After I got back to City Campus, I went to UNL Worship Night. It consisted of a bunch of people singing, giving high fives and hugs, prayer, more singing, and some good times! Plus, it is tough to beat some time praising the Creator of the Universe. God is pretty great, after all ;)
While I was at Worship Night, I did some praying. I asked God to show/reveal Himself, because I was feeling a bit like I was just singing, and not really experiencing His presence. Boy howdy, God sure does answer prayer!
I was thinking about...well actually I don't really remember, but apparently I was distracted. Then I felt like God was telling me to just sit down and talk with Him for a bit. (Not to, 'to' implies one-way conversation; 'with' implies an actual two-way conversation.)
So I sat down. And tried to listen. And I thought I heard God say, 'Psychology'
Oh, ok. So He also could have said, 'Geology' right? ehh..doubtful. I've been thinking about changing my major (again) to Psychology, but/because I am really not sure about what I want to do after college. Right now I am a Secondary Education - Natural Science(s) major. That means I would be able to teach grades 7-12 in science classes, hypothetically. Now, I think I would like that. I think I could do that. But I don't know if that is where God wants me or not.
I have also considered working in Youth Ministry in some way. I think I could do that, and I think I would like to do that. But I don't know if that is where God wants me or not.
So here I am, hearing, perceiving, whatever you want to call it, this word. Psychology. (God, is that really you? Unfortunately I did not see an angel or have a potential sacrifice to offer, as Gideon did [Judges 6]) And so I am thinking, 'Lord, I just switched to Secondary Ed, maybe I should just go with some of those classes and see how it feels?' I did not receive a direct/explicit reply, but I may have felt some sort of look, something like, 'Oh yeah? You think that is a better idea?' hahaha who is the smarter one here???
So, I basically pulled a Gideon and asked God to reaffirm that for me at some point in time. Obviously I will have to focus, and not be distracted by all the noise that is so prevalent in this world. Punks.
Can you tell that I like the story with Gideon?
