Sometimes life is confusing. You think you have it all figured out, and then just like that, God throws a bombshell in your direction. Once this happens, it is truly hard to get back on your feet. So, if you are the one caught in the middle of an unexpected bombshell of events, I am here to save you.
#1) realize that it’s not the end of the World.
– When we believe that we have it all together, we often become delirious that we are indeed living in a crazy World, where all sorts of things can happen. Once you become “comfortable” with your life-long plan, your surroundings, and your daily routine you become dependent on it. Sometimes when everything that you’ve worked for is taken out from under you, that’s God’s way of showing you that you’re not in control.
#2) evaluate your life, and eliminate what is necessary.
– College students, and young ladies, typically tend to take on way more than they can handle. A full schedule of senior level classes, after school activities, part time jobs, and still attempting to maintain a social life. I mean really, who in the world has time for all of that? If something isn’t helping you reach your lifelong goals and dreams, eliminate it. It is that simple.
#3) Keep calm and trust your creator.
– That test you failed, that job that you lost, that boyfriend that cheated on you, God knew that all of those horrible things were going to happen to you long before they did. When we get comfortable with our big plans, we tend to get a little cocky and we don’t need to rely on God anymore. That is not true. When these bad things happen in our lives, God is the one thing that we cannot lose. Trust him. God has a plan for your life, even when you believe that there is no hope left.
The life of a twenty-something year old college student is tiring, long, confusing, and wonderful. My advice to you? Enjoy every minute of it. Know that you are a daughter of God and no matter what you will be okay.
