Stepping into Adulthood

In our lives, there are always huge choices of what to do next. Sometimes, you can't just go for it. You have to weigh every possibility of what may happen, and how will it effect everyone else's lives. The pondering moments are crucial. 
The biggest step of going into adulthood is learning what you want to do with your future. Do you want to focus on a career? Do you want to go to college? When do you want to move out of your parent's house? Are you capable of being independent? Do you have the money to support yourself? How much are your parents going to help you? Do you have any possible roommates? Well, here I am at 19 years old (and I still feel like I'm 12!), and I'm making these hard decisions. No, I don't want to go to college to focus on a career. I would like to move out on my own, but my simple fast food job isn't going to support my every need. Isn't it a terrible time realizing that you have no one to move out with? Maybe that's just me... 
So while I sit here wondering about my not so distant future, I pray that God will guide me through it all. (And that I'll stop freaking out about the silly things.) Luckily, I opened up an email from my boyfriend, Jordan, and this scripture was in it. "Trust in the Lord with all your heart; do not depend on your own understanding. Seek his will in all you do, and he will show you which path to take." Proverbs 3;5-6

On a more happy note, I FINALLY BLOGGED!
