Have to share some awesome things that have happened to me in the past week. As some of you know, I've been going through a lot of discernment concerning college recently. And when I mean a lot, I mean A LOT. I've actually had to stop a couple of times in the past two weeks and just breathe - and remember to count my present blessings and how good I've got it now.
I applied to my two colleges of choice (a local secular college with a great, small Catholic group, and a Catholic college one hour away.) Well, Monday I got a call that congratulated me - I had been accepted to the Catholic college. Beings that the Catholic college has a 58% acceptance rate, you can imagine my sheer joy.
I have applied for so many scholarships and I have never heard anything back from them (all from small essay contests, etc, nothing big.) You have no idea how nice it is to actually be seen as a desirable future student...amazing!
So, after the call I started to wonder what I needed to start doing to make my final decision towards what college I want to go to in less than a year. And where do I find answers? I have found that a lot of my problems can be solved in a hour spent in adoration. So I went for two hours. :)
And I sat in front of Christ in the Eucharist and I listened. REALLY HARD. And I talked to Him, saying "All right, Lord. Thank you thank you thank you for the acceptance into the Catholic college. Now, seriously, where do you want me?" And I listened.....and got a question.
Where can you best serve Me?
And I realized that's the answer, right there in that question. I need to be looking for the best place that I can be Christ's hands and feet to the world. And when I find that place, I've found my academic home for the next four years.
Please keep me in your prayers. I have a lot of decisions to make, and am praying to make every one of those decisions in the light of God's will for my life.
God Bless all of you!
