"For I know the plans I have for you,' declares the LORD, 'plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future."- Jeremiah 29:11
This verse has been on my mind A LOT lately, since I frankly have no idea what the future holds. I am just so grateful someone does! It so comforting to know that He gives us HOPE for the future! There is a light at the end of this tunnel! Each day, and sometimes each hour, I change my mind and contemplate, "what is my next step?" And I still don't know! So here are my options:
1. Continue graduate school. Work a part-time job, be an extra in movies, and continue to be a kid until I finish school. This of course with numerous benefits of not having quite as much responsibility just yet, still being able to act like a kid, and have fun with my friends who haven't graduated yet and don't have to debate life just yet, and being able to take off whenever I want to go places without a worry.
2. Continue grad school. Get a "big girl job." Now since I gradated in May I have really been trying to do this but recently it hit me, I don't want to grow up yet! Do I gotta?? The benefits here...a salary, health benefits, feeling like I accomplished something, getting out there in the real world, etc.
Now option 2 seems to have more benefits but, aren't these benefits the ones that will still be available after I finish grad school next summer? Aren't those benefits still going to be around... unlike the being young and acting like a kid aspect which is quickly fading. If I pass on a job now, doesn't that mean that there is something that much better for me waiting for me later.
Ahhh...decisions, decisions...God show me the way.
