I'm heading into my Junior year at BPC! WOW! My question is: "What's next?". It's time to start making decisions. Crazy!
Human Services is my major (mix of sociology and psychology). I want to work in a field that meets peoples needs. I love the idea of working in a home for pregnant teens, or working in a ministry whose focus is on promoting abstinence and reaching teens spiritual needs. I love teenagers! I also love crazy ministries. I say crazy as a good thing. They are non conventional. I also love conventional ministry too. I love ministry!
I would also like to work with teens who have emotional problems caused from painful divorces. I like the idea of being involved in world wide teen conferences. Also, I've thought of working in juvenile justice. Who knows. I have a lot of plans.
My desire is to find a man who has the same heart for ministry. I have often wanted to be a pastor's wife or a youth minister's wife. I just want a man who's life is fully commit to God first, me second, and our family third. :) I want to raise my family in ministry- kids with a heart for the hurting.
Sometimes I wonder: "Will I have to choose?".
Looking at this blog I see a lot of " I want". You writers are probably cringing reading this blog. However, that's not what I'm talking about. I see the "I want"s as selfish motive. That's not what I want(again with selfishness). My desire is to follow God. As a kid, I would always pray to God not to ask me to be a missionary. hahaha. To this day, I still don't want to be a foreign missionary and I don't feel called there, at least not long term. However, If God asked me to go, I would. As you can see I have matured since I was a kid. My desires have not changed, but my prayer has. My prayer is to be equipped with the ability to say yes to whatever He asks of me! I have so many desires, so many dreams, but I know ultimately He determines my steps (Proverbs 16:9).
So many dreams, so little time, but trusting all the way,
