The girl in that photo is not me, but I find myself feeling a little bit like her. Granted, that photo looks a little grey, but it wonderfully reflects my insides. Why?
Last week I was offered a job for after I graduate. A great job, a job with cool people and a nice atmosphere, a job where I am going to learn a great deal of valuable information. Yay!
Bottom line: I’m very much excited, and thankful to the Lord for the opportunity.
What my getting a job also means is that my new reality is swiftly approaching. The end of a wonderful chapter, some necessary endings, and a season of change. Don’t get me wrong, despite the temporary almost-heartache I am bound to feel when the goodbyes start to happen, and while I absolutely do not want to rush the life I’m currently in, I am thrilled about this next season.
Bringing us back around to the photo: looking out over a vast ocean.
So many new possibilities await. So many new decisions. So many new thrills and ways to grow as a person. So many fresh elements of life that I have yet to truly experience.
Praise Jesus for life.
My heart is full of gratitude to have a God who is my Rock, no matter where/what/how life looks, He never changes. His love for me never changes. His pursuit of my heart never changes. His desire to give me abundant life in Himself never changes.
It’s a beautiful thing.
