When our oldest daughter was getting ready for college, all of a sudden, she informed us she was changing her plans midway through her senior year in high school. All her life, she talked of going to art school. Now, she was feeling led to major in ministry.It was actually quite a shock to us because this was a total change in her plans. Her feeling was quite strong as to what school God was leading her toward and the way everything fell into place, it was obvious that she was right. Four years later, she is ready to graduate with a major in Biblical Studies and a minor in Ministry. She’s not really sure what she will do for a living, but we feel confident that God led her into this career choice, so he will provide for her in his time.
Now, it’s time to put our youngest daughter through college. Even though she was adamant that she would not go to the same university, it is once again obvious that God wants her there. So, after exploring several other schools, she has decided on the same place. Her calling is into a different career, but knowing that she is in a place where developing her faith is important, it will play a role in her future.
How will we pay for 2 children in a private university? I’m not sure, but so far we are doing okay. God seems to be providing a way for it to happen. If you have faith in him, he will make it happen if it’s his will.
