The Big Transition
As I mentioned in my last post it’s a busy season, and in this busy season I have found myself focused on more than just school work. See, I am graduating in approximately a month, and as much as I would love to move back home (I’m kidding), I’m preparing to also find a full time job and live on my own. It’s a crazy transition, moving out of Bethel College into the real world, to think about, and I’d be lying if I said it was easy. Though I have yet to experience the transition in full effect, I know that this change, like most changes, will require me to stretch out of my comfort zone. I’ve been blessed for many years and supported, especially financially, by family. Soon, however, things will be different. I will be fending for myself, cooking my own meals, cleaning my own dishes, paying my own bills etc. I think I’ve taken these things for granted over the last few years. I guess the reason all of this is pressing upon my heart is because this week I turned in two applications for jobs. I’m taking a few risks and applying to places I feel the Lord has called me to or put on my heart. I’m trusting that in His time and in His purpose He will open the doors to the right job, but part of me (honestly) still wants control. For any of you who has experienced this transition or even those who have been on a job hunt, I think you can understand the mix of emotions that comes with it. I pray and hope that I can cast all my anxieties on Him during this time. I pray that I can embrace this transition, much like I did fours years ago when I decided to attend Bethel College.
See, the transition into this place wasn’t simple nor will the transition be as I leave. I’m going to miss this place. I’m going to miss my friends and professors. I’m going to miss leading alternate chapel and playing intramurrals. Ok, I have to stop because I’m starting to tear up. That’s enough for now…more to come as I spend my last month caught up in the spirited connections at BC.
