“Help Me Find It”- Sidewalk Prophets

I just found this song today. I was looking for a good song, and it popped up on my listener survey with 95.1. It is a perfect fit for my latest post on being patient and content while I am feeling so restless.

The lyrics are:

I don’t know where to go from here
It all used to seem so clear
I’m finding I can’t do this on my own


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.


Steven Curtis Chapman- “God Is God”

I absolutely adore this song, and if you have never listened to it, I highly recommend it.

The song is about realizing that God is all powerful and has your whole future in his hand. You do not need to worry about your future, even though it can look hopeless and confusing now.

The lyrics are:

And the pain falls like a curtain
On the things I once called certain
And I have to say the words I fear the most
I just don’t know


Being Patient…

I always like to think of myself as a patient person, but when I have to actually be patient about something, I am definitely not.

As college students, we are constantly waiting and having to be patient. We have to be patient making it through our years of schooling, waiting to turn 21 like all our friends, and waiting for romance to enter our lives like a Disney movie.

A lot of us struggle with being patient, especially since we live in a world of instant gratification. If I want a cookie, then by gosh I will go buy one. If I want to see that new movie, I can just download it and watch it in my room.

I do not like having to be patient. I do not like having to wait for God’s timing on things, even though I know he has a perfect plan. Like Jeremiah 29:11 says, “‘For I know the plans I have for you,’ declares the Lord, ‘plans to prosper you and not harm you, plans to give you hope and a future.'”
