I'll throw my two cents in Nathan. I think the best thing you can do now
is pray. That sounds trite. But I mean it in all seriousness. God called
Abraham (then Abram) 25 years before Issac was born. Think of all the
stories about Abraham that happened before Issac. And how they shaped
the Jewish culture and our own understanding of God.

I often take comfort in the fact that God works His plan in spite of me
(and my sins). He knows where your life is going. It's very frightening
to give up the illusion of control. I personally feel safer after
talking with the One who's really running my life.
