Life has been such a blur these past few weeks. I’m supposed to be writing a post on Petit Fours class but I can hardly write down the details of something that happened two weeks ago. Sorry guys! But you can still enjoy the pictures! I honestly have been so inconsistent with my blog posts and I thank you that you have stuck with me through it all.
So, instead of talking about petit fours, which are mini little desserts that I can easily and quickly pop into my mouth, let’s talk about life. School is nearing to an end and I have only 33 days left until graduation. The time has flown by and all I’m left with is concerns about the future. At times, I am overwhelmed by the unanswered questions that swirl around my brain: Where will I live? Where will I work? Can I afford to stay in Illinois? What about my loans, when can I pay those off? Do I want to live at home, am I strong enough to live away from my family? On and on it goes until the floodgates open to worry and fear, threatening to break me and drown me as I stand in their path.
Yet, at the same time, I am at perfect peace knowing that the Lord will calm the waters and lead me to safety. He is using my questions to encourage me to look to Him for the answers. He is painting my life into a picture of Proverbs 16:3 “Commit to the Lord whatever you do, and He will establish your plans.”
As I lift up my concerns in prayer, His comfort courses through my veins. I can trust Him to guide my steps when I commit my actions to Him and live my life in testimony to Him. He will not lead me down a path He does not want me to go. He will make my way prosperous. He will protect my path. He will guide me in the way that I should go. I have nothing to fear.
“Even though I walk through the valley
Of the shadow of death
Your perfect love is casting out fear
And even when I’m caught in the middle
Of the storms of this life
I won’t turn back, I know You are near
And I will fear no evil
For my God is with me
And if my God is with me
Whom then shall I fear?
Whom then shall I fear?”
(“You Never Let Go” Lyrics)
