I'm in grade 11. I still have a whole year until I have to start worrying about universities and what I want to do for the rest of my life. Yet I've been thinking about it since the start of high school when the guidance counselors told us that the next four years of our lives would go by quickly. The thought has been in my mind since last year when I considered doing a special Eco Studies program at my school. I've been worrying about it since last week when were given our option sheets and told that we have 2 weeks to pick our courses for next year. I've been thinking about it for a long time, but I still don't know what I want to do.
When I was younger I thought it would be cool to be Prime Minister. Then I got the idea of being an engineer. At one point, being a writer for the rest of my life sounded fun. Sometimes I think I'd like to be a photographer. Other days I feel like running my own business. The truth is I simply don't know.
I've talked to my friends and even a few people who are graduating this year and I realized I'm not the only one. Everyone I talk to seems to be in the same boat as I am. A lot of people have no clue about their post secondary plans. And you know what? That's okay.
I've been spending too much time worrying about my future career and just life in general that I've forgotten that my future is in the hands of the Sheperd. The One who has already guided so many others to do great things and find their purpose. If they can do it, so can I... with His help of course. Jesus, be my Sheperd. Guide me and I will follow.
