…excitement, anticipation, anxiety, questioning, wondering…
This Bible passage seems to speak to young people as they look forward to graduation.
Thoughts race through young minds on the cusp of a new world. Which direction should I go? Which school or vocation should I pursue? …and the age old question – What if I fail?
So many opportunities before them in high school and beyond. If one tries, there is an activity or pursuit that will fit their talents, personalities and interests.
I am usually in envy of young people with their whole adult lives ahead of them, but should I be? I am in a transition phase, as well, but I have many years of experiences and efforts behind me. I already know what I can and cannot do so that narrows the field. (Lots of things I use to be able to do that are not options now) I also know what I want to do which is also a plus.
The big question, though, is what SHOULD I do?
O.K., so maybe I’m not so different from these young guys and gals after all! Maybe the Bible passage is a good one for all of us in any of our stages in life. Hmmm…
