As the end of the second-semester approaches, on the college level, underclassmen are preparing for registration and whether to store their stuff at school or not. Seniors, on the other hand, are preparing for life after college. For the past four years you have made lifelong relationships here and now, you are about to embark on the next phase of life.
On the high school level, most of the same applies. You have spent many more years with the people you're about to leave. You have formed such strong bonds through sleepovers, sporting events, taking all the same classes. This is going to be a big change, but it is going to be amazing for your personal growth.
You may feel ready. Or you may not. You may know what you want to major in. Or you may not. You may have a job secured already. Or you may not. And that is all okay.
Whether the next journey for your life consists of finding out what you want to do and living in a dorm room or finding a new place to call home and finding that dream job, don't forget one important thing: remember God has a plan and He will lead you where you need to be.
Here are 13 verses that prove just that.
