Worries to prayers (Encouragement Weekly Photo Challenge #5)

BIble Verse Calligraphy

I've been out of medical school for around 5 months now and I still haven't figured out what I want to do with the rest of my life. I still have to clear up my record in UP Manila, and make sure that I'm productive while waiting.

My life right now is full UNCERTAINTIES. Questions keep buzzing from every direction:

What will I do today, tomorrow? What if I'll never figure out what I want to do? Will I be able to support myself? How about my Return Service Agreement with UP Manila, how will it resolve? Will people look at me as a quitter, as a failure? Will I be a failure? Will my parents ever accept me if I don't become a doctor?

If I allow anxiety to rule over my life, I would certainly be consumed. I might plummet into an abyss of despair. I'm not even sure what I'll find there.

There are a lot of things I can't control, and I believe that's what prayer is for. I pray so that I may find peace of mind, and hope that in the bigger scheme of things, it will all work out just fine.

Last week's encouragement: Be still

Next:  Keep moving

The Encouragement Weekly Photo Challenge is an online support system which seeks to speak to those who need words of encouragement, via photos.
