Growing up = big decisions

That you may be filled with the knowledge of his will in all spiritual wisdom and understanding, so as to walk in a manner worthy of the Lord, fully pleasing to him, bearing fruit in every good work and increasing in the knowledge of God. May you be strengthened with all power, according to his glorious might, for all endurance and patience with joy, giving thanks to the Father, who has qualified you to share in the inheritance of the saints in light. He has delivered us from the domain of darkness and transferred us to the kingdom of his beloved Son, in whom we have redemption, the forgiveness of sins. Colossians 1:9-14

How splendid and marvelously weighty of a prayer!

This is the part that stands out to me most on this day: That you may be filled with the knowledge of his will in all spiritual wisdom and understanding, so as to walk in a manner worthy of the Lord, fully pleasing to him, bearing fruit in every good work and increasing in the knowledge of God. I am in an interesting stage of my life. One that majority of humanity experiences: the transition between college to real world. I’m only almost halfway through my senior year, so it’s not like any decision needs to be made quickly… but the possibilities are rolling in. By God’s grace, I potentially have a couple of options when it comes to a job after graduation — the difficult aspect being that those options are in three completely different cities. On top of that, I’m in what I think is a serious relationship, serious enough to lead to marriage, and that adds a layer of intentional thought and prayer.

I can’t define what kind of state it puts me in. One that seems numb. The variety of decisions I have before me are big, life-shifting decisions.

I need wisdom. I know and believe God has a specific plan for my life, and I trust that wherever that is and whatever that entails, I will be happy and content — because it’ll be His best for me at the time.

I still need wisdom, and sensitivity to His leading. As well as honesty from the other half of this dating relationship.
