What do you do when things don’t turn out like you thought they would?

What do you do when you thought you knew what your life, at least for the near future, would be like, but the thing you were gonna do becomes no longer available?

This is what my weekend’s been like…

First, I hung out with my amazing friends who made sure I was okay and kept my mind off of things.

Second, I stayed in my room and binged watched shows for like 36 hours.

Third, I got out of my apartment and went for a walk to clear my head.

Now, when I go to clear my head that usually means I talk to God about the things pressing on my heart. So, I did and my main question was “What am I supposed to do now?” The thing I was planning on was going to take up my time and, besides school, was going to be my main focus for this semester – but it didn’t work out, so… now what?

As I was walking I thought of an idea here and there, but I really just took the time to breathe. On my way back to my dorm I happened to run into one of my friends. She asked me how I was doing, encouraged me, and gave me a Krispy Kreme donut (which is my favorite)! I started walking back to my dorm and thanked God that He had placed her in my path. Then it hit me… I felt like God was saying that I just need to take one step at a time and that, as I do, He will lead me to what I need to do and where I need to be this semester.

When I got back to my dorm one of my favorite Meredith Andrews’ songs started playing, Soar.

The lyrics say…

Here I remind myself what You said over me
Here I remind my soul who You are
You said You won’t relent
Won’t let go, won’t forget
Every promise You have whispered to my heart

As I wait, As I wait on You
I’m gonna run and not grow weary
I’m gonna walk and not grow faint
Rise up on wings like eagles
To soar
I know with everything you’re with me
I know you’re working as I wait
Lift me up on wings like eagles
To soar

This desert holds a song I will sing, on and on
You’re a river when the ground I walk is dry
You will set the crooked straight
Clear my path, make a way
You will lead me from the valley to the heights

Creator, Keeper
Your name is greater than anything I’ve faced
Sustainer, Savior,
Stronghold breaker
Your name is greater than anything I’ve faced

He keeps His word and His promises, He guides me and leads me to where I need to be, and AS I WAIT on Him I will run and not grow weary, walk and not faint, rise UP on wings like eagles to SOAR. I know that He is with me and WORKING AS I WAIT. He’ll lift me up on wings like eagles to SOAR.

So, when your plans go in a completely different direction and you don’t know what happens next TRUST that God keeps His promises, He guides you, and as you wait, taking one step at a time, He will lift you up on wings like eagles to SOAR.
