And my God will meet all your needs according to his glorious riches in Christ Jesus.
Here it is: the last week and a half of finals before the close of the semester, graduation (Associate in Arts degree), and summer vacation!! It has been a good semester – not necessarily an easy or painless one – but good nonetheless.
The biggest thing I am facing now is what to do next. And of course everybody wants to know, “What are you going to do? Where are you going to go? What are you going to be? What are you doing with your life?”
I don’t know yet!
But one thing I do: God is infinitely greater than all challenges, insecurities, and decisions I face. And His plan (whatever it may be) is going to be far greater and better than I can imagine or work out for myself.
I checked out the Army National Guard earlier this year after going to a job fair and talking with a recruiter. Then a week or so later, I started having knee pain while running, which was a hindrance to running and going to see what the drills were like. That option kind of seems like a closed door for now.
After completing EMT-B certification, I applied for entrance into the Paramedic program at the community college for the fall 2012 semester. I will have wait until June or July to hear if I was accepted or not.
Other options I have considered for next semester are a) work full time; b) study auto mechanics (something I have always been interested in); c) travel; or d) none of the above. As cliche as it might sound, I’m just going to trust God to work everything out at the right time.
As for this summer, there are a few things that I am excited about…
~ My sister and I are doing our first 5k ‘Color Run’ together in July!
~ Skydiving for the first time!! (I don’t know when or where yet)
~ Spending time with my family! (road trip! road trip!)
Another thing I am excited about: I bought my first (used) vehicle last week!! It’s a gorgeous red SUV and I love it! God has blessed me more than I could hope for or deserve!
In 9 days, I will have a college degree, a paid-for vehicle, freedom, and support from my awesome parents to go out (or stay) and do whatever it is God has for me this summer!! And I’m excited about that!
