Post-graduation....
« on: March 15, 2007, 11:45:58 AM »
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 the Lord bless you and guide you, and have mercy on you!
"If you are going to serve the Lord, be prepared for times when you will be put to the test. Be sincere and determined. Keep calm when trouble comes. Stay with the Lord; never abandon Him and you will be prosperous at the end of your days. Accept whatever happens to you. Even if you suffer humiliation, be patient. Gold is tested by fire and human character is tested in the furnace of humiliation. Trust the Lord and He will help you. Walk straight in His ways and put your hope in Him. " Sir 2:1-6

Lord have mercy.
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.
