Be my Shepherd

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.

Do you ever have that moment where you want to do something but you don't know how to go about doing it? Well that's how I feel right now. I really want to write a great post, something inspirational or thought-provoking or just one that will make you smile. But alas, I am at a loss for words. So I've come up with this idea. Every once in a while, I'll post 3 quotes/verse, 2 pictures, and one video. It's not an official or regular thing yet, just testing it out. So here they are ... my 3,2,1.

Kitten hug! Adorable! I love the facial expression! 
I actually got a kitten recently! Her name is Callie.

And this is my future library! :)
Seriously, I want one that looks just like this!

I love Britt Nicole's new song Gold, I've been listening to it a lot lately.

dear 2013.

Dear 2013,

welcome! I am looking forward to seeing what kinds of things you have in store for me. I don't usually like change, but I'm trying learn how to enjoy the journey. And change happens all of the time, it's kind of silly for me to think I can avoid it all together. So why not just embrace it, right? Anyways, a new year means new things, and new isn't always so bad. In fact, new can be very fun and exciting. So this year I'd like to learn new things, experience new life lessons, meet new people and go to new places. I want to fully live my life. And to not worry so much about the little things, but love. Most importantly, I want to be courageous and bold. I want God to use me to do great things and help lots of people. Is that too much to ask from one year? I hope not. I hope that this is the best year yet. 2013, I'd like you to know that I am open to all things new.

Ready For New
