Hi guys. I’m back. Who knows for how long… *smile*
It is probably a good sign that I’m not on here all the time though…it means that I must have something better to do with my time. 🙂 Or maybe it just means that I’m bored of blogging.
So lately I’ve been in that scary position of being a senior.
Should I go to college right away after I graduate? Which college? Should I stay home a year? If so, WHAT DO I DO to use that extra year profitably?
And WHAT DOES GOD SAY ABOUT ALL THIS? What is HE telling me to do? What does HE want with my life?
Sometimes I feel like God is urging me forward–like there isn’t much time to lose.
Other times I feel like He’s telling me I need to wait a bit.
I mean, I can see the pros to going.
I can also see the pros to waiting.
My best friend and her mother and I went to look at a Bible school in Wyoming. I liked it. I really liked it.
The people were friendly and outgoing. The teachers were kind and knowledgeable. The food was good. The dorms were nice. The campus was well-kept. (They also had very nice green grass. But there were nasty burrs around, so I couldn’t walk barefoot. And I didn’t like that at all.)
Overall, my impression of the place was more than favorable. I could see myself feeling quite at home there, learning a lot and making good friends.
But I still don’t know.
It’s a big step to take. But God will help me. And so far I guess He hasn’t seen fit to show me what His plan is. Maybe He never will reveal it fully.
You know, sometimes I really do wish I could see into my future. Other times I’m glad I can’t. I’d probably be terrified. So I’ll just be thankful that God can see my future…and that eventually He’ll show me what to do about college.
So now I have one choice–one good choice, that is–left for my future. And that is this: I can love and trust and lean on God as my only support. And you know what? I don’t think God minds having me in that special place.
I love you, O LORD, my strength! The LORD is my rock, my fortress and my deliverer. My God is my rock, in whom I take refuge. He is my shield, and the horn of my salvation, my stronghold.
