dissapointed.....and yet it works perfectly

have you ever been bummed out?
gotten your hopes up?

i did that these past couple months; gotten my hopes up.
there was this college that i really wanted to go to.
wanted to go there since i was in 8th or 9th grade.

well when the time came for me to apply, i did. except for one piece of paper work (which i have learned: this was as everybit as important as actually applying). i got this piece of paper work in the day it was due. ( i know i know....procrastination is BAD.) i was kinda hopefull about my admittence.

got a letter in the mail today from this school. when i saw where it was from, my heart started beating really fast and i became excited and nervous and knew what it said all at the same time.

i read the letter.
i was not accepted.

atleast not for this coming semester.

i was really bummed. i really wanted to cry.

but then i got to thinking, this works out. i had been very seriously considering staying here a year before i actually went off to school. then either the next semester or the next school year, i could transfer to "the school of my dreams" as they say. (yeah...don't ask me who "they" is. i don't know)

Romans 8:28 says "all things work together for good to those who love God.." i believe thats how it goes. either way, God knew that this would happen, and in the end, it will work out for HIS glory. thats what you and i were put on this earth for. to GLORIFY HIM.

that makes this situation ALOT better, no?

happy wednesday night friends!

Just remain flexible- He can be trusted!

Core @ USCB or TCL ?

(I'm personally GLAD you'll be around, but I don't mean that in a hurtful sort of way!!)
