“No matter what you decide to do, it’s never outside of God’s plans,” shared the speaker at my campus ministry retreat.
For me, a graduating college senior, these are comforting words.
God is big enough to use any decision I make. Whichever path I take, God will still be with me. If my first choice after graduation doesn’t work out, I know God will provide for me. I can trust the community I’ve built in my church to help me as well.
The difficulty with transition is the many possibilities — of careers or even going back for more schooling. God seems to lead some people to a specific job or place. But I've never seen a flashing sign or a bolt of lightning telling me what to do. So I weigh my options by talking to God through prayer, and then I make a choice. Each step of the way, I pray, “If this isn’t what I should be doing, make obstacles for me.” But God doesn’t always close a door. Often, He leaves me with several opportunities. In any case, I must choose to move forward by faith.
My post-graduation plans are still uncertain, but I feel safe knowing that God has a plan for my life. And that plan doesn’t have to include a straight path.
Life is about the journey of maturing and growing wiser. God has never promised I will be rich or successful if I follow Him, but the Bible tells me that where my treasure is, there my heart is also. If I love God more than other things, it will be harder for me to be disappointed when I don’t get those other things, because I will always have God.
