// balloon in the wind//
Honestly, Wreck It Ralph was so clever…and creative. Can I please come up with something innovative like that?? I have to draw out a storyboard for an animation idea for my graduate applications due Feb 1. So I have approximately 2 months to figure out the most bomb/creative/crazy/witty/cute/best animation I can, to have a fighting chance to be accepted. I’m not sure where I should be going in life at the moment, and I’m always changing my aspirations.
But then I realized something after reading this verse:
“In their hearts humans plan their course, but the Lord establishes their steps” Proverbs 16:9
As seniors, there are probably more than a few individuals who don’t really have a concrete idea of what they want to become (myself included…I think I would be president of the club). But the answer is right in front of our eyes. God answers through our natural abilities and gifts. He has given us many talents/skills to lead us closer to the future he has planned for us.
God-Given Talent: a “gift,” something we can do easily , something that comes naturally
Basically, if you don’t know where you want to end up, just do what you are naturally good at and watch God confirm your choices. Don’t spend time doing what you’renotgood at.
When you do something you are not gifted at…you end up being miserable.
When you do something you love…you’ll excel in every possible way.
Operating in our gifts and using what God has blessed us with is glorifying and honoring to God. So, don’t think about the technical issues of how you’re going to get somewhere/the cost/etc just do what you’re good at because it’s God’s gift to you and he’ll provide you everything you need to succeed.
So, I’m going to stop worrying about my future in every aspect (school, career, relationships, etc). I’m just going to do what I want and love and see where God takes me; because, I’m sure it’ll be better than the place I would choose. No more forcing things.
I’m gonna be like a balloon in the wind. God will hold my string as I blow around in the wind doing what I want. But, no matter how much a blow from side to side, in the end God will continue to hold the string tightly and lead me to where he wants me to be.
