One week ago today I started a new chapter in my life: I became a college student! This week has been filled with new classes, professors, campus tours, studying, reading, and even more studying! I know that God has me exactly where He wants me to be….and that is truly exciting.
Over the next several years, I am so excited to see where God takes me. I don’t know the specific outcome or what I will be doing, but I do know Who has everything under control. Jeremiah 29:11 says, “‘For I know that plans I have for you,’ declares the Lord, ‘plans to prosper you and not to harm you. Plans to give you a hope and a future.'” God knows exactly what He is doing in my life. He led me to Central Florida Community College for a reason. He has blessed me with the opportunity to be an Ambassador for CFCC. He has given me some amazing mentors as I begin this new stage in my life. And you know what, I am loving every, single minute of where God has me. I love my school. I love my new friends. I love my classes….ok, not the homework per say, but you know what I mean! “Life’s a climb, but the view is great” is an amazing statement to hold dear to our hearts. Yes, we may not see exactly where we are headed, but we can rest assured that the One who placed the stars in the sky knows where we will be tomorrow.
God, thank you for walking with me through every moment of this week. Thank you for guiding me and leading me along this dusty trail called life. I give you complete control of my future. You are indescribable, God. I love you.
