I Believe That God Has A Plan For My Life

I have a very good life but parts of my life haven’t been easy. There are times where everything goes wrong and it feels like the world is crashing down on me. Then there are times when everything is going right and it feels like nothing bad could ever happen. God has control over everything that happens in my life. I believe that God has a plan for my life.

People are always asking me what I want to be when I get older. I always answer with I don’t know. There has never been a certain profession that has stuck out to me. Even though I am in high school I still don’t know what I want to do with my life. I do believe that God will give me a sign. He will show me what I should do with my life. As long as I am listening, God will lead me down the right path.

There are parts of my life that I wish hadn’t happened. These are times where I question God about why things happen. God put these experiences in my life to teach me something. About seven months ago one of my old softball coaches died. I knew him for about a year, and he passed away very unexpectedly. He left behind a family and a lot of people that loved him. I was very sad after he died. There was a reason that God gave me this experience. I believe that God wanted to show me that the people I love aren’t going to be here forever. He taught me to treasure the moments I spend with my family and friends and don’t take anything for granted. This was part of God’s plan for my life.

God has also put moments of joy in my life. There have been many times where I feel like I am the happiest person in the world and nothing can go wrong. Most of those times come when I am hanging out with my friends and my family. God has given me great friends and family and that is part of his plan to make me happy. I know that God has something great in store for me. I am thankful for everything he has given me. His plan for my life might not be the easiest plan or what I want it to be, but I know that in the end everything will work out.

God truly loves me and His goal is for me to be happy. There might be a few bumps along the road, but everything will be fine. God doesn’t give us anything that we can’t handle. Whatever he wants me to do will be perfect for me. God has a plan for my life and it is going to be great.
