It can be a scary thing, the future.
But we don't need to worry. God knows our future. He has a plan for each one of us, and we just need to trust Him.
Here are some things about the future that have been on my heart lately.
1. It has been such a blessing working in children's church with my grandma. Whether it's singing, saying Genesis 1:1 in french, fetching tissues, gathering crayons, or searching other classrooms for a map, I love every minute of it.

I hope that kids will be a huge part of my future.
There is a special place in my heart for kids with disabilities, whether physical or mental.
I know a little boy who has autism. He seriously is one of the sweetest kids I've ever met. Yet he always pushes himself down, thinking he is unable to do things that I know he can.
And sometimes he's not the only one who pushes himself down.
I want to hug them all and tell them it's okay. It's okay if it's takes longer for you to understand. It's okay if it's harder for you to speak. Take your time and don't listen to what they say.
They need a friend and that's who I want to be.
2. Another thing that I hope will be a big part of my future is writing.
I've loved writing since I was in kindergarten. I started off writing mysteries, but when I wrote a story on William Tyndale for school, I found what I really loved. Historical fiction.
I'm am currently working on my first novel. Now every time I hear the song "It is Well with My Soul", I think I might cry. Because I know what was behind that song.
These are just two things that I hope to see in my future. But God has a plan, and it could be totally different. Who knows :)
