Life Experience

I think I'm having a not quite a quarter life crisis.
Being here at Princeton this summer, there have been a lot of instances where I wish that I didn't come straight here. I wish that I had taken a year off and got a job somewhere doing something ministry related and just dealing with people. I've been doing school for the past 16 years and I'm wondering if it might be time for a break. There are so many people here that took time between college and seminary and went abroad or worked for non-profits. They have life experience that they can relate to what they're learning and I don't have that.

  1. Take some comfort in knowing that God has called you to this particular place at this particular time in your life - even sans life experience. Not to sound like a Christian Hallmark card, but the path you've been called to walk down belongs to no one else but you, and is made up of YOUR life experiences. Not the ones you feel like you should have had.

    Take some comfort in that, and in the fact that God will throw you plenty of life experience over the next 3+ years to more than make up for what you feel like you lack right now.
