Debt, Doubt, And Decisions

college-debt

I’m a senior in college and am (Lord willing) about to graduate and be in the real world seeking employment.

I always get asked about my plans for after college and I don’t like it because I have no idea what I am going to do! It is so stressful sometimes to think about loans coming up and living on my own.  I have no idea where I am going to live, what I’m going to do and how I’m going to pay off loans.

But here comes the good news:

Do not be anxious about anything, but in everything by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known to God.  And the peace of God, which surpasses all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus. -Philippians 4:6-7

Those verses have been so comforting lately, especially with all the assignments and big projects I have to get done in less than a month!

Life always gets complicated and hard to manage, but when you trust Jesus, he will guide you in paths of righteousness for his names’ sake.  Although I worry and doubt, I know that whatever lies ahead will be an adventure and that God will take care of me.  I hope this encourages you today and I look forward to writing more for morethanabeard.com.

    If you’re investing in bible verses and imaginary men to get your future off the ground then I don’t think the dividend will be of note. You future is your your own hands, your own efforts, with and investment of time, commitment and energy, not Jewish history. Get real. Get serious.

    • Lex, I realize not everyone has the same level of self confidence, but I find it interesting that you feel the need to spew your disbelief after someone just opened up their heart and shared their feelings. Considering our nation, the richest in all of history, was founded by religious people and established as a place for people to freely worship as they please, how can you say “the dividend will not be of note”?
      Of course I’m not actually looking for a response because continuing on a conversation about hate and doubt rarely leads to progress. You can believe whatever you would like but it is not my place to say you need to “get real” and realize there is more to life than what you have going on.
      Keagan, thank you for openly sharing what’s on your heart and who you are. Never let fear or hate stop you from sharing what you know to be true.
      Sincerely,
      Travis
