is so different. God’s establishing my steps to get where He wants me to be and that makes this crazy journey so much more fun and less stressful.
When I think about who I was a year ago it’s hard to imagine that I am where I am. This year has flown by and I can’t believe how fast it’s going I feel like just yesterday I was crossing the stage at graduation and now I am finishing my first year of college.
Trusting Him with my steps is hard, but man has it been rewarding!
