Thinking about College....

So all day today I have had one thing on my mind: College. I can't seem to get the idea out of my head. Although I am only a freshman there is so many options, it can get kinda overwhelming! 2 Year Colleges, 4 Year Colleges, Universities, Tech Schools, Med School, No College at all, Online college, and even colleges that specialize in Performing arts. There is so many options! I have been thinking about doing a 4 year College. The idea kinda makes sense. But as you can see, there is so many options I am wondering if this would be a good choice. There is so many things that Colleges look for when you apply! For quite awhile I only thought they looked at grades. Wow, was I wrong! They also look into things like sports, and volunteer hours. This is a lot to take in and I have to admit it has started to stress me out. Please pray for me that God will lead me in looking into colleges even in my early years of High School. Thanks! :)

Night Time thoughts :)

I could not get to sleep tonight, and decided to Open the Bible to Matt. 14: 22- 33. I realized just how much I actually love this bible story. When reading it tonight I kinda had to laugh at myself thinking, Jesus here told Matthew that he had little faith after being afraid on the water. I can easily relate due to being afraid so often. It occurred to me tonight that Jesus does not want us to be afraid, instead he wants us to trust him. But in the case that we are afraid, he is here to help us and give us a hand. I really found that passage really good, and I found it spoke to me.  I think sometimes I don't give God enough credit, and tend to take matters into my own hands when afraid..thinking I need to help myself..when in reality things would be so much better off if I were to trust him and decide everything was going to be alright. There's my thoughts for the night. :) Have a good night.
