Light in my Forest


Ever feel lost, completely unsure of your decisions, or anything?

It’s like you’re walking through the dark forest, without your glasses, and everything is blurry. There’s no way out or in.

That’s how I felt yesterday. I felt like I was wading through murky water, with no idea what to do! I didn’t know which classes to choose, what assignments I should work on, and everything felt like a mystery. I couldn’t focus on my project, and I was so utterly and completely lost. I was in front of my computer at my desk, but not really there at the same time.

Feeling incapable and uncomfortable, I decided to chat my friend, Jan. Jan is an amazing person, and she’s very wise too. :) She’s also hilarious and fun to be around. I needed prayer and she just happened to be online. I told her how I felt, using unorganized examples, and she told me that she felt the same way sometimes too. 

Just talking to someone made me feel better, and the clouds started to clear up. I searched around online, clicking a few old bookmarks I had. I was reading a blog, and on the side was another great post. At first I laughed because it was titled “Invest in a pair of Earmuffs”. Then, I realized that it was talking about trusting in God and not caring about what other people say about you. This really spoke to me, and I think I didn’t come across it by coincidence. Thank you Jesus!

I also flipped randomly in my Bible, hoping to come across something helpful. Multiple verses told me to Trust the Lord, and made me feel on a path again. 

God was the light in my forest, the sun streaming through the murky water. I just needed to trust him.

I once was lost, but now I’m found.
