THIS IS GOD'S DOING.
"Before I formed you in the womb I knew you, and before you were born I consecrated you; I appointed you a prophet to the nations." Then I said, "Ah, Lord God! Behold, I do not know how to speak, for I am only a youth." But the LORD said to me, "Do not say, 'I am only a youth; for to all to whom I send you, you shall go, and whatever I command you, you shall speak. Do not be afraid of them, for I am with you to deliver you, declares the LORD." Then the LORD put out His hand and touched my mouth. And the LORD said to me, "Behold, I have put My words in your mouth. See, I have set you this day over nations and over kingdoms to pluck up and to break down, to destroy and to overthrow, to build and to plant."--- Jeremiah 1:5-10
In my Discovering God's Will for Your Life class with Pastor Haugen (I know, crazy huh? Big topic for a one credit class!) he had us read this passage and mark all the personal pronouns. In doing so, I found that everything that happened was God's doing.
Sometimes it's easy to stress about the future and plans as we are in a stage of transition. But GOD is the One who does it all. HE knows the plans He has for us (Jeremiah 29:11). While it can still be stressful making big decisions, God has a plan and is going to use us in the situations that He brings us to.
God will bring you to the place where HE wants you to be. Remember, this is God's doing.
