Liberty University: I’m ready!

Before going to Lebanon,  God showed me another sign.

Through the clarity and discernment of my circle of sisters in Christ, He showed me to return to college to get my Master’s Degree.  “Behold, I have done according to thy words: lo, I have given thee a wise and an understanding heart; so that there was none like thee before thee, neither after thee shall any arise like unto thee” (1 Kings 3:12).

Before deciding on what college to attend, I prayed to God that what I desire to do in the next stage of my life will be a total reflection of God’s kingdom and not myself. That is because being all about myself instead of how the Lord could use me to further His kingdom instead would be selfish. “Seek ye first the kingdom of God,band His righteousness, and all these things shall be added unto you” (Matthew 6:33).

After taking a moment to examine my heart’s intentions for God, I decided to apply to Liberty University,  which is a Christian college. I got accepted one week after I applied! God is so good in that He matched my heart’s desire with His desire to further His Kingdom! “Delight thyself also in the Lord; and He shall give thee the desires of thine heart” (Psalm 37:4).

In this next walk of my life, I will glorify Him first as I read books, write papers, and do homework on my God, who I will passionately pursue, in all of my studies. “For to be carnally minded is death; but to be spiritually minded is life and peace” (Romans 8:6).
