God intends you to live the blessed life. "For I know the thoughts that I think toward you, says the LORD, thoughts of peace and not of evil, to give you a future and a hope." Jeremiah 29:11 High school and college graduation isn't the pinnacle of life, it's just the beginning. Here are 7 choices a graduate can make to completely revolutionize their life.

God wants to give you these 6 things from Ephesians 3:16-19

  • to be strengthened with might through His Spirit in the inner man,
  • that Christ may dwell in your hearts through faith;
  • that you, being rooted and grounded in love, (life stable, secure)
  • may be able to comprehend with all the saints what is the width and length and depth and height— (live higher, wider longer and deeper than ever before)
  • to know the love of Christ which passes knowledge;
  • that you may be filled with all the fullness of God.

"Do not be deceived, my beloved brethren. Every good gift and every perfect gift is from above, and comes down from the Father of lights, with whom there is no variation or shadow of turning. Of His own will He brought us forth by the word of truth, that we might be a kind of firstfruits of His creatures."
