There’s an ongoing battle inside of me today; a battle against anxiety and fear. I don’t know if it’s just me or there is really a post-graduation and pre-employment anxiety. I’m starting to look for a job this morning and the more I send out my CV to employers (on Jobstreet), the more I feel like I’m not really good enough; I feel like I won’t pass their exams or interviews, I feel like I’m not really prepared for what’s in store for me in the real world.
However, I was then reminded that I have a God. (No, I did not forget Him. I was just too completely drowned with all these lies and negatives.) God reminded me of His word, His promises; He is within me, I will not fall. This gives my anxious heart a sense of boldness, confidence, and hope. I may be the least competitive among the applicants, but I have a God who goes before me and secured my future. I have a God who gives me all the knowledge and confidence I need. I have a God who will guide me and will not let me fall. I have a God who have overcome the world and all its struggles.
I will just keep this short and straight because this is supposed to be an Instagram and Twitter post, but since it exceeds 140 characters, I decided to post this here instead. I know I’m not the only one experiencing anxiety and fear mostly over the unknown future and their capabilities, but let’s be reminded of to His beautiful promises to us.
