Today on my timehop I was reminded of my trip for freshman orientation at
Liberty University. It brought back all my pictures and tweets of the excitement,
nervousness and how I fell in love with such a beautiful campus. I did not realize that daywhat opportunities, blessings and friendships I would gain from being there.
Two years later, I am in a different place with a different plan and am a different person.
Going into my freshman year at Liberty, I was just a nervous psychology major
who cried saying good bye to my mom but also met my very best friends all in the same
I still remember the feelings of walking up all four flights of stairs with my stuff, moving in and that final good bye. I assumed this was it I would do this for the next four years: come home on breaks, get good grades, study hard and have good times and just
continue the cycle until graduation day. Little did I know God would have a completely
different plan for me.
In the past two years, I changed my major, made more friends, got
a summer job, moved back home and am now doing online classes while becoming a
medical assistant. I did not expect to be here but I know this is where the Lord has led

prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future.’”
God knew where you would be today, even before you were born. He knew what you
would become, your likes and dislikes, your relationships and your plans. We have to
understand that we are not the writers of our story, God is. If something does not
work out for you it does not mean that God is against you. It means that He has a better
option for you.
Sometimes our plans are different then Gods and that is okay. We may get frustrated and ask God why but simply, the answer is that He loves you so much. While it easy to get lost in our own thoughts like who will I marry, will I be able to get a job after graduation, why am I stuck in traffic, and other such things. For every thought we have God has an
I want you to understand 3 things….
1. CHANGE IS OKAY
While its hard to accept changes, we need to understand that its Gods plan and
because He love us!!
2. TRUST IN THE LORD
All we can do is give it to God and allow Him to be in control. He loves you and
will never hurt you so the choices He made for you are important and special to
3. PRAY PRAY PRAY
What else can you do when you are happy, frustrated, confused or happy? Pray
to the Lord to direct your path, thank the Lord for the blessings He gave you and
remember He is always there for you.
