If you don't already know, I am a Judaic Studies Major (Judaic= Jewish). No, I'm not Jewish. (Yes, I knew you were going to ask) This was not the program I thought I'd be in when I graduated from high school but I love it and the only way to describe why this is my field of study is to say the God orchestrated all of it. I know that may sound crazy but I truly believe that God has always know what I would to in college (an knows what I will do for the rest of my life) and He has made it clear and made a way for it to all happen.
This new job doesn't actually have anything to do with my major (I knew you would ask that too) and I'm ok with that. I have struggled with not having a work field that correlates to degree. There have been times I have wondered if I made the right choice. I have been worried. I have been scared. I have questioned the Lord's plan. All of these reactions are normal, I know but that doesn't make them the correct response. I should not have worried or allowed fear to grip my heart like that. But I did and God once again proved Himself faithful to me.
His Providence doesn't always come the way we expect it to, though. Over the next two and a half months, I will be working full-time and be a full-time student. This will be C-R-A-Z-Y at the least but totally worth it in the end. I know that it will be the hardest thing I have ever done thus far in my life. This was not a decision I took lightly. I prayed, sought wise counsel and considered all angles possible before making my decision. I know there will be times when I wonder what I was thinking. I know there will be times when I wonder if I can make it through to graduation (December 17!!!). I also know that the God who called me will give me what I need (not what I want or what I think I need) to compete the task He has set before me. I know that my God will supply all my needs. I know that my God is faithful and will not leave me to walk this path alone.
I am nervous. This is a big step but I am excited. I am excited to see what the Lord has planned in all of this and how He used it in my life. I am excited for the possibilities it holds for my little family. More than all of this, I am thankful to serve a faithful, loving God who provides for all my needs in His own way and in His own time.
