Dear Grace...

I've picked out my career to start university in the fall. How do I know I picked the right one?


Dear Fred,

Begin, if you haven’t already, to have an ongoing conversation with God. God loves you very much and He truly wants the best for you. He alone knows your future. And if you trust Him, He has a plan for your life. “For I know the plans I have for you, declares the Lord, plans to prosper you and not to harm you. Plans to give you hope and a future” (Jeremiah 29:11).

Also, make time to be alone in silence with God. He gave us two ears and one mouth. We need to listen more than we speak. In the quietness He will speak into your life through His Word, through people and through life situations. He will open some doors and close others.

Be careful not to set your future plans in stone. God has a way of moving stones to give you something you never even dreamed of.
