A Big Step

Graduation: done.

I can't believe it. But, yes...summer is indeed here, and I have officially completed high school. I've tried figuring out exactly what I feel about completing this big step in my life. It's not really only happines; I mean, I loved all my high school years...they're what made me, me. And it's not total sadness, cuz as great as high school was, I would like to move on now, thank you. lol But I think I've come to the conclusion that it's a mix of relief, satisfaction, excitement, and concern. I'm relieved to be DONE. I mean, I've been ready for quite a while to move on to bigger and better things; I'm just READY for college. I feel satisfaction in knowing I made the most of these past 4 years, learned a lot about life, myself, the world, and God. I'm excited, because the world is at my fingertips, and the endless paths of life are available for my walking. But I'm concerned, because I'm human. And I change my mind, I make mistakes, and I don't always listen to Him. Before, if I made mistakes, I had the excuse that I'm just learning this 'life' thing...I'm just a kid/teen. But, being an adult now, it's scarier out there. If I make a big enough mistake, if I don't listen to could seriously impact my life. But, I think He'll make this an enjoyable ride, even with it's bumps, as long as He's there. And I've learned (not that I didn't know before) that a real relationship with God is THE most important part of your Christian walk with Christ. You can't walk with Christ, if you don't KNOW Christ...

"Come near to Christ, and He will come near to you." -James 4:8

So...what are my thoughts about where I am in life...?
God's my taxi driver...and I have no clue where we're going. :)
