In college, it can be really hard to balance everything. You find yourself doing homework, studying for tests, sorority stuff, work, clubs, and social life. At times it feels like you can’t put 100% of yourself in exactly all of them. You become tired and worried with your future, while also homesick in some cases.
At times you feel lost and don't know what you’re doing with your life. You’re working towards a degree while also juggling all that comes with college life. The fear of not knowing where you will end up in the future is a thought always popping up with your head. You’re working towards your dreams while conquering your fears, yet the future is still so unknown.
With so much going on, sometimes you tend to forget sight of some things. We lose trust in God’s plan for us. We are constantly living for tomorrow and worrying about the future. I have to remind myself that it is all in God’s hands. I need to look toward the heavens to Him and trust Him.
It is all in God’s plan. Every class we are taking, every relationship and friendship, every due date, every extracurricular: It is all in His plan. All these things are paving the road along our path. He is bigger than any problem, any struggle, any worry. God is all-knowing; He knows who will stay your friends after college, He knows the grade you will get on your test, and who you will spend the rest of your life with. It is all figured out by Him, so all we need to do is trust.
Continuing a strong relationship with Jesus during college is one of the most difficult, but also amazing things we can do. During these years of constant growing, we need Him. We need to have faith, so close your eyes and open your heart. Isaiah 41:10 says, “So do not fear, for I am with you; do not be dismayed, for I am your God. I will strengthen you and help you; I will uphold you with my righteous right hand.” How comforting is this? God will give you the strength to keep going in the comfort of his presence.
Trust in God’s timing and build your relationship with Him through this time of transition. He is all around you in everything you do. Through the hard times and the good times, through the tears and the laughter, in the morning and at night, He is right by your side. Put aside the worries you have on your to-do list and know that God’s got it. He loves you more than you know and your plan has been beautifully made by Him.
