School, Worry, & Real Life

Sigh. The time for sleeping in, do nothing mornings, and relaxation is over. Which could mean only one thing: school is back in session. I have never been a big fan of school. I do alright in it and all, but I have to work hard. It doesn't just come to me; and working hard goes against my (tend to be) lazy nature. I just have to keep reminding myself that this is the last semester of my last year. (of highschool that is...) Ahh, but then comes college, which I am totally excited about! Along with the feelings of confusion, nervousness, and did I say confusion? I worry about the future, I always have. (bad, bad me!) But I have never pondered over the future as much as I have this past year. What college should I go to? What should I major in? Wait...I need money!!! What job should I take? Should I spend money on this? Should I hang with friends or study for my clep test? I need a paper bag to breathe into just thinking about it. What about you? Do you stress over the future? Do have any cool stories about how God has lead your life in the direction it's in now? Because no matter how confusing and stressful life is, no matter how much I want to lay down and give up, one thing always helps back up on my feet. The fact that GOD IS IN CONTROL. He knows what is going to happen and what is best for me, and I know He is in charge of my life. Those two facts=peace. I hope you have a lovely first day back to work, school, and real life. ;p ~ASHLEY~

Well I'm in the same boat you are. Worry is so easy.
I got this e-mail today:
"Worry does not empty tomorrow of its troubles -- it empties today of its strength!"

I don't have any cool stories...yet.
But wait, actually I have one that tells that God really is in control:

New Year's Eve was a great time for me planning my future & all...all excited. But come the 1st of Jan, I was a WRECK!! Just totally worried & uncertain of where & when I should get "the right" job, about school & so many things. And so I just cried & prayed.
But I went onto blogger after almost bursting w/ fear & saw a comment about one of my poems, & the girl says, "I really like that...it reminded me of Jeremiah 29:11". So of course I go to that verse, & lo & behold!!! (you'll have to look that one up ;)

So yes, God does know what He's doing! I'll pray for you, dear sis.
