I need advice, can you please pray for me... I had this year all planned out but my boyfriend broke up with me 2 weeks ago and my parents are getting a divorce (it was suppose to be settled/finalized yesterday in court but wasn't) due to this I can't graduate early, get a job, move to the city, and travel like I had planned. I'm anxious, it feels like everything is just falling apart :( i feel as though I'm just wasting my life
I’m so sorry to hear about your breakup, as well as your parents’ divorce. I’m so sorry you’re hurting, and I’m so sorry you’re anxious and feel like everything is falling apart.
Rest assured in God’s plan for you though, love. Rest assured that He’s got this–He’s got you–and that you are not wasting your life, and that one day in the future you will look back on this time in your life and go, “I see what you did there, God.”
Because even though it seems horrible now, even though it feels like rock bottom, it’s all part of His plan. I always think of all the things God may be protecting me from that I don’t know about. Maybe I’m running late for work so that I avoid being in an accident, maybe I fell down a flight of concrete stairs and chipped my bone and sprained my ankle five hours into a vacation with my mom and sister (true story) so that I would stay out of the ocean, etc. etc. That sort of thing.
It’s easy for me to say this. I know that. It’s much easier when you’re standing outside of the storm looking in, rather than when you’re in the thick of it. But trust me on this. Trust Him on this. Everything will be stitched back together, piece by piece. It may not look how you thought it was going to/supposed to look, but it will be perfect. Because it is from Him.
So talk to Him about this. Tell Him everything you’re thinking and feeling, and ask Him for guidance on what to do next. One step at a time, love. One step at a time. You can do this.
For I know the plans I have for you, declares the Lord, plans for welfare and not for evil, to give you a future and a hope. - Jeremiah 29:11
Trust in the Lord with all your heart,
and do not lean on your own understanding.
In all your ways acknowledge him,
and he will make straight your paths. - Proverbs 3:5-6
Sending so many prayers your way, friend. <3
All my love,
