It’s been two years since I wore that cap at my graduation from Biola University. TWO YEARS! That was a crazy season in life and the quote I put, from the wise Andy Dwyer of Parks & Recreation played by Chris Pratt, definitely still reflects my life. I remember all the emotions, fears, worries, doubts I felt as I anticipated leaving college. Two years later and God has been faithful each step of the way. Dry seasons were growth seasons, reminding me of the daily need I have to lean on Him.
As of right now, I am in a great place in life — at my first full time job, getting ready for marriage, finding a place to move to — but of course as I start to get comfortable with where I am, God stirs things up again. I am listening to the book, “You & Me Forever” by Francis Chan (highly recommend it!) and he talks about how Christians nowadays strive to find a comfortable living, always trying to do whatever it takes to build their good life away from hardships, without focusing on eternity. I am reminded that God didn’t call us for this place. Our time on earth is a mere speck in the spectrum of eternity.
Now, with unexpected transitions happening at work, unfortunate situations happening in Micah’s life, and so many hurting loved ones around me, I sat in my car today reminded that I get SO worried when my comfortable life gets stirred in the littlest bit and already lose sight of how big my God is. These are all seasons, everything fades, and life is temporary. But God is good, loving, unwavering, and faithful yesterday, today, and forever. Amen.
So in this next transition period of life, I shall move with this quote in mind again — “I have no idea what I’m doing, but I know I’m doing it really really well.” It’s kind of nerdy, but a good motto because I continue to seek God and leave room for Him to lead me wherever.
I am thankful for where I am. I am thankful for the new people He has put in my life. I am thankful to be in a company where I can pray, fast, and do life with my coworkers. I am thankful to have been raised in my family with such God-fearing parents. I am looking forward to what is to come. My heart is a bit heavy, but it is full.
