Hello! First of all, I would like to express how thankful I am for this community! You ladies are such a blessing! Secondly, this fall, I'll be attending a smaller, private, Christian university as a COLLEGE FRESHMAN! Sorry for yelling, but I just can't believe I'm already at this stage in my life! I was wondering if anyone had any tips for me to consider while going into this new season. I'm mostly nervous about not being completely sure of what I'm going to study. Everyone I've talked to, though, has said that I have some time to figure that out, so I'm trying to not worry about it too much. Anyway, thank you all, and I hope you all have a nice day!

Respond to This Prayer Request

  • June 25, 2015

    I am so glad you are have been encouraged through AGLM! That is encouraging for us to hear!
    The summer before college is so exciting! Some thoughts I have for you:
    - Soak up this summer! Savor the time with your family, friends, home, and whatever else you are doing now before you leave for college. Time seriously FLIES by. I can't believe I have been out of college for 3 years now...
    - Don't worry about the future and don't live in the future. Enjoy the moments now. Trust God with what he has given you now. Be obedient to what you know God is leading you to do now.
    I say that with your major questions too... Pray, seek wise counsel, but don't worry about it. Be wise in the major you choose, and evaluate what are your motivations, intentions, desires to please God with what you decide? God has given you freedom to choose! And the great thing is that you can't mess up God's plan for you because He is in control, not you!
    - And most importantly, just pray and ask God to help you fall more in love with Him every day. If you feel like you have too much to do with school, don't skip your time with hime every day. It's leaps and bounds more important than your school work. College is an amazing time. Seek Him, people that point you to Jesus, and just enjoy your time :)
