God Will be There Again

God Will be There Again

By Kaitlyn F.
So this summer I got a job working at a movie theater. Going into this job, I didn’t know anyone who worked there, and it wasn’t close to my school, so there wasn’t a big chance of knowing anybody who would also be getting a job there. I went in solo, but I did slowly make friends. Then Monday night, we all worked at the same time, so we hung around and talked while we cleaned theaters, and it was one of the best nights I had working there. And because we work at a movie theater, we can go as a group and watch free movies and get free popcorn, and just hang out with one another after work one day.

Now for college next year, I will be going to Iowa. I’m am going to a small school, where I don’t know anybody going in. For a while I was afraid that I won’t be able to make any friends while at college. God has shown me that he has helped me before make friends at the movie theater when I wasn’t trying to make friends, so why wouldn’t he help me again when I am trying to friends with the same interests and I can have a good time with. God has helped me before, so why wouldn’t he help me later.

We all encounter things in our lives, trials, challenges, troubles, and there is a good chance that we will encounter them again. The thing is that we serve a God who is constant. 
Hebrews 13:8 says,
 “Jesus Christ is the same yesterday and today and forever.” 

If he has helped you before in the past, he isn’t going to change his mind and not help you in the future. He may help you in a different way, depending in the situation, and what is best for you at the time, but he is still going to help you. I can walk confidently into college, knowing that God is there, and he wants to help me, so I don’t have to be afraid that I am going to be a loner all through college.
