During these forums, which happen every fall and spring semester, 1-2 Milligan graduates are brought in to share about their lives after Milligan. It's to show us seniors that not having a plan is ok, and not following a plan is ok.
One of the speakers was our cheer and dance coach. She graduated from Milligan in 1997 with a plan to teach. She taught locally for 5 years, had a baby, stayed home, became a speaker for retreats, came back to Milligan to coach cheer and teach part time, and then finally became full time.
I left out one major part of her story. She kept saying one thing that I could not get out of my head. At every turn in her life, and most days, she prayed a certain prayer. She prayed that God would show her the way to go and that she would do his will.
I have so many people trying to advise me where I should go (which I am BEYOND grateful for those people caring so much about me to give me advice) but I struggle with listening to others and not God. I pray every night he will not only show me where I should go, but that I will listen and know.
Today I have my third Grad School interview. And next Friday my fourth. Within the next month or so I have to make a decision...and I pray I make the right one!
