Having been a Christian for many years before starting University, I thought that I knew all the answers and would not struggle at all when leaving home. However, I found adjusting to a new city very overwhelming and struggled with feelings of inadequacy. The only person I knew I could lean on for reassurance was God as he continued to show me that he had plans for me that were far greater than I could ever imagine. 

Being surrounded by so many different opportunities and new experiences was exciting but I was struck by the fact that there is so much MORE to life than all of these things. None of these supposed exciting experiences will ever satisfy. Jesus says ‘I have come that they may have life, and have it to the full’ (John 10:10) and for me this is why I can say, there is so much more to life with Jesus in it!
