One of my favorite verses, it has really helped me the past few weeks. The time has come in our school year for us to be picking our classes for next year. For the past few weeks I have been so stressed and worried about my senior year and what classes to take that will help me prepare for my future career. Do i do AP?, dual-credit(college courses)? Can we afford these classes and tests? Before I knew it, I found myself looking at tons of college stuff and majors and minors, along with all my school work from this year, my junior year in high school. All of the sudden I just sat there and thought, "I don't need to be thinking about all of this just yet, I've got time, right?" Well, being the person I am, I still felt like I need to be deciding everything right at this very moment. I still have a year and a half till college but one thing keeps leading to another and I find myself researching colleges and what majors and classes to take. After a bible study on trusting in God and a Sunday school class on not worrying, I realized that I have been going about this all wrong. I need to remember that God has a plan for me and I need to trust that he will take care of me and get me to where I need to be, when I need to be there. God loves us, and will always take care of us. Even if it seems like He is not there and you are all alone in this stress, you are not, and He is always there leading you along the path he has made for you.
Now, things might not always turn out the way we want them, but we need to just take every day, one day at a time and put our trust in God. God will provide. As the one hit wonder, Bobby McFerrin sings to us:
