Chiseled

“When someone doesn’t fit your stereotypical view of a Christian, you’ve already shortened the arm of God.

Everyone is accountable, but everyone is also being chiseled in their personal relationship with Christ — and you are not the judge of that. You don’t get to judge someone’s life over a tiny slice of their lifetime.”

Truthist (haha) thing I’ve read. Thank you J.S. Park for your words. They touch me everyday as I try to find the ways of life while being a Christian. Waking up each morning and picking up the cross is a chosen lifestyle.

Where do you see yourself in 5 years?

The number one question I was asked in high school when applying to colleges (or life after high school in general), was the following, “Describe where you see yourself in five years.” Umm, ok. Well obviously college takes about four years, sooo probably hunting down a job if I didn’t have one coming out of college. So, I didn’t feel “ready” to even be able to answer that question. Being a junior in college, I think maybe now would be an appropriate time for the same question. Maybe this will be a popular question? Nah, most likely it’ll be “Are you dating anyone?” question, let’s be honest. Everyone can relate.

So, in five years I will be 25 years old. I plan on going to grad school after graduating with my bachelor degree. Therefore, in about five years, I will be done with school for the rest of my life (hopefully). Here’s a list of what I think my life will look like:

  • Most likely, I will accept a job offer and move to wherever that location is.
  • I hope to be debt free and pay off any grad school loans.
  • If I don’t get a job right out of graduate school, I told myself that’s a “meant-to-be” situation and I would probably travel outside the country. Of course, when all else fails, direct yourself to something you love. In my case it’s hopping onto airplanes.
  • If I’m called in a different direction other than having a full-time job, I will go that direction. I’ve found in the past that always trusting God’s instincts rather than my own is always the way to go.
  • On the same note as traveling, I’m required (long story) to take a trip with a few guidelines. The first guideline is that it has to be somewhere where I’ve never been and it needs to be done BEFORE I’m 25. So I might be able to squeeze it in right after grad school finishes. I’ll keep you posted.
  • Most likely won’t be in a relationship; unless it’s God’s plan. I’ll also keep you posted on that.
  • My relationship with Christ to be ever more closer than ever. Each year I grow so much in my trust and faith in the Lord. Although it’s not an overnight process (at least not for me), I know that I try hard to rely on Him and stay rooted in my faith.
  • Start doing medical missions! Why not use my education of nutrition to help countries that aren’t able to receive the education I did? HELLO. Yes please.

Alright, this is all I can think of. It’s mostly a broad overview, but I’m not good with details in general so what more could you expect.
