When nothing is sure, everything is possible – Margaret Drabble
Yesterday, I called home. Dad and I talked about a few things including the state of the Nigerian economy and my graduation.
Later in the day, I looked through job boards and job banks online for positions for recent university graduates as I wanted to get a sense of what was available.
Due to the fact that a Bachelor’s degree in Psychology is insufficient in securing a job in the field, I was open to other possibilities.
I came away heaving sighs, a little troubled and a little assured of the fact that I still had some time.
I tried to remind myself of the lessons I had learned at the retreat centered around discernment that I attended last weekend.
Yet for a brief moment, I pondered on what would happen if I was unable to secure employment.
It took a little while for me to remind myself of who and most importantly whose I was. My heavenly father happens to be the same one who parted the Red Sea and fed multitudes with five loaves of bread and two fish.
If nothing, I know that looking too far ahead will overwhelm me because the schedule for my life is not in my hands.
Focusing on where I am at the moment and doing the best I can right now, is enough. Wherever I find myself, I will pray as if everything depends on God and work as if everything depends on me.
The fact that I don’t see the road ahead, only means that there are many surprises yet to be unwrapped.
In the end, I know that I will be okay because mom and dad will never stop praying for me.
