DEAR BILLY GRAHAM: I graduated from college recently, and now I cant get a decent job. I have a temporary job in a restaurant, but Im beginning to think I wasted four years of my life by going to college. I know this isnt a spiritual question, but do you have any advice? Z.J.

DEAR Z.J.: The most important thing I can tell you is that God is concerned about every detail of your life, including your search for the right job. The Bible says, Nothing in all creation is hidden from Gods sight (Hebrews 4:13).
In other words, some things may seem more spiritual to us than others, but in reality everything we do has a spiritual side to it. If God didnt love you he wouldnt be concerned about your situation, but he does love you, and he is concerned. Remember: Jesus Christ proved that God loves us by giving his life for us. If you have never put your life into his hands, I urge you to do so today.
Dont be discouraged, and dont fall into the error of thinking youve wasted the last four years. If you hadnt gone to college, you might well spend the rest of your life in a low-paying job. Thank God for the opportunities hes given you, and trust him to lead you to the place his has for you in the future. The Bible says, Commit your way to the Lord; trust in him (Psalm 37:5).
In the meantime, ask God to help you have a good attitude, and to be the best employee you can possibly be. Life doesnt always turn out the way we wish it would, but God knows whats best for us and will guide us as we pray and seek his will.
