I then set my sites on pharmacy school. I studied for my chemistry degree, took the appropriate testing, and applied my senior year. While I was applying, I realized my heart was just not in to becoming pharmacist. As you can imagine, I did not get into pharmacy school. Once I had found out I was sad but relieved. God had shut that door, which ment there was another one open somewhere.
Ben and I got married after graduation, and I moved to Tucson AZ to be with him. Everything was going great, but for the first time in my life I had no plan. My entire life, I had a plan for the future that I carefully followed.
After months of looking for a job and not even receiving an interview I became discouraged. I decided to volunteer at a hospital to do something worthwhile with my time. I was placed in the Labor and Delivery unit, and in Human Resources.
It was there in the Human Resource department that I was offered a job. A job I didn't even apply for! God literally handed me my job. I now work in recruitment and have really enjoyed it. I get to help people everyday and build trusting relationships.
Where does this leave me now? Honestly, I have no clue what to do next. I have always wanted to go to grad school, but I dont know what I would want to go to school for. I am more confused now than ever. However, every time I get discouraged, I am reminded about Abram.
In Genesis 12:1 Abram was commanded:
"The LORD said to Abram, "Go from your country, your people and your father's household to the land I will show to you."
Abram didn't have a clue as to where he was going. He was asked to leave all things familiar and to trust God to lead him to where he should go. Abram then picked up his family and followed God to the land he had for him.
I admire Abram's obedience and his faith in God. To leave everything behind and follow God where ever he may lead sounds extremely challenging to me. Yet Abram did it! If you read on further, you see how immensely blessed Abram became.
I may have no idea where God is directing my life, but he does have a plan. Its a great plan too. So friend, if you find your self in this boat with me, dont be discouraged. Our God cherishes you and has a marvelous plan for your life! As long as we do everything to His glory, and keep close to Him we cant go the wrong way.
