School is coming to an end (Lord-willing). I finished the two Missions classes I had to take as electives and right now I’m re-taking Psychology Statistics. Initially I was taking the class in the spring but decided to withdraw because I could not understand a thing and struggled to keep up while taking another class. If all goes well (PLEASE PRAY!), my college career will soon come to an end. Though it doesn’t feel soon enough while taking Psychology Stats! Shortly after that class ends, I’m hopping on a plane and going back to the Chi to visit my fam out there. I seriously cannot wait.
After that, I have no idea. When I moved back to NY, my intention was to go straight on to grad school for counseling and I was accepted into a program for the fall, but it seems that God has closed that door. I had no peace about taking out a loan to do something I was unsure about. I know the Lord led me to pursue Psychology and Christian Counseling for my undergrad, but it seems He is not leading me to go down the professional route in grad school. At least not right now. And I’m totally okay with that. In fact, I have grown to care much more about missions than I ever did about becoming a professional counselor. The burden I have for India is so huge, I cannot even explain. I’ve never been there (though I am praying for an opportunity to go) but I have a love for the people. I think about and pray for India every day, particularly the girls who are being enslaved in human trafficking. I know in my heart that I’m called to do something for them, something more than just a monthly contribution. We have been so blessed here in America and there is so much that we can do for the people of India without ever leaving the U.S. – I’ll definitely be writing more about that in the future. In the meantime, if you haven’t read my last post in May, check it out. And check out the ministry, As Our Own.
Anyway, aside from a gross heat wave going on in New York right now, that’s about it. I guess this post wasn’t so quick after all. Lots more to share but I need to go and get my homework done. Trusting God for His grace to get me through the final stretch!
Here's one of the many scriptures that has gotten me through this crazy journey (and continues to help me through!)…
But He said to me, “My grace is sufficient for you, for my power is made perfect in weakness.” Therefore I will boast all the more gladly about my weaknesses, so that Christ’s power may rest on me. That is why, for Christ’s sake, I delight in weaknesses, in insults, in hardships, in persecutions, in difficulties. For when I am weak, then I am strong. - 2 Corinthians 12:9-10
His grace truly is sufficient! Rest in Him today.
