My senioritis set in the first day of my senior year of high school. I couldn’t wait to be done. When graduation finally rolled around, I was anxious to move on with my life. Perhaps you have breathed the same sigh of relief.
Even if your emotions are mixed, any lingering sadness will soon fade into a twinge of nostalgia. Soon, you’ll be writing a new chapter of your life. Before you know it, high school will fade into a distant memory, and college will begin setting the stage for your whole life.

I can still see my sixteen-year-old self, surrounded by people my age, and yet feeling completely alone. I timidly tried to befriend one girl. Although she was very kind, I could tell I wasn’t getting anywhere. I was friendless in a room full of friends.
I decided to pray about it. A friend wasn’t too much to ask for, was it? It wasn’t a bad request. Days went by, then weeks. Then months. No friend. My prayers became more demanding. Why wasn’t God filling the need He Himself gave me?

Ashley arrives home from school. As she comes in the back door after skipping through the neighbor’s yard, she shouts, “Is there anything to eat?” From deep in the apartment comes a voice saying, “You are just like your father. Always looking for handouts.” Ashley shrugs and, without saying a word, turns and wanders toward the street with her head down. It’s one of those days. She puts in her earbuds and walks down the street.
