"While going through school, it can be daunting to think about what the future holds. We can easily become overwhelmed by the many possibilities and despair when considering one's own fears. While we cannot know the future with certainty, we can take comfort in God's promises: ''For I know the plans I have for you, declares the Lord, plans for welfare and not for evil, to give you a future and a hope.' Jeremiah 29:11. Regardless of our ability, we can trust that the Lord's plan for us is excellent."
