Something I’ve been comtemplating a lot since the beginning of the semester is the idea of starting over. We have all dreamed of leaving our current high stress, high octane, routine lives to escape to a place where we can clear our head for awhile. For many of us, this was one draw to enter college. Little did I know that college would be the hardest and most stressful times I have had. I also wouldn’t trade one second of my experiences here for anything. They have shaped me in ways that I will never fully understand. Just out of high school, I was a shy, procrastinating, unsure teenager who had no idea what I to do with the rest of my life. Three years later, I am a leader, an avid procratinator, and have a passion for psychology and people, but am still a little unclear of my future. Some things haven’t changed 🙂 With God’s guidance and this new grasp of myself, I am finally preparing to study abroad. I have never been so nervous and excited. I often question whether this is the path God has led me to or whether it is my own selfish reasons. The more I reflect, the more sure I am that God has been preparing me for exactly this. I pray that you are also changed by God’s presence in your lives throughout your remaining years in college. Never stop seeking to hear God’s call in your lives. Never give up out of fear, I promise God will take care of you through it all. These years will try you in ways you never imagined, but they will also shape you in ways you never expected. In the word’s of the Benediction, “God is with you, go in peace. Amen.”
