Life has a funny way of sneakin up on you...those words are courtesy of Alanis Morissette and her song Ironic. That makes me think of a video that made fun of her song. But that's beside the point. Right now I am trying to decide what I am going to do next year. I could either transfer to a Bible college, racking up a rather large amount of debt, or I could take a year off and work for a year. Both options are valid. Both have pros and cons. However, the second option may have the most pros. I just don't know. My parents and I are trying to figure out the best path for me.
I am just having a hard time giving up my dream. In church this Sunday the pastor talked about Faith. He said that living by faith is a challenge and that giving up your dreams to trust that God is faithful to take you where you need to be is difficult. Living by faith isn't easy...but I think that it's worth it. His example was Abraham, who had to exercise faith all of the time. I was really encouraged and challenged by this. I think that I need to be willing to give up my dream of going straight to another college and maybe work to that I don't have so much debt. It's not going to be easy, but if that's what my parents and I decide is best, I'll do it.
Those are my weightier thoughts of late.
