Here It Comes!

I am about to embark on my college journey.  I am mentally as prepared as I can be, and that’s what is most important, I think.

I have heard that one of the hardest parts in the first two weeks of college life is the homesickness and loneliness.  So, I am getting to know some of my fellow freshmen before I arrive.  Just yesterday I began to talk with a girl from Colorado who will be a freshman.  It is neat to think she might be living in a dorm in my hall. 

That is one thing I like about the college I’m going to: all of the freshman girls have to live in a particular dorm.  That means that I will be living with people I will probably see and interact with for the next four years.

Over the past couple of days, I have been praying about my calling.  I know for sure that God wants me to be in full-time ministry– I just don’t know what yet.  Today I was researching different ministries in a city close to my college, and found a ministry to homeless people.

Don’t ask me why, but I think that’s who I want to be serving: homeless people.  I’ve had a desire, almost a stirring, to get involved with ministering to the homeless, for the past couple of years, but for some reason, God has kept closing the doors for me to do that.  I don’t know why.  Maybe the time will be right this fall.

I hope so.
