God has really been speaking to me. I'm going to be a sophomore this year and I've been thinking alot about my future. I came to the realization that I'm NOT ready for the real world. I don't know what I want to do with my life or where i'm going to go to college. There are so many options its so hard to choose.
I never once thought about what God had to show me about my future. I kind of thought that it would just happen, I didn't think I had to think about it until recently. But God showed me diffrently. Jeremiah 29:11-13 says "For I know the plans I have for you," declares the LORD, "plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future. Then you will call upon me and come and pray to me, and I will listen to you. You will seek me and find me when you seek me with all your heart." Did you catch that? If not go read it again. It says seek me and find me when you seek me with all your heart. God wants us to turn to Him and seek him with ALL our heart. He wants to show us what He has planned for us. That requires not only thinking about our futures but meditating on them and seeking God's will for our lives, our futures not just going to happen.
God has an amazing plan for each and everyone of His children. We may not know what it is, but if we seek God, He will slowly begin to reveal to us what He is calling us to do.
