Choosing A Pathway

Here I am encountering the first crossroads of my life where, ultimately, I have to make the decisions.  No longer a "little girl" I only have 10 months left to be considered a child and am looking young adulthood, graduation, and college in the face, and trying to smile and pretend I'm not a little scared.
 Scared to make the wrong decisions, decisions that will effect the rest of my life.  Yearning to live out the dreams I have, while being in accordance with God's (unknown to me) plan for my life, and honoring my parents wishes.  Wondering if I dare take the road less traveled.  Excited for, yet still somewhat afraid of, the unknown that the next years hold. 

"For I know the thoughts that I think toward you, saith the Lord, thoughts of peace, and not of evil, to give you an expected end." - Jeremiah 29:11

"Remember the former things of old: for I am God and there is none else; I am God and there is none like me. Declaring the end from the beginning, and from ancient times the things which are not yet done, saying, my counsel shall stand, and I shall do my pleasure." Isaiah 46:9-10

Amidst this, what a comfort it is to once more remember that God knows what is unknown to me.  His hand is over it all orchestrating this beautiful symphony called life, and I just need to trust and follow His guidance.  He can make pathways where there seems to be non, or it appears to be impossible.  This knowledge gives a "peace that passes understanding" and calms the rolling sea of thoughts and questions in my mind. 



  1. You'll be in my prayers during this jointly exciting and terrifying time:) The best part is being forced to walk by faith and watch God's perfect plan unfolding. It's a miracle that never grows old.

    Beautiful blog - your landscape photos are breathtaking!

    1. Thank you Kellie, for both your prayers and the compliment! Yes, that is the best part about it. I have witnessed my parents having to just trust God MANY times having to do with our family, work, etc, but obviously this time it is much "closer to home" because it is actually ME having to do the trusting!:)

  2. God does not give us the spirit of fear, so you can confidently follow Him in each step. If you walk in His will today and you do that tomorrow... and the next day, you will be in His will a year from now. He loves to show us the way!
    Praying you will keep your eyes on Jesus.


Thanks for taking the time to comment... It brightens my day!
