Everything going on in my life is so weird, and there are so many uncertainties. April 1st, I relocated to Edmonton to start school. I had this whole plan that was in motion. I’d move to Edmonton April 1st, come back to Saskatoon for Easter, and start my university classes May 4th. I had this plan, and everything was going to plan! Well, it was going to plan until Covid-19 hit us. I had anxiety, because everything was so uncertain. Can I still move to Edmonton? How will I be able to come back home for easter? What is going on with school? Are there still going to be classes? I need a plan!
One night before I went to bed I heard God talk to me. He said “You have nothing to worry about, everything will be fine. I have your anxieties, you are taken care of.” The next morning I had some time to reflect and God made a way for me to get to Edmonton, it's what he wants. If I don't move, I'm ruining this plan God has made for me.
Do not be anxious about anything, but in every situation, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God. 7 And the peace of God, which transcends all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus. -Philippians 4:6-7
I've been in Alberta for almost a month and every day God makes it clear to me that I'm following him in what he wants. In a time of uncertainty, I felt like I had no control in what was going on. That's not it though, because of God I have full control of what I want to do, with his guidance. Before the pandemic happened, I was living a busy life. I didn't get to spend as much time with God that I wanted too. Now, I get to spend as much time with him, and give him my full attention. And now that I'm giving God my full attention, he is answering all of my prayers and giving me clear guidance. I have no anxieties, I have no worries, I just have “what’s next, God? What is next in my plan.”
God's got this. God's got you.
