Putting My Faith in God

In this previous post, I wrote about how letting go of other people's expectations and biases set me on the path to pursuing a Master of Social Work degree. I did not make this decision alone. I merely opened myself up to see God's will and His intentions for me.

I believe that God has blessed me with certain abilities and interests so that I can serve Him in the social work profession. That's why whenever I started to worry about a paper I had to write in the class I took as a non-matriculated student, or whether I would get into the program ... I never got very far in my worrying. I knew that if God wanted me to go down this path, then I would do well in the class, and I would be accepted to the Master program.

That's not to say I didn't try. I definitely studied and worked hard at my class, and poured myself into putting together my application and personal statement. And if things didn't turn out the way I hoped, it's possible that it just meant God wanted me to try another way. The point is, I needed only to open my eyes and ears to Him. He is with me always and I place all my fears and faith in Him.
