Graduation happened! What’s next?

You Graduated What Next Blog

Congratulations on graduating!  That next step that has been always around the corner has finally come! Life after high school. It’s a very exciting but may also be an intimidating step for most of you. You’ve worked diligently in your books all year to finally walk across that stage and earn your diploma.

But now many of you have a different challenge ahead. Some of you are going straight into college, others pursuing a trade, and then others going straight into the workforce after they graduate. Whatever your path may be, we have a few lines of advice for you.

Be Patient.

Of course, we want to be successful right away, like get that nice car and live in that nice house. However, God may have different plans. Success isn’t always overnight. Often, God wants us to grow through the wealth of our experiences not through the wealth in our wallets.

Don’t Worry.

God has his hand on you and has a plan for you. He will take care of you even when life gets difficult. You may not know where you’ll be in 10 years, but don’t worry.  God knows and will be with you as you get there.

Plan.

Now I know we just said to not worry, but that doesn’t mean to not prepare. Do you know what you enjoy doing? Do research on how other people made your passion their life’s career. Also, save for the future. Put a little money aside each week or month. Your future self will thank you.

Do Your Best.

Finally, do your best in all circumstances. It may seem difficult or disheartening at times, but don’t give up! When you do your best, you’ll easily stand out among those around you. Even in a job that pays next to nothing, do your best. The people over you will take notice.

“’For I know the plans I have for you,’ says the LORD. ‘They are plans for good and not for disaster, to give you a future and a hope.’” – Jeremiah 29:11
