Jesus Christ is the same yesterday and today and forever.
- Hebrews 13:8
While everything in my life is constantly changing and moving so fast I feel as if I can’t keep up with it, I know that I can hold on to the hope I have in God. He is unchanging, forever faithful, and forever loving. When I feel like my own desires and dreams change suddenly and it becomes overwhelming and scary, I know I can run to God and He will hear me. He is the Everlasting One.
I posted this a few days ago because at that moment I read it, I saw how God has done that in the past for me. I want to repost this again today because I see where God may be bringing me and how He will in the near future. Four years ago, as I applied to colleges, I didn’t know exactly where I wanted go or what I wanted to study yet either. I had an idea, but I still wasn’t sure what was the right choice. But He closed the doors I didn’t need to go through and kept one open. He brought me to CSULB and He’s brought me through the past 4 years, showing me how He knew all along this was the right path for me. Now, after applying to PT schools, He’s brought me to one already. Someone said, “You had little faith you’d even get into this school, but God has opened this door for you. If God is going to get you into USC, He is going to get you through USC.” WELL LOOKIE THERE, she said the exact same words as this post shows. Now it’s my choice whether to let finances worry me and deter me or to let God continue to show me just how faithful He is and how He provides for His children. I’m praying for His peace in making the final decision soon.
"Therefore do not worry about tomorrow, for tomorrow will worry about itself. Each day has enough trouble of its own.” - Matthew 6:34
“Let us hold unswervingly to the hope we profess, for he who promised is faithful.” - Hebrews 10:23
But quiet confidence in God alone breeds stability and delight amid ‘all the changing scenes of life.’ - DA Carson (Big God)
The most reasonable thing possible is to trust God, who has proven Himself trustworthy. That’s why the psalmist said in Psalm 130:5: “I wait for the Lord, and my soul does wait, and in His word do I hope.” - Britt Merrick (Big God)
This was the chapter I read and studied in small groups with MSF at the time I just turned in my applications for PT school. I remember each word spoke loudly to me about what I should do next as I waited. As we wait, in faith, we need to “realize our faith is to be an active faith.” So I honestly forgot about applications, except the few times I had to deal with transcripts.
7 And the peace of God, which transcends all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus. - Phil 4:7
This was a verse I read this past week and it reminded me of where I was in this whole application process. Anyway, all I have been thinking about lately is getting finals over with and then having fun with friends and family! Well today…… YAYYY! I got accepted into one of the PT programs!!!!!!!!!!!!!! :D I know I’ll have somewhere to go at least yay!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Praise God because I truly know I couldn’t do this myself ever. It was truly a blessing unexpected. :)
