A year ago, 2018 seemed new and mystical, a year that held the unknown.
Smack dab in the middle of the year, and it’s very much the same, but so different.
I never expected to be into photography. That I’d start a blog. That I’d be in the middle of writing 2 novels. That everything that’s happened in this year alone would.
And now, I’m seriously wondering what is gonna happen in the future.
Have you ever started those life plan thingys (yes, that’s a word and I made it up, live with it :P)? The ones that go for months and years? I sorta have, only I don’t quite know what to put on it. Anyway, someone once, as part of a tag, asked me what I saw myself doing in 10 years.
I don’t even know what’s happening in 10 months. Or ten weeks, let alone whole years.
I still don’t know.
The future seems so uncertain right now.
And that’s ok.
Because I’m not in control of my life, God is. And the more I think about the future, the more I realize that I can’t rely on myself. I’m weak, and young, and unexperienced. There’s so much more I have to learn and so little I already know.
Which is why I must rely on God to provide for the future.
And, you know, that’s very comforting. To know that I really am in the palm of God’s hand, that He cares, and that He will be the one providing and showing me where to go. My awesome sister put it like something this: God’s taken care of us already, I know He is able to continue and already is taking care of us.
We just have to trust Him, because in His perfect timing, God will show us what will happen over the years.
So does that mean we should stop thinking about the future? NO! Sometimes it’s fun to wait for things with eager anticipation. Should we worry? No. Because God is in control. All the time.
And I can’t wait to see what He has for me. 🙂
