Accomplishment and uncertainty are two words that aren't often paired together but put them in the same sentence as college graduation and suddenly they seem to go hand in hand. The feeling of having completed your college career with success but not knowing what comes next leaves many college students confused, scared, and lost. You're about to enter a season of life filled with uncertainty, and often, without a plan for what comes next. But in the midst of the uncertainty, there is a certainty - God has a plan for you. Even if you don't believe it, even when you can't see it, there's a plan in place, there is a future. Here are 11 Bible verses to remind you of that.

To my newest angel in heaven...
Grandpa Norb, I just wanted to write to you to let you know how great it is to be loved by a grandpa like you. With 4 children, 4 children in-law, 10 grandchildren and 9 great-grandchildren, we all know in our different ways your love for us. While you are no longer here, I am certain that you will always be watching over us and in our hearts.
Knowing you for 20 years, I can't imagine feeling more loved. Every holiday gathering started with you wishing a Merry Christmas, no matter the actual holiday. You always welcomed with a hug, and said goodbye with open arms, a kiss on the cheek and a whispered reminder that I am always in your prayers. Even with you no longer with us, I know you'll be watching over and praying for me as I carry on my steps in life.
Like a sunflower, you were always bright and smiling when I saw you. You showed your excitement when I walked in the room and made me feel lucky to be around you and overjoyed to know you just through your smile. You were the patriarch of our wonderful family standing tall and showering us with radiating love and goofiness.
Among us all, you loved Grandma with your whole heart and were married for 68 beautiful years. Watching her say goodbye has been one of the hardest things to see, but completely overpowering, the love you had for each other. As long as I knew you, I don't think I ever saw the two of you apart. The unconditional love that you had and always will feel for each other is one that I envy to have in my own relationships.
As almost two weeks have passed since God brought you to him, this is my goodbye to you. I will never forget the last good day I spent with you and Grandma together. I will think of you when I see yellow sunflowers standing tall and bright, and during thunderstorms as if it is you Grandpa Ray bowling together up in heaven.
I feel incredibly lucky to know you and have been loved by you for 20 of your 94 years, and I will always miss you.
