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.God is within her, she will not fall; God will help her at break of day. - Psalm 46:5 Click To Tweet
