” The LORD has done great things for us, and we are filled with joy.” ~Psalm 126:3
As I think back over the past year, I marvel at the great things the Lord has done in my life. He has taught me so much about Himself and who I am in Him. He has also guided me into what is now a new season in my life. One year ago I would have told you “Absolutely Not” if you asked me was I considering futhering my education immediately following my undergraduate degree. However, over the past six months the Lord slowly began to change my perspective, and gave me the desire to pursue my masters in counseling. Counseling is a field that has been an interest of mine since high school, but not something I felt led to pursue until now.
So here I am months later getting ready to move back to Wake Forest, North Carolina where I also spent a year of my undergrad, to pursue my masters in Biblical Counseling at Southeastern Baptist Theological Seminary. I am excited about this transition, and know that it is exactly what the Lord wants me to do. The Lord has confirmed in so many ways that I am doing the right thing, and has so graciously provided me the means to do it. He has allowed me to receive a full tuition scholarship, and a scholarship that also provides for part of my housing. Thanks to all of you who prayed with me regarding that. Without this provision I would not be able to continue my education. I am in awe of how God provides for His children in His time and that it is always enough, and that I should never doubt that God is in control of every detail of my life.
As we are now in the beginning of 2009, I look forward to all God has in store for me in the upcoming year. I am excited about being back in WF reconnecting with old friends and making new ones, and most importantly serving Him daily! Thanks to my friends and family for your continued support and prayers during this time. You guys are awesome and I love you! I will do my best to keep you updated via the blog.
Since I did not post before Christmas I hope you all had a good holiday and are beginning this new year refreshed, and that you take some time today to thank God for the great things He has done in your life!
