Life of a College Graduate: Transition.

August 10, 2012 I graduated from the University of North Texas with a Bachelor’s of Arts in English Language Arts, a teaching certificate for that subject in grades 8-12, and a technical writing certificate.

What am I doing now?

Working at Texas Roadhouse as a server. About to begin substitute teaching. Waiting for a potential job as an administrative assistant for a friend through the Navigators.

Waiting to see where the Lord leads me. In my job. In my relationship with my boyfriend.

Learning to trust the Lord. That He’s creating me into who He created me to be. That I am who I am because of who He is and what He’s done and will do– not because of who I am or what I do.

All I really want to do is to share Jesus with people. For some reason, I have it in my head that, when I figure out where God truly wants me (workplace, city, community, etc.), then I will be able to boldly share Jesus with those I’m around. Why don’t I think I can do that now where God has currently placed me? I am the light of the world because Jesus lives in me and shines through me… well He should. Many times, though, I try to shine myself and, as a result, hide Him.

It is my prayer that my words and my actions shine the Lord’s light on all those who look upon me. May everything I do be for the Lord’s glory and not my own. May I be confident in the Lord’s transforming, always-working, almighty power and in that He is always faithful to complete the work He starts.
