Trying to Be Patient in a Not Patient World

Standard

One thing that God has been trying to teach me is to be patient. Society teaches us that we shouldn’t have to wait for anything. We currently live in a society that wants everything done now. I unfortunately have this mindset at times. Recently I have been in a season of waiting. Actually I am still in the season of waiting on certain things.

One thing I had to patient about is what I am supposed to do this summer. I had a few options at what I could do for the summer. I was torn if I should be finding a job in the town where I go to school and where my family lives. I also thought I should be taking summer classes. But part of me wanted to be somewhere else for the summer. One day I was on Facebook and my old school had posted an organization that was looking for people for the summer. The job consisted of me leaving for the summer. They had a list of places and organizations you could go to, and then you chose a top 3 from the list.  I ended up applying and getting a job in the city and organization I wanted. So it looks like I am going to Charlotte, NC! So luckily that prayer was answered.

Though this prayer was answered I am still in a season of waiting for other things. As like most college students there are a lot of decisions that you have to make while you’re in college. I don’t know how it’s possible, but I am about to be a junior in college. And as I approach this year I have to start really thinking about what I want to do after college, and what would be the best things to be doing to prepare me for the career I want to go into after college.

Another thing I have been working on with patience is to have peace when I don’t know what things will look like. I’m someone who wants all the answers now. If I don’t know what I should do with a decision I pray that God would make it clear of what I should be doing, but I am learning that sometimes God doesn’t give you a crystal clear answer. He might instead give you a few choices and let you pick one. Then after you decide he will walk and guide you through this decision. I have faith that God knows what he is doing in my life, and he’ll be with me every step of the way! One day I’ll be with God and have answers, but until then I am going to faithfully follow Christ!
