What I'm Learning In The New Season
I graduated from college two weeks ago, and it was honestly an amazing experience. I got to decorate my cap ( it's super cute, btw), I had a great time taking my senior pictures, and I passed all my classes (a relief lol). Plus, graduation day was great and having my family around me to celebrate this new season made it all the more special. Quoting High School Musical, I guess you could say it was "the start of something new."
But I don't know about you, but there's always a feeling that comes with new seasons; it's a feeling I couldn't help but feel last week, sitting at home a week after graduation, doing absolutely nothing. After being in school for the majority of my life, it seemed weird being done with school and with this season of my life. It felt unusual leaving school for summer break without the intention of going back in the fall; I mean, this is a routine I've been following since kindergarten!
New seasons bring feelings of excitement and anticipation but, they can also bring feelings of doubt and unease. Stepping out into the unknown, not knowing what the future holds, hoping and praying that everything will work out. Change comes in all shapes and sizes and it can look different to everyone. For some people, that could be transferring to a different college or starting at a new job or starting a new relationship. For me, change is moving across the country for nine months to go to a leadership school.
Change can be scary. It can be scary not knowing what's next or if everything will work out; but something I've learned about new seasons is that when it's ordained by God, it will always work out. Because God will never lead us to new places without sticking with us through it all, I know that everything will work out. I've also learned to take life one day at a time; I've learned that I shouldn't worry about what's gonna happen next month or the month after that. For a control freak like me, that's pretty nerve-racking; but God is teaching me how to embrace not knowing. Think about it: isn't it so refreshing to know that we don't have to be control, because God is and He has a perfect plan for each of our lives? That should make us sit back and relax, knowing that we don't have to have everything figured out. God is in control; He's got you.
“And we know that in all things, God works for the good of those who love Him, who have been called according to His purpose.” Romans 8:28
