MN State University Mankato

So I have been looking at colleges to transfer to at some point. I really have been trusting God on this one. I actually was really excited about Indiana University in Bloomington. Ans I still think it would be fabulous to go to. But out of state, non-resident students, tuition including room and board, and such would be over 30 grand a year. As I told people about IU, a lot of people have asked me about going to MN for school. Since its out of state, but I would get in state tuition. So I was kinda debating about if it was I should do. And I wasn't sure if I would get my major there. Well FInally I looked up if MN State University Mankato had it, and YUP they have it :) I was rather excited. I feel right about that too. Dan went there, and I always have thought it was a pretty sweet school. So I just have to keep praying about it, and be sure its what God has planned, and not me just wanting to make it work. But like I said, I feel right about it, and I think it would be awesome.

Is it Wrong?

Is it wrong to feel so close to something, but not feel connected???
Meaning... Church. I am so involved there, I'm there almost everyday. Maybe that is my problem. I am doing things I like/love to do but I don't feel satisfied, or content with it all. The thing I feel God really pushing me to be involved with and be part of leadership, I can't, Not 100% sure why I can't, but yeah. I love Fox River, don't get me wrong. It's been a place where life change has happened for me. I just feel like its another thing to do there. If its not one area I'm working in, its another, I feel obligated to do things when I don't have to.
Then there is a whole respect issue. I by no means think I am awesome, and deserve all sorts of respect, and that people should treat me like I'm #1. But I work hard, I would really like a little more respect and trust from people. I feel I get treated like an idiot monkey.
I just hope/pray God will show His plan for me through all this!!!

Who Knew

Who knew painting and cleaning a kitchen could be so much stinkin' fun??? Honestly!!!!
This weekend, Sam and I went over to help Amy paint her kitchen. We had the best time ever, I couldn't even start to tell you all the random things that happened!!! Sam falling to the floor laughing, Me almost falling off the counter and the ladder because of laughing so hard.
I think it's so awesome when God gives me weekends that are awesome like this one has been. Cause no matter what happens in life, I have those friends, the memories, and that time shared together.

I have really been learning to surrender everything to God. I have seen/felt it in relationships, and just everything with school. Right now my biggest thing is surrendering every decision and trusting what he has in store for me. I kind of now have my heart set on a school, and I really feel good about it, and I feel/really hope that it is TRULY what God has planned for me. Indiana University has my attention for where I want to go. I trust God, and I feel it is where he is leading me. The only thing is cost, it is an expensive school. But I trust God, if it is where he wants me to go, he will provide.

I just want you guys to please prey for all the things that need to be done as far as all this goes, and that I can truly do what GOd has for me.

Well today I have made the decision to fast from my cell phone. I will be starting on Tuesday (tomorrow) and go till Saturday. I really feel like God has been pushing me to take a break from it. I am to dependent on it, and I need to have all dependent self On HIM! I am excited, cause I am listening to God, and He has taken that tug away because I have listened, and am following what he is telling me to do. Its a cool feeling :)

I just hope people will help me stay accountable.
I am so excited to have Sam joining my on this challenge, as she has felt the same tugging feeling, and call from God.
