Christians on Campus - Austin, Texas

Continuing from my post Christians on Campus - Transitioning into CollegeI applied to UT McCombs School of Business since I was headed toward the business field, but guess what, my application got denied. I knew it was a tough business school to get into but getting denied from the only school I wanted to enroll in was a total blow.

My parents, siblings, and all of my relatives began to worry about me, about my college career, about my future. My dad couldn't stop thinking how behind I was compared to my high school friends, who were already in freshmen in college. My grandma was worried if I would ever go to college. My siblings were wondering what I would do everyday with no school, no work, nothing. Usually other people's opinions would have so much weight on my decision-making, but I was clear within my being that I needed to do everything I could to get to Austin, Texas.

My last option was to apply to a community college in Austin. Everyone was not so happy about this decision. My family expected me to go to a four-year college right away. My high school teachers expected me to go to a prestigious university. Yet it was my choice, or shall I say, I knew within that my destination was already marked. I got accepted to Austin Community College. 

So here I come, Austin, Texas. Here I come, Christians on Campus. So here I come, Lord.

    1. God is sovereign indeed, Ashley. My years in Austin Community College were necessary. It was a great transition period for me, from high school to college, from home to a totally new country. :)

  3. Wow, that's so true. Failures are precious opportunities to experience more of God and allow Him to gain more of us.

    1. Indeed, Andrea. Failures are God's provisions to interject our little "plans" so that He can come in and be included in that particular aspect of our life.
