This is a guest post from Jenny Ecklund. Jenny is a 20 something from Dallas that is a regular on this blog and twitter. I have asked her to share her story as a 20 something college student. What you will find in this post is a unique story that is probably similar to your own story. Jenny blogs at Cartoonrebellion.net and is on twitter @jennyecklund
Im poor. Im lonely. Im questioning how i’ve spent the last few years of my life.
At times I question if I will end up poor, or living at home with my sister. Sometimes I wonder if I’ll just end up failing. My friends are kind of in the same boat. We like to call it our quarter of life crises. Yep, we’ve come up with a term for it.
But really, as I look around my classroom I am not that much different than my peers. We really aren’t going through a crises.
We are just 20-somethings about to graduate college.
I wonder if i will have to do it alone, as most of my friends are off getting engaged.
I wonder if i will end up ever getting a job other than being a nanny, as many of my friends have started their careers.
I wonder if i will ever be able to buy a house, or have kids as my sister has already started that chapter of her life.
But the thing is, I am learning to stop looking around. To stop panicking about being single, a twenty something, without any idea of what the future will hold. Why? Because God’s plan is awesome. And I know that with all my heart.
So why am I scared to death about never amounting to anything?. Isn’t His plan perfect? Do I really have a place to doubt? Hasn’t he opened my eyes to what he’s called me to do?
