Current mood: confused
Subject: Some stuff going on:
Ok, so, I've been having conflicted ideas about my future, but I will give an update before I go into what's going on with me personally right now.

Update:
I'm no longer on my way to Liberty University. I just don't think that's where God is leading me and so therefore I am headed to Campbell University... but not immediately.
Right now I'm a student at FTCC (Fayetteville Technical Community College), and I'm doing alright I guess.
I've been the Youth Worship Band leader at Real Life Church for a while now, and I'm loving every minute of it.
Again, I'm very involved with my church and I'm doing alright at school and such.

What's going on with me now:
Alright, now down to the whole point of this post.
I've been in deep with my church and such. However, I'm very deep and near the end with this semester in school... and it seems the closer I get to the end of the semester, the more and more school seems to get in the way of all that I want to involve myself with in church.
Now, I want to tell all of you straight up: I may take a year or so off of school it self (I'm not going to stop going to school... but I think I may need a break from that), and I have heard a lot about the peace corps and how the people involved can get college credit for the work that is done... so I may be looking into involving myself in that and then going back to school after serving some time there.
I am just having to go through a lot of stuff in my life right now kind of finding myself (for lack of a better term), getting over some past experiences... kind of digging up everything and healing from all of it (which may mean me going to another counselor or something), and all that good stuff.

I have a lot of decisions that need to be made within me, and I have a lot to go other emotionally so that I can become as a clean slate for God so that he can make me how he wants me to be/how I should be in his sight.

Just pray for me... that's really all that anyone can do for me at this time.

You do, and I found that out after posting this actually. So I guess thrive Africa is the mission organization for me at the moment.

Those are all legitimate concerns, but remember that God is bigger than the church and mission fields. It's not like he's absent when you walk into a class room or do your homework. Christ was as much about the mundane day to day stuff as he was about reaching out in tremendous ways. Really it comes down to doing what you do well, doing it for joy, and doing it for God. Love God and love people and it works out. Don't bog yourself down with misplaced illusions of obligation to certain courses of action. It really is as simple as love.

The beauty of free will is that you're not obligated to do anything other than love. He knows our limitations and he's not going to ask you to make decisions based on information you don't have.

And as for the part about becoming a clean slate, don't think for a minute you have to become a certain way before God can work with you. That's a blatant mistruth. God can do whatever he damn well pleases; that's one of the perks of omnipotence. Just surrender to him. None of us has the power to change by ourselves. In the realm of spiritual growth, we can't even tie our proverbial shoes without his help.

But I am praying for you man. Good luck.

Thank you.
I'm sure you know that I know all this, but it's good to hear it and have it knock me in the head from time to time.
I am really thankful for you, Paul; you have no idea.

Okay. Now I feel left out being the only Bush Crew kid who hasn't left a comment.
I don't have a question or a deep thought so maybe a random fact will do?
Mosquito's are attracted to the color blue twice as much as to any other color.

So there you go, stay away from blue and the mosquito's will stay away from you.

But in all seriousness, I will pray for you.

LOL, wow, I didn't know that. Where did you get that from? That's pretty cool, I don't even know they could destinquish colors.
Thank you, you have no idea how much that means me.

I just googled random facts and got that one from a random fact generator.

And you're welcome. =]
