the post-college wasteland

I have been trying to assemble my thoughts on this topic in a way that will encourage my friends in their early 20s, to let them know that It Sucks, But Eventually It Gets Easier.

Randomly, I was perusing my old blog and found this from January 2005:

“You know the plans You have for me; and You can’t plan the ends and not plan the means.”  -Caedmon’s Call (Table for Two)

“God loves you and has a wonderful plan for your life.”  -KGP

“For I know the plans I have for you,” declared the Lord, “plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future.”  Jeremiah 29:11

To be Perfectly Honest, I have a difficult time believing that God has a plan for my life.  It has a lot to do with the past two years.  I just feel like every decision I make turns into what I would call a setback.  I’m afraid to dream anymore, because I don’t want them to dissolve.  Instead of gathering life skills and experience, it seems like I’m accumulating new phobias and insecurities.  This is not what I was expecting.

(I want to give my 2005 self such a big hug!)

Honey, you aren’t going to figure out the rest of your life any time soon – I don’t have the heart to tell you that you’re still trying –  but you’re definitely learning to trust God in the unknown.
