Yesterday, I received a letter from the University of Texas at Austin stating that I was denied admission to their Masters in Latin American Studies program.  This was my top choice.  Now I wonder: what to do after graduation?  Perhaps teach and pursue an MIT?  Perhaps Peace Corps?  Southern California (my dad's side)?  Seattle (my mom's side)?  Guam (my girlfriend/soon-to-be-fiance's side)?

Please pray for wisdom, guidance; that the Lord's will be done.

Lord have mercy on His servants!

I know, these things are oftenvery frustrating,and you ownder if hte Lord has a plan for you. Please let me assure that He does; this plan is unfolding fo ryou now, and your anxiety is caused because His plan was not exactly what you had expected. Believe me, I've been in the same spot you are.

Remember to pray, and be confident in knowing that this plan the Lord has is to fulfill your calling as His servant, and will only help you in your salvation.

May He turn the headlights on to show you your path.

If you're living a happy life as a Christian, you're doing something wrong.
