Being Lead

I have a lot going on in my life right now. Today is one month from graduation, I will be moving in with my sister the week leading up to graduation, and I will also have finals that week. I am less than 5 months from getting married, and my best friend is getting married 6 weeks after me. And this is just the big stuff, this doesn't even include the little everyday things that are always on my never ending to-do list. Well last night. I let a friend of mine come over and use my oven to make cupcakes for her roommate's birthday. She came back over this morning while I was in class to ice them and left a note on my desk. The part that inspired this blog was this: "Hang in there...just a month to go! And don't worry...God will lead you where he wants you!" That got me thinking about how I was lead to ACC (becoming Point University) by God a few years ago. What got me here was the opportunity to play basketball for the school and I thought he wanted me to be a youth minister. In one month I will graduate as an English major, and I only played one season of basketball. But I know without a shadow of a doubt, God lead me to exactly where he wanted me to be. Believe it or not, there are people who are planning on transferring schools just because of our name change. And I have heard of some high school students who where interested in attending school here who are now not because of the name change. If you are reading this and fall into one of those two categories, remember this; God did not call you to this school because of the name. Just like he didn't call me here to be a youth minister. But if I would have transferred after changing my major, how far I would have been for his plan for me! That little note also relieved some of my stresses about finding a job. If I had transferred, that friend and I wouldn't have a relationship today. I know that I was lead to Point University for a reason.

Wow. Thank you so much. This is something I needed to hear. I'll be attending ACC/Point U in the fall - I'll be transferring from the University of Arizona all the way to Georgia. Tucson is where I've grown up - all my friends and family are here. And it's hard to think about leaving them for school. But I know that I'm being lead to ACC/Point U for a reason, that it's part of God's plan.
God bless you in the last leg of your college journey! You can do it!
