So I’ve been wondering.
I’ve just recently graduated and I’ll be heading off to college August 15. My life is changing more now than it ever has before. I’m going to be living on my own, taking are of myself, deciding my own educational path and where that path will lead me.
When I was little, I imagined that my entire life was a story that God was reading to his angels. I imagined that it was a pop-up book that moved like magic, and that’s how God always kept track of me and took care of me.
Of course, as I grew older, I realized that couldn’t work because God watched over everyone, not just me, so he couldn’t just be reading the angels a story about me. Plus, I can’t imagine the angels sitting around to have a children’s book read to them. Rather, I imagine they’d be reading books on their own time.
What’s my point in all of this?
Well, sometimes I wonder if I was right. When I was little, I mean. They say that major changes in your life (like the change I’m facing now) are the start of new chapters in your story. If people use that reference so often, who’s to say I was wrong?
Maybe I am a book character in some exciting novel about my life, and God doesn’t necessarily need to read it because he’s already read it. Maybe you all are as well.
In that case, I wonder what kind of character I would be? I don’t think I’m the head protagonist, but maybe a supporting character whom most people don’t actually pay much mind to, but some people love.
Who knows? All we can do is wonder…
