When you are feeling restless…….

So today marks the 50 day countdown until I graduate from college. I have no idea how four years flew by, it feels like just yesterday I began my first year at Carroll Community College and met some amazing people in the Hill Scholars Program. Now I am about to graduate from the beautiful school that is Hood College.

You always hear the term senioritis, and man is it true. Every day that passes I feel like I am becoming more and more restless. Tonight at my women’s study I was talking to my good friend Naeisha about the mixed feeling about being ready to graduate and be done, but at the same time not ready to move into the real world.

But all I really want to do is leave. My current dream is to work on a cruise ship for a year or two, and I have pretty much applied to every position available. And I sit in my dorm and pray for God to take me away from here and make these days fly by. And anyone who knows me knows that I am a very impatient person.

My internship journey and lesson on trusting God

If you know me well, you know that I am stubborn, impatient, I hate asking for help, and have even more unflattering traits. But the trait I deal with the most is my constant struggle with trusting God about my future.

At Hood, Communication Arts majors are required to have a practicum or internship to graduate. So like a good student, I started hunting in early October. I got letters of recommendation from teachers, went to the career center for cover letter advice, and did plenty of research on possible internships. I applied to over half a dozen locations.

I never heard back from some, and for the rest I was turned down. I had family and friends reaching out to contacts to try and find me an internship for the Spring. But every door I tried was slammed in my face.

When life is tough

Let’s be honest, sometimes it feels like life is too hard to handle. Whether it is financial issues, family problems, health issues, relationships, losing a loved one, career problems, or anything else you can imagine, life always seems to pile up on us.

When life gets tough, sometimes we struggle to blindly trust God. But we cannot lose hope, because will never leave us or forsake us. “The righteous cry out, and the Lord hears them; he delivers them from all their troubles. The Lord is close to the brokenhearted and saves those crushed in spirit” Psalm 34:17-18.

Currently, you may feel like you have been given the short stick in life, and that God has decided to pick on you. “Consider it pure joy, my brothers, whenever you face trials of many kinds, because you know that the testing of your faith develops perseverance” James 1:2-3.

“Voice of Truth”- Casting Crowns

This song is about believing God’s voice, and not the worlds. It relates to my last post about persecution. It gives examples like walking on the water and facing Goliath, and how we don’t have to fear the world and what they say, because God will protect us and not allow us to be overcome by our enemies.

 

Here is a nice lyric slideshow a person made to go along with the song: 

 

Have a nice weekend everyone!
